Knicks’ season over, focus is on Anthony’s future
The Knicks never came close this season, going 37-45. Anthony said it was a ''failure'' and an ''embarrassment'' that he's unwilling to go through again, which could force him to look elsewhere since New York will have trouble changing its roster next season. ''I want to come back. I also want to win. Me wanting to be here, if we can put ourselves in position to at least compete at a high level over the course of whatever, five years, the contract would be, then I'm willing to stay here,'' Anthony said Thursday while wearing a red hat with the letters ''NY'' at the Knicks' training center. He met with Jackson, who took over as team president in March and has said he could envision Anthony as a central piece of the Knicks' future. Less clear is what he thinks about coach Mike Woodson, who received a strong endorsement from the Knicks' leading scorer. via Knicks' season over, focus is on Anthony's future | FOX Sports on MSN.Carmelo Anthony said he wants to stay in New York, and said he wants to win.
