With Carmelo Anthony committing to the New York Knicks for the next couple of season, it safe to say that he will be with the team for the long haul.
Recently, Anthony did an interview with Raul Alzaga of the Puerto-Rican newspaper “Primera Hora” and was asked about his championship expectations for the Knicks in the upcoming year.
In terms of what Melo said, he seems pretty grounded in his believe that New York won’t win it all next season:
“I do not expect to win a championship this year. That’s something that takes time and everything has to be in sync, from management to players. We have much work to do, but something that drives me. I know we can start creating the foundation of what we do. It’s the start of a good process,” said Anthony
Considering most of the high-value contracts will be off the books and Phil Jackson will be making the general managing moves, Melo and the Knicks look like they will be on their way to title contention.
