Carmelo Anthony: ‘I Will Always Be Tied to New York’

by September 07, 2017

Carmelo Anthony, despite the apparent lack of progress in trade talks, sounds ready to leave New York behind.

Melo, however, says he’ll always have a connection to Gotham no matter how things end with the Knicks.

The franchise has made it abundantly clear that their future plans do not include the perennial NBA All-Star.

Per the NY Daily News (via SI):

“It don’t feel like 6-and-a-half years,” Anthony begins. “It’s a long time, it’s a long time.”


Near the end, however, Anthony hints that the most recent chapter of his NBA career is nearing its end.


“I’ll always be a part of this community, regardless of where I’m at,” he said. “I will always come back here, I will always have business here, I will always have family here.


“Those things will never change, so I will always be tied to New York.”
