Carmelo Anthony called Slam magazine’s decision to rank him as the 15th-best player in the NBA “disrespectful” but added that he won’t use the slight as motivation.
“Nah, I’m self-motivated,” Anthony said after practice Thursday. “I don’t really need something like that to motivate me. Probably somebody sitting at their desk over at Slam coming up and doing their job.”
