What’s more, ’Melo has made it exceedingly clear (privately) to one and all from the git-go that the Knicks are his first choice. So, should he chose to become a free agent this summer, please don’t insult our common sense by telling us Warkentien — if even still employed by the Knicks — had anything to do with New York signing him.Interesting. But what also is interesting is how the Hall of Fame Stanner has tracked the story. In November, the Knicks were "a viable option":
However, I must confess to being a bit floored when Brooklyn's gift to Baltimore (the borough's 18-year-negotiation for Skip Wise as compensation is rumored on The Corners to be almost resolved) again divulged to The Post he has not ruled out his home team as a possible landing zone.Don't reach for your spectacles, you got that right; the Knicks remain a viable option. I repeat, a viable option.But then it was Nets, Nets and more Nets, while taking viscous swings at media members including ESPN's Chris Sheridan, who confirmed a TKB report that has been also been confirmed nationally as recently as this week (even if you have to scroll below the fold.) By the way, anyone conscious knows Alan Hahn broke Lebron to Miami.
No doubt the same fountains of misinformation that frequently play make-believe with ESPN's Chris Sheridan, whose latest fairy tale had Carmelo Anthony notifying the Nuggets he won't accept a trade to any team but the Knicks.If Melo would sign off on the Nets, he'd be a Net already and unless something drastically changes, the Nets are as knocked out as Rick DiPietro. As the Carmelo saga continues, so do the Hall of Famer's (who's lost, I'm told, all, and I mean ALL of Donnie Walsh's trust because of this) insults, this time pointed at MSG's Tina Cervasio and Kelly Tripuka.
While I thoroughly accept the presupposition 'Melo will want to play in New York until the moment he understands that's an impossibility unless he opts to become a free agent this summer, Sheridan's account is such a fake he needs to be called out...Even Sheridan's invented informants, I suspect, might be able to smell the aroma of a potential Nets deal brewing once Wednesday rolls around and summer free-agent signees are allowed to be traded.
Naturally, Madison Square Garden’s postgame interviewer whose nightly questioning is so sophomorically scrawny she doesn’t even deserve dishonorable mention in this space, did not ask the small forward anything about his staggering career high achievement.
Too bad; it might’ve alerted permanently unimpressive studio co-host Kelly Tripucka to Iguodala exceeding his season assist average by 10.1.Talk about sophomoric. Wow, in the spirit of Super Bowl Sunday I say flag on the play!
