To be honest, I wasn’t 100-percent sure the Knicks would put this up:

Yessir, Carmelo Anthony is 33 years old. The greatest Knicks since Patrick Ewing is very much on the outs with the current regime, and this could be the last birthday he celebrates in the orange and blue.

It’s been a long, strange trip for number 7, punctuated with some highs (three consecutive playoff berths, the franchise’s only playoff series win in 17 years, the single-game MSG scoring record) and some lows (most of the last four seasons).

In fact, I’ll let former Knicks coach Chris Brickley sum up the Melo experience, as he so eloquently did on Instagram.

If this is to be goodbye, then let us remember the good times on Melo’s birthday. Here’s my personal favorite: Game 1, 2013 first round, against Boston.

That pass to Kenyon Martin to put the game away, to give the Knicks their first lead in a playoff series in basically forever, that was magical.

What about y’all? What are your favorite Melo moments? Feel free to share in the comments.
