Anthony says has proved Knicks loyalty

Anthony put his faith in himself and in the players on the court with him. Especially on the defensive end where the Knicks have been bad as a whole all season.

With each successive defeat, Carmelo Anthony's stay in NY becomes more contentious as his future with the Knicks is put into question. "I didn't think it would get to this point but as players if you can get that, you have a right to protect yourself and take care of yourself when it comes to that".

The proposed trade in the story - Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson, Jonas Jerebko and Boston's own 2018 first-round pick - does not make sense.

But now there are too many scars, too many losses.

First, Derrick Rose made a decision to literally skip a game and not tell anyone. Bad breaks happen to bad teams.

It seemed like just yesterday the Knicks were the surprise team in the east!

It's not Carmelo Anthony's fault that Phil Jackson signed a declining Joakim Noah to a $72 million contrac.

Anthony and Jackson have not had the best working relationship this season. He said Wednesday that his focus is on the team and winning basketball games, but Anthony also admitted that he's exhausted of dealing with all the off-court drama that he gets pulled into by other people, and answering questions for Jackson.

The nine-time All-Star, who has a no-trade clause, reiterated he plans to remain in NY. Anthony maintained, as he always has, that he does, and that he wants to win in NY. But who will they offer as trade pieces for Melo? "I hear it. I hear all the rhetoric that's going on out there, and I still come to work every day and play and bust my ass and try not to worry about it". This team still might earn a playoff spot if they magically turn things around, but anything past that is nothing but a pipe dream.

Carmelo Anthony says the New York Knicks is where he wants to be, despite doubts over his future. "I think people know that, people see that". His offensive talents still hold value, but his performance on the defensive end of the court has been bad this season and he's clearly past the prime of his career. In December, Anthony was annoyed after Jackson criticized him in an interview with CBS Sports Network for sometimes holding on to the ball too long.

Anthony also reiterated he doesn't want to pay attention to any trade rumors with his name attached: "I'm done asking why".

"No", Anthony said. "At this point I don't need to hear that". Additionally, the Clippers don't seem to have the interesting draft picks to make a trade with NY, for Anthony, feasible. In the scathing report, Rosen wrote that the Knicks and Anthony would be better off parting ways since the franchise intends to build around rising superstar Kristaps Porzingis. At 7'3 their is now cause for concern that injuries will plague KP throughout his career. However, Paul recently suffered an injury which will sideline him for six to eight weeks of action. That brings down his trade value to a level that wouldn't be catastrophic for the Clippers if they lost him. After the game, he is back there, the last player to leave the Garden nearly every night.
