PBT Extra: Is it time for Carmelo Anthony to shut it down?


I’m not a doctor, but I’ll play one on the Internet…

The amazing Jenna Corrado and I talk New Year’s resolutions for some NBA names and Carmelo Anthony was at the top of the list: Should he shut it down and get surgery? If his knee is really bothering him as much as it appears, absolutely he should. Yes, he should have concerns about surgery — any surgery has potential complications — and I get he wants to play in the All-Star Game at Madison Square Garden, but he shouldn’t do those things at the expense of his long-term health.

We also talk about what a couple of coaches should do this new year — Kevin McHale in Houston and Tom Thibodeau in Chicago.
