Thunder F Carmelo Anthony isn't worried about hearing boos from Knicks fans in his return to Madison Square Garden in December.
After defeating the Knicks in his season debut with the Thunder, Anthony thinks his first game back in The Garden will be a home game despite the jersey he wears
"It's too far away to think about yet, but it will be a home game for me," Anthony told The Post's Marc Berman. "(I have) a good feeling. I have a good feel about that one. Coming back and playing in front of those fans. I feel good about that."
Instead of hearing the fans' distain, Melo hopes to hear cheers.
"I hope so," Anthony said. "I don't see why not. We'll see when that time comes. I'm not worried about how they take (the tweet). I said what I said and that's it."
Thunder head coach Billy Donavan thinks his first game back in New York will be more of an event than his season opener.
"I always felt when you play against your former team, it's always more emotional when you have to go back to the place that you played," Donavan said. "I think (Thursday night) was more about his first game with the Thunder, opening night."
Anthony has been enjoying his time in Oklahoma City despite it being a much smaller market than New York City. He says he has known hotspots in OKC before joining the Thunder. He also had Knicks F Lance Thomas over his place before the game Thursday.
"It's been an easy transition for me," Anthony said.
The Thunder travel to Madison Square Garden on Dec. 16.
