NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) – Carmelo Anthony thinks there’s something brewing in Madison Square Garden.

The Knicks’ big fish acquisition is eager to get a full season with Amar’e Stoudemire and Chauncey Billups under his belt.

“There’s a bull’s-eye on us and it’s getting bigger,” Anthony told the New York Post. “When you have a team with me, Amar’e and Chauncey Billups, that’s already a bull’s-eye, but now we’re going to have a year under us.”

Despite whisperings of Carmelo-Amar’e being a chemistry experiment gone bad, the superstar forward still loves playing in the Big Apple.

“This is where you want to succeed. It’s why Amar’e came here,” he said. “The bull’s-eye is going to be bigger next season and we’ll be ready for it.”

But there’s still a long way to go. The Knicks were 42-40 in 2010 and still haven’t won a playoff game since 2001.

“A lot of people thought, ‘They got Melo, they’re to win it,’ ” said Carmelo. “It doesn’t work that way. … We’re all committed to putting in the work to bring a title to New York.”

What’s your prediction for Carmelo and the Knicks in 2011-12? Let us know in the comments below…
