Carmelo Anthony canceled trip for 10th All-Star appearance, but he's enjoying it
Feb 20 2017
Anthony said: "It feels good to have guys who understand what you go through, who have been through what you're going through, people in the industry who know how it goes, to get to have that support and to have that respect".
"It was a downer", Anthony told reporters.
Carmelo Anthony expects to be wearing a Knicks uniform well past the February 23 trade deadline. The New York Knicks certainly would want more than role players if it will let go of the All-Star forward. The Knicks, whose organizational issues trickle down like the most corrosive acid rain, are in a perpetually troubling spot courtesy of a paranoid owner who has feuded with many beloved stars.
Yes, he will. Being in New Orleans did take him away from the islands, but also away from NY and the center of unwanted attention involving his future with the Knicks. Yet, we're all always talking about the Knicks. The Cavs on the other will send Kevin Love and DeAndre Liggins to the New York Knicks. I think about it. Think about it a lot.
The relationship with budding star Kristaps Porzingis has been an important factor in the Knicks future growth. This is precisely the problem: they are unwilling to do the things necessary of becoming a better on-court product with the pieces they acquire, and they routinely fail to recognize that until it's far too late.
Chris Paul, one of his longtime friends and a vacation pal along with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, and also the President of the NBA Players Association, noted of Jackson's prodding, "It's probably not beneficial to talk about your player in the newspapers". When the Knicks resume their regular season that same day, they play at Cleveland. I think about kind of what's best for me, what's best for the organization. Anthony held out hope that he would be selected as an Eastern Conference reserve, but that also didn't come to fruition.
