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?
