Kristaps Porzingis STILL needs Carmelo Anthony…
Yup, I said it, and have always believed it and Porzingis aka “The Unicorn” believes it as well.
“I think it would make life harder for me on the court (if Anthony was traded),” Porzingis told the Daily News. “He makes stuff easier for me.”
When KP and the Knicks defeated the NJ Nets Wednesday night, Knicks’ fans who have booed Melo at MSG finally saw their vision come true; KP leading the Knicks without Melo (on the bench for the 4th quarter).
As a Knicks fan I am always happy when the Knicks win, but we have to be realistic. KP is 0-8 when Melo doesn’t play, and I realize it’s a small sample size but still relevant. KP will be a very good and possibly a great player but he still has a lot to learn and prove in the NBA.
“There’s still a lot more things I want to learn from Melo,” Porzingis told The News. “So I would love to have him around for a long time. I always love playing with Melo.”
So Knicks fans, while I agree that it maybe time for Melo to be traded, at the same time we have to be careful of a couple of things. We can’t afford to get rid of Melo and get trash in return, and the organization needs a plan moving forward to develop KP and have an identity for the Knicks.
One last thing… Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday Knicks fans will miss Melo when he is gone!
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
