It's been assumed Carmelo Anthony would start at power forward when the season tips off on October 19, but coach Billy Donovan confirmed the notion on Tuesday. The Knicks also chose to not bring back the-now Cleveland Cavaliers guard Rose for the next season.
Anthony is expected to be a key part of a revamped Thunder team who include reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Russell Westbrook as well as George. Obviously, with a lot of new changes, and I'm excited.
Porzingis said he gained about five pounds in the offseason in an attempt to get stronger. But if he doesn't, and both of his All-Star teammates refuse to step back, they're doomed to become another talented team that couldn't put it all together. He's a shoe-in for the Hall of Fame, and will easily go down as one of the best players to play the game. But, I digress. When discussing OKC, this argument makes no sense.
So much attention is paid to Enes Kanter's giant flaw - his defense. "So I have to be ready for that". The league would need to approve the deal before Anthony could be involved in any of the events. Anthony continued. "Come on, you know you belong". Late in overtime, Anthony took the ball to the same place on the court and drained a game-winning three, again with a hand in his face, to give the Knicks a one-point lead with eight seconds left on the clock. However in today's impulsive National Basketball Association, there really isn't much time or incentive for teams to develop non-superstar talent. That trend continued today at training camp.
Both players are likely to have bigger roles in NY than they would've had in Oklahoma City, and bring completely different skills to the table. "I think I've made that adjustment quickly".
The first battle between Oklahoma City and Golden State is going to be a fun one.
The Oklahoma City Thunder sent the two role players over in return for Anthony along with a 2018 second-round pick via the Chicago Bulls. It appears that will now be Porzingis, the 7-foot-3 forward from Latvia who will be entering his third season.
Steven Adams was in fine form at the Thunder media day.
Porzingis wouldn't address his decision to skip his exit meeting with Knicks management before leaving. "That's one thing I want to show".
"I'm only focused on the Warriors", he said.
