Without specifying either the Knicks or Nets, Carmelo Anthony said on Friday that his "ultimate" dream would be to play in New York. "That's like the ultimate dream at the end of the day," Anthony said. "Who wouldn't want to go back home to play?"
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: New York, New York.
After months of keeping quiet and letting the internet news-cycle run wild, Carmelo Anthony finally stated his dream was to return home to New York and play for the Knicks.
Fair enough. New York is familiar. The Knicks are pretty good. Madison Square Gardens is legendary. And the city also happens to be the media capital of the world.
Now the parties involved –the Knicks, Denver Nuggets, Anthony, and possibly a third team like the Memphis Grizzlies- need to make this happen.
No more talking. No more hints. No more anonymous sources. Lock yourselves in a room and agree on a deal.
Of course, the New Jersey Nets and all other suitors must back off. After all, Anthony is a free agent, meaning he can pick where he wants to play at season’s end.
So the Nets could trade for him and have him walk at season’s end to sign with the cross-town Knicks.
Hopefully, this scenario scares off the Nets. And hopefully, a resolution to this Melo’ drama is coming.
