Carmelo Anthony

  1. ‘Melo says Knicks defensive schemes holding team back. Riiiight.

    Mar 17, 2011, 1:40 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Nobody is question that the Knicks defense has struggled since the trade. Not even the Knicks. But Carmelo Anthony has figured out the problem — it’s the coach’s fault. Well, that’s not exactly what he told the New York Post (via Slam), he blamed the…

  2. PBT St. Patrick’s Day/Thursday morning one liners

    Mar 17, 2011, 11:10 AM EDT

    rick adelman

    Rick Adelman is likely leaving the Rockets at the end of the season, and everybody is good with that. Elton Brand tries to be understanding, but he didn’t really like Jalen Rose’s comments about Duke much either. Great name for these Knicks: They are in the Melozoic era. Also fantastic breakdown of the mixed results…

  3. New York’s pick-up game defense neutralizes improved offense

    Mar 16, 2011, 11:50 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Win three in a row, lose three in a row. Beat the Heat, get swept on a home-and-home by the Pacers. Getting a read on the New York Knicks with Carmelo Anthony is hard because they are so erratic. They are 6-6 since the trade drama ended and have looked both like the team nobody…

  4. Denver’s defense is much better, but that’s not all about ‘Melo

    Mar 15, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Denver Nuggets

    The numbers do not lie. It’s a small sample size, but the trend is unmistakable — Denver is a much better defensive team without Carmelo Anthony. They have given up 99.3 points per 100 possessions in the 10 games he has been gone, a number that would be the best in the league if spread…

  5. ‘Melo wants you to know he is too a team player

    Mar 15, 2011, 3:44 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Dallas Mavericks

    It’s been pretty hard to miss the glee coming out of the Rocky Mountains — Denver is 8-2 since the Carmelo Anthony trade and they are all too happy to tell you about how they are more of a team, how they are playing defense, how the sun shine feels warmer and how the bluebird…

  6. Nene says he wants to stay a Nugget forever. If they pay up.

    Mar 15, 2011, 2:35 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    After playing most of the season under the cloud of the Carmelo Anthony trade situation, the sun has broken through in Denver. And like flowers everywhere, the Nuggets are blooming in the spring. Their defense is better. Their offense is better. Their energy is better. They are winning. It’s a fun place to play. Nene…

  7. Nuggets Raymond Felton: “We’re a better team (than the Knicks)”

    Mar 14, 2011, 1:36 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    The Denver Nuggets have gone from being the team that concerned first-round playoff opponents because they had shot makers in Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups to a team that concerns first-round playoff opponents because they play good defense. These Nuggets are a lot different than the old Nuggets (and by old we mean a month…

  8. Improved Knicks no match for elite Mavericks

    Mar 11, 2011, 1:29 AM EDT

    carmelo-knicks-mavericks

    The Knicks have been playing winning basketball lately, but the set of circumstances they faced heading into Thursday night’s contest against the Mavericks was simply too much to overcome. Playing for the fourth time in five nights, in the second game of a back-to-back, on the road, against one of the league’s elite teams, New…

  9. How Deron Williams almost became a Knick (instead of ‘Melo)

    Mar 10, 2011, 9:08 PM EDT

    Deron Williams, Avery Johnson, Billy King

    If the Denver Nuggets front office had gotten their wishes — if they could have traded Carmelo Anthony to the New Jersey Nets for Derrick Favors and picks rather than to New York — then Deron Williams would be a Knick today. In one of the infinite alternate universes that is the reality, but in…

  10. Video: Wednesday night game winners (all in one place)

    Mar 10, 2011, 8:14 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What a night. Carmelo Anthony had the big shot to win it, Kevin Durant hit the big one to send it to overtime (where the Thunder won). Dirk Nowitzki missed his chance to joint them. The Jazz got one lucky tip in to get their win. It was a wild night of buzzer-beater finishes around…

  11. Knicks stars have good laugh at Heat’s tears

    Mar 7, 2011, 10:37 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    Back in early July, when the Knicks had missed out on LeBron James and the Heat seemed to be forming a juggernaut, this day seemed a long way off. A day when Knicks stars Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, feeling confident after another big win, were having a laugh at the expense of the Heat…

  12. Earl Monroe says Carmelo Anthony can wear No. 15 if he wants

    Mar 5, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony James Dolan

    When PBT talked to him last week, Knicks legend Earl “The Pearl” Monroe was raving about these New York Knicks. He likes what he sees. He likes what Carmelo Anthony brings. And if Anthony wants to unretired Monroe’s No. 15 jersey, Monroe is good with that, he told the New York Post. Anthony wears No. 7…

  13. Mike D’Antoni has tweaked offense to fit Anthony, Billups

    Mar 4, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups

    Seven seconds or less was the perfect Steve Nash offense. It was Joe Montana in a West Coast formation. Nash is quick up the court, the best decision maker in the game, can shoot almost as well as he can pass. The offense was designed for him. It’s as close as turning a player loose…

  14. David Stern is not as freaked out by all this player movement as you are

    Mar 4, 2011, 10:16 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Every time — I mean every time — NBA Commissioner David Stern says publically now it is about the collective bargaining agreement negotiations. If he orders lasagna in an Italian restaurant it will somehow turn into a sharp blast at the mid-level exception. So when Dave Krieger of the Denver Post spoke to him about…

  15. Carmelo Anthony’s Dear John letter to Denver fans

    Mar 3, 2011, 5:52 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Carmelo Anthony has gone from Denver. Because he forced his way out. But, you know, he still loves you Denver fans. He really appreciates you. Sure, he has moved on the next phase of his career. Bright lights and the big city. But he’ll always care about you. That’s why he left you this goodbye…

  16. Earl “The Pearl” Monroe sees something familiar in these Knicks

    Mar 2, 2011, 3:50 PM EDT

    Earl Monroe New York Knicks

    Earl Monroe is not just another New Yorker. He’s a Knick legend. The Pearl. Black Magic. His playground nickname of “Jesus” lives on in He Got Game. He’s a champion. He is still involved in promoting New York basketball (keep reading, we’ll get to The People’s Games). But in other ways, he is just like…

  17. Timberwolves buy out Eddy Curry. Anybody interested? Anybody? Bueller?

    Mar 2, 2011, 12:51 AM EDT

    ecurry_beard

    It seemed unlikely that Eddy Curry was ever going to suit up for the Minnesota Timberwolves. It’s not like they were ever going to take minutes away from Kevin Love to give to Curry. Heck, I wouldn’t take minutes away from Darko to give to Curry. So the two sides agreed to a buyout, the…

  18. Does reducing the size of a max contract mean more player movement?

    Mar 1, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    There are not many things we can say for sure about the new Collective Bargaining Agreement that the players and owners are hammering out. Or will hammer out, right now they are just posturing. No actual work has taken place. But we know two things are pretty much certain. The owners will want less money…

  19. Knicks get the better of Heat as LeBron misses down the stretch

    Feb 28, 2011, 4:44 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Talk about a turnaround. From losing to the Cavaliers to beating the Heat, welcome to the Carmelo Anthony era. The Knicks did what you’d expect them to do for 3/4 of this game. They didn’t play defense, they took a lot of jumpshots, and they looked a step behind the Heat. Then all of a…

  20. Game 2 of the Melo era in New York did not go as planned

    Feb 26, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Whoops. Days after the Knicks downed the Bucks in Madison Square Garden to kick off the Carmelo Anthony era in, well, decent style if not glamor, things have taken a turn for the worse.  The Knicks were beaten by the Cavaliers Friday night before they meet the Heat on Sunday. Yes, the Cavaliers. Yes, those…

  21. Carmelo’s move may make CBA negotiations nastier

    Feb 25, 2011, 7:06 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony James Dolan

    Utah Jazz owner Greg Miller talked about it when he tried to explain to a shaken fan base why he felt he had to trade Deron Williams away. His argument: it’s a new era of stars congregating in big markets. The players have taken control of the process in a way they have not before.…

  22. George Karl calls Carmelo bad at defense, Carmelo is unhappy

    Feb 25, 2011, 5:28 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    In an interview taped before last night’s Celtics/Nuggets game on TNT, George Karl was enthusiastic about how the new-look Nuggets would be playing defense now that they didn’t have to “handle what Carmelo gives you” on the defensive end. Anthony apparently noticed, and tweeted the following last night: Damn, are u serious. Some people never…

  23. Poll: What team helped itself the most with trades?

    Feb 25, 2011, 9:42 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New York Knicks

    For weeks leading up, everyone we talked to was telling us it was going to be a quiet trade deadline. The new CBA coming, the bottleneck caused by the Carmelo Anthony deal, there were a bunch of reasons nothing much was going to happen. Then BOOM! With the force of a Blake Griffin dunk the…

  24. ‘Melo does what ‘Melo does, but old guy Toney Douglas saves Knicks

    Feb 24, 2011, 1:48 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New York Knicks

    Knicks fans, this is what you’re going to get from Carmelo Anthony. He had 27 points and one assist. He shot 10 of 25 on the night and you’re saying, “He had a poor shooting night.” Not really, he had a pretty average shooting night for himself — he is shooting 45.2 percent from the…

  25. What to Watch: Melo Debuts for the Knicks

    Feb 23, 2011, 6:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    After many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many months, Carmelo Anthony has finally been traded to the New York Knicks. He’ll debut tonight beside Amar’e Stoudemire against the Bucks in front of a sold-out crowd which will be buzzing like arguably never before.  But what exactly should we be watching for, exactly? Here are…
