Remember when the Knicks used to have Carmelo Anthony and win basketball games? Those heady days of early January might be coming back, as Melo will be in the starting lineup for the traditional MLK Day matinee against the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Knicks could use Melo, as the Sixers have been playing some decent ball ever since reacquiring Ish Smith. Jahlil Okafor in particular is coming on:
The #sixers have a 102.2 offensive rating with Jahlil Okafor on the court since Christmas. That would rank 14th in the NBA over full season.— Derek Bodner (@DerekBodnerNBA) January 17, 2016
Yikes. Please don't underestimate this team, Knicks.
