Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony says he never really had the rap for being a selfish player until Jeremy Lin showed up. And blew up in New York this year: “let’s be frank about it. When it comes to the Knicks, we’re talking about one particular point in time. We’re talking about the whole ‘Linsanity’ thing. That’s when it started. That’s when it started to escalate as far as people saying I was selfish.” Let’s be frank about one more thing Melo: people saw you as selfish long before you got to New York. New York may have been willing to give you a clean slate, but they saw the team wasn’t winning with you, took off when you got hurt, and then went back into the tank when you returned. Then saw you do something players never do: talk about another guy’s deal: when you said Houston’s offer to Lin was quote ridiculous.
