Among the hundreds marching in Baltimore in support of Freddie Gray on Thursday was NBA star Carmelo Anthony, who moved to the city as a child.
Anthony is still a cornerstone of this franchise, and unless he waives his no-trade clause that isn’t going to change. The Knicks would be wise to remember that when they start hunting for free agents.
Melo — a Brooklyn-born star of the Knicks who was raised in Baltimore — took to social media as unrest turned violent Monday night.
There were times, Carmelo Anthony acknowledges, he wondered if he made the right decision to stay in New York.
After hearing what was muttered by Carmelo Anthony, Boomer and Craig did some reacting.
The ping-pong balls bounce in May. The draft happens in June. Free agency starts in July. The Knicks need to do well in all three. The rebuild starts now.
When can New Yorkers expect the Knicks to be relevant again? Nothing they’ve done this year injects any hope. At 13-53 they make you ashamed to say you’re from the five boroughs.
What have the Knicks done over the last decade to earn your time, trust or cash? Is your income so disposable that you can drop a grand to watch the home team get vaporized by sub-.500 clubs?
The partnership that had so much promise but such limited success lasted just four years before the high-scoring forwards went in separate directions: Amar’e to Dallas, Anthony to the operating table.
Melo possibly missing up to a half-year caught many off guard, including the Dynamic Radio Duo of Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton, so it was there that Thursday’s fun began.
A nightmare season for the Knicks is about to get a whole lot worse.
Carmelo Anthony doesn’t appreciate people questioning his desire to play in the NBA All-Star Game this weekend at Madison Square Garden.
Knicks star Carmelo Anthony says he’d like to play in Sunday’s All-Star Game, even if it’s just short enough for a hi-how-ya-doing to the home crowd. But the optics aren’t good.
The Golden State Warriors’ guard might be the man of the weekend, and even he can’t believe how quickly it’s happened after he was an All-Star snub just two years ago.
Craig got things started Friday morning by suggesting ya’ll start drinkin’, which was pretty sound advice if you happen to be a fan of the Knicks.
