Default Things can get interesting soon

Several NY papers are reporting that Chris Paul and Carmello Anthony both want to come and play for the Knicks.

A'Mare, CP3 and Mello would be an interesting matchup for the Miami trio.

I think the Knicks would have the advantage in that matchup

Wow that would be very intersting! Add a shooting guard to the mix and it could be a very interesting combo. To be honest, I wonder if Rip would be available (hate to see him go, but those are 2 very big bodies to throw some screens into)

Are those the same NY papers that were writing stories about LeBron coming to NY for the past couple of years?

Nobody ever said LeBron was coming here. The majority of the NY papers said he was not coming here.

The consensus in NY was Chicago or Cleveland

Paul during a toast at Melo's wedding this weekend

According to a person who spoke with wedding attendee Amar'e Stoudemire, Paul made the reference during a speech of a potential union of himself, Stoudemire and Anthony, saying, "We'll form our own Big 3," Paul allegedly said.

Maybe in the past week or so, but prior to that I don't remember that being the case. I seem to remember a whole bunch of LeBron to the Knicks stories.

they acted like he betrayed New york day day after signing

the signing of bosh wade and james is more proof that the nba's salary cap is a joke

I live here, work here that was not the case. NY wanted him here, it would have been the better for his total career. Very few people thought he would come here though. He would have been a billionaire if he came to NY.

Apparently the Nuggets owner was at the wedding as well and was for lack of a better word very annoyed

At least they claim to have a salary cap unlike MLB/The Yankees

Please. Go to the Knicks forums on any of the major basketball chat boards and people have been talking about Lebron going to the Knicks for years and many of the fans thought it would happen. Forget the numerous rumors by the various newspapers.

LeBron keeps singing the same tune

I don't see how you can say it would have been better for his career. His career isn't over with and you could only speculate. I think he made the best choice (I hate the Heat due to them beating my Mavs) so I'm not a Heat fan...just saying I think Lebron is the only one who knows what's best for his career.

I think if Mello and Paul went to the Knicks it would be great. Paul is Drowning in NO with the Hornets not Putting much help out there with him. Plus I've lost alot of respect for LeBron and the way he handled things. If this would happen, between the Knicks and Celtics I think the Heat would be just another above average team.
