Carmelo: Haven’t Thought About Free Agency
Carmelo Anthony, while talking to kids at his Queens College camp, made an ominous remark about his bid to win a title as a Knick and break the 41-year drought.
“My window is closing,’’ Anthony told the campers. “I’m trying to bring a championship to New York ASAP.’’
Later on, Anthony specified he was not referring to his window closing as a Knick. He has an opt-out clause after this season but said he honestly hasn’t given it a minute’s thought on what he will do.
“As far as ruling anything out, I haven’t thought about anything beyond today,’’ Anthony said. “ My mind is not thinking about next offseason right now. I’m trying to do what I do this offseason, get right, work out, train and prepare myself for this season. When that time comes, I’ll deal with that. It’s not something I ‘m thinking about right now.’’
In fact, Melo seemed to indicate how happy he is at the Garden, telling campers, “New York is the greatest city to play in the world.”
