Carmelo Anthony is halfway out the door and ready to move on from the Knicks. The only question left to answer is where will it be. A dark horse destination for Anthony appears to be the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to a report from Bill Simmons.
Now Simmons doesn’t normally throw things out, but there’s a reason for that. As good as he is at what he does, he isn’t a reporter. So things like this have to be taken with a grain of salt.
But clearly, there’s some source out there that has led Simmons to believe this. And if true, Anthony could make a great addition to a Thunder team in need of scoring and versatility on the wing.
If he decamps for L.A. or San Antonio in a year, that is proved to be B.S. I don’t think it was B.S. I don’t think things in Cleveland are so bad that he’s willing to say goodbye to northeast Ohio again. In a way, and perhaps even more so after the championship, basketball is James’ job. His work is much more important.
This is why I greet every new rumor with skepticism. Has James’ real mission changed? Until it has, or until we find out he was full of it, he’s not leaving.
