Carmelo Anthony apologizes for calling out Knicks fan
Carmelo Anthony let his emotions get the best of him during yet another New York Knicks loss Tuesday night when he responded to a heckler, and it sounds like the team wishes he had kept his cool.
On Wednesday, Anthony issued a statement (through the Knicks) apologizing for telling an unhappy fan he should ask team owner James Dolan for a refund.

The Knicks were blown out 104-85 at home against the Portland Trailblazers. It was their 11th loss in their last 13 games, so you can understand why the fan decided to yell some not-so-nice things late in the fourth quarter.

You could argue that this is the most frustrated Anthony has been since he was traded to New York five years ago. He recently unloaded on his teammates over their poor play and said Tuesday that this season is more difficult than last year’s 17-win campaign.
