Melo-Drama Is Finally Over
I’m sure that many Knick fans are happy about the trade, but do you remember in 2006 when Carmelo Anthony threw a sucker punch at MSG? I do, that’s the day I lost all respect for him. Not only did he throw a weak and sissy-like punch at a defenseless Mardy Collins, but then he ran to the other end of the gym. Now that’s NOT a man. If you’re going to have the audacity to throw a sucker punch, you should at least have the guts to stand there and take his best shot.
As someone who loves Big East Basketball and saw Syracuse play 3x on their championship run I used to enjoy watching him as he played such a big role in them winning it all. But after that event in the World’s Most Famous Arena, I lost all respect for Anthony.
In my opinion, it’s too bad that the Knicks traded for him as they were the only NY team that I actually enjoyed cheering for. Either way, it should make things more interesting in the east. Plus we’ll get to hear Walt “Clyde” Frazier say many unique and finely pronounced adjectives about Melo. I wonder if he’ll ever bring up that night in ’06.
In case you forgot or never say it, here’s a link to some really bad footage of that bad showing at MSG.
