Carmelo Anthony out for Knicks-Cavaliers
Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James have been linked their entire NBA careers – as top picks in the 2003 NBA draft, star small forwards and friends.
But they’re splitting paths for tonight’s Knicks-Cavaliers game.
Melo is obviously the big loss, but New York will also miss Kyle O’Quinn, a solid backup.
The Knicks (14-15) are probably overmatched against the Cavaliers (18-7) either way. But with a high effort level, New York at least has a chance, even without its star.
