GREENBURGH, N.Y. –– With Wednesday evening’s Game 5 loss and first round playoff elimination still an open wound early Thursday afternoon, Carmelo Anthony addressed the media at the MSG Training Center after a difficult season and an even harder, more frustrating playoff series against the Miami Heat
A lot has been made about Anthony teaming with Amar’e Stoudemire and whether or not the two stars can co-exist.
After a lockout-shortened season complete with Linsanity, a coaching change, injuries, lineup shuffling and endless questions about Anthony’s ability to lead a team to the Promised Land, he finally sounded like he’d had enough on Thursday.
“I get tired of hearing that, man. I get tired of hearing about, ‘Can it work? Will it work?’” Anthony said. “We’re here to play basketball. When we win, it works. When we lose, it doesn’t work.”
