The New York Knicks are struggling, and it seems like they can’t quite figure out why. Knicks star Carmelo Anthony struggled to pinpoint the reason.
“I really don’t know what it is, why we can’t play well on our own home court,” Anthony said, via ESPN. “This should be the time where we gain some momentum, gain some confidence as a team playing here on our own home court, but that don’t seem like it’s the case right now.”
It has led to some frustration on Anthony’s part and apparently that has boiled over.
From the New York Post:
In the final minutes of another disastrous Knicks loss, a boisterous fan shouted at Carmelo Anthony “Nice defense, Melo.” According to an eyewitness, Anthony shot back “Go f— yourself,” drawing a reaction from other fans in the area.
“I’m dealing with it,’’ Anthony said after the game. “It’s not something I’ve dealt with before, and I’m going through this experience and I’m learning from it. As a team, we got to stick together and not let anything come between us.’’
Well, except maybe some trash-talking fans.
