New York Knicks trade sent center Robin Lopez and guards Jose Calderon and Jerian Grantto the Bulls in the deal. The Knicks received guards, Derrick Rose and Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round pick, and waived point guard Tony Wroten.
Derrick Rose improves the Knicks. Will Carmello get along as both like to dribble a lot and take the key shot? Rose does not have a 3 point shot and likes to slash and run. Mello is more of a half court player. The coach wants to run so if there is no easy quick shot maybe they go into the triangle for Mello. Mello did not like Jeremy Lin’s fast breaking the team.

Trivia: Where were tulips once used as a form of money? Is it Florida, Holland, Denmark or  Hawaii.  Answer next lines below. Pistol shrimp can make a noise loud enough to break glass.
Once upon a time in Holland, tulips were used as currency. During the 1620’s, tulips reached such a state of popularity in Holland that they actually created one of the world’s first economic bubbles. During what is known as the Dutch Golden Age, a single Viceroy tulip bulb had a value equivalent to $1,250 in current American dollars. According to the 1841 book Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds by British journalist Charles Mackay, a single tulip bulb was once given in exchange for 12 acres of land. “Tulip mania”, as it became known, didn’t last and at some point in the mid 1630’s, people questioned the value in paying a fortune for a flower that would inevitably die and subsequently, the market crashed.
