NBA Kicks: Bulls Get Caught Between The Melo And New York City

I know it’s crazy — dah dun-dun — but it’s true.

Little did Christopher Cross know when he penned “Arthur’s Theme” that his iconic movie track would be  A.) iconic, and B.) referenced three decades later as a sneaker post riff on the Bulls succumbing to the first NYC-worthy Melo performance and Knicks fans joyously basking in the momentary feeling of top doggery that performance engendered. Chicago clawed back from 21 down in the first, New York clawed back from 10 down in the fourth, and then number 7 tied it up with a three to go OT where he hit another distance bomb FTGAW 100-99 with 8.2 left. But did Melo play up to the moment or up to his shoes? No standard issue white and blue Jordan M8‘s for this day, no sir. Melo chose suede-y blues for the Resurrection. Dust cleared, 43 points, 7 boards, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, 19,763 fans stepping on springs as they filtered into the late afternoon warmth victorious. Even Derrick Rose’s return after 12 games off to score 29 couldn’t sully this day. It was a reminder that Carmelo Anthony can still play like Carmelo Anthony and that he hadn’t fully embraced his inner Arthur Bach, an entitled, lazy, burnt toast of the town that had Knicks faithful concerned. Melo’s Easter moment kept playoff hopes breathing and narrowly averted the seemingly inevitable Scotch-fueled trips through Central Park in a chauffeured Rolls.
