People thought that New York will be carried by Melo and Amar'e but Chauncey Billups rose to the challenge of the Miami Heat in their Sunday mayhem showdown in South Florida. Billups, the clutch player that he is hoisted three crucial shots that broke the back of the Miami Heat. First, he attacked Mario Chalmers' defense in the 4th quarter and he shot two crucial two pointers in the latter part of the game. Then afterwards he shot a very long 3-pointer that gave New York a three point lead. LeBron attacked the basket, he was fouled and he was able to make his free throws. The lead was just one point. New York incurred a turn over in the last 15 seconds of the game. The Heat had a chance to win the game. They gave the ball to James but he was cleanly blocked by Amar'e Stoudemire. The Knicks won with the score of 91-86. Billups carried New York in this game. The Heat failed to execute in the dying seconds of this game.
Melo was so comfortable playing for New York. All I can say about Melo is that, you'll always go back to where you belong. Whether its about love or its about home. This is what happened to Carmelo Anthony. He was born and raised in New York. He learned to play and to love basketball the New York way. He spent some time in Denver but now, his Knickabacker dream has come true. He's now back to New York and he is now a Knick. Showin' some love to where he belong.
