Anthony and Paul Join Forces To Give Back In Brooklyn, but Trade Talk Threatens Hope Of Union In Manhattan

Yesterday, Carmelo Anthony, joined by Chris Paul, Lebron James and Dwayne Wade, visited Brooklyn to donate food to those less fortunate (aka the 99%).  The philanthropic gathering of four of the NBA’s best players fueled rumors and hopes that a union of Paul and Anthony would be the championship-seeking counterweight to the partnership of Lebron and Wade.  Unfortunately, those hopes are being dampened with rumors that Danny Ainge is trying to convince the NBA-owned Hornets to part with Paul in a deal involving the Celtics’ Rajon Rondo and perhaps a third team that will give the Hornets some good young players in return.   If true and if Paul can be convinced that he has a better chance fo being a winner with the Celtics three stars (Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce) who average 35 years of age, then the Knicks dreams of a big three will take a major drudging with manure and league-owned sludge.  

What do you think are the chances that Paul is seduced by Danny Ainge, Doc Rivers and the ghost of Red Auerbach?
