LaLa is from Brooklyn and was a Knicks fan growing up. Melo’s wife spoke to Amanda Sidman of the NY Daily News: “Us being in New York is a possibility. It depends on ‘Melo’s career and where it takes him. There’s a lot of talk about the Knicks, I mean, there’s a lot of teams out there, he’s a great player and I think collectively we just need to think about what makes sense for our family. But I would never say that being in New York is not an option, I’d be lying to you if I said that.’”
