New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony believes that the team is the laughing stock of the NBA.

Carmelo Anthony has described the New York Knicks as the "laughing stock of the league" ahead of their game against local rivals the Brooklyn Nets later today.

The Knicks have lost their last nine games in the NBA, leaving them bottom in the Atlantic Division.

The small forward told ESPN: "We are the laughing stock of the league right now. It's nothing to hide. We are. That's why it is a big game for us. Do I like being laughed at? Hell, no. I don't like that feeling."

Knicks head coach Mike Woodson added: "Well, I mean, expectations were high for both teams, and I somewhat agree. We both do stink. We have stunk it up in the early part of the season.

"I got a job to do here in New York, to try to get our team turned around and headed in the right direction. That's what I'm about."

The Knicks are currently ranked 14th out of the 15 Eastern Conference sides.
