When is the last time there has been positive news coming out of Madison Square Garden?

Seriously, it's almost everyday now that something awful Knicks related comes out. First it was Phil Jackson calling out Melo publicly stating he doesn't think the Knicks could win with him, then it was the Knicks pissing off Kristaps Porzingis so much that he didn't attend his year end exit interview, and now this.
Obviously, personal life and on the court play should be kept separate, but this is New York and this will happen. Carmelo Anthony is a very public figure and has been at the forefront of almost all the Knicks transactions/rumors/problems etc since he got to New York.
Now, not all of it was his fault. Stuff happens with the front office, the product on the floor, coaching, etc. The one thing you could always say about Melo was that he handled everything professionally for the most part, especially this season where the President of Basketball Operations is old and senile and shouldn't hold a position of power, (seems to be a common theme in 2017,) and talks shit about his star player that HE TRADED FOR.
Well, I'll side step Phil Jackson for a bit to talk about this alleged rumor.
According to the New York Daily News, Melo has knocked up a "dancer" that worked at a gentleman's club in New York. I like to call a spade a spade and for that, I will refer to her as a stripper. Plain and simple.
But say it ain't so Melo! Melo and his wife, La La (preposterous name) have been rumored to have a rocky patch for some time, and now that this news has come out, it looks like that they are separating with no reconnection in sight.
I do feel bad for Melo. Has been shit on by the New York media for so long and now this. All I have to say is damn, a stripper, really Melo? I think my man took T-Pain's hit song from the early 2000s a little too literal here.
Everyone knows there is the saying "for every one drop dead gorgeous girl, there is a guy sick of her shit." Maybe Melo was sick of La La but....
All I'm saying is I would have stayed loyal.
Cue the music!
P.S. #StayMe7o and this tweet may have meant something....
