Carmelo Anthony: No Reason For New York Knicks Fans To Boo Me

Oklahoma City Thunder star Carmelo Anthony says he shouldn’t be booed when he returns to New York in December.

If you thought that the Carmelo Anthony-related drama with the New York Knicks was over, think again. For just when Melo says he’s done talking about the Knicks, he’s back talking about the Knicks.

Anthony will return to New York for the first time since being traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder on December 16. How the fans react to him upon his return will be interesting after he tweeted that his time in New York was hell.

But Melo doesn’t expect anything but love from the Madison Square Garden crowd.

“It’s too far away to think about yet, but it will be a home game for me,’’ he told Marc Berman of the New York Post.“(I have) a good feeling. I have a good feel about that one. Coming back and playing in front of those fans. I feel good about that.’’

When asked about getting only cheers he said,  “I hope so. I don’t see why not. We’ll see when that time comes. I’m not worried about how they take (the tweet). I said what I said and that’s it.’’

Melo and the Thunder beat the Knicks in their season-opener Thursday night 105-84. As for whether or not the fans will boo Melo when he returns to New York, it will depend on how the fans feel about him and that tweet. We’ll just have to wait and see.
