NBA Rumors: Carmelo Anthony says he has no relationship with Tom Thibodeau


The biggest NBA rumors at the moment seem to revolve around the idea of Carmelo Anthony leaving the New York Knicks for another team. Over the weekend that team was reported to be the Chicago Bulls, but after some time has passed, Anthony is finally addressing the rumor about the Bulls.

Anthony isn’t going in-depth about the rumors, which basically tells you all you need to know about how legitimate they are. He did bring up the type of relationship he has with Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau and revealed that it’s a nonexistent one.

Per the Chicago Sun-Times:

What was his relationship like with Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, then?

“I don’t have one with Thibs,” he said. “Nah, nah.”

He laughed quietly, like he was being goaded into saying something he didn’t want to say.

“That was a good one,” he said.

The fact of the matter is, Carmelo Anthony isn’t going to tip his hand as to what he plans on doing at the end of the season while it’s still January. It’s starting to sound like he’ll stay in New York, but all of the rumors involving the Knicks star needs to be taken with a grain of salt until at least April.
