You would think that a professional basketball player of average intelligence would recognize an evening when his shot wasn't falling and decide that if he isn't going to get thirty points, he'd try his damndest to get thirty rebounds. Well, Carmelo Anthony is not of average intelligence and was hell bent on forcing poor shots whether or not he was double teamed or off balanced.
Since he has arrived in NYC the Knicks have a losing record and Stoudemire and Fields have become shells of themselves. Instead of uplifting the players around him Carmelo Anthony has lowered everyone's game.
Are you waiting for my solution to the problem? There isn't one. You are going to have to suffer through this for the next six years. Good luck with that.
So let's recap shall we. In order to acquire Anthony and make room for his salary the Knicks traded to Denver Danillo Gallinari, Raymond Felton, Timofey Mozgov and Wilson Chandler along with two second round picks the Knicks acquired in the trade of David Lee to Golden State. The Knicks also traded Anthony Randolph and Eddie Curry's expiring contract, which probably would have been enough to get Chris Paul, to Minnesota for Corey Brewer, who would have made a nice two or three for the Knicks but was promptly sent to Dallas. Brewer was able to cash that bright idea into a championship ring. Do you still think it was a good idea to give up all that talent and cap space for Marshmelo?
But I digress, the Knicks Lose Again Phoenix 91 - Knicks 88
