The Knicks were said to still be the chief contenders for Anthony, and with Phil Jackson now calling the shots, they are a far more appealing option than the Knicks were this past season. Anthony would prefer to stay in New York and get a max deal, but that hasn't stopped Chicago from going all in.
We'll see if Anthony is susceptible to such epic flattery.
