Carmelo Anthony Wants His Teammates to Tell Him If He's Being a Ball Hog

Carmelo Anthony Wants His Teammates to Tell Him If He's Being a Ball Hog

Know who's really glad that the Giants won the NFC Championship last night? The Knicks! If not for that win, Carmelo Anthony & Co. would be getting ripped even worse than they already are in the New York Post and New York Daily News today. Right now, the Knicks stink (six straight losses, fellas?!) and, unless they suddenly fire Mike D'Antoni learn to play a little D and share the ball better, things probably aren't going to get any better anytime soon.

For his part, 'Melo is willing to do whatever needs to be done to get his team back on the right track. If that means him taking less shots? So be it. If that means him passing the ball to Amar'e Stoudemire more? He's down. And if that means sitting down and having his teammates shit all over the way he's running the team right now? LEGGO!

"We as a team need to do a better job getting Amar'e the ball," 'Melo said over the weekend. "I have the ball in my hands. Maybe it's on me. Maybe I need to get him the ball a little bit more, help him out with that. Me and [Stoudemire] will talk, try to figure it out together. If I'm doing too much, I want him to tell me. I want the guys on my team to tell me if I'm doing too much. We handle it like that."

Whatever the case, something has to change with the Knicks. And soon. You guys do realize you're behind the Suns, Cavaliers, and Timberwolves in this week's Complex NBA Power Rankings, right? Get your act together, please.
