Carmelo Anthony said late Saturday night that the New York Knicks’ struggles and the trade rumors swirling around him have been “testing my will,” though he’s trying to remain optimistic.
“I’m still keeping it [mellow], still keeping it cool, man. It definitely kind of tests you, can put you to the test,” Anthony said after the Knicks’ 111-104 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“That’s kind of where you have to dig deep at, despite of everything that’s going on, that’s surrounding — I don’t even want to say us — me,” Anthony said. “It’s testing me. It’s testing my will. It’s testing me as a human being. It also is making me stronger throughout this process.”
