Carmelo Anthony was in good spirits while talking to the media today. And who could blame him? Melo and the Knicks are up 2-0 in the best of seven series against the Celtics which resumes Friday in Boston. Anthony was in a rather chipper mood as he talked about listening to Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. He even used the words “super duper” when describing how delighted he would be if they Knicks swept the Celtics.   Melo on sweeping BOS 2 yrs after BOS swept: “If that happens I’ll be super duper happy excited…I cant lie. But I kno thats gonna be tough” — Mark Hale (@HaleMark) April 25, 2013 Melo then showed his “mellow” side as he talked about drinking wine by the fireplace during Christmas time and listening to legends, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra. Carmelo Anthony quote of day:“I listen to Tony Bennett when I’m sitting home drinking wine by the fire at Christmastime.” #Knicks — Barbara Barker (@meanbarb) April 25, 2013   More Melo:“I listen to Frank Sinatra a lot. I love Frank, man.Keeps me calm. I’m already a mellow guy, but it keeps me super calm.” — Barbara Barker (@meanbarb) April 25, 2013 I could be wrong, but I’m guessing nobody had Carmelo pegged as a Tony Bennett/Frank Sinatra fan. The post Carmelo Anthony says he listens to Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett while drinking wine by the fire at Christmas time appeared first on New York Sports Kings.
