And the hits keep on coming for the New York Knicks.
It comes down to this one fact: he is butt hurt over the fact the management of the Knicks aren’t asking him for his personal opinions on team decisions.
Carmelo Anthony’s discontent with the Knicks organization became so severe after Monday night’s loss to the Bulls, he told a confidant he preferred to be traded before Thursday’s NBA deadline, The Post has learned.
According to a person familiar with his thinking, Anthony’s disillusionment stems most from a belief coach Mike D’Antoni and interim GM Glen Grunwald do not trust him. He is surprised that after all the Knicks gave up to trade for him, he has not been asked for more input on personnel decisions, as Deron Williams has with the Nets.
“The organization makes believe his opinions don’t matter,’’ the source said.
Let’s be honest about something, Melo was more of a superstar when he was in Denver, where the media didn’t murder his every action. He isn’t Kobe. He isn’t LeBron. He isn’t Derrick Rose. His opinion does not matter.
Then there is this:
According to the source, when Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri tried to convince Anthony to stay in Denver last season, he repeatedly told Anthony he never would be able to handle the New York media. But Anthony believes the media has been the least of his problems and wished there was more feedback from his superiors.
How much do you think I’m smirking right now?!?!
Hey, I’m human after all.
