Speaking from the team’s training facility at Media Day on Monday, (Carmelo) Anthony said his free agent decision wasn’t easy, but he wouldn’t have felt right about leaving New York after forcing his way there midway through the 2011 season.

“For me to just get up and leave like that, now that I look back at it … I wouldn’t have felt right within myself,” Anthony said. “From a basketball standpoint it probably would have been maybe the greatest thing to do, but for me personally, I wouldn’t have felt right with myself knowing that I wanted to come here, I kind of forced my way here to New York, and I have some unfinished business to take care of. So I wouldn’t have felt right from a personal standpoint, just getting up and leaving like that.”
