The Knicks look like they're headed nowhere fast next season. But could Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant end up on the team by this time next year?

It's a long shot. But on ESPN First Take this morning, Stephen A. Smith suggested that it could happen. According to him, Carmelo has already started trying to recruit KD to come to New York City next summer when he becomes a free agent—and KD is reportedly considering it. Stephen A. also said that there are some NBA insiders who believe that, if the Lakers decide to part ways with Kobe after his current contract is up next summer, Kobe would also consider coming to NYC, especially if KD does.

Don't get too excited, Knicks fans. There's no obviously no concrete evidence to prove that anything Stephen A. says here is true. But hey, it's fun to dream, right?
