Carmelo Anthony Expects to Only Play Small Forward This Year

by October 05, 2014

After a couple of years of occasionally sliding into the power forward position for the New York Knicks, Carmelo Anthony told the media he expects to exclusively play the 3 this season. Per ESPN New York:

Anthony does think the Knicks’ current roster has enough power forwards and that he will play small forward this season in the triangle after playing a lot at the 4 in the last two seasons.


“We got too many,” he said of the power forwards on the Knicks roster. “I don’t need to go down there and battle. For what?


“If it comes down to it, I’ll go back there, but I doubt it. They’re going to move me down there. … I think in this system more than anything playing on the wing is where I like to be — playing in the post is where I like to be — and the way we play we’re all over the court, so you never know where you’re going to get the ball.”
