Carmelo Anthony

  1. ‘Sheed talks about why he chose Knicks (try Mike Woodson)

    Oct 5, 2012, 9:50 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Rasheed Wallace is back in the NBA. Which should be a good test of the NBA’s technical policy if nothing else. He’s had a few other chances to return from retirement the past two years, a number of teams including the Celtics (where he last played) have approached him. He said no. He didn’t want…

  2. Thursday And-1 link: News, notes from around NBA camps

    Oct 4, 2012, 9:36 PM EDT

    Lakers new guard Steve Nash of Canada smiles as he walks past Kobe Bryant during NBA media day for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in Los Angeles

    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. • It was news when Kobe Bryant said this was the most talented Lakers…

  3. Knicks, Pistons to play regular season game in London

    Oct 4, 2012, 10:50 AM EDT

    london

    How about this for a road trip? The New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons are traveling to London for a regular season game Jan. 17, the league confirmed Thursday. The game will be a homecoming to the O2 Arena for the Knicks Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler, who won gold there with Team USA this…

  4. Carmelo Anthony promises less scoring, to be team player

    Oct 2, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Media Day Basketball

    Carmelo Anthony is at least saying the right things. The Knicks need to get Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire meshing together on offense. You know it. I know it. There are people in Thailand who know it. Mike Woodson knows it too, but to keep his job as Knicks coach he had to have ‘Melo…

  5. Cousins calls USA Select Team experience “political”

    Oct 1, 2012, 5:31 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins had a bumpy time as a member of the USA Select Team this summer, playing against the London Olympians during training camp. He got called out publicly by USA basketball president Jerry Colangelo for being too physical in scrimmages against the stars. I’ll add that I was in Vegas and Colangelo wasn’t the…

  6. Chauncey Billups says he’ll be back before the first of the year

    Sep 29, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    Say what you want about Chauncey Billups, but do not question the man’s dedication. The Clippers guard immediately got word out after his devastating Achilles injury that he would not be retiring. He’s kept that word up the entire way. He’s vowed to return this season. And at media day for the Clippers Friday, Billups…

  7. Report: Rasheed Wallace will sign with Knicks or nobody

    Sep 28, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    UPDATE 5:32 pm: Rasheed Wallace’s agent spoke with ESPNNewYork.com and said that other teams should not get their hopes up about Sheed — he will play for the Knicks or nobody. “That’s my understanding, based on his relationship with Coach (Mike) Woodson,” Strickland said by phone. A team source said Wallace has not yet signed…

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

    Sep 28, 2012, 8:18 AM EDT

    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…

  9. Tyson Chandler wants Rasheed Wallace as part of Knicks

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:39 AM EDT

    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,’’…

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

    Sep 26, 2012, 5:57 PM EDT

    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.…

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

    Sep 26, 2012, 3:10 PM EDT

    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…

  12. NBA Season Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 26, 2012, 11:42 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 22, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 21, 2012, 7:47 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 20, 2012, 11:53 AM EDT

    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.…

  17. The Inbounds: The First Treatise on ISOMelo

    Sep 18, 2012, 2:15 PM EDT

    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.…

  18. NBA Season Preview: New York Knicks

    Sep 18, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 16, 2012, 5:01 PM EDT

    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…

  21. 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 EDT

    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…

  22. Knicks hire Hakeem Olajuwon to work with big men

    Sep 13, 2012, 9:36 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 12, 2012, 6:59 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 11, 2012, 2:23 PM EDT

    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…
