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?”
“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.”
