New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony told the New York Post that he wants the team to have the same mentality Team USA had during its gold-medal winning effort at the London Olympics.  

“I’m excited to get this thing going,” Anthony said. “Especially coming off this run we just had with the USA team. To be able to put that team together and still be able to accomplish something. I want to bring that mentality back here to the Knicks.”

The Knicks have been criticized for a lack of chemistry between the players since the team acquired Anthony in February 2011.   Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler will have to form a bond quickly with newcomers, Jason Kidd, Raymond Felton and Marcus Camby for a chance to contend for an NBA title.

“I’m excited, everybody’s working,” Anthony said during a ProCamps event at St. John’s University. “Amar’e is in the gym, Iman [Shumpert] is getting his knee right, Tyson was out there with me. We have veteran guys who we don’t really have to teach the game to. It’s a matter of putting it all together and making this run.”

“I’m ready to see what [Stoudemire] added to his arsenal,” said Anthony. “I’m excited by the fact that he even went down there to work with [Olajuwon]. That’s a big step forward.”
