Year: 2014
Artist: Kehinde Wiley

Carmelo Anthony has a deeper history of self love than anyone else on this list. He posed with this piece by Kehinde Wiley earlier this year, painted for Grey Goose's “Le Melon” campaign, but everyone remembers the painting of Melo that used to hang in living room. In a post about the painting on Deadspin, a wise commenter pointed out that in an old episode of MTV Cribs, Melo had a painting of himself standing back-to-back with Jesus. Melo was painted palming a basketball while Jesus was palming the Earth, and the words “Blood Brothers” appeared below them. Absolute gold.
