Carmelo Anthony called the Cleveland Cavaliers’ drama surrounding LeBron James “more comical” than the New York Knicks’ issues this season, reports USA Today’s Michael Singer.
The drama that Anthony alludes to is James’s recent unfollowing spree on Twitter, in which the star unfollowed numerous accounts including that of the Cavs and several media members.
“(The Cavaliers’) drama is more comical,” Anthony told reporters Wednesday. “It’s more getting off Twitter. Know what I mean? It’s always something that they blow up. (LeBron) unfollowing the organization. Him shutting his Twitter down. It is always something over there along those lines.
“Over here it’s drama, a different type of drama over here.”
The Knicks, who are currently 29–43 and in 13th place in the Eastern Conference standings, fired head coach Derek Fisher earlier this season. New York will finish the 2015–16 campaign with its fourth losing season in the last five years.
The Cavs, however, are currently 51–20 and sit in first place in the East, as they look to secure the top seed for the playoffs with 11 games remaining in their regular season.
