Carmelo Anthony inspires us all

Carmelo Anthony, finger pressed firmly on the pulse of Knicks fans everywhere, has a real sense of the moment. After a devastating loss and another first round playoff exit, spirits seem pretty low - it’s the perfect time for a galvanizing leader to spring into action.

What does the fan base need most at a moment like this? Consolement? An avowal to redouble efforts and intensify focus? Both would ring hollow as cliches. The right move, as Melo showed, is to tweet a vaguely pretentious, ill fitting quote from Gangs of New York. Why inspire when you can bewilder?
