Carmelo Anthony has "challenged" the coaching staff to single him out and hold him accountable in film sessions if he's not doing things correctly on either end of the floor.
Anthony has been working harder on the defensive end of the floor in the preseason.
"I kind of challenged the staff to kind of push me and stay on me when I'm not doing something," Anthony said. "Call it out in the film session so everybody can see that and hear that. By them doing that, when that time comes, it kind of forces me to be at the top level of my game on both ends of the court.
"Right now it's just a couple clips here and there, but for the most part I want them to do that. I think it brings the best out of me and if you bring the best out of me I think it will bring the best out of everyone on the team."
