Amar'e recruits Tony Parker and Carmelo Anthony?

Posted on: July 4, 2010 1:06 am
 
The New York Daily News is reporting that Amar'e Stoudemire, outside of the production of the Broadway play he helped produce, said:

"I've talked to Carmelo Anthony that he needs to come out here," Stoudemire said. "I've talked to Tony Parker. Both guys are ready to join me if I decide to come here. So we will see if we can work it out."
KABOOM.

And so there's that. The number of questions this brings to mind is stunning:

  1. Is Amar'e going to get fined for tampering here?
  2. How will this affect Parker's relationship with the Spurs?
  3. How will this affect the Nuggets' attempts to extend Melo?
  4. Where did Amar'e get the idea to talk to those two about it?
  5. What's Amar'e thinking that he thinks talking about this is a good plan, true or not?
Let's go into La La Land for a second: Parker dribble penetrating from the perimeter, running the pick and roll with Amar'e Stoudemire's athleticism and Melo available for the pick and pop. Two man game with Amar'e and Melo. Running and gunning with those three, all under the age of 29

Ye Gods.

But in reality, if there's one thing we can take away from the Daily News article, it's that Amar'e is already mentally checked into the Knicks.  You don't start shopping for other partners already on rosters unless you're committed to the squad. It also means that the next 24 hours are going to be full of denials and speculation. The 2010 Free Agency Apocalypse: The self-propelling hype machine.

Melo would love to get out of Colorado. The only things there are skiing and disgruntled white kids looking to shoot their classmates.

Good luck Amar'e, good luck trying to get Melo to NYC. Not all players are that foolish. oh, maybe Melo is. Afterall, he did go to Syracuse. Ya, seriously, let's go to La La Land.
