Carmelo Anthony backs wife’s talk of re-signing with Knicks
Carmelo Anthony didn’t come out and definitively say he will re-sign with the Knicks this offseason, but he did offer a glimpse into his thinking on Tuesday night.
While promoting her new book “Love Playbook,” Anthony’s wife, La La, said she “definitely thinks” Anthony will re-sign with the Knicks.
When asked about his wife’s statements following Tuesday’s 114-88 win over the Celtics, Anthony told Marc Berman of the New York Post, “That’s my wife. I support her. I don’t think she said anything wrong. It’s a good thing for her to say that.”
Anthony, who’ll turn 30 in May, has been on a scoring tear during the Knicks’ current three-game winning streak, averaging 40.3 points per game, including a Madison Square Garden-record 62 against the Bobcats on Friday.
Still, New York is a half-game behind Charlotte for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
