Knicks Rumors: Carmelo Anthony Has Bigger Things to Worry About Than Lin Drama
The blame is still flying around for the results of Jeremy Lin's first foray into free agency.
Much as he tried to run away from that "ridiculous contract" quote, Anthony's scrambling came in vain. "Melo didn't want Lin back, I do know that," said one source who has extensive dealings with the Knicks and their players. "Everybody in that locker room wanted Lin back except Melo and J.R. Smith."
Okay. So what?
Why exactly does it matter what Melo thinks about the Lin situation?
It's not like he's the one who actually let him get away and escape to the Houston Rockets (if you're against James Dolan). It's not like he's the one that went back and restructured the Rockets' offer sheet (if you're against Jeremy Lin).
Melo just voiced his opinion on the matter, and then an anonymous source threw him under the bus.
Let's just move on and not worry how Anthony feels about his former point guard.
If anything, the small forward has much bigger things to worry about. You know, questions about actually winning basketball games.
It's his turn to feel the heat each time he makes a false step on the basketball court. That's where it should stop though—on the basketball court.
Can he win a championship at all?
More importantly, can he win a championship with Raymond Felton, Amar'e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler?
Can he even help the Knicks win more than a single playoff game?
Can he play defense at a high level for an extended period of time?
Is his contract too big and possibly prohibitive to the Knicks' success in the future?
These are the questions we should be asking about Melo. There are much more important things carrying a question mark than how he feels about a certain Harvard graduate.
