Spike Lee: ‘Carmelo Anthony will be with the Knicks’
Acclaimed director and longtime Knicks fan Spike Lee is certain that Carmelo Anthony will play for his team in the near future.
"I have just one sentence for you," Lee told The New York Post on Saturday night. "Carmelo Anthony will be with the Knicks if God is willing and the creek don’t rise."
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Spike Lee’s comments made it official.
Every man, woman, child, dog, cat, goldfish and gerbil has now weighed in on the Carmelo Anthony to New York rumors.
In fact, in case you missed it:
1) The Pope cut short his weekly address to followers at the Vatican because he was upset the Knicks were willing to sacrifice Wilson Chandler to get ‘Melo. The Pope apparently likes Chandler’s upside.
2) Nelson Mandela, the dedicated humanitarian, stopped his latest charitable endeavours in South Africa to examine if Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire can co-exist with the Knicks.
3) Democrats and Republicans halted their campaigns for Tuesday’s Mid-Term Elections. Even with a floundering tattered economy and war in Afghanistan, both political parties felt it pertinent to spend several days discussing the national emergency known as the Anthony trade rumors.
Expect a congressional hearing –and soon.
Jokes and hyperbole aside, this is getting ridiculous. Despite his comments, Anthony won’t re-sign with Denver. One way or another, he’ll end up in New York.
The Nuggets, Knicks, and Anthony’s people should lock themselves in a room and make it happen. Enough is enough.
