says anything less than a trip to the Eastern Conference Finals for the Knicks is “unacceptable” and that Amar’e Stoudemire is willing to come off the bench to get there.

“Winning the division, getting out the first round, getting to the Eastern Conference Finals, ” Anthony, who scored a game-high 33 points as the Knicks came from behind to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves, 94-91 Sunday, told Stephen A. Smith on the Sunday Conversation on ESPN. “I don’t see anything less than that.”

Asked by Smith if anything less was unacceptable, Melo said, “It’s unacceptable. I’ll sit and tell you right now that it’s unacceptable. With the guys we have, with the team that we have, with the roster that we have, it’s unacceptable.”
