The “MELO DRAMA” Is Over!!! Carmelo Anthony Is Coming To The New York Knicks & “The World’s Most Famous Arena”: Madison Square Garden. As a Lifelong, “DIE HARD” Knicks Fan, I have NOT been this excited since the days of Latrell Sprewell, Allan Houston, & “Grandmama” Larry Johnson about NBA Basketball in the Mecca better known as The “BIG APPLE”.
Don’t get me Wrong. Just like the rest of the world, I was absolutely sick & tired of hearing the incessant speculation of where is Carmelo going? New Jersey? Chicago? L.A.? Well, it’s The City. This was like the day when the Knickerbockers hit the lottery (Literally) in 1985 when all of the Oliver Stone Conspiracy Theorists believe there was a “FROZEN” envelope which ensured the team would land 3 Time All-American Patrick Ewing from Georgetown.
Now Howard Stern, Chris Rock, and of course Spike Lee will have something to actually be proud of now that their hometown team has “The BIG 2″ with Melo & Amar’e Stoudemire. They’ll still have to wait at least two more summers to acquire Chris Paul or Deron Williams to make it “THE BIG 3″ like they have in Miami with D. Wade, LeBron, & Chris Bosh.
The Biggest Winners besides the Knicks are the NBA & Commissioner David Stern. For the first time in a very LONGGGGG Time, Basketball is Relevant once again N.Y.C., Boston, Miami, Chicago, & Orlando. Turn the clock back to the 1980′s and fire up some Simple Minds: “Don’t You Forget About Me”. The NBA is BACK in New York “FREAKING” City Baby!!!
