Chandler didn’t single out Anthony when he said, ‘you want to take over the game or you want to make a big shot where you (should) stick to the game plan,’ but he certainly seemed to be referring to the All-Star in his remarks.
If you [Carmelo Anthony] want to be considered a superstar and you asked for the situation, have your best game of the season tomorrow. … Be great tomorrow. It’s not that much to ask from a player capable of greatness.
But the unnecessarily arduous Celtics series and Sunday’s flatline in front of their fans shows that the Knicks will lose eventually. And that’s because they are led by a loser.
It takes big balls to do that, especially [in] the society that we live in, knowing that everybody gonna have something to say. … So for him to step up to the plate and do that, I’m pretty sure that that opened the floodgates for a lot of other people.”
“I’m just glad he came out,” Anthony said. “A secret like that can eat you alive. It sounds like from what I’m hearing in the interviews that he’s a free man now, he can sleep at night. He don’t have to worry about anything. I hope he just focuses on continuing to play basketball and just living life freely.
I feel good as of right now, so I’ll be ready to play tonight.
Loud boos for Carmelo [in Denver] but nothing like LeBron hears at MSG and nothing close to what Pat Riley heard first time he came back to MSG in 1995.
I don’t think I’ll ever be 100 percent.
