(NEW YORK) — Carmelo Anthony has no clue why there has been speculation he can’t play with the new sensation that is Jeremy Lin.
“I can play with anybody,” Anthony said. “People said, could I play with Amare when I first got here? People say can I play with Jeremy Lin right now? It’s funny to me. I accept it…I embrace it. When I get back it will be that much more fun for myself.”
The Knicks have won their last three games without Carmelo in the lineup and are currently on a five game winning streak.
Carmelo is expected to return to the court later in the week.
