Carmelo Anthony has grown in so many ways as a player and as a leader. All you have to do is talk to veterans Marcus Camby and Jason Kidd to understand how far Melo has come — and just how far he can take the Knicks this season.
“I think each year he has actually been getting better and better as a player, but also as a person,’’ Camby told The Post last night on yet another night Anthony led the Knicks in scoring with 25 points in a 99-89 win over the Magic at Amway Center to push the Knicks to 5-0. “He’s ready to lead us.’’
“I think he can lead us to a championship,’’ Camby said. “He’s seen a lot of his peers in his draft class win one and that is driving him. He got his one in college, but he wants to win one in the NBA. He wants to win one for the city; we all want to win one for New York City.’’
