Report: Carmelo Anthony Wants to Be Traded From Knicks
It was all good just a LIN ago.
Has Melo even been with the Knicks for a full year? This was his decision. He forced the trade to the Knicks, he wanted to play under the big lights and Spike Lee bad outfits. Because of him the Knicks traded away their core players. They weren’t a bad team before Melo showed up, but they are an under .500 team since LaLa and Ciara started coming to games.
If he can’t handle some adversity in New York, what makes any team think he is going to do better anywhere else?
Carmelo Anthony’s discontent with the Knicks organization became so severe after Monday night’s loss to the Bulls, he told a confidant he preferred to be traded before Thursday’s trade deadline, The Post has learned.
According to a person familiar with his thinking, Anthony’s disillusionment stems most from a belief coach Mike D’Antoni and interim GM Glen Grunwald do not trust him. He is surprised that after all the Knicks gave up to trade for him, he has not been asked for more input on personnel decisions, as Deron Williams has with the Nets.
“The organization makes believe his opinions don’t matter,’’ the source said.
His opinions don’t matter, because he isn’t a Superstar, he is just a star. He also appears to be a star who is difficult to coach and more concerned about himself than doing what is best for the team if you believe the article by ESPN’s Chris Broussard.
New York, New York big city of dreams.
Unfortunately, Melo hasn’t been the same since Lin came through and crushed the buildings.
