Carmelo Anthony Says Goodbye

There was always going to be a day that Carmelo Anthony left the shadow of MSG and the Empire state. Most fans thought that day would have come at the end of the contract he signed with the Knicks all those seasons ago. Carmelo loved New York and New York loved him. He was proud to be a Knick and never wanted to be anything else.
