There’s been much ado about Carmelo Anthony’s role now that the New York Knicks, under new head coach Derek Fisher and team president Phil Jackson, will be running the Triangle Offense.

A fired-up Anthony worked harder than ever this offseason after missing the Playoffs for the first time in his 11-year NBA career, and Melo (despite the tamped down expectations) says he can hardly wait to get going in the new setup. Per the NY Post:

“I was angry,” Anthony said (about only taking a week or two off this summer.) “I was angry.”

 

“Every year is different,” he said. “Last year I don’t think nobody thought Toronto would do what they were going to do last year. I don’t think nobody thought the Wizards were going to do what they did last year. So every year is always different. […] This year, with Paul George going down, Chicago will always be there. But as far as basketball goes, I’m excited to get back and play on the court because I know what we have with the New York Knicks, and we’re only going to get better, so I’m excited about that.”

 

“Without a doubt, without a doubt,” he said about being able to produce in the new offense. “When people say spots, I’m going to be all over the floor. In the triangle, you’re all over the floor … it makes it hard to guard, it keeps all eyes off of you. […] I’m looking forward to it, I’ve been saying it all summer. I can’t wait.”
