Welcome to New York, ‘Melo. One good thing about him coming to New York is the fact that fans will be able to get something to eat in the Garden again. Eddy Curry’s off to Minnesota. If Prince isn’t careful, he might find himself covered in BBQ sauce and sitting in Curry’s belly like Jonah. You hungry muthafucka!
Anthony may be the half-savior of New York but he should still be initiated and hazed like anyone else joining a new team. Chelsea makes all new players and staff sing in front of the team. Maybe he can perform Q-Tip’s Knicks anthem:
Nah that’s way too easy. If Anthony’s not going to reenact the “Stop Snitching” video, he should be forced to remake this with Keenan Cahill, Isiah Thomas and James Dolan:
Making Anthony front JD and the Straight Shot would be cruel and unusual punishment. I would have mentioned Spike Lee but I saw him on stage at the Prince show in December. No one needs to see him dance again.
Everyone knows mediocrity runs through the Knicks organization like the Germans through Belgium. Mike D’Antoni must be wishing he had the chance to make a “Decision” and get away from Jim Dolan. Too bad he didn’t realize that Curry is the basketball equivalent of Albert Haynesworth.
Curry was a no show for the Knicks summer league team and D’Antoni is already being pressured to answer questions about his status for the regular season.
Coach Mike D’Antoni put a positive spin on the Curry’s absence, but gave a very clear warning: He had better be ready in late September, or his time in Milan and Paris (where the Knicks will play preseason games at the start of October) will be as a tourist — not a basketball player.
“I’d be stupid if not being here would sway it,” D’Antoni told The Post. “But he’s got to be ready when training camp opens. He’s got to be ready.”
D’Antoni should know better than to bring Curry to Italy and France. Pasta and heavy cream will definitely get him in shape if slacking off this summer doesn’t do it.
