From a 12-70 season to almost having Carmelo Anthony in the bag. For weeks, I had been telling everyone "CARMELO TO THE NETS BABY." But all of a sudden things changed, the excitement turned into a deep sadness. All hope was lost the night that the Espn reported that Carmelo was traded to the Knicks. My facebook wall was being annihilated by some of my Knick Friends. I walked into school the next morning trying to talk about anything but basketball. But at 11am, someone finally brought up the Knicks and Carmelo. The conversation went on and on about how the Knicks will win a championchip with Chris Paul, Melo, and Amare next year. I didn't even bother to counter their overoptimistic beliefs. A few minutes later, I checked my netsdaily on my blackberry...NETS GET DERON WILLIAMS! ... I remember my mind going blank for a few minutes.. Thats how happy I was. I was jumping up for joy and I ran out of my class and into the hallways screaming NETS GOT DWILL BABY!!!!! The Vice Principal found my shortly and i got a two hour Saturday Detention. But it was all worth it..
Anyways.. How did you react? Who was the first person you told about the trade? Where were you? What were your feelings?
In D-Will, We Trust =)
