Is Carmelo Anthony‘s tenure in New York over? Knicks GM Phil Jackson is doing his best to smear the All-Star forward at any chance he gets while trying to prop up the remnants of the triangle offense, but due to Melo’s no trade clause, Phil and James Dolan are going to have a tough situation on their hands. We still expect this Jordan Melo M13 Knicks to be the last pair to ever feature a Knickerbockers theme as Carmelo is likely to move on to greener pastures elsewhere in search of his first championship and his first playoff appearance in over half a decade. There will be plenty of championship contenders willing to make it work, but that superstar-esque contract still stands in the way of Melo joining the likes of the Cavs, Clippers, and any other pre-approved destination where he could team up with his superfriends.
The Jordan Melo M13, meanwhile, is one of the best Melo signatures we’ve seen in quite some time. The unique Flight Web system reminds us of the wardrobe from Michael Keaton’s Birdman with an aggressive cage made up of a feather-like overlay system. That diamond texture extends to the responsive Flight Speed midsole complete with Zoom Air on the ball of your foot. As Melo’s time as a superstar carrying a team is probably over, do you see his signature line continuing next season? Or do you think a veteran Carmelo used strictly as an offensive weapon in a role position would fair better rocking the latest signature Jordan and breaking out some retro PEs? Only time will tell. You don’t have to wait to grab the Jordan Melo M13 though, as pairs are on clearance right now at Nike.com.
