He (Carmelo Anthony) wants to compete for a championship in New York, but the Knicks’ injuries, pending buyouts of veterans, mounting losses, and really, really bad defense are weighing on him. Soon, there could be turmoil around coach Mike Woodson and his job security, which could make it all an intolerable brew.

“It’s starting to get tough to handle,” Anthony said after the Knicks blew a 17-point lead and lost to an under-manned Atlanta team that had been winless in eight games.
