In a world of over-apologizing, it’s refreshing to hear one rescinded. Carmelo Anthony recently apologized via the New York Knicks team Twitter account over an incident with a heckler. In the throes of another embarrassing defeat, Anthony told the heckler to go ask Knicks owner James Dolan for a refund. The day after apologizing, Melo came forward and said that the apology wasn’t his idea.
“I don’t think I said anything wrong. [The fan] said he wasn’t coming to any more games. I said: ‘Why are you talking to me about it? Discuss that with [Dolan.] Don’t yell my name out. Wasn’t no curse words. He yelled, ‘Melo, you guys suck. I’m not coming to any more games.’ I said, ‘I think you should talk to the owner and get your money back.'”
Melo doesn’t realize that indirectly encouraging Dolan to do something good for the team would mean his own termination. Knickerbocker please. An NBA superstar who’s not frustrated after almost fifteen years of not even sniffing the NBA Finals is confused about how this works. The Knicks require wholesale liquidation. Nice cornrows. Would it kill you to pass?
