New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony done for season


 

Carmelo Anthony may have played his last game with the New York Knicks.

According to the twitter account of the Knicks’ PR department, Anthony has a small tear to his labrum and will sit out the Knicks’ final two games.

 

With the Knicks eliminated from playoff contention, there is really no reason to play Anthony any more this season. The Knicks are still the favorite to keep Anthony, especially with the addition of Phil Jackson, which Anthony referred to as “a big play.”

Anthony will be the talk of New York for the next few months because he can become a free agent and test the open market for the first time in his career.

He is expected to have several suitors, including the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers.

Anthony averaged 27.4 points, 8.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game this season.

  • Real M-Fing talk !!!

    What Car”ME”lo has is a small tear of the Labia, minora …that’s not news, now SHUT UP and stop making excuses for this gutless wonder, ever since Melo entered the NBA he has been just that mellow, a non factor… Carmelo had great teams in Denver and he was more concerned with leaving than carrying a team on his back… Now people want to say he has no help, trust me it would not make any difference… Melo has “the heart of chipmunk”…. demonstrated went he tried to fight an unamed Celtic…. if a man insulted my wife, i am not waiting after any stupid game, thats way too long cooler heads would have prevailed by then, and we can’t have that, can we? …. i am handling my business right there on the court… NBA be damned, that’s just me…
    i would think nothing means more to a man than family, but again, that’s just me !
