Carmelo Expects Intense Competition In Semifinal Against Argentina
Carmelo Anthony expects a hard-fought game Friday versus Argentina.
“We already know what to expect as far as the intensity,” Anthony said. “They’re going to bring it. For a lot of them guys, there is the possibility that this could be their last game together internationally. We know the energy level they’re going to bring, the intensity level they’re going to bring. We know what’s at stake. This is one of the biggest games we’ve ever played. We know that. But at the end of the day, it’s not about Xs and Os. It’s about who wants it the most.”
Anthony would love to write the closing chapter on Argentina's run of Olympic success.
“Why not? Why not?” Anthony said without so much as a whiff of cockiness in his voice. “We have to play them. Something has to happen. Why not end it [now]?”
