Melo Wanted Knicks to End Miami’s Streak
As the Heat kept winning games — 27 in a row before their loss to the Bulls on Wednesday night — Carmelo Anthony wanted their streak to continue. But that was as a fan.
Playing for the Eastern Conference foe Knicks, that definitely wasn’t the case. Melo wanted to make some history by being on the first team to snap the Heat’s success.
“Who wouldn’t want to end it? Absolutely,” he said on Thursday while appearing on ESPN New York 98.7 FM radio. “I mean, it was kind of two-fold because as a fan, just taking away my competitive spirit, my competitive nature, you want to just see them keep it going.”
