There was some media-generated talk today about the confusion on defense last season. Carmelo said this year's scheme "makes sense already."
Carmelo called Jeter a "mentor." Said they've discussed "the ins & outs" of NYC. "You can't get a better guy to give you advice on that."
Carmelo said he went to Jeter's final game at Yankee Stadium - and has talked often. Admitted it's a cliche, but said he tips his cap to him
Melo said he was at derek jeter's last home game and he got chills the way it ended.
Young: "Melo had me worried. I didn't know what he would do. I knew Lala liked LA. Women have the final say. I knew it would be over for me"
Noah says he loves team, is excited to get to work and no regrets about no 'Melo with team that's in place
Noah on Melo: "He made the decision that was right for his family. I moved on right away."
Finally, a mention of Carmelo Anthony. Jo: "I wasn't disappointed at all. I try to recruit everybody. Carmelo's a hell of a player."
Best moment of media day was Amare being asked to join Carmelo on stage. Last time that happened they played back-up kazoo with you-know-who
NYK ranked 8th in points allowed per game last season, 24th in per 100 possessions. Melo said today they were 24th. I call that a victory!
Melo told me he's "the most underrated superstar" in the league...
Melo: I'm willing to be patient. Now how long (am) I willing to be patient? I can’t tell you that.
Melo): That ...really shows you that it wasn’t all about just running and jumping ship and trying to get something in the immediate future.
