The Knicks lost again last night, with a starting five of Jose Calderon, Langston Galloway, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Smith, and Lou Amundson. Removing Anthony would be like putting a bolt through a broken-down horse's brain. But that's a pretty accurate simile, come to think of it, and it's no less than the Knicks need or deserve.
Anthony's been playing on a sore knee all year, and really, what's the point? The Knicks are 10-42, and there's no sense in wasting the 30-year-old's remaining miles on a lost season.
Burn it all down. Sit Melo, buy out Amar'e, hand the team over to Andrea Bargnani, finish with the NBA's worst record, finish eighth in the draft lottery anyway.
