Carmelo Anthony may have made a splash in the 2012 London Olympics, but he’s making an even bigger splash commenting on Lin-Sanity and the selfish label that’s attributed to him. He believes the label never started until Lin-Sanity started via USA Today:
“Let’s be frank about it,” he said. “When it comes to the Knicks, we’re talking about one particular point in time. We’re talking about the whole ‘Linsanity’ thing. That’s when it started. That’s when it started to escalate as far as people saying I was selfish.”
“Lin came and we started winning games and then we started losing games, and they could only point to one thing, which is me, the leader of the team,” Anthony said. “They’re not going to point to Amar’e. They’re not going to point to (guard) Iman Shumpert. They’re going to point to me. I accept that. It doesn’t bother me.”
Perhaps, Carmelo Anthony should just learn how to speak to the media…or hire a mouthpiece.
