Carmelo Anthony

  1. With rumors abound, Lakers near a franchise crossroads

    Nov 29, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    Though the formalization of the new CBA proceeds at a slow churn, the NBA rumor mill is already in mid-season form. Chris Paul and Dwight Howard — both in the final year of their respective contracts — are suddenly ready to be shipped every which way, and media outlets of every form are examining the…

  2. Report: Chris Paul eyeing Knicks or… Clippers?

    Nov 29, 2011, 8:01 AM EST

    Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony

    When the New Orleans Hornets reach out to Chris Paul not long after Dec. 9, they will offer him a max deal that will have one more guaranteed year and be worth $27 million more than what any other team can offer. That’s a lot of money. And there are not many people — even…

  3. LeBron, Wade, ‘Melo homecoming tour now just one game

    Nov 28, 2011, 9:54 AM EST

    LeBron James, Duane Wade, Carmelo Antho

    The summer (and fall) of NBA charity games has come to an end… but not without at least one more. The “homecoming tour” to be anchored by LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony has been cancelled, to be replaced by one game in New York this Tuesday. Games in Akron, New Orleans…

  4. Heat, Knicks may be big winners in last minute deal changes

    Nov 26, 2011, 6:57 PM EST

    NBA Finals Heat Mavericks Basketball

    Part of the motivation for the hardline owners during the NBA lockout was to never let what happened with LeBron James going to Miami to ever happen again. To never let what Carmelo Anthony did to the Nuggets ever happen again (they lost the ‘Melo part of the fight). Small market owners didn’t like players…

  5. What was finally decided with those “thorny” system issues?

    Nov 26, 2011, 4:10 PM EST

    NBPA Meet To Discuss Current CBA Offer

    It was the most confounding part of this constantly confounding NBA lockout. The owners and players got to a point a few weeks ago where they essentially agreed on the money side of the equation — how to split up the revenue coming into the league — but could not get close on the “system”…

  6. Owners have a lot to prove in the life of this CBA

    Nov 26, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    Mark Cuban, David Stern

    It’s over, and now we have to look back and survey the wreckage. 480 games lost. Millions of dollars in league revenue, local economy revenue, player salaries. Fans hurt by the way the league and players left them behind in pursuit of more money. Momentum lost after the most exciting season in over a decade.…

  7. What we know about the deal that ended the lockout so far

    Nov 26, 2011, 10:40 AM EST

    NBA And Players Representatives Meet To Discuss Possible Settlement

    It’s less than eight hours after a bleary-eyed group of executives and attorneys shuffled into a small conference room at a New York office building to deliver the news: a tentative deal is in place. The lockout is over. Now begins the process of unraveling what happened and how, and determining what the new CBA…

  8. LeBron, Wade, ‘Melo to host four city “homecoming tour”

    Nov 21, 2011, 9:39 AM EST

    LeBron James, Duane Wade, Carmelo Antho

    And the charity games just keep on coming… and in this case getting bigger. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony will headline a four-city homecoming tour with money raised from the games going to charity, reports the Associated Press. Other players will slide in and out of the tour, but those four…

  9. Carmelo Anthony trolls league over “Melo Rule”

    Tommy Hilfiger Womens - Backstage - Spring 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

    So after Carmelo Anthony hijacked the Nuggets’ season last year and held them hostage until they traded him, and not just anywhere, but specifically to the team he desired, the New York Knicks, the owners… well, they got a little miffed. You’ve been insulted twice by the power of players over the people who pay…

  10. President Obama to host NBA lockout charity game

    Nov 19, 2011, 10:59 AM EST

    President Barack Obama

    Sure, we’ve grown a little weary of the NBA lockout charity games. But when the president calls and says he is putting a game together guys are going to lace it up for that one. Well, it’s to help fundraise for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, so maybe we shouldn’t expect to see Spencer Hawes. But…

  11. Jay-Z turns away NBA stars from GQ party VIP room

    Nov 18, 2011, 3:44 PM EST

    Jay-Z

    Oh, the horror. This damn NBA lockout continues to cause NBA players untold pain. Like not being able to get in to the VIP areas of swank Los Angeles parties. Like the GQ party Thursday where Jay-Z was in attendance along with Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Andre Iguodala, Russell Westbrook, JaVale McGee and Shannon Brown,…

  12. Video: Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire hang with Grover

    Nov 10, 2011, 9:08 AM EST

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    You know you’ve made it in New York when you get invited to do Sesame Street. Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire have made it, this is a clip from a new Sesame Street episode set to air Friday morning (check your local listings). No, ‘Melo and Grover do not count to 18.5 million together (that’s…

    Nov 3, 2011, 12:14 PM EST

    Italy Basketball Bryant Bologna

    Just in case you’ve forgotten that the NBA is locked out, let me do my absolute damnedest to remind you: we could be talking about actual basketball right now, but instead, I’m going to point you in the direction of E! Online’s listing of 15 “Super Sexy Basketball Hunks,” (via Tim Griffin of Spurs Nation). The…

  14. More NBA lockout games coming, Memphis and Atlanta up

    Nov 2, 2011, 2:22 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    So long as the lockout drags on, we’re going to see NBA exhibition and charity games put on by players. There is a one in San Jose this coming weekend featuring Warriors old and new, with more on the way. One will be in Memphis next Tuesday and is being put together by Rudy Gay,…

  15. NBA Lockout: LeBron James and the kingdom ruled by knights

    Oct 30, 2011, 2:40 PM EST

    World Basketball Festival

    In 1964, the players for the NBA All-Star Game refused to leave the locker room at the famed Boston Gardens. The game was going to be televised, a huge step forward for the league, and the players knew this was their best chance at getting the owners by their tender parts. They refused to walk…

  16. Puerto Rico World All-Star game postponed, stick fork in tour

    Oct 28, 2011, 11:04 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    So much for that “see how much money we can make without the NBA” tour. After seemingly half the stars in the World All-Star Classic constellation pulled out in the past week, the first game — scheduled for Sunday in Puerto Rico — and the entire series now has been sucked into a black hole.…

  17. Players smile, sign-and-trade seems to be part of new CBA

    Oct 28, 2011, 12:42 PM EST

    Miami Heat's LeBron James gestures after being fouled in NBA basketball playoff action against the Philadelphia 76ers in Miami

    If there was one thing I thought small market owners would fight to keep out of the new NBA labor deal it was the sign-and-trade. It’s what LeBron James and Chris Bosh had after-the-fact. It can be used to hold a smaller market hostage. The player gets his money and his ticket to a new team…

  18. World All Star Classic tour will go on, minus a few stars

    Oct 26, 2011, 10:55 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant Kevin Durant

    It will be the biggest summer showcase yet — what the promoters are humbly calling a “showcase of unprecedented proportions” — with a galaxy of NBA stars. Just ignore the few black holes. Even after some defections there will be a World All-Star Classic tour, starting in Puerto Rico on Oct. 30 (Sunday). From there…

  19. Report: LeBron, ‘Melo, Chris Paul pull out of international tour

    Oct 26, 2011, 5:35 PM EST

    LeBron James, Chris Paul

    You know that big planned international tour of players going all over the globe? The World All-Star Classic? The legs may have just come out from under it. LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul all have pulled out of it at the last minute, tweets ESPN’s Chris Broussard. This was on top of Derrick…

  20. Video: Nike ad finds ‘Melo, Wade, Chris Paul new places to play

    Oct 25, 2011, 10:13 AM EST

    Jordan Brand Presents The 23/25 Energy Space In Dallas, TX

    Got to give this to Nike — even during the lockout they know how to make some advertisements that will sell some shoes. This latest one for the Jordan Brand has Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade playing in pickup games — pretty standard pickup games that you and I could walk into for…

  21. Can we just be honest and say this is about LeBron?

    Oct 23, 2011, 7:00 PM EST

    LeBron James

    When “The Decision” happened, we said it would change the course of NBA history. We didn’t exactly see this coming. Since the lockout began, there have been several storylines beneath the primary conflict. The racial component, the in-fighting between agents and union officials, the superstars’ interjecting themselves, it’s been a party of subplots. But this…

  22. Carmelo Anthony looks for place to host NYC charity game

    Oct 21, 2011, 10:47 AM EST

    Tommy Hilfiger Womens - Backstage - Spring 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

    Well, it looks like we’ll have more time for All-Star filled charity games and international exhibition tours. So Carmelo Anthony is looking to bring a big one to the New York area… he just needs to find a venue, reports the New York Post. The problem is that Madison Square Garden is out (home to…

  23. Melo thinks the perception of his defense is team-centric

    Oct 13, 2011, 7:11 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony Panda

    Yeah, no, Melo’s not backing down on this criticism of his defense. After saying yesterday that it was a matter of unfamiliarity last season and a flawed perception, Melo continued his media cruising for his shoe with a conversation with Grantland. And this time, it’s all about the team. Kind of. You said you want…

  24. Carmelo Anthony says he made the right decision with trade

    Oct 13, 2011, 11:50 AM EST

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    It was an ugly mess watching Carmelo Anthony force his way out of Denver last season. But for Anthony, it was the right move. He looks at the ongoing lockout, the lost games, the limbo he would be in as a free agent and thinks how he handled everything worked out for the best. That’s…

  25. Carmelo Anthony defends his defense

    Oct 12, 2011, 3:59 PM EST

    Celtics' Pierce drives into defense of Knicks' Anthony during the first half of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Carmelo Anthony is not a good defensive player. That’s not just me talking, after ‘Melo was traded from Denver to New York Nuggets coach George Karl told TNT his team would be much better on defense now that they didn’t have to “handle what Carmelo gives you” on that end. Anthony took exception to that…
