Carmelo Anthony

  1. Woodson would like to thank Knicks for not calling Jackson

    Jun 5, 2012, 4:02 PM EST

    Mike Woodson

    Mike Woodson is your coach of the New York Knicks. Mostly because Carmelo Anthony actually played hard for him, which led to a good record to close out the season. He got the team to play defense, so he gets another shot at this motley roster. But there was a point earlier in the season…

  2. Anthony Davis “long shot” to make U.S. Olympic Team

    Jun 4, 2012, 7:53 PM EST

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    Anthony Davis got the Golden Ticket, the invite to the ball — he got an invite to the USA Basketball Training Camp. He got in the door due to injuries — Dwight Howard is out, LaMarcus Aldridge may well be out and Team USA could use some size to deal with the Spanish front line.…

  3. Suns coach Gentry “feels good” about Suns keeping Nash

    May 31, 2012, 12:02 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash’s free agency is going to be interesting. Nobody would really begrudge him if he went and chased a ring, but if he’s going to do that in the most logical place, Miami, he’ll be doing it for the veteran minimum. He could go to the Knicks, Lakers, pretty much wherever he wants if…

  4. As expected, Knicks retain Woodson with multiyear contract

    May 25, 2012, 6:37 PM EST

    Mike Woodson

    I hope you like iso ‘Melo Knicks fans. The New York Knicks announced late Friday that coach Mike Woodson has been given a multiyear contract extension to continue as coach of the team. The details of the years and money are not yet known. This move was expected after Woodson turned the team around to…

  5. Kevin Durant, LeBron James head All-NBA Teams

    May 24, 2012, 2:39 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    Here’s the problem with nitpicking the All-NBA teams — there are no bad players on any of the first three. You can argue if you want (and as I would) that LaMarcus Aldridge deserves a spot on the third team more than Carmelo Anthony or Dirk Nowitzki, but that doesn’t make the guys on the…

  6. Does Steve Nash have any interest in playing for the Knicks?

    May 24, 2012, 1:37 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    In New York, it has just kind of assumed that Steve Nash wants to come there. Because New Yorkers assume everyone wants to come there, play there — that everyone wishes they were New Yorkers. Not the case. And it may not be the case with Steve Nash. In a twitter discussion yesterday, Jared Zwerling…

  7. Report: Deron Williams has Lakers on his list (behind Nets)

    May 23, 2012, 3:18 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    A Deron Williams and Kobe Bryant backcourt, with Andrew Bynum in the paint. That team could be very dangerous. Apparently, Deron Williams has thought about it. In an article where he says the Lakers and Magic need to do a Bynum for Dwight Howard swap, Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated drops some interesting knowledge about…

  8. Report: Knicks near long-term deal to keep Woodson as coach

    May 22, 2012, 10:51 AM EST

    New York Knicks coach Woodson reacts during Game 1 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference playoff against Miami Heat in Miami

    Looks like iso-Melo will be alive and well in New York. It’s not unexpected, but it appears the Knicks are nearing a long-term deal to keep Mike Woodson on as head coach, reports Al Iannazzone at Newsday. The Knicks officially are expected to remove the interim label from Mike’s title this week, according to multiple…

  9. Video: Kevin Durant hits the game-winning three to beat Lakers in Game 4

    May 20, 2012, 2:40 AM EST

    Durant-game-4

    As Russell Westbrook led the charge offensively for the Thunder in their Game 4 win over the Lakers — finishing with a brilliant 37 points on 15-of-26 shooting — Kevin Durant seemed pleased to let that happen. But once the Thunder had made it all the way back from a deficit that hung at around…

  10. PBT Extra: Talking Knicks’ future, Jordan or Kobe, and sushi

    May 10, 2012, 8:38 PM EST

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates after a three point shot late in the fourth quarter of the Knicks' win in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series against the Heat in New York

    When I opened up the doors looking for twitter questions for today’s PBT Extra, I knew that the Knicks were going to be the hot topic. So I discuss how I expect them to go after Steve Nash (which is iffy, both for fit and money issues) but not make many other big changes. We…

  11. Will twitter help drive J.R. Smith away from Knicks? No, but money might.

    May 10, 2012, 1:48 PM EST

    Knicks' Smith shoots during their win over the Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    We need to start this out with three background facts: 1. J.R. Smith is active on twitter (@TheRealJRSmith). 2. J.R. Smith has a $2.5 million option with the Knicks for next year that everyone knew he would not take — he was going to become a free agent and see what the market would offer.…

  12. Stoudemire wants Nash to join him in New York. Shocking.

    May 10, 2012, 10:58 AM EST

    Steve Nash Amare Stoudemire

    Amare Stoudemire had 7 shots in Game 5 against the Heat Thursday when the Knicks were eliminated from the playoffs. Carmelo Anthony had 31. Heck, Mike Bibby had 7 shots. So is it really a surprise that Stoudemire loves the idea of Steve Nash coming to play for the Knicks? Stoudemire has his best seasons…

  13. Don’t look for Knicks to make many offseason moves, just big one

    May 10, 2012, 9:09 AM EST

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Four

    Before the first jump ball tipped off the season on Christmas, this was the season everyone thought the Knicks would take a step forward. Maybe only to the second round of the playoffs, but they were going to be good. At least the third best team in the East. Instead, they had to fight their…

  14. Knicks return to iso ‘Melo, get knocked out of playoffs by Heat

    May 9, 2012, 10:51 PM EST

    New York Knicks' Anthony is guarded by Miami Heat's James during the fourth quarter in Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round basketball playoff series in Miami

    This year was supposed to be different for New York, and it certainly was unlike any season you can remember — Linsanity, injuries, Mike D’Antoni out and Mike Woodson in, a return to ‘Melo ball not seen since Denver. But it ended like every Knicks playoff series since 2000 — without the team advancing past…

  15. USA Basketball wants to know if Aldridge is in or out

    May 9, 2012, 5:10 PM EST

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Marcus  Camby

    LaMarcus Aldridge is on the list of players that USA Basketball is considering for the Olympics this summer — a big man with an outside shot is a valuable asset in the international game. Aldridge is also going to have surgery on his hip May 10. The short end of his recovery time from this…

  16. Can Knicks be more than one-and-done against Heat?

    May 9, 2012, 2:33 PM EST

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates in the win over Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    The last two games, the Heat did not bring their “A” game, and they still won one game against the Knicks and lost the other by two points. Conventional wisdom says Miami comes home Wednesday night, crank up the defensive pressure again and just run away and hide from the Knicks. That could happen. But…

  17. Reiterating what we already knew, Lin out for Heat series

    May 8, 2012, 3:01 PM EST

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    Yesterday, Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Jeremy Lin was very doubtful for Game 5 and it looked like some of the point guard duties for the Knicks would fall to Carmelo Anthony. And some to Mike Bibby. So of course, Woodson had to be asked about it again on Tuesday, and this time he tried…

  18. Report: Knicks working on contract extension for Woodson; coach denies

    May 8, 2012, 2:40 PM EST

    New York Knicks coach Woodson reacts during Game 1 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference playoff against Miami Heat in Miami

    UPDATE 2:40 pm: As should have been expected, Mike Woodson denied that these talks are going on. From ESPNNewYork.com: “That’s not true, not at all,” he said after practice Tuesday. As we have discussed before, what has been officially discussed and what has been actually discussed via second and third parties to smooth the way…

  19. Jeremy Lin not looking likely for Game 5, so Melo at point?

    May 7, 2012, 12:06 PM EST

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    With Baron Davis out, “Jeremy Lin Watch 2012” is on in full force for the Knicks as they head into Game 5 in Miami Wednesday. Lin has been working out, but when coach Mike Woodson spoke with reporters Monday it didn’t sound like Lin would play, but since his other option is Bibby Woodson was…

  20. Knicks get measure of redemption, knock off Heat in Game 5

    May 6, 2012, 8:08 PM EST

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates after a three point shot late in the fourth quarter of the Knicks' win in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series against the Heat in New York

    It doesn’t change the big picture – the Heat are still going to win this series and there are still questions about the construction and future of the Knicks. But for a day the Knicks got a measure of redemption — the Knicks made the big plays late, Carmelo Anthony outplayed LeBron James, the Knicks…

  21. Can New York salvage one game? Or is it time to focus on Knicks future?

    May 6, 2012, 12:26 PM EST

    Heat's James drives past  Knicks' Anthony in Game 3 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    The theory going into this series was that the Knicks would win a game or two simply because Carmelo Anthony and maybe J.R. Smith or Steve Novak would just get hot. But the Heat’s defense this series has doused any spark before it could catch fire. The result is the Heat have cruised to a…

  22. NBA Playoffs: Knicks compete early, but Heat roll late to take 3-0 series lead

    May 3, 2012, 11:10 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James

    The Heat took command of their first round playoff series with the Knicks, winning Game 3 in New York 87-70 to take a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Matt Moore and I discussed. Matt Moore: Ugly, ugly, grotesque basketball Thursday and it looked like the Knicks could do the improbable without Amar’e Stoudemire, relying…

  23. Anthony Davis, James Harden added to Team USA training camp

    May 3, 2012, 6:59 PM EST

    Kentucky Wildcats' Davis goes to the hoop against Kansas Jayhawks' Withey during the second half of their men's NCAA Final Four championship college basketball game in New Orleans

    Anthony Davis could go straight from winning a national championship with Kentucky to winning an Olympic gold medal with Team USA. Davis, along with Oklahoma City guard James Harden, has been added to the pool of potential candidates that could be selected to represent the United States in London, USA Basketball President Jerry Colangelo announced.…

  24. It’s official, Tyson Chandler named Defensive Player of Year

    May 2, 2012, 4:22 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    As we reported was coming, the Knicks Tyson Chandler is your defensive player of the year. The league made it official Wednesday afternoon. Chandler deserved the award, as the anchor that lifted the Knicks from one of the worst in the league last year to 5th in points allowed per possession (98.4 points per 100…

  25. Knicks better without Stoudemire? No, but different.

    May 2, 2012, 12:35 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Amare Stoudemire is out, having lost his fight with a fire extinguisher in Miami. Which has a number of Knicks faithful saying it is a blessing in disguise — Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony were not working well together. The Knicks played some of their best ball this season with a small-ball lineup where Anthony was…
