Carmelo Anthony

The Knicks might not have the sexiest lineup on paper next season, but they’ve locked down franchise player Carmelo Anthony for the rest of his prime. Last summer mercurial owner James Dolan was pitching his team as a title contender. After their second-round exit at the hands of the Pacers in 2013, that title-contention didn’t need to be slathered in hyperbole to be digested by Knicks fans. Then their 2013-14 season turned into a nightmare exacerbated by the owner’s expectations, and so this summer ‘Melo was a little bit more realistic when talking to Puerto Rican newspaper, Primera Hora.
