Currently, one of the leading NBA trade rumors 2017 is that Carmelo Anthony could end up with some other team like the Boston Celtics or the Los Angeles Clippers. Phil Jackson, the president of the New York Knicks, recently announced that the team is considering trading Carmelo Anthony this summer. However, it may not be as easy for the Knicks to trade Carmelo as it may seem. No doubt, Carmelo was a very dynamic athlete in his prime, but recent statistics suggest that this may no longer be the case. Perhaps the Jordan Melo M13 colorway featured is Jordan Brand’s way of bidding Carmelo Anthony farewell from the Knicks.
Carmelo Anthony may no longer be in his prime, but he still has the potential of being a fruitful scoring option. Perhaps the Knicks have lost their faith in the multiple-time All-Star, but Carmelo will likely be driven to prove them wrong and whichever team acquires him could end up gaining an impactful athlete. Carmelo Anthony’s current situation has apparently got executives throughout the league talking. Some of them have even speculated that it would be most logical for Carmelo to end up as a new member of the Los Angeles Clippers. Whatever the case, the Knicks have somewhat made up their mind about trading Carmelo.
Whether he gets traded or not, it will definitely not change Carmelo Anthony’s relation with Jordan Brand. This should be obvious from the fact that Jordan Brand has every intention of continuing the Melo line. However, considering all these trade rumors surrounding Carmelo, it is not out of the blue that Jordan Brand has whipped up a Melo M13 colorway dressed up in the colors of the Knicks. This M13 iteration features a distinct Flight Web system with a feather-like overlay and responsive Flight Speed midsoles that include Zoom Air. Overall, this sneaker sports a Blue and Orange color scheme.
While there is still time until Carmelo Anthony’s fate becomes certain, sneakerheads will not have to wait to get their hands on this New York Knicks-inspired colorway of the Melo M13. This Jordan Melo M13 is has already joined the recent Jordan releases 2017 and currently on clearance at Nike.com.
