Pity the Milwaukee Bucks. They get to come into Madison Square Garden on the night Carmelo Anthony first puts on a Knicks jersey and wants to impress his new hometown fans.

The trade has become official, ‘Melo in in New York and is expected to play, according to a tweet from Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.

Everyone involved with the 12-player trade has to pass a physical or have it waived for anyone involved to play. The Knicks may be confident that will happen but one should take that with a grain of salt. There are a lot of moving parts here.

If he does play, look for Anthony to start at the small forward spot.

The Knicks get pretty much the perfect game to start the new era — they catch a struggling Bucks team on the second night of a back-to-back, and the Bucks anemic offense is the one thing that could make the Knicks look like they are playing defense.

    My guess is that it’ll be more like New York’s defense will cure Milwaukee’s offensive woes. Look for the Bucks to have their highest scoring output of the season… pretty much like every other team does that faces the NY Bricks.
