Carmelo Anthony Likely to Be Shut Down Following the All-Star Game

Knicks star small forward Carmelo Anthony may have already played his last game of the regular season.

The veteran scoring specialist out of Syracuse announced that he is likely going to shut down following Sunday’s All Star Game, which will take place at Madison Square Garden.

“It’s little things that I’m doing out there on the court. I’m restricted, I’m not getting that power or that bounce, and then to do something like I did today, I think I’m getting closer to that point. I think due to the lack of movement, the lack of explosiveness I have right now — I’m just trying to compensate and try to figure it out as it goes along,” said Anthony.

This could be seen as a positive for Knicks fans, as they watch their team plummet towards the top overall pick in this summers draft, which could mean Duke center Jahlil Okafor.

Anthony is averaging 24.2 points this season, in 40 games. He has been nursing a knee injury for quite some time this season.

    I good move by the Knicks. Melo needs to be healthy for next season! The worst thing that could happen would be that the Knicks would regroup and have a solid plan outlined for next season and then Melo would be hurt because of an aggravated injury.

    Definitely tough if you’re a Knicks fan, but it’s for the best long term. Trust me everyone! I’ve been a Mets fan my whole life, I know tough situations with tough injuries IN tough seasons.

    The Knicks will get it together though. I have confidence in Phil Jackson. Sure things have been a disaster this season, but let’s give it some time people!

    – Matt
