08:09 AM ET 12.25 | So far, he has the Knicks aimed precisely in this direction. In an interview with ESPN's Stephen A. Smith, [Anthony] says anything less than a trip to the Eastern Conference finals would be "unacceptable" for the Knicks this season. ... In an excerpt of SportsCenter's Sunday Conversation, Smith asks Anthony what he thinks would constitute a successful season. "Winning the division, getting out of the first round, getting to the Eastern Conference finals," Anthony says. "I don't see anything less than that." He adds that anything less than a trip to the conference finals is unacceptable. "I'll sit here and tell you right now, it's unacceptable. With the guys we have, with the team we have, with the roster that we have, it's unacceptable."

umm ok? So he's a step above McGrady. I never got why people think Melo is anything more than a bit offensive player.

3 knocks on Melo:

1) Nothing other than a scorer
2) Doesn't make his team better
3) Can't get it done in the playoffs

He's sure trying his best to fix all 3 of those things this year...
