Carmelo Anthony Returns to New York Tonight

Carmelo Anthony On Returning to Madison Square Garden: 'It Will Be a Little Emotional'

"Walking in there, it'll be a little emotional, because from the standpoint, that's home", he said.

"I think he was as professional as he could be in his time here in NY, " said Porzingis, who considers Anthony his mentor. And his stance toward Anthony last season angered teammates who appreciated the veteran's efforts on and off the court.

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony will return to Madison Square Garden on Saturday night for the first time since the New York Knicks traded him prior to the season, and he is looking forward to the homecoming, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.

The New York Knicks havent defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in a season series since the 2005-06 (2-0).

And after placing him with MVP Russell Westbrook and fellow All-Star Paul George for the NBA's latest Big Three, the Thunder were under.500 before Friday's victory. Embiid told reporters, "This is my home". Anthony was traded to Oklahoma City for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott, and a 2018 second-round pick.

Even though he was unable to bring a consistent level of success to the Knicks, he admits he still misses NY. But I'd be lying if I said I'm not ecstatic to be going back and playing there. I spent a lot of time there - nearly seven years. "It was great times, it was bad times, but regardless, I always stuck with it, I always remained professional, I always came and did my job whether people liked me or not, so hopefully they recognize that". With Jackson fired over the summer, there was a feeling the Knicks could break away from that system, and Anthony could find success in something else had he stayed. The Knicks are playing good basketball right now and I expect it to continue tonight. "It's something that we actually talked about in the summer".

"He'll talk with those guys about how his movements are. I think it will be more cheers".

Anthony played for the Knicks for seven seasons and helped bring a resurgence and energy to the franchise, albeit with inconsistent results.

Though Anthony left NY in unfavourable conditions, the star forward believes he still shares a bond with fervent basketball fans in the Big Apple. Anthony said. "I became entrenched into not just the Knicks, but the city as a whole".

"Well obviously, I would love to have had him here to continue to learn from him", Porzingis said. He hopes the NY fans remember him fondly.

Of course, more than anything, Anthony is focused on winning.

"It's always a show".

"I'm excited to go back and play in the Garden". "Of course I want to win. That takes some time, but their unselfishness and the way they're trying to work together to me I couldn't be any more pleased and happy with that". I still believe they are the best team in the West... "It will be fun to be back in the Garden." .

On the season, his former team is over-achieving a bit (15-13), holding onto the eighth seed.

"Look, we all got to move on, man".

"I had a little shock pain there, and that's it". They're having fun, they're enjoying the game.

Oklahoma City let the Philadelphia 76ers virtually the entire contest, but a scoreless final 5:21 minutes allowed Philly to claw their way back and send it to overtime. But that will always be a part of me.

At home, NY is 13-5 ATS with 9 overs and 9 unders.
