Knicks' Carmelo Anthony Addresses Clippers Rumors

New York Knicks Jeff Hornacek's Complaints About the Offense Are Precise Knicks Melo-1-560x316

With the Knicks set to miss the playoffs for a fourth consecutive season, Anthony is admittedly concerned about his future in the Big Apple.

"It makes you want to think about what's next or what could be next, just thinking about those situations", said Anthony, recalling the times that he was a part of the postseason, making it his first 10 years in the National Basketball Association before the Knicks stumbled into oblivion.

"We still got a ways to go", said Clippers point guard Chris Paul, who had 13 points and 13 assists. When asked if he thinks that he would be successful in LA, Anthony says that he thinks about it a lot and tries to put everything in perspective.

"Honestly, I think about it a lot", Anthony said. I think about it. "I would love it". I think postseason. I think about my teammates. He thinks about it a lot and tries to put it in perspective and hear other people's opinion on the matter. "At the end of the day, it's on me".

Anthony didn't play in the fourth quarter after the Knicks (27-43) fell behind by 25 in the third.

ABOUT THE KNICKS (27-42): NY coach Jeff Hornacek insists that he is still trying to win games, and All-Star Carmelo Anthony is still logging heavy minutes, but the losses keep piling up.

Kristaps Porzingis and Derrick Rose each scored 18 to lead the Knicks.

Griffin had 30 points in three quarters, and watched the Clippers reserves preserve their second straight win to improve to 42-29. As the Knicks struggles have mounted, Jackson has poked and prodded at Anthony, moves that the Knicks' star believes are created to try to get him to waive the clause.

The director general of the capital's Al-Mujtahed hospital told AFP earlier there were at least 28 people dead and 45 wounded. The attackers used improvised explosive devices, Iraqi Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Jamal said in a statement .

His closest friends in the National Basketball Association are Paul, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

Resting continues to be a hot topic around the league, after Cleveland sat all of its All-Stars Saturday, leading to an emphatic win by the Clippers over the defending champions.

Carmelo Anthony, 32, is already past his prime, but could prove to be a potent threat for a playoff-bound team. "I always think about the times that I've had in the postseason, the games and experiences that I've had with teams, players". "I haven't thought about it".

"The competitor that I am, the person that I am - I want to be there. But I'm not going to focus on it", Clippers coach Doc Rivers said about the situation. "I pride myself on that". They are expected to try again this offseason.

Despite the narrative surrounding the Clippers' success while Blake Griffin has been injured in the past, this season he is continuing to show that, at full flight, he makes the Clippers almost unplayable.

Carmelo Anthony said he's loved living in Los Angeles across the years and dropped enough hints his time may be done as a Knick. Paul is there, too. "I've come to grips with that".

"Even when back in Denver, yeah, I'm never leaving here, " Anthony said. However, it looks like the San Antonio Spurs could be the team that finally takes Carmelo Anthony out of the New York Knicks. But the way that the game is, the way that the business is, I think it's highly impossible to accomplish that and the guys that do accomplish that, you know, you've got to take your hat off to them.
