Carmelo Anthony is Focused on Making Knicks NBA Champions
Carmelo Anthony is shaping up to be the man to lead the New York Knicks forward to NBA Championship victory – provided they can beat one of the best basketball teams in NBA history, Miami Heat.
Even Carmelo himself admits “You know, as a fan of basketball, just to watch and see them win 27 games in a row, that’s quite unheard of in our time, in my time”. However, he is confident that beating Miami is possible.
Anthony, a six-time NBA All-Star has a number of ways to keep himself focused and grounded. He values his family above all else: “My whole family knows the things that we’ve been through, the struggles that we had to go through.
[Buying my mother a house] was a simple sign of appreciation, to get her from where we were living and to make her feel comfortable, and make her feel appreciated.”
His other passion is boxing: “When it comes to boxing, it’s a matter of putting myself in a different mentality… My focus level has to be at an all-time in a boxing gym. And that transcends to the basketball court.”
