Carmelo Anthony

  1. Tyson Chandler hosted art exhibit of his own works in NYC

    Sep 28, 2012, 8:18 AM EST

    tyson-chandler-jason-kidd-michael-strahan-exhibit

    Sometimes fans ask me why players want to go to Los Angeles or New York instead of fine cities like Houston or Milwaukee. It’s because of the opportunities. Like teaching Ellen to Dougie. It’s because if you are Tyson Chandler playing for the Knicks, you can host a charity exhibit of your own art work…

  2. Tyson Chandler wants Rasheed Wallace as part of Knicks

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:39 AM EST

    New York Knicks Tyson Chandler acknowledges the Dallas Mavericks fans after being presented with his championship ring before their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    When it was reported that the Knicks were taking a hard look at Rasheed Wallace, a lot of Knicks fans rolled their eyes. Knicks haters just laughed. But Tyson Chandler — the guy Wallace would back up — wants Sheed in New York. Look at what he told the New York Post. “He looked good,’’…

  3. The Inbounds: Ellis and Jennings and the cliff of compromise

    Sep 26, 2012, 5:57 PM EST

    Brandon Jennings

    Something’s gotta give in Milwaukee. (Check out our Bucks season preview here.) The Bucks traded their often-injured-but-still-awesome-when-he-played center Andrew Bogut last season to Golden State and took on Monta Ellis. Ellis was a promising young star. Then he was the guy who got injured in the moped accident. Then he was a terrific player again.…

  4. Nets’ Prokhorov talks learning from ‘Melo chase, Jay-Z

    Sep 26, 2012, 3:10 PM EST

    Brooklyn New Arena Basketball

    The Nets swung big and missed a couple times. They went hard after Carmelo Anthony, but he ended up in Manhattan. They wanted Dwight Howard — there were even tampering rumors — but the Magic would not play along so he ended up on the other coast. Nets majority owner Mikhail Prokhorov is not a…

  5. NBA Season Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:01 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova   goes up for a shot against Toronto Raptors' Alan Anderson during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee Wisconsin

    Last season: Abort the mission! New plan! New plan! The Bucks slammed on the parking brake, wrenched the wheel and Tokyo Drifted in a new direction last season, abandoning the “all defense all the time” team built around Andrew Bogut and giving p on the fleeting hope Bogut will ever, ever be healthy. They swapped…

  6. Doc Rivers doesn’t know what to expect from Darko, either

    Sep 26, 2012, 11:42 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    If Darko Milicic were taken, say, 25th in the 2003 NBA Draft, you would think the Celtics made a good signing bringing him in this summer — a serviceable big man to bring in off the bench, a guy who for 12 minutes a night will not suck and give guys like Kevin Garnett some…

  7. Does Miami’s championship prove that any system can work with the best talent?

    Sep 22, 2012, 5:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat player LeBron James hoists the championship trophy as team mate Dwyane Wade looks on stage at a rally in Miami, Florida

    This is something I just kind of stumbled on this morning while reading a post from earlier this month about how Pat Riley said about how smallball is “who (the Heat) are, now.” I, and others have written a lot about how the Heat’s lineup to finish the season, with Chris Bosh playing a combination…

  8. Report: Sixers tried to poach Nuggets’ GM Masai Ujiri

    Sep 21, 2012, 7:47 AM EST

    Masai Ujiri

    There were questions about Masai Ujiri as a general manager when the Nuggets hired him. He seemed a bit of a reach, someone who hadn’t had a lot of experience and that raised a few eyebrows around the league. But Ujiri has answered every question, looked smart in the role and reshaped a roster following…

  9. Walt Frazier says Knicks need ‘Melo to play like LeBron

    Sep 20, 2012, 11:53 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    The Knicks are going to be one of the more interesting stories in the NBA this season, and not just because they are in New York. As our own Matt Moore previewed, they have talent and they are going to be good, but the question remains about how well all the puzzle pieces fit together.…

  10. The Inbounds: The First Treatise on ISOMelo

    Sep 18, 2012, 2:15 PM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. INTRODUCTION: I’m not a big believer in the Knicks’ offense. I tend to like things like ball movement. And efficiency.…

  11. NBA Season Preview: New York Knicks

    Sep 18, 2012, 12:05 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

    This week begins PBT’s team-by-team season preview, going through all 30 squads. We are starting in the deep Atlantic Division that could well send four teams to the playoffs, and we will move West from there. Next up, your New York Knicks. Last season: Good God, where to begin. Uh, they beat Boston in their first…

  12. The Inbounds: Why players and their agents should consider a franchise’s spending history in free agency decisions

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Tyson Chandler react to a call in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden in Boston

    Two and a half weeks ago, Business Week released a study on the “smartest spenders in the NBA.” Kurt talked about the top and bottom ten here. It’s nothing shocking. The Lakers spend really well! The Wizards and Kings spend really badly! Turns out there’s a high correlation between “being a really good team” and…

  13. Dwight Howard admits he learned lessons of LeBron decision too late

    Sep 16, 2012, 5:01 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    There were lessons to be learned out of how LeBron James handled leaving Cleveland for the Miami Heat. A long list of what not to do. One was the pitfalls of hubris and that not everything can be spun positively. Another was that people are going to hate you for that kind of move, and…

  14. Shaq has a plan for the Knicks to have a better chance against Miami which will help them not at all

    Sep 15, 2012, 10:56 PM EST

    LeBron James Carmelo Anthony

    ESPN NY got Shaquille O’Neal to talk about the Knicks for the upcoming season, not exactly a difficult thing to do, on any topic at any time. And apparently they decided to ask him what they have to do to get past the Heat, or, what they need to do to beat the Heat if…

  15. Knicks hire Hakeem Olajuwon to work with big men

    Sep 13, 2012, 9:36 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Houston Rockets

    This summer, Amare Stoudemire spent a couple weeks in Houston working out with Hall of Fame player turned big man guru Hakeem Olajuwon, improving his post game. The Knicks figure if it’s good enough for Stoudemire, it’s good enough for all their big men — they have hired Olajuwon to come to New York and…

  16. Report: Matt Barnes nearing deal with Los Angeles Clippers

    Sep 12, 2012, 6:59 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    Well, at least Matt Barnes may not have to go shopping for a new house. Barnes spent the past couple seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers but he wasn’t likely to stick around with the team next season — his minutes dried up in the playoffs as his three-point shooting went cold, then he was…

  17. Tuesday And-1 links: Who are the best shooters never to win three-point contest?

    Sep 11, 2012, 8:31 PM EST

    Reggie Miller

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like Guy Fieri loves bacon and bad hair. • Who are the best three-point…

  18. J.R. Smith says Knicks expect “nothing less” than title

    Sep 11, 2012, 2:23 PM EST

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith attempts to dunk the ball in their NBA basketball game against the Portland Trail Blazers in New York

    What else do you expect him to say? You and I and even most Knicks fans realize they are not title contenders as presently constructed. How good they are this season depends on how Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire (and Tyson Chandler) mesh on offense. Because when all three were on the court together last…

  19. New high-tech data shows challenges Knicks, Carmelo face

    Aug 31, 2012, 8:30 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    I’m a big proponent of teams getting information — use traditional scouts, use advanced stats, both coaches and general managers should be getting as much data as they can to help inform their choices. But that information doesn’t always provide easy answers. Just ask the New York Knicks. One wealth of new information some teams…

  20. Who will be most drama-filled, soap opera team next season?

    Aug 28, 2012, 2:17 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v New York Knicks

    Where will the soap opera be next NBA season? Certainly the Lakers will be in the spotlight and every twitch will be magnified after the additions of Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. But it’s not the soap opera some expect — this is not going to be a Kobe vs. Shaq part deux. Dwight Howard…

  21. Carmelo Anthony says Knicks have no rivalry with Nets. Yet.

    Aug 27, 2012, 10:38 AM EST

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

    The New York Knicks will open the NBA season by heading over the bridge to Brooklyn and helping the Nets christen their new home. Knicks vs. Nets. Brooklyn vs. Manhattan. A battle for New York. A real rivalry… Not yet, says Carmelo Anthony. Speaking at a camp at St. Johns, the Knicks leader and gold…

  22. Jason Kidd wants to be like Steve Nash for Amar’e Stoudemire

    Aug 25, 2012, 5:00 PM EST

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin defends Dallas Mavericks point guard Jason Kidd in the second half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Jason Kidd has shifted his role in recent seasons. In Dallas, he went from the engine that ran the machine to a spot-up shooter who managed the office. It was a subtle but important shift and kept him capable as he began to get older. In New York, he’s expected to do much of the…

  23. The Inbounds: Houston, We Have A Solution

    Aug 24, 2012, 5:54 PM EST

    Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Maybe no team will have the kind of predicted-win variance from fans and experts this season than the Houston Rockets.…

  24. Carmelo sees himself as a wing, highlights Knicks challenge

    Aug 24, 2012, 1:40 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    The challenge is pretty clear in New York — when both Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire have played in a game the past two seasons, the Knicks are 31-40. The two stars have not meshed. Which brings us to ‘Melo speaking with Ian Begley of ESPNNewYork.com Friday and talking about the Knicks and his Olympic…

  25. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…
