Surprising Knicks player emerges as leader after Carmelo Anthony trade

Surprising Knicks player emerges as leader after Carmelo Anthony trade

The Knicks acquired Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a 2018 second-rounder via the Chicago Bulls for Anthony, almost three months to the day when Anthony and the Knicks first agreed that a trade was in the best interests of both parties.

George spoke with Sam Amick of USA Today on media day and opened up about how he ended up in OKC and what exactly his frustrations with in were. I can stay in the gym all day if I want.

"Adding PG was just another reason why I wanted to come here", Anthony continued.

The Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday reportedly completed a deal to land Carmelo Anthony from the New York Knicks.

The native of Turkey joked that his former teammates told him to be careful in NY, and to watch out for the media.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have pulled off more trades than any National Basketball Association team over the past 16 months.

It has always been the desire of many NY fans that Anthony play outside of his preferred small forward spot, but he largely refused to do so. However, new General Manager Scott Perry reiterated that the Knicks would still attempt to unload Anthony to another team. I think the exposure and the cross pollination for Australian fans is incredible.

Falcons survive scare from Lions 30-26
The NFC North-leading Lions (2-0) host the Atlanta Falcons (2-0) on Sunday in a matchup of two of the NFC's four undefeated teams. So with that in mind, it's clear that Detroit needs as many early-season wins in order to keep this from happening once more.

Justin Thomas claims 2017 FedEx Cup
Simpson and Casey each shot three-under 67 on Friday after starting their rounds tied for second place. However with the depth in the field and tight competition, we could see the trophies split.

"Anytime there's an opportunity to make the team better since 2008. we've tried to put ourselves in position to capitalize, at least know what's going on", Presti said. "I don't know the answer to that question".

Meanwhile, BleacherReport said the Anthony deal worked favorably for OKC.

Aside from Westbrook's big money deal, Oklahoma City would see big increases to the contracts of Victor Oladipo (four-years, $84 million) and Steven Adams (four-years, $100 million) and were still on the hook for another $35 million-plus to Enes Kanter who they matched a max offer sheet for in 2015. The Golden State Warriors have shown that in a line-up with multiple stars, two players can thrive with high usage as Steph Curry and Kevin Durant both ranked in the top 25 last season.

"I love being here, I am excited about the season", Westbrook said. "One for him, and one for his teammate".

"This feels like a championship team", George said. Westbrook became the first player to average a triple-double in a season since Oscar Robertson did it in the 1961-62 season. Well I say false.

"It's been a long, long summer", Westbrook said. And if it works out, it'll be a fire, pissed-off fire, and ice thing with George and Russ screaming around the court and Melo calmly draining fifteen-footers from the elbow. This is not me just being a insane fan either.

It's going to take some time for the Thunder to mesh on the court, particularly with Westbrook and Patterson yet to join the action, but the team appears to be in a good place from chemistry perspective. I love the people here. I believe Anthony gets a bad rap for being selfish. "I like where our team is".
