Carmelo Anthony

  1. Reaction from ‘Melo, Lakers players to D’Antoni hiring

    Nov 12, 2012, 4:57 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    And the reactions are pouring in to the Lakers hiring of Mike D’Antoni… except from Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant. You know, the two guys you most want to hear from. Neither of them spoke to the media today. Nash because he got treatment on his injured leg and left the Lakers facilities before media…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: The Knicks are on top? The Knicks are on top.

    Nov 12, 2012, 4:12 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Carmelo Anthony’s Knicks on top of the PBT Power Rankings? Well, that’s it, you need to stock up on canned goods, bottles of water and flashlight batteries because the end is neigh. But no denying, they have earned it the past two weeks. 1. Knicks (4-0, last week ranked No. 3). Through a couple weeks,…

  3. Phil Jackson out of picture, Mike D’Antoni signs to be Lakers new coach

    Nov 12, 2012, 3:47 AM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    At Staples Center Sunday night, it felt around the Lakers and their fans that anyone not named Phil Jackson as the next coach was going to be the consolation prize. If so, this is a pretty darn good one. Mike D’Antoni has signed a contract and has been announced as the Lakers new coach with…

  4. Three Stars of the Night: The big boys showed up on Friday

    Nov 10, 2012, 3:17 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Nights like this have happened before and will happen again — as much we love the stories of the rookies finding themselves or the under-appreciated player having a huge night, the NBA’s superstars are the NBA’s superstars for a reason. Nike pays them to sell shoes for a reason. The NBA’s stars showed up in…

    US forward Carmelo Anthony celebrates af

    The NBA mandates a certain amount of community involvement from its teams and players through the league’s NBA Cares program. It’s a solid way for the athletes to give back to communities in need, without having to go through the trouble to organize these efforts themselves. It’s even better when a player, especially a superstar…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs, Knicks remain undefeated

    Nov 6, 2012, 4:42 AM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace, Tyson Chandler

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while you were finding out where Superman’s home planet Krypton actually was…. Spurs 101, Pacers 79: Don’t look now, but the Spurs are defending again this year. Which is how they crushed the Pacers. We broke it down.…

  7. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs and Knicks movin’ on up

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    The first few power rankings of the year show the most volatility — we don’t have established patterns for teams and so if someone gets hot or cold for a few games there is no context yet to put that in. It’s Small Sample Size Theatre. The Magic are 2-0 but I don’t think they…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers keep it simple and win. Finally.

    Nov 5, 2012, 2:55 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Jason Maxiell

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while thinking that a 14-year-old is a whole lot better at golf than you…. Lakers 108, Pistons 79: The Lakers had a 23-5 run in the second half of the first quarter, and that was pretty much it…

  9. Three Stars of the Night: Big stars earn the stars on Sunday

    Nov 5, 2012, 1:54 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Jonas Jerebko

    We at PBT love the underdogs, the little guys, the players who make the contributions you don’t as quickly notice. But the NBA’s biggest stars are stars for a reason. And Sunday it was some of the NBA’s biggest names showing you why they get paid the big bucks. Third Star: Kevin Martin, 28 points…

  10. Knicks continue impressive start by taking care of Sixers

    Nov 4, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Thaddeus Young

    A tip-off time of 12 noon in the NBA can often be trouble for both teams. It’s a quirk in the schedule for a league whose players are used to gearing up to perform at their peak sometime after 7:30 p.m., so the broken routine can result in some rough basketball during those early afternoon…

  11. Knicks play like adults, spank the Heat in home opener

    Nov 2, 2012, 11:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The advanced age of the Knicks has been a source of comedy this offseason, but the Miami Heat probably don’t think the Knicks are much of a joke after getting blown out, 104-84, at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks may be short on speed and athleticism with their role players, but it’s evident already that…

  12. Fun matchups for Friday night: LeBron vs. ‘Melo at power forward

    Nov 1, 2012, 1:58 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James

    We’ve pretty much worn out the discussion of the Miami Heat going small with LeBron James at the four. The much more interesting discussion of late has been injuries forcing Mike Woodson to take the Knicks in a direction they were reluctant to go — small with Carmelo Anthony at the four. Now, what do…

  13. Knicks at Nets season opener will be postponed, despite earlier reports

    Oct 31, 2012, 12:42 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    UPDATE #3, 2:42 pm: Finally the NBA has come to its senses on this. The league has decided to postpone this game to a future date, one where the subway service is up and running and people can make it to the game. While the arena is open and available fans would have struggled to…

  14. Knicks confirm Stoudemire to have knee scoped, out 6-8 weeks

    Oct 30, 2012, 5:54 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    Reports started swirling on Monday that Amare Stoudemire was going to be out longer than first reported, now 6-8 weeks, because his knee was still giving him problems. And nobody was really all that shocked. On Tuesday the Knicks confirmed the situation — Stoudemire is going to have arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and…

  15. A guide for which teams to watch

    Oct 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Our ideas of fun may be completely different. Personally, I like to pretend I’m playing Supermarket Sweep in the grocery store, but you may like going out on “dates” or “talking to actual people.” With that said, I can’t in good faith tell you which teams will be fun this year. That’s a decision for…

  16. Report: Amar’e Stoudemire possibly out 6-8 weeks

    Oct 29, 2012, 10:57 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    When one door closes, another one opens. Now, Knicks big men, don’t everybody clutch their lower back and slowly lurch towards the door at the same time. This is an opportunity for a player to establish that he’s truly an offensive savant, and as much fun as a Rasheed Wallace revival would be, this is…

  17. PBT Power Rankings: Heat start season on top, Bobcats in cellar

    Oct 29, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh,Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    It’s that time of year — the PBT’s NBA Power Rankings are back. Power Rankings before a single game is played are admittedly a bit silly, but then again the NBA has playoffs to determine which team is best so really all power rankings are silly and just for the entertainment value. It would take…

  18. Deron Williams says Knicks better with Felton than Lin

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:24 PM EDT

    Nets Williams drives to the basket past Knicks Lin during their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Jeremy Lin is gone from New York, which led to a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth among some Knicks fans. He was their savior midseason, the guy who helped turn the team’s season around, a guy the fans related to and loved and now he is in Houston. Deron Williams thinks the Knicks…

  19. Camby still questionable for opener, Knicks still banged up

    Oct 29, 2012, 9:41 AM EDT

    Knicks Media Day Basketball

    The Knicks don’t start the season until Thursday, and the good news is they only have to travel to Brooklyn for the game. Although hurricane Sandy may make that a little more difficult than it should be. The question hanging over the Knicks is if Marcus Camby will be ready to play. He has been…

  20. Video: Daryl Morey talks Rockets’ trade for James Harden

    Oct 28, 2012, 5:31 PM EDT

    daryl-morey-rockets

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey has been on a quest for an elite player for more than a year — Pau Gasol (part of the Chris Paul trade David Stern blew up), Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony — and he thinks he finally has one in James Harden. Morey was on Comcast SportsNet Houston to talk about…

  21. Injuries may force Knicks to turn to Rasheed Wallace

    Oct 27, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    rasheed wallace knicks

    When news broke that Amar’e Stoudemire might be out longer than expected with a left knee injury, Rasheed Wallace being drafted into action before he appears ready for it certainly was a possibility. With Stoudemire and Marcus Camby definitely out, and Tyson Chandler possibly out for opening night, the Knicks simply don’t have very many…

  22. Amar’e Stoudemire seeks second opinion on knee, may miss first month of the season

    Oct 26, 2012, 8:59 PM EDT

    Tristan Thompson, Amare Stoudemire

    When the news broke that Amar’e Stoudemire was experiencing an issue with his left knee, it was supposed to be relatively minor. At the time, it was expected that he’d miss the Knicks season opener, along with maybe another game or two beyond that. It now appears that he’ll be out a little longer, according…

  23. Tyson Chandler isn’t buying ‘Melo scoring less this season

    Oct 26, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Alan Anderson, Carmelo Anthony,

    Carmelo Anthony is not just going to be a scorer anymore. He’s changed. It’s about team and trust and distributing the rock. That’s what he’s saying, anyway. “I’m done trying to score 35, 40 points to win the basketball game. I don’t want that role anymore” You buying that? Tyson Chandler isn’t. From the Wall…

  24. Knicks Tyson Chandler injures knee, leaves arena on crutches

    Oct 24, 2012, 10:55 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler

    UPDATE 10:55 pm: This isn’t good (and why you should take what a team tells you about injuries with the salt mentioned below). Tyson Chandler left the arena on crutches and thinks he has a sprained knee, tweets Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. An MRI on Thursday will determine the extent of…

    Nets court Barclay Center

    There is a lot of buzz around the Nets this season — they have moved to a new building in Brooklyn and will be the NBA’s most improved team this season. Of course, they were so bad last season that a dramatic improvement will not take them as far as some Nets fans hope, but…
