Carmelo Anthony shrugs off most criticism, but when the critique came from Bernard King, he noticed.
On King’s twitter account a mild criticism appeared, urging Anthony to play more team ball. But as it gained attention, King claimed that the tweet wasn’t his - rather coming from “an associate” he told Newsday - and he shut the account down.
“I found out about the alleged Bernard King tweet this morning when I got to shootaround,” Anthony said. “I didn’t think too much about it. I know Bernard very well and I heard he was trying to reach out to me to let me know it wasn’t something that he said, he just wanted to apologize. I didn’t really pay too much any mind to that at all.”
Anthony also noticed that the MVP balloting in which he was given one first-place vote, from the Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn - keeping LeBron James from being a unanimous choice.
“As far as the guy in Boston, I don’t know why he catch so much flak for that,” Anthony said. “He has the right to vote for whoever he want. Lebron won the MVP. Why is everybody so mad that he didn’t win in unanimously? Thank you.”
