Of his reluctance to make his presence felt after teammate Quincy Acey followed a hard foul on Washington’s John Wall with a (missed) punch, Knicks SF Carmelo Anthony explained,  “I wasn’t going to allow myself to run up to a group of people in the circle and now something happens to me, now I’ve got to worry about what I might do or what I’m capable of doing.”

No one can say this isn’t the wise old voice of experience.
