Carmelo Anthony: New York Knicks Must Trade SF After 62-Point Effort

Carmelo Anthony

Noah K. Murray – USA TODAY Sports

Any NBA fan with even an inch of basketball knowledge knows what Carmelo Anthony is all about. Sure, his playoff record might be historically bad and No. 7 definitely isn’t a prototypical “team” player, but this small forward surely knows how to fill a stat sheet. On Friday, Anthony reminded folks exactly why he belongs in the same gym as Oklahoma City Thunder stalwart and MVP candidate Kevin Durant.

The Charlotte Bobcats trekked to Madison Square Garden fresh off an impressive win over the Los Angeles Clippers, but the team would leave the Empire State with nothing but a big “L” in its pocket. Anthony dropped 62 points on the Bobcats and the only thing that NBA fans can think of is if the small forward is going to be traded — oh, the NBA ceases to amaze.

However, there is some logic behind the “Trade Carmelo” theory. In fact, the Knicks would be downright foolish to let Anthony walk after the season without dealing the small forward for at least some sort of draft pick. Unfortunately, New York’s front office hasn’t a clue how to run a team as the Knicks’ stubborn management is just watching Anthony’s trade value drop by the day.

Even still, if the Knicks’ forward continues to score over 60 points a game, then Anthony might be in a different uniform before the month of February even hits.
