As the “Melo Drama” comes to an end with the Knicks landing Carmelo Anthony, we take a look at how it affected them…

By landing Anthony the Knicks instantly have the firepower in the front court to make them serious contenders in the Eastern Conference. Not only is that important for the current management (D’Antoni & Donnie Walsh) but it also will make a HUGE difference in terms of Madison Square Garden. Fans will pack the stands, paying top dollar for even the worst of tickets. The energy in the crowd will be electric and we may be experiencing the same type of excitement that hasn’t been there for Knicks games since Patrick Ewing wore #33.

For the Knicks:

Out: Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov, Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry

In: Carmelo Anthony,  Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter, Renaldo Balkman and Corey Brewer

This deal leaves the Knicks very top heavy but with a potential line-up consisting of 3 very strong veterans, a young/energetic Landry Fields and then an open space for someone to step up.

Knicks fans, what do you think???
