Melo Says Assists Don’t Matter As Long As Knicks Win

GREENBURGH, N.Y.Carmelo Anthony says assists don’t matter.

Well, not exactly.

But two days after he went for 36 points and just one assist in the Knicks 85-78 win over the Celtics in Game 1, Melo was asked by a reporter, “When you score 36 and your team wins, why do people care how many assists you have?”

Anthony’s response?

“It don’t matter,” he said. “I mean, it really don’t matter to me. I know what type of player that I am, I know that I share the ball, we share the ball as a team. Sometimes me sharing the ball, I don’t always get the assists.

“It is what it is. I really don’t pay attention to it.”
