And it most certainly is that. Really, though, retaining Anthony was merely the first step in what president Phil Jackson sees as a multi-year process intended to do what no Knicks team has done in more than 40 years: bring a championship banner to Madison Square Garden (from ESPN New York's Ian Begley).
