Carmelo Anthony’s first game as a New York Knicks, wearing a #7 jersey Wednesday night, was indeed a triumphant one! The New York Knicks beat the Milwakee Bucks 114-108. Many wondered if Melo, Amar’e Stoudamire and newly recruited Chauncey Billups could deliver, and there’s no doubt they can.
In a televised press conference earlier in the day Anthony spoke about the trade from the Denver Nuggets and what he hopes for in the future of his basketball career.
He says, “You know this morning I came in early, got some shots in by myself. I still felt like I was just coming in for a shoot around, you know, opposing team…I didn’t…it ain’t really sink in yet that I’m a New York Knick.
I feel like I’m still dreaming right now. It was a dream come true for myself and I’m ready to get down to business right now. I know it’s only twenty-six, twenty-something, twenty-seven games, something like that, left, and I know we gotta gel, we gotta get our chemistry down but at the same time we gotta roll. We’ve got things we’ve got to accomplish. We’ve got goals to reach. It starts now.”
Wife and TV personality LaLa Vasquez was in attendance to support her man.
Loving those shoes by the way!
