GREENBURGH, N.Y. — When his good friend LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers receive their NBA championship rings during a ceremony Tuesday night at Quicken Loans Arena, Carmelo Anthony knows what emotions will be running through his body.
“I mean, wishing that that was me,” Anthony said on the eve of the Knicks’ season opener. “I think all type of emotions kind of go through you when you seeing that, and especially on somebody else’s court. But we’ll get over that, I’ll get over that quick. Once it’s time to go, it’s time to go. You’re not really thinking about that.”
The Knicks haven’t won an NBA title since 1973. Anthony, 32, has never won one.
And as long as James resides in the Eastern Conference, Anthony’s path to an NBA title will likely go through the “Chosen One.”
