After what felt like years of rumors and negotiations, Carmelo Anthony is finally a Knick. The Knicks added the superstar for a hefty price, but now paired with Amar’e Stoudemire, the Knicks have two of the 10 players that started in the All-Star Game over the weekend.
Currently sitting at sixth in the Eastern Conference, the Knicks are primed for a run that should see them reach the postseason for the first time since 2003-04. And with two of the game’s best players on the same roster in New York, the Eastern Conference has become a powerhouse with the Knicks, Celtics, Heat, Bulls, Magic and Hawks all boasting elite talent.
