 Carmelo: Refs snub me because I'm too strong to flop
 
 

SALT LAKE CITY — A candid Carmelo Anthony explained his recent frustrations at not getting enough foul calls, saying he’s been told by referees he’s the most “difficult player’’ to officiate and vowing he will never flop.

Anthony, who has received a technical foul in two straight games, is in a five-game slump with his shooting percentage dipping to 40.6 percent on the season. He admitted his wife, La La, chastised him for yelling at female referee Lauren Holtkamp in Monday’s loss to the Mavericks.

“They just tell me I’m the most difficult player to referee in the NBA,’’ Anthony said at the morning shootaround in Utah. “I’ve heard that a couple of times. It’s unclear on who is creating the contact. My goal is to go to the basket. If I’m creating the contact going toward the basket [and] I get hit, it’s a foul.’’

Anthony is one of the most physical drivers in the game, but said he feels he’s recently not being effective because he’s not getting to the free-throw line.

I always get fouled,’’ Anthony said. “That’s what’s frustrating me. You play so hard, work so hard and don’t benefit from that. You look at other guys, you touch them and look at them wrong and get fouls. It’s a frustrating thing for me as a guy who likes to go to the basket, play in the paint. I like to play physical. It’s frustrating.

“I’m human,’’ Anthony added. “Those frustrations kick in at times, especially when you’re down there banging and know you’re getting banged on. I don’t know what else to do. I don’t know how to play another way.’’

So does he need to sell the foul more?

“See, I don’t know how to flop, that’s the thing,” Anthony said. “Nowadays guys know how to flop, get hit and put their head back. I don’t know how to flop. I won’t even look right trying to do that. I won’t even feel right trying it.

“A lot of times I get hit and I still continue to get to my spots just because I’m big and strong. A lot of guys get hit and they stop. I’m not saying they’re flopping, but they’re lighter than me. I can take a lot more physicality.”

Anthony’s extended remarks put him at risk of drawing a fine from the NBA. The league frowns on players criticizing the officiating.

But it’s not just the whistles. Anthony still believes he’s not in full groove after shutting down last season in February to undergo knee surgery and not getting on the court until August.

“The looks are there,’’ Anthony said. “Some days the rhythm is there, some days it’s not. It’s me staying in the gym finding that rhythm. Some nights they go in, some nights they don’t. There’s weeks it’s been back and games it’s not back. As a competitor, I get frustrated because I know I put so much work on those parts of my game, and when it doesn’t work out, I beat myself up.’’

The Knicks have lost six of their past eight games, and Derek Fisher has upped the level of urgency, staging a 70-minute morning shootaround after complaining of lack of practice time.

“We have to start looking at things and tightening up,’’ Anthony said. “The only time you can do that is in practice. When you don’t have that practice time, you start thinking about that. But now we got to go with it and got to get better in the games and use that as the experience and figure it out on the fly, too.’’

Anthony said the Knicks have held players meetings, and unlike heated ones in the past, these have gone smoothly.

“There’s no egos on this team,’’ Anthony said.

I don't think anyone ever expected him to be able to score but the last time I checked the advanced stats (couple weeks ago) he was still an elite rim Protector. I would take him over Any other center except maybe drummond.


I still don't think Hayward is anything special. Van Ho, this might be your chance to air me out at the end of thenyear if he ends up balling laugh.gif

Blake hardly even relies on his jumping ability to score anymore. He's actually a pretty well rounded player. He's going to be great for a while.

And DJ may be overpaid, but he's hardly just taking up space. 2nd in the league in rebounding and tied for 3rd in blocks with NT's favorite Rudy Gobert.

So, personnel wise, I think we're ok. The bigger issue is our coach and president of basketball operations.

He has 3 years remaining after this year

Really? I thought he re-signed in 2012 for 4 years. Oh well though.

We can find a team that will be willing to trade for him, if that becomes necessary.

upon looking it up he is ranked pretty high as a rim protector. Strange since no one ever talks about him anymore, i guess thats what happens when you play in utah.

 

Hayward is the white demar derosen

I think there's some execs who would say AD, maybe even a few who would still say Bron, but its hard to argue against Curry.

I mean, since he doesn't really rely on elite athleticism or size, who knows how long Curry's window of dominance is going to be? The shooting is going to be there for a long, long time.

Fairly decent read, considering it came from the NY Post.

the legs have to do with shooting.... kobes legs are gone.

 

 

 lebron was never a good perimeter player. basically spot up shooters last a long time.

I see him towards the end of his career becoming more Eddie House than Ray Allen. Albeit a better version of Eddie House.
