The New York Knicks are starting to finally get hot after starting the season off embarrassingly slow. From the drama with Mike Woodson to the J.R. Smith saga, it has been a rough year for the Knicks so far but none of their earlier struggles compare to the painful mystery surrounding what Carmelo Anthony plans to do this offseason.
Melo is expected to hit the free agent market this summer and many Knicks fans are wondering if their team will be able to re-sign it’s star forward. Many people have weighed in on the topic, and rumors have Melo going anywhere from Chicago to Los Angeles. But Melo’s wife La La Anthony stated she thinks her husband will re-sign with the Knicks, something Melo isn’t backing off of.
“That’s my wife, I support her,” Anthony said after going for 24 points and 9 rebounds as the Knicks beat the Celtics, 114-88, Wednesday at Madison Square Garden. “I support what she said. I don’t think she said anything wrong; it’s a good thing for her to say that.”
This perhaps the most informative and encouraging news Knicks fans have gotten about Melo’s plans for the future. He won’t make a decision until the summer, but the fact that he’s not trying to back off his wife’s quote about re-signing with the Knicks seems to be a very good sign of New York.
