The Knicks never came close this season, going 37-45. Anthony said it was a "failure" and an "embarrassment" that he's unwilling to go through again, which could force him to look elsewhere since New York will have trouble changing its roster next season.
"I want to come back. I also want to win. Me wanting to be here, if we can put ourselves in position to at least compete at a high level over the course of whatever, five years, the contract would be, then I'm willing to stay here," Anthony said Thursday while wearing a red hat with the letters "NY" at the Knicks' training center.
He met with Jackson, who took over as team president in March and has said he could envision Anthony as a central piece of the Knicks' future. Less clear is what he thinks about Coach
"To be honest with you, Mike Woodson, me and him have become, he's been a guy I can talk to," Anthony said. "He's been almost a father figure, a friend, a guy who I can bounce stuff off of. I've been a guy he's talked to multiple times about multiple things, different situations. So when that time comes, if it's ready for me to step up and take that next step and say, 'OK, Mike Woodson needs to stay or go' — I don't think it would come down to that — but I'll back him. If he needs my recommendation, whether it's here or anywhere else, I'll back him."
