Knicks F Carmelo Anthony would like to play 20 seasons in the NBA, he told reporters Wednesday.
"I would love to get 20 in, I could do 20,'' Anthony said. "I could do 20. I've done a great job taking care of my body. I'll continue doing that. No severe injuries. I can see myself going for 20.''
The 34-year-old is currently in his 14th season and his sixth with the Knicks. Anthony enters tonight's game against the Bucks 34 points shy of becoming the seventh Knick to reach 10,000 points. He's 30th on the all-time scoring list, 64 points away from 24,000.
Anthony has averaged at least 20.8 points per game in every season of his career, including a league-high and personal best, 28.9 in 2006-07 with the Nuggets. He's averaging 21.8 points per game this year, and 24.9 points in his career.
