Carmelo Anthony

  1. 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…

  2. 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.…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. Jordan, Carmelo do some fundraising with President Obama

    Aug 22, 2012, 10:55 PM EST

    US-VOTE-2012-DEMOCRATIC CAMPAIGN

    Just like you and I, the people around the NBA care who is president. And while you can’t draw hard and fast lines, a quick look at who donated to whom shows players pretty much lean Democratic and front office/ownership leans Republican. Democrat Barack Obama used some of that player star power for a series…

  6. Video: ‘Melo checks out London, gets a call from Nas

    Aug 22, 2012, 1:37 PM EST

    US forward Carmelo Anthony celebrates af

    This is what it’s like if you’re Carmelo Anthony and want to go check out the tourist traps in London with your kid the day before the gold medal game. You do it is a sweet custom bus, cameras trail you everywhere, and then Nas calls and wants tickets. So, pretty much just like you…

  7. Cuban says the Mavericks almost traded for Kobe in 2007

    Aug 22, 2012, 8:38 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    The summer of 2007 was the summer of Kobe Bryant’s discontent. Since the Lakers had traded Shaquille O’Neal they had not put new pieces around Kobe that could help win a title, and Kobe let the world know. He asked for a trade, he pressured management, he ripped Andrew Bynum to random guys with a…

  8. Here are your top-10 NBA highest-paid players for 2012-13

    Aug 21, 2012, 3:50 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    The NBA salaries are basically set for next season, minus a few tweaks for late pickups and drops. While there are a few good players still out there as free agents, said players are discovering right now the market is pretty dry. I hope they all like the veteran minimum. So who is going to…

  9. Stoudemire says he is going to focus on defense. Again.

    Aug 21, 2012, 12:26 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire

    Under Mike Woodson last season (both as a head coach and “defensive coordinator” assistant) the Knicks were a good defensive team — fifth in the NBA at 98.4 points allowed per 100 possessions. That is why they made the playoffs with an offense that can sputter and has two stars that haven’t figured out how…

  10. Stoudemire willing to move to post… with Olajuwon’s help

    Aug 16, 2012, 12:29 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire

    Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony have yet to really click on the court, and until they do the ceiling for the Knicks is near their lofty goals. The numbers are clear — when both were on the floor together the Knicks were worse. Stoudemire was a pick-and-roll force while Anthony wants the offense to flow…

  11. Video: New ad shows James Harden is prepared for everything

    Aug 16, 2012, 10:56 AM EST

    Oklahoma Thunder's Westbrook and Harden stretch before practice for Game 3 of the NBA basketball finals in Miami

    This made he laugh. Funny stuff from Foot Locker, and great of James Harden to play along. You might like the Carmelo Anthony ad they did as well, but it lacks James Hardens’ beard. Hat tip to Darren Rovell of ESPN.

  12. Kobe says he is done, but Carmelo might be up for Rio 2016

    Aug 13, 2012, 11:11 AM EST

    US forward Carmelo Anthony celebrates af

    Kobe Bryant is telling anyone who asks, anyone who will listen really, that he is done with all things Olympics. There is no hesitation in comments to anyone. He’s got a second gold, he’s done. Which makes sense, he’ll be 37 come the Rio games and may not be playing in the NBA any more.…

  13. LeBron James and a golden transformation

    Aug 12, 2012, 12:45 PM EST

    Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Tyson Chandler

    A year ago, LeBron James didn’t exist. After mourning in his house over the loss of the NBA Finals for several weeks, dealing with the way his entire world had been turned upside down, how the public had revolted against him, James was simply absent. He rarely made appearances if ever at the NBA-NBPA meetings…

  14. USA vs. Spain for the gold: We know how this is going to end

    Aug 11, 2012, 2:21 PM EST

    US forward Carmelo Anthony (R) celebrate

    USA vs. Spain for the gold: We know how this is going to end. USA gold. Spain has some real talent — Pau Gasol and Marc Gasol team up to make what would be the best front line in the NBA (well, maybe not anymore) and they surround the brothers with smart, playmaking guards who…

  15. Great Argentina team loses final match against Team USA by 26 points, U.S. to play for gold Sunday

    Aug 10, 2012, 6:26 PM EST

    Argentinian guard Emanuel Ginobili (R) c

    Let’s take a moment and applaud this Argentina team. Lead by Manu Ginobili, Luis Scola, and Andres Nocioni (no, really), this Argentina has battled for one another for a decade. They have been the biggest thorn in the side of the U.S. in international play, and were what prompted widespread changes in the U.S. approach…

  16. Maybe now Dwight Howard can learn the value of silence

    Aug 10, 2012, 6:05 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    I better not wake up next week and see that Dwight Howard has taken a full-page ad in the Orlando Sentinel. I don’t want to see any grinning image of Howard in a Magic uniform, I don’t want to see any message of how much his time in Orlando meant to him, I don’t want…

  17. The Inbounds: Dwight Howard and the NBA’s arms race gone too far

    Aug 10, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard

    “Weapons are like money, no one knows the meaning of enough.” – Martin Amis In 2008, it was the Celtics getting both an aging Kevin Garnett and an aging Ray Allen. Then it was the Lakers getting Pau Gasol, commonly a sub-star due to his market at the time. Then came The Decision, Melodrama, the…

  18. Report: Carmelo Anthony playing through sore hamstring

    Aug 9, 2012, 12:35 PM EST

    Olympics Day 12 - Basketball

    It sure hasn’t shown much in the London Olympics — Carmelo Anthony is averaging 17.3 points a game on 57 percent shooting (53.1 percent from three), is chipping in 4.5 rebounds a game and is working hard off the ball. Plus, I could swear I saw him play defense. But, apparently he’s a little banged…

  19. USA starts pretty blah, Kobe and LeBron help them run away from Aussies late

    Aug 8, 2012, 7:48 PM EST

    Australian guard Matt Dellavedova (L) ch

    There are certain boxers and MMA fighters that nobody looks fighting good against. Even the fighters with all the style get sucked into an ugly grappling contest, nobody looks pretty in the ring/octagon against these guys. That is Australian basketball. For three quarters against Team USA the Aussies were physical, they mucked up the game,…

  20. Nicolas Batum punches Juan Carlos-Navarro in nuts

    Aug 8, 2012, 3:09 PM EST

    French forward Nicolas Batum (R) clashes

    Here is what you are going to be talking about the rest of the day. You can see it by following this link. Late in the fourth quarter of France’s medal round loss to Spain — when France had shot 0-11 and let the game get away from them — their frustration boiled over. Way…

  21. France’s ugly finish (with Batum punching Navarro in groin) costs them in loss to Spain

    Aug 8, 2012, 2:02 PM EST

    Olympics Day 12 - Basketball

    After three quarters, this was shaping up to be a classic. And with less than seven minutes to go France led 57-54. Then the wheels came off for France. Actually, that’s too kind. France crashed and burned. They scored 6 points total in the fourth quarter and went scoreless for more than seven minutes. And…

  22. USA shouldn’t have much trouble with Australia to open medal round

    Aug 8, 2012, 8:01 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Russell Westbrook,  Chris Paul

    The medal round. This is what we’ve been waiting for. When things get serious. Win and advance, lose and you go home. Three wins and you get a gold. The pressure is on now. Except, for the USA the first game of the medal round should be their easiest game in a week. The USA,…

  23. Pau Gasol on verge of tying legendary Olympics scoring record

    Aug 7, 2012, 6:35 PM EST

    Pau Gasol

    When Brazilian basketball legend turned broadcaster Oscar Schmidt showed up for a Team USA practice, students of the game like Carmelo Anthony went up to him and asked if they could take a picture with him. Schmidt is an international legend. And he was the leading scorer in the Olympics in 1988, 1992 (more points…

  24. Michael Jordan to headline Obama re-election hoops fundraiser

    Aug 7, 2012, 4:43 PM EST

    Tahoe Celebs Golf

    Barack Obama had Michael Jordan’s back — the president said the current Olympic team couldn’t touch the original Dream Team. Now, Jordan has Obama’s back. Jordan will headline a celebrity hoops fundraising event with the money going to Obama’s re-election campaign, according to Buzzfeed Sports (via Ball Don’t Lie). The classic was originally scheduled for…

  25. Carmelo got punched in the, um, groin by Argentina. But we’ve seen worse.

    Aug 7, 2012, 1:57 PM EST

    Anthony of the U.S. grimaces on the court after being fouled during match against Argentina at their men's preliminary round Group A basketball match at the Basketball Arena during the London 2012 Olympic Games

    Things got a little testy… wait, poor choice of words. Things got a little chippy between the USA and Argentina at the end of the third quarter as the USA was running away with Monday’s Olympic pool play contest. (Yes, that’s better phrasing.) Carmelo Anthony was going up with a three as the quarter ended…
