MELO SET TO SHUT IT DOWN AFTER ALL-STAR

Carmelo Anthony says it’s “very likely” he will shut it down after the All-Star Game.

The Knicks forward told ESPN that he plans to play in Sunday’s game at Madison Square Garden, “even if it’s just a few minutes” — but admitted it’s likely he will be done playing after that.

“It’s very likely. It’s very likely. Now I’ve got to start thinking about the future,” Anthony told Marc Stein, Marc Kestecher and P.J. Carlesimo in an interview on ESPN Radio. “This season is this season. So I really want to just sit down with my team and sit down with the proper people to just kind of plan this thing out and see exactly what I have to do to get done and just to fix it.”

The Knicks’ leading scorer has been dealing with soreness in his left knee for months, and aggravated it during Monday’s loss to the Miami Heat.

Despite the injury, he plans to appear in Sunday’s All-Star Game to honor the fans who voted him in as an Eastern Conference starter.

“Even if I come out and just play a couple minutes and just wave,” Anthony said. “I don’t think the fans deserve [seeing me miss the game]. They voted me in for a reason, so at least I can show them that I appreciate that by just participating in the game.”
