Carmelo Anthony’s patience is being tried, perhaps in ways even Ewing did not have to deal with when he was under the intense New York media microscope for 15 seasons with the Knicks. Anthony said the drama can get to him.
“You’ve got to deal with that, even though I try not to read it. And everywhere you go, even if you don’t hear about it, somebody is telling you about it, somebody is saying something,” Anthony said of the trade rumors and drama around him and the Knicks. “It can be mentally draining, mentally fatiguing.”
