Carmelo Anthony curses back-to-back schedule on live television (VIDEO)

Jan 14, 2014, 9:56 AM EDT

Carmelo Anthony had just finished an exhausting overtime game against the Suns on Monday, one in which he played almost 46 minutes and finished with 29 points and 16 rebounds in leading his team to its fifth straight win.

You can imagine, then, how he might have felt near the end of his walk-off interview when it was mentioned that the Knicks would be playing on the road the very next night.

Anthony dropped the most benign of four-letter words on live television when the subject came up, before flashing his signature smile and walking away, ending the discussion with MSG Network’s Tina Cervasio.

“Alright, another game tomorrow, thank you, Carmelo,” Cervasio said.

“We’ve got another game tomorrow? S—,” was Anthony’s response.

No harm here, obviously. It was a light-hearted moment, and a rare one that felt real as opposed to the usually simple cliches we’re used to being fed.

      I’m pretty sure he was joking with her. He was tired and probably wasn’t consciously thinking of the fact they had to get on a plane and play again the next day. He probably meant it as “C’mon Tina, let me enjoy this for a few minutes” or “No ****, I know the schedule.”
