Jim Boeheim believes Carmelo Anthony should consider leaving the New York Knicks in order to win a title, reports USAToday

The Syracuse Orange coach believes Anthony, who could become a free agent this summer,  should look to move on to gain success. 

And Boeheim believes Anthony must win a championship, if he is going to be recognised as a great player. 

Boeheim said: “If you’re a great player in the NBA. For you to be recognized as a great player you have to win a championship. It’s as simple as that.”

However Anthony's immediate attention will be on helping the Knicks in the Atlantic Division. The Knicks have been in terrible form of late and have lost four of their last five matches, with their latest setback coming against the Sacramento Kings at Madison Square Garden yesterday. 

Anthony and Co. will now focus on getting back to winning ways against the Memphis Grizzlies as the two sides go head-to-head at the FedExForum on Wednesday. 

It remains to be seen as to whether Anthony will look to opt out of his contract in the final year, or if he will remain with the Knicks for the long term. 

What do you think? Should Anthony leave the Knicks behind? Feel free to comment below!
