IFWT_Melo postgame

Whatever optimism New York Knicks fans had, has dissipated quickly.  They’ve lost 15 of 18, with its past two games by an average of 18 points, including a 104-85 loss to the Portland Trailblazers on Tuesday night.  During the blowout, one fan made his frustrations known by heckling Carmelo Anthony throughout the night.  Anthony had a simple solution, he told the heckler to ask for his money back.

via ESPN:

The fan was standing a few rows behind Knicks owner James Dolan in a section of seats adjacent to the Knicks bench. During a timeout with 4:15 to play in the game, the fan started yelling in Anthony’s direction. Anthony, sitting on the bench, gestured back and eventually stood up and appeared to address the fan.

“He kept calling my name, calling my name, saying, ‘You guys suck, you guys suck,'” Anthony said after the Knicks’ 19-point loss to Portland. “At that point, I was trying to gather myself, and I turned around. All I did was point at Dolan and told him, ‘Look, the owner’s right there. Ask for your money back.’ He’s calling me and telling me he’s never coming to another game and we suck. Just don’t want to hear that. I pointed to the owner and told him, ‘You deal with that with him. Maybe you can get your money back.'”

Security guards surrounded the fan during and after his interaction with Anthony and appeared to escort the fan from his seat.
