NEW YORK – Carmelo Anthony says he will defend his Olympic gold medal.
Anthony said during a U.S. national team scrimmage at Radio City Music Hall that he plans to play in 2012 in London.
"Of course," Anthony said in an interview on the court during a timeout. "I'm locked in. I'm committed."
Anthony helped the Americans win gold in Beijing, and also played in the 2004 Olympics. But the 2008 team is taking this summer off, leaving a young U.S. squad to try to win the world championships.
"I wish we were here playing on this court," Anthony said.
