Carmelo Anthony Willing to Become a Free Agent to Win a Championship

It’s basically a foregone conclusion that Carmelo Anthony will be a free agent this summer, and the New York Knicks superstar says that if that’s the route that leads him to his first NBA title, then so be it. Per Basketball Insiders:

    Change “willing” to “plans”…

    Buawaaah?… Why would you want to win a championship? It’s not that important to your legacy…

    Yo if you’re the Knicks do you trade him at this point?

    I think they have to explore the option. It’s a matter of getting back equal talent. Idk that there’s a trade out there that will get the Knicks a star player back.

    The Knicks have stated they won’t trade Melo, but at this point I believe they have no other choice but to trade him, to me it seems like it’s almost a foregone conclusion he is leaving NY. If the Knicks don’t trade him then the same thing will happen to them that happened to the Lakers, they’ll lose the future of the franchise for nothing. If James Dolan was smart he would trade Melo, but he won’t because he’s the East Coast Version of Jim Buss.

    “Starting at power forward, for your Miami Heat, Carmeloooooo Anthony.”

    Just kidding…I think.

    they don’t have to trade melo. i think he wants to stay and win a chip with the knicks. the thing its it is not possible right now. so he will become a free agent and try to attract other good players to new york, then sign in with the knicks again. to trade him right now would be premature, they also still can make up a sign and trade if everything goes wrong. melo always wanted to be a knick, i don’t think he will leave them for nothing and wants to stay anyway in the first place

    The same shitee players be following Melo. Where ever he goes i hope Jr Smith doesn’t follow. The dude is amazing for a plague.

    A Melo/Chandler/Felton and 1st round draft pick to the Spurs for Kawhi, Green, Manu, Splitter would be dope. Throw in a third team like say…the Lakers and you can dump cap because realistically they’re the only team that has New York money. So Gasol goes to New York with a Wes Johnson or Xavier Henry, and Swaggy P, and they finally send Nash home, Sooo…

    Knicks get:

    Lakers get:

    Spurs get:
    Swaggy P

    I guess you knew and blew a good thing…….

  • vannshy

    … are you high or something ?

  • so what

    Check this trade

    Phoenix gives Danny Ainge one of their picks. Plus Okafor’s expiring contract.
    Knicks give C’s 2018 pick.

    Phoenix gets depth for playoff run.

    Melo gets his superstar sidekick

    LOL…you guys must not know what the CBA means. Laugh now…Feb. 20th.

  • Mars

    you almost have to because he can basically walk like LeBron did, and you get nothing back.

    Trust me teams that want to win now i.e. Spurs, Lakers, Knicks…they’re looking to go big and bust before they have to rebuild. Those are all options for Melo but he want to win now. New York has the money but he’s rich already so that doesn’t matter to him. He’ll most likely join another superstar.
