More importantly, we let it affect us on loose balls and toughness plays, physical play.
CARMELO Anthony took over in the third quarter and the New York Knicks fended off a late-game rally by the Chicago Bulls, 100-91, on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time) at the Madison Square Garden.
Anthony was asked recently about his future, which he continues to be vague in describing, but hinting that he knows what's coming. And as the seasons comes to a close, we may see the last days of Anthony as a Knicks.
Anthony has been the focal point of trade rumors, but he has a full no-trade clause.
Porzingis tweaked his back on Sunday versus the Boston Celtics, and with the Knicks going nowhere, they chose to play it safe and rest their big man on Tuesday. "The chips will be on the table in that meeting", Anthony said, smiling. You just never know.
Yeah. The chips will be on the table. Giving a 32-year-old, past his prime, Joakim Noah $72 million over four years was a bad move. Most of the deals considered had the Knicks moving another for parts and pieces-nothing meaningful. It all depends on what Knicks president Phil Jackson is able to do this summer with Anthony, a high draft pick and in free agency.
"I think in this situation everybody has an opinion", Anthony said. However, that's not how it played out.
Constellation shines after earnings beat and strong outlook
Marietta Investment Partners LLC increased its position in shares of Constellation Brands by 13.6% in the third quarter. The transaction was disclosed in a document filed with the SEC, which is available through this hyperlink . (NYSE:STZ).
Earlier this year, the Cavaliers, Celtics and Clippers showed some level of interest in trading for Anthony, who has two years, $54 million remaining on his contract, as well as a $4 million trade kicker.
The veterans, on the other hand, seemed to be focused more on themselves.
In position to actually come within a game of the Milwaukee Bucks for fifth seed in the East, they played like they'd rather be in Bora Bora come April 13 with a woeful performance that seemingly stretched all night. "It's the game that I always played and had fun and enjoyed". "Although it hasn't been as fun as I would've wanted it to be". But in the five games prior to Tuesday he at least got on the floor as the Knicks are running out the string, eliminated officially from the postseason and resting players on most nights.
The prevailing thought in National Basketball Association circles is that Anthony would agree to an off-season trade to the LA Clippers.
The Knicks opened the second quarter on a 9-0 run to move ahead 38-24. By connecting on 54.5 percent from the floor, NY established a strong offensive attack that included 18 team assists in the first half of play. The further up on the chart the team is, the better their net rating is.
Anthony also added that he is still trying to go through the motions of finishing the season strong.
