The Knicks will soon be free to go on an April vacation for the fifth straight year, but Carmelo Anthony is happy to have other plans.
For the first time since 2013, Anthony will be busy playing postseason basketball this month with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
“It feels good, man, kind of just to be back in that postseason mindset,” Anthony told The Oklahoman after the Thunder clinched a playoff spot Monday night with a win over the Heat. “Looking forward to not planning vacations. Even though I would love to be with my family, I think they understand that this is very important.”
After four consecutive losing seasons with the Knicks, Carmelo agreed to waive his no trade clause in September 2017 before being dealt to the Thunder in exchange for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a 2018 second-round pick.
