Carmelo Anthony continues to make me laugh

You could have left.  You could have won a championship.  You could have gotten out of the rebuilding.  You now will not see the playoffs or a record over .500 for the forseable future.  Who am I talking about you ask…Carmelo Anthony.carmelo-anthony1

Carmelo Anthony was the biggest free agent two summers ago.  The Bulls, Lakers, Rockets, Mavericks, Suns and many others contacted Anthony and made their pitch.  The Chicago Bulls were the front runner at one point for Melo has talked about teaming up with Rose.  He had also made comments on how he liked what Chicago was doing.  But in the end, he upset everyone and returned to the Knicks.

Anthony signed a five year 124 million dollar contract to stay in New York back in the summer of 2014.

Anthony then played barely any of the season before getting knee surgery and sitting out most of the season.

Carmelo Anthony has added to his list of media responses as he stated: “We’re competing.  People may not believe that, but we are definitely competing for (a title).”

When I first saw this, I laughed.  Good for him that he has some confidence for the first time in two years, but no.  He should get fined for saying this because it’s just embarrassing.

HOW CAN CARMELO SAY THIS.  THE KNICKS DO NOT EVEN HAVE A TRUE STARTING LINEUP.  THE NECH IS TRASH AND WHO KNOWS IF MELO WITH BE HEALTHY.  IF HE GETS HURT AGAIN, MIGHT HASE WELL TANK AGAIN.

The Knicks got no love in free agency.  Their biggest signing was Robin Lopez….yeah that’s it.  Aaron Affalo came to the Knicks too but he got too much money in my opinion.  The Knicks were slapped in the face and it’s just hilarious.  MAYBE IF PHIL JACKSON DIDN’T DRAFT KRISTAPS PORZINGIS SOMEONE WOULD HAVE WANTED TO GO AND PLAY FOR DEREK FISHER.  PROZINGIS IS A GOOD PLAYER BUT HE MAY NOT BE READY FOR 2-3 YEARS.  THE KNICKS NEEDED SOMEONE TO BE READY NOW! THAT SEEMED TO BE THE PLAN BUT NO, THE KNICKS WASTED THE LOTTERY PICK.

 

Right after the Knicks drafted Prozingis, Anthony came out and criticized the front office decision.  Since when is Carmelo Anthony in charge? HE SIGNED THE DEAL TO STAY WITH A REBUILDING TEAM, IF YOU DIDN’T LIKE IT THAT’S YOUR OWN FAULT.

Carmelo-Anthony-Dunk-19Anthony had the chance to leave.  Melo has the chance to come to Chicago and bring home a championship since Jordan.  Melo had the opportunity to be on a winning team but no, he wants money over wins when he talks about winning all the time.  That decision back in 2014 showed how selfish a person can be.

I used to like Carmelo.  He used to be one of my favorite players until he started to run his mouth.  I wanted him in Chicago.  It was going to be fun to see him and Rose play together but he was all about the money.  A talented player is now wasting his career on a rebuilding team that may be tanking once again this year.
