Syracuse Orange: Carmelo Anthony creates new big 3 in OKC

"Come on, D", Anthony said after learning the news. One day later, the Knicks agreed to terms with OKC, obtaining Kanter, sharpshooter Doug McDermott and the Bulls' second-round pick that could be in the low 30s after Dwyane Wade's buyout in Chicago. Wojnarowski also tweeted Oklahoma City could become a factor in landing Wade, but Cleveland, San Antonio and Miami are the front-runners. We thought the former Syracuse Orange star would be heading to Houston, like everyone else, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

Anthony said Monday a desire to play alongside Westbrook was behind his move.

Kanter was holding a basketball camp for children, live streaming the ongoing shenanigans to viewers on his Periscope, a live streaming platform, when news broke about the blockbuster trade. While I understand that both players are low-value trade targets due to only having one year remaining on their contracts.

"I love being here, I am excited about the season", Westbrook said. "He'll go through the process, and we'll be in touch with those people just like the rest of the league".

The wise thing for teams to do is to wait out this dynasty, wait for either contract disputes or locker room drama to break them up.

Rohan Nadkarni of Sports Illustrated gave the Thunder an A grade for the offseason trades. All he would offer is making the playoffs (shooting kind of low there Paul) and to be a top defensive team. Gores also says he will support the Pistons players and their right to thoughtfully raise awareness to various causes.

"Anthony has never played with two players as polished offensively and firmly set in their primes as George and Westbrook". Guards and wings are setting more ball screens than ever, and George creates mismatches with his size and athleticism. He anticipates Westbrook and he will make the game far easier for Anthony.

Anthony led the NBA in scoring during the 2012-13 season (28.7 points per game) and during the 2009-10 season, he became the third youngest player in NBA history to reach the 12,000-point plateau (behind James and Bryant). You put us three together, who all have something to prove still, [and] we're going to be a special team.

George is a more natural two-way small forward than Melo, and Oklahoma City didn't have an ideal option at power forward prior to Anthony's arrival. To make all three superstars, happy OKC will have to play faster and to increase the number of attacks per 48 minutes. Is Russell Westbrook going to remain the sole leader of the Thunders? "That remains to be seen", General Manager Sam Presti said. "I don't know the answer to that question".

With all the recent problems involving sports topics in America and the clash of different opinions regarding President Donald Trump and other major athletes, actual sports news were a bit out of focus in the recent days.
