While they were often times at odds while both were with the New York Knicks, Carmelo Anthony and head coach Mike D’Antoni have mended their relationship as they embark on a new season with the Houston Rockets.

“Yeah, but you know, in that situation in New York was, like, it happened so fast. And the media blew that situation up. And nobody really know exactly what happened, if anything, between me and Mike D’Antoni,” Anthony said, during an interview with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols. “At the time, he was at a different point in his life, dealing with what he was dealing with, dealing with New York organization, that team.

I was at a different point in my career. So, I think now we got opportunity to just lay it all out on the table. You know, we talk a long time about kinda where we was as people — as a player, as a coach, at that point in time — the journey from then till now, where we at now and how we’re able to just kinda put that behind us.

And you know, he said something to me like, “You know, everybody deserves a second chance. I hope you give me a second chance.” And it was just good to hear kinda how energetic he was about having me here and being a part of this.”
