Carmelo Anthony Threatened to Beat Up Tim Hardaway Jr. as Knicks Unravel

By Jason McIntyre

Carmelo Anthony didn’t like that 2nd-year wing Tim Hardaway Jr. implored him to “get the rebound” in a game last week, so the franchise player (LOL) cursed at him and told him he was going to beat him up. Your 2014-2015 New York Knicks! Via Chris Broussard:

"The New York Knicks were en route to their fifth straight loss last week against Brooklyn when a frustrated Tim Hardaway Jr. screamed angrily, “Get the rebound!” Certain his second-year teammate was speaking to him, Carmelo Anthony approached Hardaway on the way down the court and used an expletive to ask Hardaway who in the world he thought he was talking to. Anthony, according to sources, then used another expletive in telling Hardaway he was going to beat him up when they got into the locker room after the game."

The fight never happened. But good luck, Derek Fisher and Phil Jackson, the Knicks hate the triangle offense!

Wouldn’t the 4-19 Knicks be … about 4-19 if they hadn’t kept Carmelo Anthony?

Wait, don’t answer that.
