Carmelo Touts 100 Percent Focus For Fast Start

The New York Knicks have started the season 3-0 and Carmelo Anthony is leading the team in scoring, rebounding and diving for loose balls. Anthony's attitude and fitness also are better.

“It’s just me knowing what I want: I want to win,” Anthony said Thursday. “My mental focus right now is 100%. I haven’t been this focused in a long time as far as just really able to just focus in on basketball and nothing else. So right now, I think that’s the key ingredient right now.”

Anthony also now has a coach in Mike Woodson that uses a system to better fit his game. Anthony has been playing a lot in the post where he can utilize his quickness and mid-range game.

“It’s great,” Woodson said. “But I’m trying to get Melo to do everything. I don’t want him to be perceived as a scorer.”
