All Images: GettyThe recent trade of NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks has dominated sports discussion and headlines since the moment it happened. Fans of the Knicks are ecstatic that their once proud franchise can now officially return to relevance. Lost in the uproar, however, is the potential economic surge this trade will likely have. Not just for Anthony, who signed a three-year $65 million contract extension as part of the deal, but for the NYC area as well. Former NBA player and now TNT analyst Kenny Smith shares a few of the ways that Anthony�s Big Apple acquisition can change the financial stakes for him, his new team and business owners in the entire tri-state area. —Khalid Salaam

What a difference a year makes. When the list of 2011 Academy Award nominees was announced last month, there was one glaring difference. Compared to last year’s contenders, which included Morgan Freeman for Invictus, Gabourey Sidibe for Precious and Mo’Nique who brought home the gold man for her portrayal in Precious, there was an obvious lack of people of color. Truth be told, the 2011 awards show represents the Whitest group of nominees in the major acting categories since the 73rd Oscars, 10 years ago.

This past Monday, the comic book, animation and entertainment worlds lost one of its legends with the passing of writer/producer Dwayne McDuffie. A true trailblazer, he helped redefine the image of African Americans through his multicultural characters and brands, which inspired a new generation of comic book writers, animators, illustrators and fans. Also, an entrepreneur, McDuffie—along with Denys Cowan, Michael Davis and Black Enterprise ’s own Derek T. Dingle—founded Milestone Media, Inc., the nation’s largest Black-owned comic book company. 	Despite his passing, McDuffie will live on in the hearts of his family and friends, but also through his impactful work. In continued memory of the fallen artist, BlackEnterprise.com pulled together a collection of some of McDuffie’s most popular characters to illustrate why he’ll always be our superhero.
