Out of the Blue

The Carmelo Anthony situation has finally shaken out, as the Knicks picked up the superstar forward in a three-team deal that only cost them 80% of their starting lineup (it's no surprise that word is Isaiah Thomas has his fingerprints all over this deal). This should bring a lot of offense to the Garden, as Anthony will score a ton of points, as will whoever he's covering (though it's not like the team played a lot of defense before the trade). There's an old saying about sports trades that you have to give talent to get talent, and while I've always liked Chauncey Billups, losing Raymond Felton hurts, as he has been lights out this season (though it's hard to put a price tag on being able to get rid of the 400 lbs of uselessness that is Eddy Curry). The general consensus seems to be that this does not considerably change the Knicks' short-term prospects, but puts them in position to make a run at another free agent superstar like Chris Paul or Dwight Howard, though this will depend on the NBA's new collective bargaining agreement. We shall see.
