This off-season Carmelo Anthony did the unexpected, he stayed. Melo had many offers on the table this off-season from many prestigious franchises such as the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, and Los Angeles Lakers but he chose to stay in the big apple. With Phil Jackson taking over as President and a very new coach in Derek Fisher, Carmelo Anthony felt comfortable enough to take the Knicks offer. I’d be comfortable too with a 5 year, $125 million dollar contract. This season will be interesting to see how it all works out but one thing is for sure and that is Carmelo Anthony is “The New Yorker” for the possible next 5 seasons!
You see players jump in the stands all the time but they plays are usually dead after that. Today Jimmy Butler jumped in the stands and had to continue playing so he ran through the stands until he found an opening in the first row to get back on the court. Butler showed to never give up no matter what might be in the way!
