Carmelo Anthony talks chips, steaks and divorce from Knicks

Carmelo Anthony talks chips, steaks and divorce from Knicks”

Carmelo Anthony spent six-and-a-half seasons with the New York Knicks, but he didn't feel wanted at the end of his tenure.

It worked out for Anthony who joined a Thunder organization that made the playoffs last season with reigning NBA MVP Russell Westbrook.

"He wanted me to play for OKC", Anthony said. I think we're going to see a sloppy game with plenty of turnovers from both sides, but it's hard to look past the Thunder to run away with this one at home, based on star power alone.

Anthony missed the playoffs in his last four seasons in NY after making the postseason during his first three campaigns. He was dismissed by the Knicks prior to Anthony's trade being completed, but Melo explained that Jackson's lack of professionalism played a large role in what went wrong.

The Anthony trade was the second big splash the Thunder this summer, after acquiring Paul George for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

Rather, he'll find a welcoming environment in Oklahoma City.

"They went from asking for peanuts to asking for steak", Anthony said.
"But however he feels, you have to get that from him", Hornacek said. Anthony's public back-and-forth with former Knicks president Phil Jackson became a distraction last season and into the offseason before Anthony chose to waive his no-trade clause to come to Oklahoma City in a trade that sent Enes Kanter and Doug McDermott to NY.

Jackson was sacked by the Knicks in late June, and Steve Mills, then an interim president, was close to making a trade with the Houston Rockets for Anthony in July.

"What we stressed to these guys is that we're going to continue to work every day, no matter what happens", Hornacek said. "So that's really the goal". There were things being said about me that I didn't know where they were coming from. I'm out here doing everything I can and I'm still getting stabbed in the back.

"This is an important game for me because it's an opportunity for me to kind of go out there and kind of close that chapter", he said. "I'm going to try to do my best".
