None of that is stopping Carmelo Anthony.
New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony told ESPN on Monday that his recruitment of marquee free agent Kevin Durant has already begun and will not be affected “whether he meets with the Knicks or not.”
”I’m with KD now; he’s right downstairs,” Anthony told ESPN in an interview that will air later Monday on SportsCenter. “We’ve been together. We’ve been talking.
“I do consider myself part of the Knicks,” Anthony continued, “so that meeting has already taken place.”
Anthony has been at this for months. Why stop this close to the finish line, even if the Knicks’ odds are long?
They play in a market that can attract elite talent. It’s worth taking a swing at Durant.
