Going into this year the Knicks completely remodeled their team. They tried to build a win now team, but unfortunately it hasn’t been that great. They are sitting at 17-20 and have a major problem to address. The problem other than defense, is their “star player” Carmelo Anthony. For years Melo has been looked as a pure scorer, who is somewhat efficient, and plays barley any defense. The problem is that this year is efficiency is at a career low, shooting only 42% from the field. You can describe Melo in two words, a ball hog. The Knicks are a talented offensive team, but its seems that whenever the ball finds its way to Melo, it is a shot. Moving forward the Knicks have to realize that Porzingis is their future, and that Melo should not be in that future picture. If the Knicks do trade him, it will give Porzingis more room to blossom into the star that we know he can become. They can also acquire some really nice talent, or a draft pick. Take the Celtics who have the Nets pick this year; they would love to have Melo, as maybe he can be the one player they are missing to compete against the Cavs in the playoffs. If you are a Knicks fan you just have to pray they take my advice, before Melo ruins the rest of this season, and before he hurts KP’s improvement.
