Carmelo Anthony Just Said This Delusional Remark About New York Knicks

The New York Knicks over the last three years have been underwhelming missing the playoffs in each campaign while winning fewer than 40 games. It was hoped that the addition of Phil Jackson could help turn the franchise around but it has yet to come to fruition. Along those same lines, Jackson recently stated in an interview with ESPN that Carmelo Anthony recently voiced much optimism about the direction of the franchise.

In our meeting at the end of the season, Carmelo said, ‘really (the Knicks’ situation is) not that bad. I think we have the best front line guys in the game, in the Eastern Conference, in Robin (Lopez), myself and Kristaps (Porzingis).’ And I have to agree with him. Yes, those are three real potent figures… So we have some positions to fill, but not a lot. Not that many.”

The Knicks did see some improvement this past year from the season prior by racking up 15 more wins but still finished outside of the playoff picture. Kristaps Porzingis was a pleasant surprise for New York that has given the organization much belief that he can develop into something special. However, Anthony has continued to deal with lingering issues his knees that have further affected his athleticism and effectiveness on the court.

New York will have another important offseason ahead of them that has begun with the addition of a new head coach in John Hornacek. The front office will also have over $20 million in salary cap space to add pieces in free agency. The Knicks may not be one of the worst teams in the league, but Anthony sounds like he’s trying to convince himself that his team is in a better position than they truly are.
