Carmelo Anthony has the option to become a free agent next year but he has made it clear that his heart is in New York. This is great news for the Knicks fans, Melo is one of the best players in the league and is the scoring champion. If he has the right team around him he has the ability to lead this team to a championship.

Reported by Newsday:

“I’m not going nowhere,” Anthony said during an interview Tuesday with Bloomberg Television’s “Market Makers.”

Money aside, Anthony pushed for the February 2011 trade from Denver to be in the spotlight and try to help the Knicks win their first championship since 1973. He led them to 54 wins last season and their first Atlantic Division title in 19 years, but they lost to Indiana in the second round.

Anthony, 29, remains hungry to carry the Knicks to a title.

“That is one of the reasons why I wanted to come here to New York, just so I could take on those pressures and those challenges,” Anthony said. “A lot of people do not like to deal with the pressure. A lot of people do not know how to deal with the challenges they face. To me, it is everyday life.”
You got to love his competitive spirit and old school mentality, unlike his fellow NBA peers Carmelo isn’t about joining other superstars to have an easier route to win championships.
