Marcus Morris Sends Knicks-iest Tweet Ever Defending Carmelo Anthony and Team USA

Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics - Game Four

Marcus Morris has not played his first game as a Knick, but he has a lot of respect for a player who dominated at Madison Square Garden.

Morris took to Twitter on Thursday after Team USA's embarrassing back-to-back losses in the FIBA World Cup at the hands of France and Serbia. The forward claimed that the squad should have invited Carmelo Anthony to be on the roster.

While multiple NBA players were dropping out of the team, many began to suggest that Anthony, one of the most decorated international basketball stars of all time, would be a great veteran presence to mix with the youthful roster. The team rejected Anthony, and, as we're well aware, had a very disappointing run in China.

Throughout the process both Morris twins have been big supporters of Anthony as he battles to get back into the league. Anthony was quickly ousted from the Houston Rockets after an unsuccessful 10-game stint to start the season and has failed to latch on with another team.

The Morris twins are not alone in the Carmelo Anthony bandwagon. Many veterans share the same opinion and hopefully Melo can get himself a spot in the league again, possibly even with the Knicks.
