From the New York Times’ Howard Beck, via Steve Adamak:

Report from @bergenadamek at the Garden: Carmelo is back in the lineup tonight vs. Detroit.

Anthony’s struggles this season have been well-documented: he is currently behind only LeBron James and Kobe Bryant in usage rate, but he’s shooting just 39.4% from the floor and 30.3% from beyond the arc, he’s been a ball-stopper, and the Knicks are currently one of the worst offensive teams in the league. Anthony has been banged-up all season, which may account for his struggles — if he’s on the floor for the Knicks, one would hope that he’s either healthy enough to score the ball the way he has throughout the vast majority of his career or ready to stop firing up shots that don’t have much of a chance of going in.

    How convienient, he leaves for the road game against the Heat, but comes back for a home game against the Pistons. Calculated much?

    Did the Knicks really believe that getting two # 2 guys was going to make them champs? Melo & Stoud are great # 2′s, but they can’t carry a team.

    They would be better off now if they had not traded for Melo. He seems to be more interested in walking the red carpet.
