Carmelo Anthony

  1. Isiah Thomas doesn’t deny he helped get ‘Melo to New York

    It’s never easy to tell reality with Isiah Thomas. With him, the truth is messy and convoluted. You want to make it simple — “he was a terrible GM” — but reality is more complex (he made some very good draft picks and showed an eye for spotting talent out of college). So it is…

  2. Video: Vintage Carmelo Anthony night gets Knicks win

    Mar 29, 2011, 9:02 AM EST

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    That was vintage Carmelo Anthony Monday night. His team needed a win and he put up 39 points hitting shots with a man in his face all night. He controlled the offense and the game in the second half. Watch the video. The flip side is he shot a pedestrian 46.1 percent, he took the…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Ugly or not, Knicks and Pacers will take wins

    Mar 29, 2011, 8:52 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while you were stealing a 600-pound bronze moose statue… Knicks 113, Magic 106 (OT): The Kicks were desperate for a win. The Magic were without Jameer Nelson and J.J. Redick which meant heavy doses of Gilbert Arenas (who was 1-of-7 from three). Dwight Howard fouled out. That meant a streak breaking win…

  4. Other key Knicks shooting worse since ‘Melo’s arrival

    Mar 28, 2011, 10:07 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Dallas Mavericks

    Since Carmelo Anthony arrived with the Knicks, their offense overall has gotten nominally better. They had averaged 109.8 points per 100 possessions, now that is up to 110.4. But they haven’t looked good doing it. (And the slightly better offense doesn’t make up for the much worse defense, especially in the fourth quarter. Which is…

  5. Hornets’ David West out for the season with torn ACL

    Mar 25, 2011, 5:22 PM EST

    david-west-torn-acl

    The Hornets’ David West went down in a heap Thursday night, with what the team officially described as “left knee trauma” at the time. Further tests on Friday revealed the injury to be a torn ACL (according to multiple reports) which will rule West out for the remainder of this season. While the team might…

  6. Knicks’ tired legs leading to fourth-quarter collapses

    Mar 24, 2011, 9:52 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    It happened again Wednesday night — the Knicks had seized a lead with a 15-6 run just before halftime then solidified it with a 7-0 spurt early in the third quarter. They had a shot at a big win over Orlando. Then it fell apart, as it has so often lately for the Knicks. The Magic were…

  7. Jerry West says it’s too early to judge ‘Melo trade

    Mar 24, 2011, 3:16 PM EST

    Jerry West is trying to talk some sense into New Yorkers. Good luck with that. The Logo spoke with the Associated Press and said what Knicks management and everyone on that end of the Carmelo Anthony trade has said — this is going to take time. To expect immediate results was a mistake, the trade…

  8. Former Nuggets staffer acknowledges trade rumors hurt play

    Mar 24, 2011, 1:35 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    It was pretty clear by the end that impacts of the Carmelo Anthony trade rumors had bled onto the court for the Denver Nuggets. They were not the same team that started the season, the one that seemed to have potential. Dean Oliver was a former front office guy and staticiscian for Denver who last…

  9. Among the Knicks problems: all that depth they traded away

    Mar 23, 2011, 11:29 AM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v New York Knicks

    Despite what some people on the island of Manhattan believed, the deal to get Carmelo Anthony was not a steal. This wasn’t purchasing Manhattan itself from the Native American Lenape people for trinkets. The Knicks are not coming together as fast as expected, and part of the reason is there is no depth around the…

  10. The Knicks have stopped running, stopped winning

    Mar 22, 2011, 8:29 AM EST

    Chauncey Billups, Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks

    There’s no making some Knicks fans happy, they expect the team to win two Larry O’Brien trophies a season and anything short is a failure. But it’s more than the losing that is making them unhappy lately. Talk to Knicks fans, check out the message boards and you hear that it’s the way they are…

  11. Knicks’ slide continues as Celtics come from 15 down to win

    Mar 22, 2011, 12:18 AM EST

    pierce-celtics-knicks

    Because there might be a little rivalry between the two cities when it comes to sports, we’re rooting for — and could see — a New York/Boston first-round matchup. Boston is deadlocked with Chicago for first, and New York is comfortably in the seventh spot, with no reason to believe that the team will be…

  12. ‘Melo says it might be next season before Knicks jell

    Mar 21, 2011, 10:02 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    In case you missed it Sunday, the Knicks two superstars playing in the vaunted “seven seconds of less” offense managed to put up just 9 points in the first quarter Sunday against the Bucks. Then, while they put up 32 in the next quarter, the Knicks went on to lose the game. Carmelo Anthony told…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Carmelo Anthony was better but the Knicks were not

    Mar 21, 2011, 2:29 AM EST

    Chauncey Billups

    What you missed while thinking the Big East was overrated… Bucks 100, Knicks 95: Just when you thought things really could not get uglier for the Knick, we bring you the start to Sunday’s game. New York was dismal in the first quarter putting up just 9 points and shooting just 16 percent — the…

  14. Stoudemire wants return to D’Antoni offense after Knicks struggles

    Mar 20, 2011, 11:40 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    At first, we took it as a sign that Mike D’Antoni was not a rigid, my-way-or-the-highway coach. He adjusted his system, putting in more isolatons and post up plays and scaling back some on the up-tempo, pick-and-roll offense. Except, it’s not really working. The team is struggling, and that includes an ugly loss to the…

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

    Mar 17, 2011, 1:40 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 17, 2011, 11:10 AM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 16, 2011, 11:50 AM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 15, 2011, 7:38 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 15, 2011, 3:44 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 15, 2011, 2:35 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 14, 2011, 1:36 PM EST

    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…

  22. Improved Knicks no match for elite Mavericks

    Mar 11, 2011, 1:29 AM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 10, 2011, 9:08 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 10, 2011, 8:14 AM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 7, 2011, 10:37 AM EST

    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…
