New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony calls Brooklyn Nets offseason 'special'

New York Knicks superstar forward Carmelo Anthony has had a pretty talkative weekend, first suggesting that it was his own personal decision not to undergo shoulder surgery (not the Knicks). After that, Melo hinted that his “window” was closing and the Daily News suggested that Melo intends to opt-out of his contract with the Knicks at season end. As if that wasn’t enough, now the former Orangeman is giving props to the rival Brooklyn Nets, stating that their offseason was ‘special’.

Per ESPN New York:

“It’s special what [Brooklyn] did,” Anthony told ESPN Insider’s Jeff Goodman. “[Jason Kidd] will have four or five future Hall of Famers. I played with him for a year and also with USA Basketball and I know his mentality. He knows the game. It won’t be hard for him to deal with those guys because he’ll put them in position and only have to tell them things one time.”

In fairness to Carmelo, what’s he supposed to say? That the Nets had a bad offseason? Seems like it was a bit of a trap question, which he tried to deflect to the best of his ability.
