The New York Knicks have just finished a season where they failed to secure a playoff berth for the seventh time in 10 seasons. Some critics have claimed that Carmelo Anthony should leave in the offseason and that the Knicks should rebuild, Anthony however is not keen on either.
Speaking to media after the final game of the regular season, Anthony said: "I'm not at the point in my career where I want to rebuild... I want to come back. I also want to win."
There have been plenty of rumors linking Anthony with moves to Chicago, LA and even Miami but according to the All-Star forward, he would like to stay in New York and be a part of a title winning team.
The Knicks had improved from their disastrous start to the season, with the hiring of coaching legend Phil Jackson as team president.
However the Knicks, who do not have their own first round pick in the upcoming draft, will be facing an uphill battle to markedly improve their roster without a number of marquee free-agent signings.
Anthony, who is 29, and very right when he says he does not want to be a part of a rebuilding project in New York. However if he wants to be a part of a title winning team in the next couple of years, 'Melo's best chance is probably outside of the Big Apple.
