Carmelo Anthony Psychology of Sports-Psych Tid Bits
Well the deed has been done and the dust has not fully settled. Rarely does a player as good as Carmello Anthony come on the market and when he does you have to get him. He is a genuine superstar or at least one of the top ten players on the league. I guess that makes him a superstar. He certainly will be in New York.
It was interesting that Anthony did not want to test the free agent waters, and that is his choice. He did not want to roll the dice regarding a new collective bargaining agreement or perhaps experience free agency. He took the safest way out–many people do. He got what he wanted and earned it under the system in which he works. They don’t like him in Denver someone has to be the villain. What can you do? Anthony will survive.
The team was near 500 without Anthony, that is a long way from contention. The Knicks have to compete with Miami and Boston and they need to be able to get past those teams to even think about going up against the Lakers or some other Western Conference power.
If you embraced that perspective–you can see why they needed to do something. There will be more changes that is obvious. Mr. Walsh did a great job.
The fan base has been further invigorated as they are discussing and dissecting the deal, that is what fans do. I have had more conversations about this trade than I care to report but thay have been fun. Do I miss Wilson Chandler? Do you?
—I forgot to add to yesterday’s list that sales of Anthony’s jersey will help the economy. Good thing.
—On another note, I like Geoffrey Rush and Christian Bale with a nod to the latter for best supporting actor. Then again I thought Jeremy Renner was outstanding as well. What can I say? Go with Bale.
–Hey I like sports and the Oscars are going Las Vegas style, you can now log on and play to see how you do during the show. I figure they must bet on this stuff?
