Carmelo Anthony

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

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

    Mar 2, 2011, 12:51 AM EDT

    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…

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

    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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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.…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. ‘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…

  15. 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…

  16. Carmelo is in New York! (And Dolan wants you to know Isiah is not)

    Feb 23, 2011, 6:36 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony James Dolan

    New York is buzzing over Carmelo Anthony. Like first date with Minka Kelly kind of buzzing. They are over-the-top giddy and can’t believe they landed this. Anthony himself is trying to play it cool while still getting the lay of the land in what can be the unpredictable world of the New York Knicks. Like…

  17. Nuggets GM on Carmelo Anthony deal: “We got killed”

    Feb 23, 2011, 1:13 PM EDT

    Image (1) canthony_billups-thumb-250x140-18636.jpg for post 3784

    Denver is not Cleveland. They got something back for their superstar. But Denver was not a winner either in having to trade away Carmelo Anthony, and their GM Masai Ujiri said as much, as the fantastic Chris Tomasson reported at Fanhouse. “We feel we got killed in the trade because we lost a couple of…

  18. Knicks may not think it’s a rivalry, but Nets do and they won round one

    Feb 23, 2011, 12:29 PM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    Mention a Knicks/Nets rivalry to a Knicks fan and they laugh a dismissive little laugh. There is no rivalry — the Knicks play in Manhattan and the Nets are still in Newark, the swamps of Jersey. Even when they come to Brooklyn, that’s not on the island. The  Knicks dismiss the rivalry out of hand.…

  19. Report: Carmelo Anthony to suit up for Knicks Wednesday

    Feb 22, 2011, 9:33 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    Pity the Milwaukee Bucks. They get to come into Madison Square Garden on the night Carmelo Anthony first puts on a Knicks jersey and wants to impress his new hometown fans. The trade has become official, ‘Melo in in New York and is expected to play, according to a tweet from Frank Isola of the…

  20. Minor addition to ‘Melo trade: Wolves send Kosta Koufos to Denver

    Feb 22, 2011, 8:58 PM EDT

    Koufos_Kosta

    It was a minor part of the Carmelo Anthony trade that was not mentioned yesterday, but we feel it should be put out there so you, dear reader, feel fully informed — center Kosta Koufos is headed to Denver. The Timberwolves are trading Koufos to clear out time for their existing front line players —…

  21. The Knickerbocker Empire got its prize in Melo, but the real battle begins now

    Feb 22, 2011, 2:45 PM EDT

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    Congratulations, Mr. Dolan! You’ve landed your prize! You have two, count ‘em two, stars to fill the seats in Madison Square Garden. Carmelo Anthony joins Amar’e Stoudemire for the Knicks and the star power is through the roof now in New York. You have successfully acquired a second NBA All-Star, which is difficult to do…

  22. Nuggets plan to keep Felton

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:25 PM EDT

    image

    Carmelo Anthony’s move to the Big Apple may be taking up all the headline real estate, but Raymond Felton’s departure is also quite notable. He was neither a star nor a New York establishment, but like former-Knicks, now-Nuggets Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler, Felton is a quality player and a legitimate starter. However, the Anthony…

  23. With Anthony and Billups, does the Knicks offense really get better?

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:22 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    On a very basic level, the question seems almost absurd. Does the Carmelo Anthony trade make the Knicks offense better? The gut first reaction is “Of course it does. ‘Melo is a scorer going to a system where they just ask guys to get out and score. Match made in heaven.” Then you look at…

  24. Carmelo Anthony has his legacy in his hands in New York

    Feb 22, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Carmelo Anthony gets mentioned as one of the game’s elite scorers. As he should. Few players can average 25 points a season consistently. Few players in the league can fill it up — from anywhere on the court, creating their own shot — like Anthony. He doesn’t do it terribly efficiently (his shooting percentage is…

  25. Can the Knicks play any defense now?

    Feb 22, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    The New York Knicks were not a good defensive team on Monday morning — they were 20th in the league giving up 106.3 points per 100 possessions (via Hoopdata). Because they like to run that means giving up an average of 106 points per game, second worst in the league. They were 21st in the…
