Carmelo Anthony

  1. Report: D’Antoni’s job with Knicks safe. For now at least.

    Jan 28, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    Apparently the Knicks are not planning to end the Mike D’Antoni era any time soon. Then again, Flip Saunders got a direct vote of confidence from his owner just a couple weeks before the axe fell. But as of right now, there are no plans to make a move — but D’Antoni’s fate could rest…

  2. Heat show Knicks how to run up-tempo offense and win

    Jan 27, 2012, 11:34 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade was back and so were the Heat. After a few games of the LeBron James show with the pace slowed (while Wade recovered from a sprained ankle), the Miami Heat with Wade returned to their high-pressure, up-tempo style of play — you know, kind of like Mike D’Antoni was brought in to run…

  3. It’s official, Dwyane Wade back for Heat Friday vs. Knicks

    Jan 27, 2012, 7:11 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat

    Despite national media reports to the contrary earlier in the day (not here, we know who to listen to), Dwyane Wade will be back playing for the Heat on Friday night. Wade had been through shootaround and everything felt fine, so he is a go. Here is coach Erik Spoelstra’s quote, thanks to Ira Winderman…

  4. LeBron James says Knicks fans should be patient

    Jan 27, 2012, 1:46 PM EDT

    LeBron James Carmelo Anthony

    Just so we’re clear, LeBron James is preaching patience to New Yorkers. Good luck with that. The Knicks are struggling this season and now get to face the Heat Friday without Carmelo Anthony, who is taking the weekend off. In their first full season with ‘Melo, Amare Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler there were high expectations.…

  5. Carmelo Anthony out Friday vs. Heat (and one more game)

    Jan 27, 2012, 11:04 AM EDT

    Knicks' Anthony watches a free throws by Grizzlies during NBA game in Memphis

    Carmelo Anthony has clearly not been right the last couple games. He is 5-for-21 shooting, has looked sluggish and is battling a sore wrist and ankle. So he is going to take a couple of games off — Mike D’Antoni told the media at shootaround Friday that Anthony is out for a showdown with the…

  6. Dwight Howard says he would consider Boston. Well, sure.

    Jan 26, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Remember how first LeBron James went around the country the season before “The Decision” and whenever he got to a new city and was asked if he could see himself playing there he said yes? Then last year Carmelo Anthony tried a calmer version of that same play, but would never say no to any…

  7. Thursday And-1 links: Heat arena as homeless shelter?

    Jan 26, 2012, 11:38 AM EDT

    AAArena_Night

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Some politicians want to force Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena to house the homeless on non-game nights (that was part of the public financing plan). Feels like…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Indiana gets a little revenge

    Jan 26, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah, Danny Granger, David West

    What you missed while being exhausted, just like Demi Moore…. Lakers 96, Clippers 91: This was feisty like a playoff game and was our game of the night. Pacers 95, Bulls 90: Last year in the first round of the playoffs the Bulls brushed the Pacers aside with ease — this game was evidence of…

  9. The Kobe System: Forbes says Bryant NBA’s top earner

    Jan 25, 2012, 9:10 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    Apparently the Kobe System has taken him beyond success. You’re welcome. As part of their NBA financial breakdown on Wednesday, Forbes Magazine named the top earners in the NBA, based on both salary and endorsements. Not shockingly (and to the delight of Vanessa), Kobe Bryant tops the list at $53.2 million last year. Kobe made…

  10. Nuggets reach contract extension with Danilo Gallinari

    Jan 25, 2012, 1:05 PM EDT

    Danilo Gallinari

    UPDATE 1:05 pm: And just like that it is official — multiple sources are now saying the deal is official at four years, $42 million. This is a good deal, both for Danilo Gallinari and the Nuggets. Gallo is not a max-deal guy, but he is a borderline All-Star and the kind of player at…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: ‘Melo is off but Knicks aren’t

    Jan 25, 2012, 3:16 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Tyrus Thomas

    What you missed while calling 911 asking to fight a cop…. Raptors 99, Suns 96: The biggest upset of the night was our game of the night. Knicks 111, Bobcats 78: Carmelo Anthony wondered if he shot too much after the Knicks loss to the Nuggets, then he sat down with Amar’e Stoudemire and talked…

  12. NBA quarter pole awards: Yes, LeBron is the MVP

    Jan 24, 2012, 2:37 PM EDT

    Miami Heats' LeBron James plays against the Philadelphia 76ers during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    We are a quarter of the way into the NBA season, which is far too early to start talking about end of the season awards, playoffs or much of anything else. I’m going to anyway. Here are the awards in a few categories as we reach the quarter pole. We’ve got a long back stretch…

  13. Baron Davis returns to practice, but can his ailing back bear New York’s wildest expectations?

    Jan 23, 2012, 4:38 PM EDT

    baron davis

    Abandon all expectations ye who enter here: alleged Knicks savior Baron Davis is officially playing basketball again. Davis underwent a full practice for the first time since signing with New York in December, and according to the Associated Press, the team hopes he’ll be available for his regular season debut at some point during the…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls on top after quarter of season

    Jan 23, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Believe it or not, we are about a quarter of the way through the condensed NBA season already. And with that, these rankings are starting to take some solid shape. Which is bad news for Celtics and Knicks fans. But it’s all good in Chicago. 1. Bulls (15-3, last week ranked No. 1). If Derrick…

  15. Report: Anthony, Stoudemire to meet, discuss Knicks woes

    Jan 23, 2012, 12:25 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Amar’e Stoudemire was an afterthought in the Knicks offense for much of the second half against the Nuggets — he had just three shot attempts through the final 24 minutes and two overtimes. Carmelo Anthony put up 20 in that same time. In a game that became the Knicks sixth straight loss. Coincidence? Anthony acknowledged…

  16. Melo says it may be time to ‘re-evaluate everything’ and that you can boo him all you want

    Jan 22, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

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

    The word “reflective” was used to describe Carmelo Anthony after Saturday night’s loss to the Nuggets. He wasn’t just pressing ahead, spitting out “both teams played hard” and ignoring the realities of where the Knick are at. He was honest about the struggles, and even if the comments come with a slight dose of bitterness,…

  17. Knicks put it together against Nuggets… and then go back to Melo-ball

    Jan 22, 2012, 12:11 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    It makes sense, on one level. You play good team ball for 45 minutes. You create open looks, you drive to the rim, you produce opportunities to get you into a tight game. And then, when it comes down to clutch time, you let your star scorer score. That makes a lot of sense and…

  18. The Knicks, Carmelo, D’Antoni, and being set up for success vs. failure

    Jan 21, 2012, 4:23 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Mike D'Antoni

    It’s panic time in New York. Not across the board, mind you. There are always those that seek calmer seas, that urge for patience, that understand that all teams go through winning and losing streaks, and just because times are rough it does not mean you throw out the mustached baby with the What-Toney-Dougalas-Do bathwater.…

  19. Deron Williams has a wish list, too. Nets are on top for now.

    Jan 20, 2012, 4:41 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    The conventional wisdom has been that if the Nets could not land another star to join Deron Williams in New Jersey this season or Brooklyn next season, he would opt out this summer — crushing the Nets franchise that gave up a lot to get him — and heading to his hometown of Dallas next…

  20. NBA All-Star starting teams pretty much set already

    Jan 19, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    All-star-nba-logo0103_rdax

    You can keep voting on the NBA All-Star Game players through the end of the month — you can vote every day between now and then, if your heart so desires. It’s not going to matter, the All-Star Game starters are pretty locked in. The NBA released the second round of All-Star balloting returns on…

  21. Steve Nash has Mike D’Antoni’s back in New York

    Jan 19, 2012, 1:09 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni Steve Nash

    Steve Nash came into Madison Square Garden Wednesday night and handed the Knicks their fourth-straight loss. Which has led to renewed calls for the head of Mike D’Antoni in some skyscrapers and pizza parlors around New York and the boroughs. He’s in the last year of his contract and his Knicks do not look like…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s Bizzaro World night in NBA

    Jan 19, 2012, 8:05 AM EDT

    Andray Blatche Wizards

    What you missed while watching the Australian Open and thinking “I need to go to vacation there”…. Wizards 105, Thunder 102: Yes, you are reading that right. The worst team in the NBA (1-12 entering the game) just beat a title contender (12-2 before this started). It gets weirder — Oklahoma City shot 48.1 percent…

  23. Report: Knicks will target Steve Nash next summer

    Jan 18, 2012, 12:13 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    The Knicks need a point guard. I know it, you know it, anyone who has watched 20 seconds of a Knicks game knows it. Their front office knows it, too. Getting a quality one this season via trade is unlikely (hence the hope that Baron Davis can be the man), so they are looking at…

  24. Wednesday And-1 links: Cuban is still spending on something

    Jan 18, 2012, 11:22 AM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    Welcome to our look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Mark Cuban is going to spend about $1.4 million on Mavericks championship rings. He’ll do it without blinking. He’d gladly do it again next year, but…

  25. Amar’e Stoudemire disappointed to be left off Team USA

    Jan 17, 2012, 4:43 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Stoudemire celebrates a basket against the Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Back in the summer of 2010, Amar’e Stoudemire was going to be part of the Team USA squad that went on to Turkey and the FIBA World Championships and won gold (qualifying the team for the 2012 Olympics). But then he signed an uninsured $100 million deal with the Knicks — nobody would insure Stoudemire’s…
