Chris Paul Wants to Form ‘Big Three’ in New York?
Newsday‘s spies at Melo’s wedding this past weekend say Chris Paul made a rather interesting speech (and pitch) during the ceremony: “Could Broadway get its own Big Three? While addressing guests at Carmelo Anthony ‘s wedding in Manhattan on Saturday, Chris Paul made it known that he is open to the idea. According to multiple sources who attended the wedding, which was held at Cipriani on 42nd Street, there was a common theme among the best wishes to Anthony and his new bride, television personality LaLa Vazquez: that they should consider taking up permanent residence in New York and that Anthony should take the challenge LeBron James passed on with the Knicks. And with less-than-pleased Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke in attendance, Paul – during his address to the happy couple – said he wants to get Anthony to come with him and join Amar’e Stoudemire with the Knicks ‘and form our own Big Three’ to challenge the newly formed Miami triumvirate of James , Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Stoudemire, who also attended the wedding, loved what he heard. When he first arrived in New York the previous Saturday night, he reportedly said, ‘I’ve talked to Carmelo Anthony that he needs to come out here.’”
