The one way the Knicks can get Kyrie Irving is by trading Carmelo Anthony. The problem is Anthony doesn’t want to go to Cleveland if Kyrie Irving isn’t there as well.
It has been reported mutliple times that the Knicks have reached out to the Cavaliers in hopes of trading Anthony to them for Irving. The issue, though, is that Anthony still wants to play for Houston according to ESPN’s Ian Begley.
Gilbert didn’t learn enough from three straight NBA Finals trips and a championship that bathed him, the city and the organization in glory. He was just another rich guy who was lucky to have a local hero fall into his lap — twice. He didn’t figure out that all he had to do to bask forever in this glow was to leave well enough alone, with the smart executive and the transformational player.
Now they all run the risk of capsizing. Griffin has gone overboard, days before the draft and weeks before free agency, heading into a pivotal offseason for a team fighting to keep pace with the Warriors team that just took their crown.
There’s a big problem with Barkley’s argument, though. He’s contradicting himself. Remember what Barkley had to say about Kevin Durant when he decided to sign with the Warriors?
Kevin is a terrific player, he’s a good kid. But just disappointed with the fact that he weakened another team and he’s gonna kind of gravy train on a terrific Warriors team, Barkley said last summer on ESPN’s Mike and Mike. Just disappointed from a competitive standpoint. Because just like it meant more to LeBron to win one in Cleveland, it would mean more to Kevin to win one in Oklahoma than it would be in Golden State.
Kevin Durant is trying to cheat his way into a championship.
