Found November 17, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
Carmelo has questioned the Knicks effort all season, but the message doesn’t seem to be getting through. The Knicks lost at home again, this time to the Hawks by 20 points and Melo went off. “We ain’t playing worth a s— right now,” Anthony said. “We got to play harder. “I am disappointed too in all of our effort. We are just not getting it done. It ain’t nothing that Coach [Mike] Woodson is doing [or not doing]. It ain’t got nothing to do with X’s and O’s out there on the basketball court. We are not getting it done from an effort standpoint. It’s like we are not even trying right now.” “You just got to do more I guess,” Anthony said. “Just try to go out there and get it done as a team. I am not going to do it by myself. I don’t want to do it by myself. We got to do it as a team. We keep digging ourselves deeper and deeper.
