New York Knicks teammates Carmelo Anthony and Tim Hardaway Jr. denied Wednesday that they have a poor relationship in response to a report earlier in the day by ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard.

Anthony and Hardaway confirmed that they argued during last week’s loss to the Brooklyn Nets, but said the spat wasn’t a reflection of their relationship.

“Me and Tim have no problems,” Anthony said before the Knicks’ 109-95 loss to the Spurs. “…. Tim is a guy who I always wrapped my arm around and put under my wing from Day 1, helped him through times when he’s been down, and I will continue doing that.”

Added Hardaway Jr.: “We’re brothers. Brothers argue in the heat of the moment and then they make up. It’s just that simple. I look at Melo as a mentor.”
