Typically wedding toasts include a funny story about the groom, some crude comment, some marriage advice or all of the above. Most times however, they don't include proclamations about new NBA superteams.
The NY Post's Marc Berman reports that at Carmelo Anthony's wedding this past weekend, Chris Paul grabbed the mic and started tossing around talk of a new Big 3, this one in the Big Apple.
Berman writes: "According to a person who spoke with wedding attendee Amar'e Stoudemire, Paul made the reference during a speech of a potential union of himself, Stoudemire and Anthony, saying, 'We'll form our own Big 3,' Paul allegedly said."
Of course "our own Big 3" refers to Paul, Anthony and newly signed Knickerbocker, Amare Stoudemire. And it goes without saying, some random wedding toast that may or may not have happened doesn't actually mean the Knicks can plan on their own Super Trio. But then again, who would've thought free agent summits and a supposed handshake deal in Beijing would give the Heat theirs?
A strange and unpredictable world, this NBA free agency is.
