Anthony Reminds People He’s a Winner
(Carmelo) Anthony, however, remains optimistic that games will be played this year and he’s also confident that he and Amar’e Stoudemire will make the Knicks a winner.
“No doubt,” said Anthony, who is well-aware that the Knicks went 12-16 following last year’s celebrated trade with the Denver Nuggets that brought him to New York. “We won’t have a losing record. I haven’t had a losing record in eight years.”
Anthony won a college championship at Syracuse and added an Olympic gold medal four summers ago in China. An NBA title would put Anthony in an exclusive class with players who have won titles at all three levels. Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson are in that club, and Anthony feels he will eventually join them.
“It’s funny, people seem to forget that I have won,” Anthony said Thursday at a photo shoot in Soho.
