MANNIX: Knicks offer no cause for optimism in Christmas Day flop

From the report:

“I feel what the fans are feeling,” Anthony said after the Knicks fell to 5-26 following a Christmas Day loss to the Wizards. 

"The fans are dying, we’re dying. We’re out there, we’re not producing. We didn’t expect, I didn’t expect to be sitting at 5-26," he said. "So as much as I feel for the fans, I feel for us going through it, too. I don’t expect nobody to feel sorry for us, I don’t expect nobody to feel sorry for me." 

Earlier this week, teammate J.R. Smith referred to this season as a "nightmare." The Knicks face the Kings in Sacramento on Saturday.
