Carmelo Anthony

    Mar 16, 2012, 10:13 PM EST

    Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard and Miami Heat forward LeBron James talk during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Orlando

    After a great deal of deliberation, Dwight Howard decided to opt-in for the additional year on his contract, staying in Orlando for at least one more season. It obviously was a difficult decision, evidenced by the fact that Howard changed his mind seemingly a thousand times before signing the necessary paperwork to stay with Magic.…

  2. “Linsanity” is dead. Welcome to Woodson’s Knicks.

    Mar 16, 2012, 10:32 AM EST

    Jeremy Lin, Mike Woodson

    When Mike Woodson was the head coach of the Atlanta Hawks, his offense was nicknamed “iso Joe” for all the times Joe Johnson was given the ball in isolation. Josh Smith got to shoot a lot of jumpers that way, too. That is music to Carmelo Anthony’s ears. Mike Woodson knows what side his bread…

    What you missed while waiting for Dwight Howard to change his mind again…. Bulls 106, Heat 102: This just shows the different mentalities of these two teams. No Derrick Rose, no Richard Hamilton and yet the Bulls just brought it with fantastic energy. They defended, guys like John Lucas III (24 points) and Jimmy Butler…

  4. Another reversal: Dwight Howard says he will opt-in with Magic

    Mar 15, 2012, 7:35 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    Orlando called Dwight Howard’s bluff — when he refused Wednesday afternoon to waive his Early Termination option (ETO, the thing that lets him opt out of his contract next summer) the Magic had enough of Howard’s “take a chance on me” game and worked the phones hard to trade him. Orlando was done. But Howard…

  5. While team shops him, Dwight Howard tells Magic “take a chance” on me

    Mar 15, 2012, 1:32 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    It’s actions, not words that matter. Dwight Howard told the Magic Wednesday night to take a chance on him again, like they did when he was 18. Trust him. “They took a chance on me at 18,” Howard said (transcribed from the Orlando Sentinel’s postgame video). “And what did I do? I gave them everything…

    Mar 14, 2012, 8:54 PM EST

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Dwight Howard has handled his exit from Orlando about as poorly as one person can. He has made LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony look smooth. And it will be an exit from Orlando now. You can bet after today the Magic are burning up the phones in an effort to get a deal done before…

    Mar 14, 2012, 6:13 PM EST

    Knicks' Lin walks up-court during game against Kings in New York's Madison Square Garden

    I don’t know what the Knicks are going to do next because I’d have an easier time guessing what the Kardashian sisters are thinking than reading James Dolan’s mind. In the wake of Mike D’Antoni’s sudden firing/resignation/whatever Wednesday there are a lot questions about what is next and who will be the Knicks coach next…

  9. Report: D’Antoni wanted to trade ‘Melo for Deron Williams

    Mar 14, 2012, 5:04 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    We know that now-former New York Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni and team owner James Dolan met Wednesday morning and came out of that meeting deciding to resign because of differences in how they saw the future of the organization. Those differences were major — D’Antoni wanted to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Nets for Deron…

  10. Mike D’Antoni resigns as coach of New York Knicks

    Mar 14, 2012, 2:21 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni

    Something had to give with the Knicks, and it was coach Mike D’Antoni. He has resigned as coach of the New York Knicks, something first reported  by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo and since confirmed by multiple sources. The two sides described a conflicting vision of the future of the franchise and made a mutual decision…

  11. Report: Magic decide to trade Howard if he doesn’t commit

    Mar 14, 2012, 2:06 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Maybe Orlando Magic owner Rich DeVos is realizing what everyone else has understood for a while — that no matter what he said, Dwight Howard was out of there this summer. And the Magic don’t want to come up empty handed when that happens. Orlando wants Howard to, at the very least, opt in for…

  12. Anthony denies he wants to be traded from Knicks; Jerry Sloan as coach?

    Mar 14, 2012, 12:53 PM EST

    Brandon Bass, Carmelo Anthony

    As you knew was coming, Carmelo Anthony and his camp are denying the report that he want to be traded from the Knicks. And while he’s at it ‘Melo wants you to know he is all good with Mike D’Antoni. Here is the quote, via the Associated Press. But Anthony calls the report (he wanted…

  13. D’Antoni on way out? Trade ‘Melo? Welcome to Knicks implosion.

    Mar 14, 2012, 10:11 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Washington Wizards

    It was just more than a year ago, near the trade deadline, when the Knicks — specifically owner James Dolan — decided to trade away key players who kind of fit Mike D’Antoni’s offensive system to get Carmelo Anthony immediately. Couldn’t wait until the off-season, it had to happen right then. Following that up, last…

  14. Dwight Howard says he wants to stay, finish season with Magic

    Mar 13, 2012, 11:55 PM EST

    Do the Orlando Magic feel like gambling? After the Orlando Magic came up with a dramatic 104-98 win over the Miami Heat, Dwight Howard said he wants to play the rest of the season with Orlando. Not sign an extension and stay — he wants the Orlando Magic to “roll the dice” on him. Here…

  15. Dwight Howard update: Magic want to talk to Lakers, Howard wants Nets

    Mar 13, 2012, 4:26 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    There are two sides to where things stand with Dwight Howard less than 48 hours before the NBA trade deadline. One is what the Magic are doing and thinking. The other is what Howard wants. What the Magic are doing is having GM Otis Smith keep fielding offers and look for deals while ownership decides…

  16. Report: Like Knicks fans, ‘Melo unhappy with D’Antoni

    Mar 13, 2012, 12:23 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, Jeremy Lin, Mike D'Antoni

    The scapegoats of the week in New York are Carmelo Anthony and Mike D’Antoni — clearly they are the reasons the Knicks have lost six in a row. And now, we bring you the next phase of the Knicks implosion — infighting and blaming the coach. From Marc Berman of the New York Post. There…

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 1

    All you fans trying to dream up trade scenarios where your team can land a star point guard by just trading away a rack of shootaround basketballs — or Luke Walton — we have another name to consider. Brandon Jennings. They are rethinking everything in Milwaukee and injured center Andrew Bogut was already on the…

    Mar 12, 2012, 1:05 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Another day, another report that the Orlando Magic are leaning heavily toward keeping Dwight Howard in their camp and trying to convince him to stay.

    Mar 11, 2012, 5:03 PM EST

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The New York Knicks lost their fifth straight Sunday, falling 106-94 to the Philadelphia Sixers in a game where the Sixers largely toyed with the Knicks for the fourth quarter. It’s not a surprise, downing sub-.500 teams by double-digits is kind of what Philly does this season. That’s their bread and butter. But of course,…

    Mar 9, 2012, 12:58 PM EST

    Magic's Howard meditates just before the tip-off of their NBA basketball game with the New York Knicks in New York

    We all keep waiting for some kind of definitive decision from the Orlando Magic — are they going to keep or trade Dwight Howard? Maybe the reason we don’t have that answer is that the Magic are still divided on what they want to do, or what kind of trade package they want back. That’s…
