George Karl Says Carmelo Anthony Will Win Championship ‘Some Day’

Nuggets Knicks BasketballCarmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks are rolling along. They have won six of their last seven games and are in the hunt for the NBA’s best record, causing some to consider the possibility of the Knicks winning their first championship since 1973.

Nuggets coach George Karl is hopping on the bandwagon, sort of. Karl believes a ring is in Anthony’s future. He’s just not saying when.

“I feel that Melo’s going to win a championship someday,” Karl said, according to ZagsBlog.com. “Scoreboard and numbers and stat sheets aren’t important. It’s the team scoreboard and the intangibles that make winners champions.”

Knicks fans probably would be fine with this prediction as long as it involved Anthony winning that championship in New York. If somebody had told Cleveland fans in 2009 that LeBron James would win a championship within four years, they would have been ecstatic, too.
