Handing out these type of dollars to a mostly unproven point guard with a shaky jumper and propensity to turn the ball over not only represents a huge risk, but also drastically handicaps New York financially for the next three seasons.
In nine career postseasons, Anthony is 17-37, which is the worst record of any active player with at least 50 playoff games. Even with Sunday's 89-87 win over the Heat, he has still lost 11 of 14 playoff games.
Given the Knicks 7-13 record, James Dolan and company are actually doing me a favor. I didn't have to watch the one point Melo game or the dismal shooting performances of Iman Shumpert or Toney Douglas.
