Melo To The Knicks

This really has nothing to do with Wisconsin sports, but I needed to chime in on the fact that Melo is headed East to play with the Knicks. The funniest thing of the whole trade, which many people will not think about is the Milwaukee Bucks role in this Carmelo saga. Anthony's last game with the Denver Nuggets and subsequent first game with the Knicks will both be played against the Bucks. It seems like a long time ago being last Wednesday, but that's when Melo put up 38 points in his last game as a Nugget. How many will he scored in his first game as a Knick, at home, in the Garden, and against the Bucks? I would have to say the over under is 50 points.

Back in December 2006 Carmelo got into a fight with Nate Robinson, who at the time was a member of the New York Knicks. I know that was quite a while ago, but I still find it a little funny the team that hated him for a cheap shot will now love him. I guess no one cares if you give your team a chance to win a title. Which to relate it back to Wisconsin sports, having the chance to win a title is something the Bucks will not be doing for many years.

I can't say I have ever been so pumped for a Bucks game. The Garden will be rocking as they introduce Carmelo Anthony to his new crowd. I guess being a Bucks fan I can't do anything, but hope we shut Melo down. The big problem I see with the new look Knicks team is that they have no defense. I see the Knicks scoring a lot of points, but they will give up a lot too. How awesome would it be to shut Melo down, win the game, and have everyone start talking about how Melo isn't the answer to the Knicks title run. I know this dream is a little out there, but I just want one good thing to come from this season for the Bucks.

Before that though, make sure you check out two of the worst teams in the league square off as the Bucks take on the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight at 7pm.
