Carmelo: Knicks-Nets Will be Best NBA Rivalry
Carmelo Anthony said Tuesday he believes the Knicks are a better team than they were last season and called the Nets rivalry now the best in the NBA. The restocked Nets, with Kidd as their coach, are getting all the hype, and Anthony, a Brooklyn native, is savoring it.
“I love it,” Anthony said. “I think it’s a great for sports. I think it’s great for us as a Knicks organization. To have somebody we can compete with on a consistent basis four times a year, I think it’s going to be the best rivalry in basketball for a long, long time.’’
