The Deal Is Done And Carmelo Anthony Is A New York Knick
Congratulations to the New York Knicks on landing a superstar in Carmelo Anthony. Twelve players, $3M, three teams, three draft picks, lots of moving around, but the deal is done and Carmelo Anthony is a New York Knick. Amen!
Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudamire are two players who wanted to play together and wanted to play for the New York Knicks. That is very important and we should not lose sight of it. This is an opportunity for the Knicks to challenge Boston Celtics and Miami Hea,t first for the conference title and then go for a championship.
This will not happen this year but by next year hopefully with Chris Paul or Derron Williams, they will be ready. Carmelo will play on Wednesday night and I know Madison Square Garden is going to be at fever pitch. Win or lose the Knicks have hope again. We don’t miss Lebron now. People need to look at the Miami Heat and how they are coming together as a great team. They are two superstars and one star saying at the end of it all we would rather pool our talents for the common goal of winning championships, rather than being great individually in our separate cities. Lebron, Dwayne and Bosh are all playing great. Knicks have an example to follow and they will be just fine.
The Knicks have given up many to get one and the one is more valuable than all the pieces put together. The Knicks just need to add to the two stars that they have. There is no depth at this time, but they are moving forward in the right direction. Players like Carmelo Anthony come around once in a blue moon for each team. If the Cleveland Cavaliers had traded Lebron James they would have been better off today. Look how great Lebron is and he alone couldn’t bring them a championship in seven years. Some people think this is a case of the tail wagging the dog, but both Lebron and Carmelo stayed seven years and played their hearts out for the teams that drafted them. Should they be prevented from leaving to another city after serving their seven years? What do you think?
