Anthony may have to show knack in bolting from the Knicks after this season. Stephen A. says it’s a done deal.

With the 3-13 Knicks getting set to take on the equally woeful 5-13 Brooklyn Nets tonight at Barclays Center, CARMELO ANTHONY has frankly proclaimed his team the “laughingstocks of the NBA” further justifying STEPHEN A. SMITH’s claim that Melo will bolt New York for greener pastures once his contract is up.

“We are the laughingstock of the league,” Anthony told the NY Daily News when asked about tonight’s national televised game on TNT. “I mean, it’s nothing to hide. We are. … That’s why it’s a big game for us.

“Do I like being laughed at? Hell, no. I don’t like that feeling.”

Anthony may not like the prospect of staying a Knick either. During his ESPN radio show, Stephen A. revealed he has heard from reliable sources that Melo is done in New York.

“More than anything else I’ve heard, do you know what I’ve heard over the last 24 hours? Carmelo Anthony is gone. Ain’t no way in hell he’s staying here. I’m hearing this is it. He’s out. Unless the money disappears elsewhere, because he definitely wants to get paid, he’s not trying to stay here for this.”

It does figure that Carmelo would want to be out after all that has transpired this season with the Knicks thus far. After all, Melo has already stated that he wants to test the free agent market. He came to New York to win and win big. Not be the ringleader of a Knickerbocker circus. Unless the world completely rotates off its axis and turns everything totally opposite, winning a ‘chip with the Knicks doesn’t appear likely. Melo will have to go elsewhere.

That begs the question: Should the Knicks blow up the roster and seek a trade for Melo now?

There will be lots for Chuck, Kenny and Shaq to cover on TNT tonight.
