Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim Expresses His Thoughts On Carmelo Anthony & New York Knicks
Carmelo Anthony's former Syracuse University couch, Jim Boeheim, spoke to the Syracuse Post-Standard recently about the current state of the New York Knicks. He continuously defends Melo, who helped lead Boeheim's team to a Championship title in 2003. Click inside to check out more on this story!
After the Knicks were recently disqualified from Round 2 of the NBA play-offs after losing to the Indiana Pacers in Game 6, Jim Boeheim had to come to Carmelo Anthony's aid and defend his former college basketball player. Boeheim told Syracuse Post-Standard this past weekend that “he did what he can do. He played very well the final game. Everybody’s killing him, but Tyson Chandler just didn’t try to catch the ball." The Syracuse coach seemed to be singling out NYK's Tyson Chandler, saying that "he claims he never gets the ball, but he doesn't try to get the ball." Boeheim further explains in his interview that Melo will never get a ring if the Knicks team, as a whole, does not make some serious changes. But to top it off, Boeheim also added that the Knicks players are "getting nothing but older." OUCH!
What changes do you think the Knick's organization has to make to win a championship?
