Carmelo Anthony

  1. Tyson Chandler and the acceptance of limitations

    Dec 6, 2012, 5:44 PM EDT

    New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler reacts after drawing a foul and scoring a basket against the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler is talented, but he’s also ridiculously limited in terms of what he can actually do on a basketball court. Chandler is a true 7-footer with a strong build, but he possesses no post game whatsoever. There are no jump hooks, no drop steps, no up-and-under moves — nothing. In…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers show up for a half, that’s enough in New Orleans

    Dec 6, 2012, 3:29 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching Bilbo Baggins going on a drunken ‘Unexpected Journey’… Lakers 103, Hornets 87: On night where Kobe Bryant became only the 5th player in NBA history to hit the 30,000 career point plateau, the Lakers also got the win. And so…

  3. Carmelo says he ‘doesn’t know’ if he’ll play Thursday against Heat after getting stitches in Charlotte

    Dec 5, 2012, 11:14 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Charlotte Bobcats

    The Knicks beat the Bobcats in dramatic fashion on Wednesday, but Carmelo Anthony wasn’t on the court to see J.R. Smith’s heroics. Anthony was forced out of the game and into the locker room after suffering a laceration to a finger on his left hand, after diving into the stands to chase down a loose…

  4. Nets’ Gerald Wallace becomes second player fined for flopping

    Dec 5, 2012, 4:47 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James is defended by Brooklyn Nets' Gerald Wallace during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami,

    Got to say this for Gerald Wallace — he saves his flops for the biggest stars. Wallace became the second NBA player fined for flopping, getting to write a $5,000 check to the league for clearly trying to sell a call against LeBron James last Saturday. LeBron made contact with his right arm but then…

  5. Felton to play through bruised thumb; Kidd may return, too

    Dec 4, 2012, 3:03 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New York Knicks

    It’s not his shooting hand, but still it is a bone bruise in his hand near his thumb. I’ve never dribbled a ball with a bone bruise in my hand — or had a defensive player hit my hand in that situation while trying to swipe the ball — but I imagine it’s not a…

  6. Chandler says Olympics made ‘Melo better player this year

    Dec 3, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New York Knicks

    With three minutes left in the third quarter Sunday at Madison Square Garden Phoenix’s Shannon Brown leaked out in transition, brought in the long pass and was cruising in for a layup… When Carmelo Anthony came in with the chase down block. It wasn’t the athletic and emphatic LeBron James variety, but ‘Melo didn’t give…

  7. Stoudemire back by Christmas? Might not want to bet on it.

    Dec 3, 2012, 11:46 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Media Day Basketball

    A few days ago came the report that Amar’e Stoudemire new target was to be back on the court with the Knicks around Christmas. So, almost a month away still. But that may be too optimistic as well. Stoudemire isn’t saying more than two words to the media, but new leaked sources refuted the old…

  8. Suns’ turnovers, Knicks’ offensive rebounds earn New York win

    Dec 2, 2012, 3:04 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New York Knicks

    In the seminal NBA advanced stats book “Basketball on Paper,” Dean Oliver identifies his four factors in winning a basketball game. At the top of the list is the most obvious thing — shooting. It represents 40 percent of the outcome, Oliver said. The Suns shot better than the Knicks in a Sunday matinee at…

  9. Report: Knicks may get Christmas present of Stoudemire return

    Nov 30, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Stoudemire celebrates a basket against the Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA basketball game in New York

    The Knicks may be getting a huge Christmas present, and like parents everywhere Christmas Day coach Mike Woodson is going to be asking himself “where do I put this?” Amare Stoudemire is eyeing a return somewhere around Christmas, reports Marc Berman at the New York Post. Amar’e Stoudemire’s goal is to return around Christmas, with…

  10. Gerald Wallace gets flopping warning for move on ‘Melo

    Nov 29, 2012, 2:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    Yup, that’s a flop. Brooklyn’s Gerald Wallace was trying to get back into the play and harass Carmelo Anthony, Wallace made contact and Anthony used his elbow to create some space, but the Wallace sold it like he was going for an Oscar nomination. This is Wallace’s first warning. There is no fine, unless he…

  11. Report: Stoudemire willing to come off bench for Knicks

    Nov 29, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    The New York Knicks have the best offense in the NBA right now, scoring 111.5 points per 100 possessions — they are shooting the ball well and turning it over on fewer possessions than any other team in the Association. And they are doing it all with Carmelo Anthony playing the four. The power forward…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nets beat Celtics with TKO

    Nov 29, 2012, 3:07 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching a guy do a backflip on a surfboard…. Thunder 120, Rockets 98: Welcome back to Oklahoma City James Harden. After a warm reception from the crowd Harden was 3-of-16 shooting and struggled to defend Kevin Durant (who doesn’t?). And…

  13. Mike D’Antoni: “I shouldn’t have gone to New York”

    Nov 28, 2012, 4:32 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike D’Antoni — along with Steve Nash and the “seven seconds or less” Phoenix Suns — didn’t win a ring but they have changed the face of the NBA. Now you see the NBA champion Miami Heat going with a guy thought of as a forward at center (as do other teams), like the Suns…

  14. LeBron James back on top, King of NBA jersey sales again

    Nov 28, 2012, 10:06 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James gestures during a free throw in the second quarter of Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs against the Boston Celtics in Miami

    The deepest of LeBron James haters didn’t want to hear it but we were telling you this from the day after the decision — win a ring and the public perception of him would change. He’s got a ring, a gold medal from London, he was the NBA regular season and finals MVP — and…

  15. Knicks show their flaws, Nets get big win for franchise

    Nov 26, 2012, 11:49 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Anthony controls a rebound in front of Brooklyn Nets' Wallace during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Games in November don’t have a playoff atmosphere… usually. But every once in a while there is an exception. And this was it — Brooklyn’s first home game against the Knicks may have been in November but New York fans were treating this like a hockey playoff game. There was constant chanting like a Brazilian…

  16. Monday And-1 links: Andrew Bogut did not practice Monday

    Nov 26, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    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 more than shopaholics love Black Friday… • Andrew Bogut did not practice with the…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Celtics, Spurs need OT for wins

    Nov 26, 2012, 5:26 AM EDT

    Manu Ginobili; DeMar DeRozan;

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while out buying a $4.2 million gold Christmas tree… Spurs 111, Raptors 106 (2OT): Now this is a close game — at the end of every quarter and the first overtime this was a one-point or tied game. Toronto needs to…

  18. Lin’s Rockets put up 131 points in rout of Knicks

    Nov 24, 2012, 12:13 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Houston Rockets

    The Knicks were one of the pleasant surprises of the early season, getting out to an 8-1 start behind one of the league’s top defenses. But two games in a row they’ve had their opponent score at will — Dallas put up 114 in a win over New York on Wednesday, and the Rockets dropped…

  19. Jeremy Lin says he thinks ‘Melo, Stoudemire can coexist, too

    Nov 22, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    The Knicks are off to an impressive 8-2 start, their offense is clicking at the highest level in the league (111.7 points per 100 possessions), yet there is a big question looming over New York’s season — can Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire play well together? Stoudemire has been out all season following knee surgery,…

  20. Five early season NBA trends to be thankful for

    Nov 22, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Shane Battier

    We are 10 games or so into the NBA season and one thing is clear — this is fun. Not everything is fitting neatly into the preseason prediction boxes and that is the best part of being a sports fan. We at PBT are thankful for a lot of things. All of you who read…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers, Celtics both lose; it’s not the ‘80s anymore

    Our nightly recap of the games from around the NBA. Or, what you missed while going out tonight because you have to deal with your family tomorrow… Thunder 117, Clippers 111 (OT): Nobody stops Chris Paul, but the Thunder did a better job of slowing him down than anyone has this season and that’s how…

  22. Woodson not worried at all that ‘Melo, Amare can coexist

    Nov 21, 2012, 2:18 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks are 8-1 to start the season and it isn’t a fluke — this is a team that plays legitimately good defense and with Carmelo Anthony at the four (and Raymond Felton playing smartly at the point). But there remains a big question looming about this team — what happens when Amare Stoudemire returns?…

  23. Three Stars of the Night: Kobe, ‘Melo and Swaggy P

    Nov 21, 2012, 1:39 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    Only three games tonight, so how about we give the three stars to the key players from each of the three winning teams. Sounds good to me. Third Star: Kobe Bryant (25 points, 5 assists, +20) Kobe Bryant has spent almost his entire career in Phil Jackson’s triangle, the only times outside it were in…

  24. Knicks 102, Hornets 80: Carmelo Anthony breaks bad

    Nov 20, 2012, 11:04 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    Carmelo Anthony is on a sort of “basketball diet.” After years of not maximizing his full potential, Anthony has shown great restraint against the temptations of chucking this season, and as a result, he looks the best he ever has. He’s motivated. He has the desire to defend. He’s taking only what he needs and…
