Carmelo Anthony turned down a deal with the Chicago Bulls and instead signed a five-year, $124 million contract with the New York Knicks. To some it proved that Anthony was totally out for the money even though he cited other reasons for returning to New York. Whether he is indeed solely out for money or not, he has made more in NBA salary than anyone else selected in the famed 2003 draft class and will have earned more than $257 million by the time his contract with the Knicks expires in 2019. Though he’s made more than anyone in that heralded draft class that includes LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, they have something he does not, championship rings. Despite that, Anthony feels like he’s a winner in his own right.
