07:16 AM ET 10.29 | Carmelo Anthony acknowledged that, since the Eastern Conference is probably tougher this season, 54 wins and a division title will be harder than it was in 2012-13. And just two days before the Knicks' season-opening game at the Garden against the Bucks, the reigning NBA scoring champion said he didn't know yet whether he would have enough help for the team to take another step forward this season. "It's still early, it's kind of hard to say what type of team we have," Anthony said after Monday's practice. "Do we believe we can win it? Yeah, we have to believe that. It's kind of hard to say as far as where our team is at, how good of a team we can be. It's a hard thing to address." In last season's playoffs, with J.R. Smith imploding and Amar'e Stoudemire severely limited, Anthony was without a reliable second scorer.

Based on the video on KnicksNow.com Melo does not sound confident in his troops. You almost get the feeling that he wants out of New York when you consider all of the talking he is doing. Right now he is the biggest distraction... Why doesn't he just stop talking and play the game the right way and motivate his troops and leave it all on the floor? I thought Tyson Chandler was all that?

Sad. He continues to talk and it sounds more like his foot is halfway out of the door. He has no faith in his teammates. His teammates won't have faith in him soon if he keeps talking like this.

So much pessimism from so many angles of course everyone is gonna jump on the bandwagon on how"horrible" the Knicks are gonna be this year..... It sounds like Melo is tired of the questions being posed - Play ball and let's see what we got cause I don't think an aging roster of Pierce, Garnett, Terry and a chronic bum ankle from Deron plus a rookie coach is the better squad in NYC... knickstape BABY...!!!
