On Monday afternoon, the New York Knicks suffered yet another devastating defeat -- this time at the hands of the Atlanta Hawks, 108-107.

Down two with less than 30 seconds, Hawks point guard Dennis Schroder converted an ice-cold three-pointer to put Atlanta up one:

When the Knicks were given their opportunity to respond and win the game in the final moments, they failed -- once again.

In the locker room following the game, Carmelo Anthony was asked to comment on his no-trade clause, his current mindset and his allegiance to the Knicks franchise.

Anthony's response, as transcribed by ESPN's Ian Begley:

"I think I've proven that. I don't have to speak on that. I think I've proven that over the years day in and day out."

“It is what it is. … Regardless of what happens when we win, it’s us. When we lose, it’s me.”
