Melo To Fan: ‘Get Your Money Back’
The New York Knicks suffered another devastating loss on Tuesday night. This time they lost 104-85 courtesy of the Portland Trail Blazers. With the losses pilling up, players, management, and fans are frustrated with what the play on the court has been since January. On Tuesday night, a heckler took it to himself to tell star forward Carmelo Anthony how he feels.
With just under five minutes to play, a heckler shouted at Anthony. Anthony's response was pretty on point.
"Look, the owner's right there," Anthony said he told the fan. "Ask for your money back."
Anthony then elaborated: "He kept calling my name, calling my name, saying, 'You guys suck, you guys suck,'" Anthony said. "At that point, I was trying to gather myself, and I turned around. All I did was point at [James] Dolan and told him, 'Look, the owner's right there. Ask for your money back.' He's calling me and telling me he's never coming to another game and we suck. Just don't want to hear that. I pointed to the owner and told him, 'You deal with that with him. Maybe you can get your money back.'"
The fan was then confronted by security and escorted from his seat; a mere few feet away from Dolan.
We all know the team isn't structured to win, but how much of that blame do we put on the players compared to owner James Dolan?
