Carmelo Anthony says recent comments were taken out of context

Carmelo Anthony will go down in history as the most successful player in team USA history if he scoops another gold medal in Rio de Janeiro. Having played in four Olympic competitions, he is gunning for a third-straight competition win.

Recently the New York Knicks forward claimed he could 'retire happy' without a championship, knowing that he had enjoyed so much success on the international stage. However, the 32-year-old believes his words were taken out of context and went on Instagram to vent his frustration.

Some people criticised Melo after what he said, claiming he was only in it for the money and wasn't bothered about chasing a ring. However, the former Denver Nuggets man emphasised the fact a championship was still on his mind by posting a picture of himself and LeBron James with a pretty interesting caption.

It read:

ME: I’m bout to go off
Bron: Chill, Chill don’t do it
Me: Why Not?
Bron: Bc, they don’t even know the context of your answer or the question.
Me: So, they could just get away with this?
Me: Corny, B
Bron: StayMe7o

Time is running out for Anthony to potentially add a title to his collection of honours and the Knicks seem some way of challenging the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference.

The additions of Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose make them a potential playoff contender, but the team still does not compare to the unit that saw off the Golden State Warriors in dramatic style during the finals.
