Rumors came out earlier this week that the New York Knicks have made significant progress in the Carmelo Anthony-Sweepstakes.   At first Carmelo tried to ignore the whole situation, but reports now say that Anthony was to be a Knick, and he is 100% sure.  Anthony has even reached out to Spike Lee, in hopes that Lee might persuade the Knicks to pull the trigger.  After LeBron, Bosh and Amare all switched teams, Carmelo Anthony has decided to leave the team who drafted him.  Yet another NBA superstar will leave his original team, and settle out east.
