The New York Knicks were stuck watching the Playoffs last season on TV like everyone else. And even though they more than likely won’t be competing for an NBA title next season, Carmelo Anthony says he’s confident they can at least qualify for the postseason. Per the NY Post:
“Yeah, I think so for sure. Absolutely,” an impressively slimmed-down Anthony said of the Knicks’ playoff chances before entering a Midtown gym for a late morning-to-early afternoon workout with a group of NBA players.
Anthony snuffed an attempt to establish any goals for the revamped Knicks, who will enter their first full season under team president Phil Jackson and new coach Derek Fisher. [...] “I can’t wait to get started,” said Anthony, who missed the playoffs for the first time in his career when the Knicks stumbled to a 37-45 record last season. “No goals. Not setting any goals, but I just can’t wait to get it back on.”
“I really don’t know how much I lost. I just know I trimmed down,” Anthony said, looking like a guy who hasn’t seen the bottom of a milkshake glass in two years. “I really didn’t do nothing special, just working hard, that’s it.”
