Melo Doesn’t Compare Himself to Peers’ Success


When asked if his peer group’s achievements make him feel like he’s missing out, (Carmelo) Anthony said he doesn’t need to compare himself to his pals to yearn for playoff competition.

“No, not even that,” Anthony said at shootaround Monday, ahead of the Knicks’ matchup with Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers. “Not even because of that point that you just made. I think it’s more for kind of just me, and the competitor that I am, the person that I am. I want to be there. I don’t have to look at someone else’s situation and say, ‘Oh, I miss that, or I want that, or I need that.'”
