Carmelo Anthony refuted claims that he was in less than peak shape this season.

Mike Woodson earlier this week issued a challenge to Anthony to come back in better condition next season.

"I think you guys looked at that a little bit too much, overanalyzed that," Anthony said. "We all can come back in better shape, better condition.

"I'm not going against what coach Woodson said. But I felt like I was in phenomenal shape, especially coming down the stretch, late March, April, the whole month of April, even coming down to the playoffs."
