Mike Woodson & Melo Don’t Think He’s Getting “Superstar” Calls

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at New York Knicks

There is an easy joke here, but I am not going to go there, I am just going to let you read the quotes from Woodson and Melo.

Carmelo Anthony isn’t getting the “superstar” calls from referees, New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson says.

In an interview Thursday on ESPN New York 98.7 FM’s “The Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco Show,” Woodson said that other big-name players receive better treatment from officials than Anthony.

“Absolutely. And I’m not going to shy away from that, either. I think Melo gets hit more than ever,” Woodson said in his weekly radio spot.

The offense normally has the advantage when you’re making plays at the rim,” Woodson said. ” … Melo draws a lot of contact but he comes up empty a lot of times as well.”

“You look at that and you see the way that some guys get their calls; me, I got to get cut, you’ve got to see blood for me to get a call down there,” Anthony said on Nov. 14.

“That’s where the frustration comes in,” Anthony said then.

Maybe the complaining will get Melo a few more calls, but it will take more than the refs to help the Knicks out of this funk.
