Carmelo Anthony decided to "take the money" in New York rather than go with the supposed "better" situation with the Bulls in Chicago. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:
There are those that will mock this decision, purely based on the cap situation that the Knicks have next season. However, let me ask you ... would YOU turn down an extra 30 million bucks? If the answer is yes, prepare yourself while I warm up my voice to shout loudly to you in public about being a less-than-honest individual. Let me tell you, it would be hard to pass up that kind of money. Yes Melo's situation for next season isn't ideal but ... dunno that's alot of C.R.E.A.M (cash rules everything around me).
Anyway. Not much Nuggets new so ... there you go. Good for Melo
