Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has weighed in on the debate that ensued after Boston Globe NBA reporter Gary Washburn was the only voter to cast his NBA MVP first-place vote for Anthony instead of LeBron James.

“As far as the guy in Boston, I don’t know why he catches so much flak for that,” Anthony said after Game 2 of the Knicks-Pacers series Tuesday in New York. “He has the right to vote for whoever he want. LeBron won the MVP. Why is everybody so mad that he didn’t win it unanimously? ... Thank you.”

James was first on 120 of the 121 ballots in the NBA MVP election.

Watch Washburn's explanation of his vote below.
