Carmelo Anthony To The New York Knicks: Did He Handle His Departure In The Most Honourable Way?

After seven months of trade rumours that started in the summer, Carmelo Anthony finally got his wish yesterday and was traded to the New York Knicks. This is not the first act of Superstars taking matters into their own hands, as we saw Lebron James and Chris Bosh hold auction style bidding wars for their services last summer. The results of this Carmelo move are the same, a Superstar picked a city (NY) he wanted to play for and picked another Superstar (Amar’e) that he wanted to play with, but he went about it differently.

He and his people made it clear from before the season started that he wanted to leave Denver and go to NY, and due to the word being out, the tension being high, and the media being rampant around the team, the Nuggets have struggled with issues this season despite having a deep and talented roster.

One, I don’t think Melo is that good, isn’t a defensive guy, and won’t work with Amar’e Stoudemire. Second, everyone talks about NY so much I would rather have them be decent then the joke of a team they have been in the last few years. It is nice to have all the big market teams (NY, LA, Chicago, Boston) in the mix Read more…
