Syracuse Alum Carmelo Excited About Final Four; Knicks Eliminated From Playoffs On Same Day


What are the odds of this happening? Syracuse alum Carmelo Anthony celebrated their elite 8 comeback win over Virginia on Snapchat saying: “They don’t want us to win!’ he yelled, echoing his comments after Friday’s Sweet 16 win. “Cuse nation is in full effect!”

Just a few minutes later, the New York Knicks were officially eliminated from the playoffs as the Indiana Pacers defeated the Houston Rockets.


Melo led the Orangemen to their only national championship in his year on campus in 2003. He’s led the Knicks to absolutely nothing during his time there.
