Carmelo Anthony says New York Knicks miss veteran players

The New York Knicks currently sit alone at the bottom of the Atlantic Division and somehow seem to get worse on a daily basis.

Now at a woeful 3-12 and riding an eight game losing streak, Carmelo Anthony suggested some of their struggles have come from a lack of veteran players:

Love this Carmelo: “I think now we do miss J-Kidd, Kurt and Rasheed.” Everybody can see this except. zfor the world’s biggest Eagles fan.

I’d be inclined to agree with Carmelo, if it wasn’t for the fact that the Knicks were littered with veteran talent like Melo himself, Tyson Chandler, Metta World Peace, Amar’e Stoudemire and Kenyon Martin. Granted, Chandler is injured and Stoudemire and Martin are shells of their former selves, but regardless it’s not like the Knicks have a roster full of 22-year-old kids like the Cleveland Cavaliers or Sacramento Kings.

The Knicks just aren’t playing good basketball right now, simply put. Hopefully things turn around in the near future before it’s too late.

They’ll have a chance to get back in the win column Sunday night against the New Orleans Pelicans.
