Meanwhile, it appears teams are salivating at the prospect of teaming up Anthony and his four-time MVP friend, free-agent-to-be LeBron James.
LeBron delivered his message loud and clear, without actually saying a word. He’s willing to leave Miami. Just don’t expect him to land in New York.
A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that LeBron James has decided to opt out of the final two years of his contract with the Miami Heat and become a free agent on July 1.
Carmelo Anthony is putting himself on the free agent market. The star forward has informed the Knicks of his long-expected plans, his agent confirmed Monday.
We hear from the rumor mill that Carmelo Anthony is the answer to the Heat’s woes. Makes sense. A team needs passing and defense and then gets a guy who can’t pass or play defense.
No one had a bigger turnaround than Ginobili. He might not have won or deserved the MVP, but he was the difference-maker.
What more can be said about the Spurs? It probably doesn’t matter, since they only care about the court — where they are the real kings.
LeBron James went to the bench midway through the fourth quarter, took a seat and covered his eyes with his left hand. His night was over. His reign atop the NBA, also over.
The Spurs finished off a dominant run to their fifth NBA championship Sunday night, ending the Heat’s two-year title reign with a 104-87 victory that wrapped up the series in five games.
In the age of me over we ball, Duncan is a corrupt cliche – a winner.We judge stars by rings more than ever. The Heat didn’t win; LeBron won. Kobe or Shaq won a decade ago. But when the Spurs win, Duncan is part of a greater whole, lost in a selfless, Vulcan coda.
The Spurs are a better basketball team than the Miami Heat. At this point, it might not even be that close, either.
It’s too soon to say whether Melo will bolt for greener pastures. But the Knicks superstar will be testing free agency unless he has “a dramatic change of heart,” according to the Daily News.
Kawhi Leonard had 20 points and 14 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs dominated the Miami Heat again in a 107-86 victory Thursday night to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals.
The Heat were losing, apparently, because Mario Chalmers wasn’t playing well. Huh? That is completely missing the true narrative of this series: The Miami Heat can’t stop the Spurs from scoring.
Carmelo Anthony just wants to win. And a chance to team up with the Miami Heat’s Big Three could be too good to pass up.
