Could Carmelo Anthony Be The Piece The Celtics Need To Be A Contender?

Carmelo Anthony could be a Knick all season, but he also could get traded to a number of teams. An interesting thought is Melo going to the Boston Celtics. Now the Celtics in recent years has been a team that has made some crazy moves in the past. When they brought in Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen we all know how well that went. Could Carmelo give the Celtics what they need to compete with other teams in the East? Let's take a closer look at this idea and why it could become a reality.

Phil Jackson and The New York Knicks have been trying to move Melo for awhile now and without much success. They thought Cleveland would take him, but with Love going down that is very unlikely now. The Knicks now must look elsewhere and a interesting landing place could be the Boston Celtics.  Boston needs a player to help compete against the Cavaliers in the East and Melo could be that guy. He will give u 20 points a night which can be huge when playoff time comes.

The Celtics sit only 3 games behind the Cavaliers for best in the East. Isaiah Thomas has been carrying the Celtics, but I'm sure he would love some help against the Cavaliers in the playoffs. Like him or hate him Melo is an option that I'm sure Danny Ainge and the Celtics are looking real close at right now. With Brad Stevens as coach I'm sure he could get Melo to fit right in with the Celtics.

Does Lebron James Really Need That Much Rest?

The million dollar question in Cleveland, Ohio is how much rest does Lebron James really need. We have made it through half of the season and James is leading everyone in minutes played. For Cavalier fans they have taken notice and are starting to worry about the long term effect this could happen on James.

I have played sports all my life and I can tell you yes and no it can have an effect on you. During the season playing all the minutes can drag you down, but James is in great shape. The one thing the Cavaliers have going for them is they should have an easy time in the East when playoff time comes. This means you will want to get Lebron as many minutes off as possible. Saving his legs for the Championship is crucial if the Cavaliers want to win it all again.

If I was the Cleveland Cavaliers I would not worry if they are a one or two seed. With Lebron James they always have a chance. Getting him some rest during the second half of the season is something they probably should work on if at all possible. When playoff time gets here all players are tired, but winning an NBA Championship again will kill any fatigue a player might be experiencing.

Carmelo Anthony Getting A Raw Deal From The Knicks

Carmelo Anthony is a player that many people have various opinions on and how he hurts and helps a basketball team. Right now he plays for the New York Knicks, but they want to move him, but as of right now he still is a Knick. In my opinion Carmelo Anthony is getting a raw deal from the Knicks management including Phil Jackson. Let's look at why this could backfire in the Knicks face if they continue to go down this path.

The one thing the Knicks do not realize is Anthony wants to stay in New York and help turn the franchise around. There are not alot of players who want to do that in this city. The Knicks have struggled recently and they feel moving Anthony will make rebuilding alot eaiser, but the opposite will happen. One of the main reasons I say that is because players see how they are treating Melo. This means trying to lure free agents to the city will be much tougher.

Is Carmelo Anthony the best player around? No, but he is not a bad player and a good piece to build around. You get leaderships and a guy who will give you 20 ppg on average. He has not been injured very often and he wants to win. Why would you want to trade a player like that away. I guess he has rubbed some people in the Knicks organization the wrong way. Losing Melo will hurt the Knicks more then they think. Hopefully, the New York Knicks will rethink how they are handling this and change there attitude towards him before its too late.
