Carmelo Anthony

  1. Kobe Bryant on Denver fans booing ‘Melo: “That’s stupid”

    Jan 20, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony dropped 35 points on the Oklahoma City Thunder, taking over the fourth quarter, in what was one of the — if not the — best wins of the season for the Nuggets Wednesday. And still fans booed him during the post game, on court interview. Kobe Bryant doesn’t get that, as he told…

  2. Nets’ GM: We’re moving on, keeping flexibility for new CBA

    Jan 20, 2011, 3:29 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v New Jersey Nets

    Billy King seemed (and by some accounts was) stunned by Mikhail Prokhorov pulling the plug on the Carmelo Anthony trade talks. The strongest bargaining position is a willingness to walk away from the negotiating table — Prokhorov did that with gusto. Maybe the Nets and Nuggets do talk again, but Nets GM Billy King went…

  3. Knicks may get ‘Melo, but don’t expect it via free agency

    Jan 20, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    There are a lot of questions and a lot of rumors flying around about what happens with Carmelo Anthony now that the Nets have pulled out of the running. One of the theories: Anthony will play out his contract, opt out next summer and come to the Knicks as a free agent. Not going to…

  4. Kobe Bryant on pace to set record: Most missed field goals

    Jan 20, 2011, 10:58 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    In the next couple of years Kobe Bryant is going to pass another legendary Celtic in the record book. But not in a good way. Kobe Bryant is on pace to break the record for most missed shots in a career, according to some fun research by John Hollinger at ESPN (a post behind the…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: When good games are overshadowed by the ‘Melodrama

    Jan 20, 2011, 9:36 AM EDT

    Magic Celebrate

    What you missed while reading the story about Deadspin in GQ… Nets 103, Jazz 95: “Melo? We don’t need no stinkin’ Melo” In what in some ways seemed like an anti-climactic game, was “Russian Culture” night in New Jersey. That motivated Andrei Kirilenko who came out fast. But once the game settled down this was…

  6. Carmelo Anthony talks Nets, says he told them nothing

    Jan 20, 2011, 2:09 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony dunk

    When reporters descended on him postgame, Carmelo Anthony still hadn’t seen the press conference where  Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov pulled the plug on trade discussions that would have sent Anthony to New Jersey. (It’s understandable, Anthony had been a tad busy dropping 35 on the Thunder in a Nugget win). Still his post-game comments sounded…

  7. Troy Murphy requests trade from Nets, given leave from team

    Jan 19, 2011, 11:55 PM EDT

    Nets_Murphy

    Troy Murphy — and his $12 million expiring contract — will not be part of a Carmelo Anthony trade, it appears. But he will be part of some trade. He has requested a trade from the Nets and was told to stay at home away from the team until GM Billy King can arraign that,…

  8. Winderman: Welcome to ‘Melodrama, Part II

    Jan 19, 2011, 11:09 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Sacramento Kings

    Now comes Part II of the Melo melodrama, and this could be even more intriguing. Not by volume, of course. The next incarnation won’t be a 15-player package. Rather, it will be fascinating to see just how much a team is willing to ante up for a potential four-month rental. In many ways, Anthony could…

  9. Now what for Carmelo Anthony? Denver?

    Jan 19, 2011, 8:43 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Denver Nuggets

    A trade between Denver and New Jersey for Carmelo Anthony always made sense — for Denver and New Jersey. Anthony never seemed all that interested, the fact he wanted to meet with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov to be sold on the team does not make him sound like a guy who wanted to go there.…

  10. Nets walk away from Carmelo Anthony trade

    Jan 19, 2011, 6:12 PM EDT

    Cavaliers Nuggets Basketball

    Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has told Nets management to walk away from all Carmelo Anthony negotiations. He has reportedly cancelled a meeting with Anthony, and says his decision is final. The Denver Post has a recap of what Prokhorov said during a pre-game news conference on Wednesday about his decision to walk away from the table: “There…

  11. It’s time to end this ‘Melo drama

    Jan 19, 2011, 4:40 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Utah Jazz, Game 6

    It’s time. Carmelo Anthony and the will he/won’t he, New Jersey or New York (or Chicago) drama, it’s been an entertaining little sideshow to the NBA season. Some nice garlic mashed potatoes next to the rare prime rib. But for everyone involved, this saga has reached the point of diminishing returns. With the arrival Wednesday…

  12. Report: Melo’s reps push Bulls to get back in trade mix

    Jan 19, 2011, 3:07 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Right now, there is little truth around Carmelo Anthony, just negotiating tactics. For example, steps by Anthony’s reps to create the illusion of demand, to pressure parties into agreeing to a deal. Carmelo Anthony’s representatives are pushing the Chicago Bulls to get back in the trade bidding for the Nuggets star, according to Adrian Wojnarowski…

  13. Anthony Morrow should be back with Nets this weekend… if he’s still a Net then

    Jan 19, 2011, 12:56 PM EDT

    anthony morrow

    Anthony Morrow’s hamstring will have kept him out of the lineup for 17 games as of Wednesday night. If you don’t think that has impacted the Nets, you haven’t watched Stephen Graham play the two guard. But Morrow is expected to return this weekend to the team, maybe by Friday night, according to the twitter…

  14. If not ‘Melo, Nets may eye Andrei Kirilenko this summer

    Jan 19, 2011, 10:26 AM EDT

    Andrei Kirilenko

    The New Jersey Nets are in full-out Carmelo Anthony mode. They move to Brooklyn in two years and see the Knicks as their rivals and competition. They also see a resurgent Knicks led by Amar’e Stoudemire and feel the need to counter that with their own star. Someone who can be the marque name to…

  15. Report: The holdup isn’t ‘Melo, it’s the Nuggets and Nets

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:48 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony Smiles

    While we’ve all been waiting (and waiting, and waiting…) for Carmelo Anthony to make up his mind — New York or New Jersey? — the Associated Press reports we’ve all had it wrong. He’s not the holdup — it’s the Nets and Nuggets. A person with knowledge of the proposed Carmelo Anthony trade says the…

  16. George Karl calls ‘Melo “distracted” during practice. Can’t imagine why.

    Jan 18, 2011, 7:31 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    At some point, all of the insanity surrounding Carmelo Anthony and his  proposed trade had to catch up with him. That point may have been today. Nuggets coach George Karl called Anthony “very distracted” during today’s practice, reports Chris Tomasson of FanHouse. “If Melo plays distracted, I can’t play him as many minutes,” Karl, whose…

  17. Carmelo Anthony says there will be a lockout “without a doubt”

    Jan 18, 2011, 12:19 PM EDT

    Cavaliers Nuggets Basketball

    On the record, everyone tries to keep a brave face. Basically every last person involved in the new Collective Bargaining Association talks say that a lockout can be avoided. They then say that will happen when the other side caves to their demands. But on the record they hold out hope. Off the record, nobody…

  18. ‘Melo: “I would never go about it the way LeBron did”

    Jan 18, 2011, 11:54 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony may not be handling his departure from Denver perfectly, but after watching what LeBron James did last summer leaving Cleveland Anthony told Sports Illustrated he learned some lessons. “I would never go about it the way LeBron did it,” the Denver Nuggets’ three-time All-Star forward told Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Ian Thomsen… “If…

  19. If Knicks trade for 2012 pick, they can trade 2011 and 2013

    Jan 18, 2011, 10:43 AM EDT

    Image (1) donnie_walsh-thumb-250x250-21082.jpg for post 6239

    Knicks GM Donnie Walsh has said he has a way to get more than one first round draft pick — a not so subtle comment aimed at the Denver Nuggets (who still are working hard with the Nets on a Carmelo Anthony trade and are avoiding the Knicks like they have the Hantavirus). There have…

  20. Nets say no permission given to talk to ‘Melo. Yet. Meanwhile Knicks talk more picks.

    Jan 17, 2011, 5:10 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    Just as an update, here is where we stand with Carmelo Anthony and the trade rumors, a saga that has become more annoying and drawn out than a Grey’s Anatomy storyline. Sunday it was reported that the Nets were given permission to talk to Carmelo Anthony, which really meant Nets owners Mikhail Prokhorov and Jay-Z…

  21. Carmelo Anthony: “I don’t want to talk to nobody.”

    Jan 17, 2011, 4:18 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    As we told you previously, Carmelo Anthony has been offered freedom to talk to the New Jersey Nets about going East as part of a massive three-team trade… Except, for the record, he doesn’t want to talk to anyone. That’s what he said Sunday night, as reported by the Denver Post. “I don’t want to…

  22. Nets granted permission to speak with Melo

    Jan 16, 2011, 9:51 PM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    Throughout this entire, bizarre process, there have been some who kept questioning if any of this was true or just a fabrication of the New York media. After all, Carmelo Anthony never said he wanted to be traded from the Nuggets. And technically that could still be true. But a big piece fell into place…

  23. ‘Melo says it’s all about winning. Trade to Nets moves closer. Do those two things go together?

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:32 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    It’s getting close. The Nuggets, Nets and Pistons are still negotiating, hammering out the final details of a proposed blockbuster trade, something the Denver Post and multiple other sources are reporting. The details could be finalized the first part of next week, after the Nuggets finish their road trip Sunday night. Then it all falls…

  24. Memphis may not blow it up after Conley extension

    Jan 15, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Sacramento Kings

    As we mentioned Friday night, Chris Broussard of ESPN reported Friday night that the Nuggets are not interested in the deal the Knicks were trying to put together which would land them Carmelo Anthony, with O.J. Mayo going to Denver. It’s a major sigh of relief for Grizzlies fans who would have been doubly-screwed in such…

  25. ‘Melo calls New York the “ultimate dream.” Doesn’t say Brooklyn or Manhattan.

    Jan 14, 2011, 11:15 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    This much has always been clear — Carmelo Anthony wants to play in New York, to come back home to the city he grew up in. He echoed that again to ESPN Friday. “That’s like the ultimate dream at the end of the day,” Anthony said. “Who wouldn’t want to go back home to play?”…
