Apparently, Carmelo Anthony didn't hear the shots that Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov fired at New York Knicks owner James Dolan last week. If he did, he wouldn't have said what he said at a basketball camp at St. John's University over the weekend.
"There's no rivalry between us and Brooklyn right now," he said. "It starts on that first game. We'll see what happens with that first game. But, as of right now, we are focused on ourselves. We are not really focused on nobody else."
Clearly, you're not taking the Nets very seriously right now, 'Melo. You might want to change that, like, now. Because Brooklyn is here…and so is the rivalry. Let's get it started.
