Not to get Melo-dramatic (see what I did there?), but the 2012-13 season serves as a huge make-or-break year for Anthony and the Knicks. After gutting their roster to build their club around Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire, New York still has nothing to show for it.
The Knicks’ star scorer averaged 22.6 points per game, his lowest mark in seven years, and often looked uninterested until the team replaced Mike D’Antoni as head coach. As the Knicks prepare to at least pass the first-round barrier, they need the Anthony that scored 29.8 points per game in April to show up for the entire year.
New York's star is already keeping busy this offseason. Anthony has dropped 12 pounds since the playoffs in hopes of entering next season in better shape.
Anthony should commit to the following tasks during his time off to stay focused for the upcoming season.
