Carmelo Anthony is basically the only star on the NY Knicks as Phil Jackson cleared roster as we are assuming to clear cap space to make a dynamic team as he has done with Lakers and Bulls in the past.
All of the former Knicks, like Tyson Chandler, Amar’e Stoudemire, JR Smith and Iman Shumpert are all in the 2015 NBA playoffs while Anthony is at home with a very nice contract. Anthony told Ny Times though he was confused and surprised when Smith and Shumpert were traded.
The moves that he made, once he started explaining to me behind closed doors about what was going on, his thought process behind everything, it started to make sense.
So I don’t second-guess it
