Knicks Trade Carmelo Anthony To Thunder For Irregular Socks & An EBT Card

Carmelo Anthony is going to be running with Russell Westbrook. The New York Knicks have reportedly agreed to trade the star small forward to the Oklahoma City Thunder. 

To say that the trade seems one-sided, in favor of OKC, is an understatement.

According to ESPN, in exchange for Melo, the Knicks will receive Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a 2018 second round pick. Hoodie Melo had recently included OKC among the teams he’d be willing to accept a move to by waiving his no-trade clause.

Pray for Kristoff Porzingis, because he’s gotten no help and will be getting all the attention. McDermott has not lived up to his 1st round draft pick billing and Enes Kanter is a stiff of a big man (don’t be fooled). No shots.

Carmelo Anthony is now 32-years-old but seems to have plenty left in the tank. And on another note, Melo is raising money to aid Puerto Rico after the commonwealth was hit by a pair of hurricanes.

Salute to Melo, more of NYC will now realize the gem of a pro athlete they had repping the town.

Sen. John McCain Blasts Latest GOP Obamacare Repeal Bill

John McCain is slowly becoming a thorn in his party’s side, this after the Arizona senator spoke out against the GOP’s latest attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Using Twitter to voice his disdain, McCain may have upended the chances of the bill going forward.

NBC News reports:

Sen. John McCain announced on Friday that he’ll vote against the Graham-Cassidy Republican health care bill, putting the future of the legislation in peril.

McCain complained about the process, criticizing the lack of debate and committee time for legislation that would remake the country’s health care system.

“Committees of jurisdiction should mark up legislation with input from all committee members, and send their bill to the floor for debate and amendment,” McCain said in a statement.

“That is the only way we might achieve bipartisan consensus on lasting reform, without which a policy that affects one-fifth of our economy and every single American family will be subject to reversal with every change of administration and congressional majority.”

While McCain’s stance against the bill might gain him some sympathy points for supporters of the current healthcare law, he did state that standing against his longtime friend Sen. Lindsey Graham was a difficult decision to make. Graham tweeted in response that his connection with McCain remains intact as ever.
