Carmelo Anthony said the Raymond Felton fiasco is beyond the state law – it’s Murphy’s Law.

Anthony, who will be deciding this summer whether he wants to stick around New York for the long haul, reacted for the first time to Felton’s felony gun charges and admitted it’s another distraction to this disappointing season. Felton was charged after his estranged wife’s lawyer brought the unlicensed firearm to police headquarters after the Dallas loss Monday night.

“It’s hard to reflect on it at this point,’’ Anthony said at the morning shootaround at AmericanAirlines Arena. “We’re rolling with the punches, man. I was laughing (because) somebody was just saying it’s Murphy’s Law. Everything that could go wrong for us is going wrong for us.’’

“All that said, we still got to play basketball,’’ he added. “Ray’s situation is his situation. He’s dealing with that. We support him. As far as this goes, we got to play basketball.’’

The Knicks, 15 games under .500, face the mighty Heat and a masked LeBron James Thursday night on national television with the club’s playoff hopes on the brink of extinction. Certainly Felton’s legal situation can’t bode well for Anthony’s impending free agency decision – perhaps another symbol that will lead him to bolt. Felton faces an uncertain future after this season as the Knicks starting point guard who probably lost any trade value he had left.

“It can definitely be a distraction if you allow it to be,’’ Anthony said. “I think the distraction is that you have to deal with it every day, asked about it and that’s a distraction. Coming here to the gym and arena, we need to come and leave all that stuff behind you for the two and half hours we’re in there.
