Rumor: Michael Jordan wants to bring Carmelo Anthony to Charlotte?
Bobcats owner Michael Jordan is pushing to acquire Carmelo Anthony from the Nuggets, according to a league source. The Knicks and Nets have spent a lot of time on the phone with the Nuggets and popular belief is that Anthony wants to play in New York.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Michael Jordan could do anything on-the-court. Years later, Jordan the owner and executive does not possess the same skill off-the-court.
So the Tsar of the Charlotte Bobcats can dream of Carmelo Anthony. He can talk to the Denver Nuggets. Heck, he can even acquire the superstar in a trade.
Suppose Jordan traded for Anthony before the February deadline. Even ‘The Greatest of all Time’ wouldn’t be able to get Melo’ to sign a multi-year extension with the Bobcats.
Jordan’s legacy doesn’t matter. Neither does his business relationship with Anthony through Brand Jordan.
Charlotte is like Denver. It’s small. And Anthony is thinking big –real big. In fact, sources indicate the small forward is determined to end up with the New York Knicks.
After all, Anthony and his wife both have ties to New York, the media capital of the world. The Knicks will also spend to win. And forty-one nights a year he’d playing in historic Madison Square Gardens with budding superstar Amar’e Stoudemire.
Unfortunately, Jordan can’t compete with that -unless he can turn back the clock to 1997 and decides to suit up.
