The future of forward Carmelo Anthony is always the first thing that comes up when discussing the New York Knicks.
Obviously, the Knicks would like to re-sign Anthony, who is an elite offensive player and one of the game’s top scorers.
Anthony, however, doesn’t talk about free agency and although there is no way his impending opportunity to switch teams isnt on his mind all of the time, he legitimately seems more concerned with the poor performance of his team than anything else.
The Knicks were blown out by the Miami Heat 108-82 on national television Thursday night in one of the Knicks’ most embarrassing losses to date.
Anthony had 29 points and seven rebounds.
Afterwards, Knicks’ guard J.R. Smith gave a very telling statement about Anthony and his reactions to the Knicks’ 21-37 record.
“It’s pretty much numbing to him now the way things are going,” Smith told Marc Berman of the New York Post. “That’s not good for anybody.’’
Anthony is averaging 28.3 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.
