New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony is not mincing words about his team's 3-13 start this season.
“We are the laughingstock of the league,” Anthony told reporters, according to the New York Daily News. “I mean, it’s nothing to hide. We are."
The Knicks play the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday evening on TNT, a game that will be analyzed by the outspoken Charles Barkley, among others.
Anthony seems to be preparing himself for the worst.
“Do I like being laughed at? Hell, no. I don't like that feeling,” he said.
The Knicks have lost nine games in a row, their worst skid since February 2006.
“I agree with him,” the Knicks’ J.R. Smith said of Anthony's words. “Right now we do [stink]. I think everybody in this gym would agree.”
