The New York Knicks have lost 10 of their last 12 games and as I write this, they are a few minutes away from being blown out by the Atlanta Hawks on Martin Luther King Jr.’s day of all days. Last week was an emotional rollercoaster as I went back and forth between #CancelTheSeason and THE KNICKS ARE BACK. I only have two speeds and I think I’m ready to punt.
Kristaps Porzingis doesn’t have an achilles. Sit him for the season. Derrick Rose just vanished without telling anyone in the Knicks organization and demanded a max contract the next day. Joakim Noah would look just as athletic in a wheelchair. This season is over.
The Knicks finally have a first round draft pick. Why not make the most of it and tank the season. Last time the Knicks decided to tank, they ended up with DOCTOR DOOM. It’s time to build a championship team from scratch and stop trying to sign 30+ year old injury prone statues.
In order for the Knicks to make it to the next level, they need to dump some dead weight, AKA, Carmelo, the melo, Anthony. Here’s what Phil Jackson has to say about Anthony:
Among the complaints from Jackson through Rosen: Anthony’s athleticism is gone, Anthony isolates too much, Anthony is “shooting blanks” in the fourth, Anthony saves his energy on defense, and then haymaker, “Carmelo Anthony has outlived his usefulness in New York.”
Yup, everything Phil Jackson is saying is true. Why do we pretend like Carmelo is one of the best players still? Now that his shooting stroke has vanished, the fuck is the point of him being on this team?
Trade Carmelo Anthony for literally anything. Players, draft picks, chopped cheese sandwiches. Just remove him from this roster so that Doctor Doom can have a sidekick next season. Please and thank you.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think the Knicks benefit from a Carmelo Anthony trade. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
