    The Webb Report: Knicks Talk!!

    Author Eric Webb

    It was a light week for the New York Knicks, in terms of their games played, but a heavy one in terms of the pressure the 70-year old organization received from the media and fans around New York.

    The Knicks only played three games this week instead of four and had three days until their next game, but the critics of the Knicks took no days off this week. The usual Knicks fans booed their team as they lost to the Pelicans at the Garden and to the Sixers in Philadelphia, but they also have been publicly criticizing Carmelo Anthony on multiple social media platforms begging the team to trade him. The week the plot thickened by Phil Jackson’s good friend, Charlie Rosen, jumping into the conversation suggesting that Melo would consider waiving his no-trade clause in his current 5-year $124 million contract, only if he was dealt to the Los Angeles Clippers or Cleveland Cavaliers.
