I've said all along that I felt La La Vazquez was the driving force on her husband Carmelo Anthony basically insisting on being a New York Knick.
Carmelo would have probably rather been in New York than Denver anyway for many reasons(ex. he went to Syracuse; he's closer to his hometown of Baltimore; he could get more endorsement opportunities; he gets to play with another young star in Amar'e Stoudemire, he could get the chance to have a "big three" there in the future like the Heat do, etc.), but I really feel La La pushed Carmelo(and in doing so, the Denver Nuggets) to make it happen.
New York is La La's home, and she's also a camera and fame whore that wants to be in the spotlight. And there's not a better place to make that happen than NYC. Denver does not provide nearly as many off-the-court opportunities for money and fame as NYC does, for each La La and Carmelo.
So it comes as absolutely no shock to me that as I'm watching Carmelo's New York Knick introductory press conference, I also find out he and La La already have a reality show on the way for VH1 about their move to New York. Well, basically the show centers around La La:

VH1 announced Wednesday morning that Anthony and his wife, La La Vazquez, will appear in the reality series “La La’s Full Court Life” (a title that could change).
The series will begin in August, running for 10 episodes.
The 30-minute "docuseries," which began filming in January, will pick up where the couple’s wedding special, “La La’s Full Court Wedding,” left off.
It will follow Anthony and Vazquez as they prepare for their move to New York City following his trade to the Knicks on Monday.
“Viewers connect with La La because despite the fairy-tale wedding and NBA star husband, she is a real, down-to-earth, hardworking woman who stays true to herself,” said Jeff Olde, EVP, Original Programming and Production, VH1. “The best thing about the new series is that while pursuing and realizing her dreams, La La gets to take us back to her home in New York, where her story began.”
