Despite promises from numerous players, Carmelo Anthony truly has made the Knicks relevant again. Do I see us as contenders? Not really. But I do see us as a perennial playoff team every year that he's here regardless of his supporting cast. I saw NYC under-appreciate Patrick Ewing when he was here, and while Carmelo Anthony isn't Patrick Ewing, I'm not about to under-appreciate his contributions to this team. He's contributed to more Knickerbocker success than any player in the last 13 years. Not to mention, he's done some phenomenal charity work both in NYC and abroad (something I don't take lightly). For that, I applaud that man.
