Carmelo Anthony is a little bit lighter, heavier in the wallet and extremely confident entering the coming season. Anthony told the New York Post that “the Knicks will absolutely make the playoffs this season.”

“Yeah, I think so for sure. Absolutely,” an impressively slimmed-down Anthony said of the Knicks’ playoff chances before entering the Jordan Gym Terminal 23 on W. 32nd Street for a late morning-to-early afternoon workout with a group of NBA players.
Anthony snuffed an attempt to establish any goals for the revamped Knicks, who will enter their first full season under team president Phil Jackson and new coach Derek Fisher.
“I can’t wait to get started,” said Anthony, who missed the playoffs for the first time in his career when the Knicks stumbled to a 37-45 record last season. “No goals. Not setting any goals, but I just can’t wait to get it back on.”
