It hit me last week when I heard Carmelo Anthony trade rumor number 4,932—the one that, if I remember correctly, had the Nuggets asking the Knicks for three starters, two draft picks, salary-cap relief, a pied-à-terre on Central Park West and half of Walt Frazier's wardrobe. I realized then that as career moves go, nothing beats contractual wrangling: You gain a higher profile with each round of speculation and, if you do it right, a pile of money even Blake Griffin can't jump over. So I want to follow the lead of Anthony, Albert Pujols, LeBron James et al. and make my future employment as newsworthy as my current performance. I have decided to become a free agent.
