Carmelo Anthony

  1. Rockets not bad, but adrift in NBA’s middle ground without a star to guide them

    Nov 17, 2010, 4:01 PM EDT

    rockets_huddle

    There are two parts to constructing a winning team. First, get yourself a superstar or two. Next, get complementary and affordable role players to go around them that fit the system. The Houston Rockets have the second part of this down, it’s the first part that has Daryl Morey stuck. But he’s trying, according to…

  2. George Karl says he wants to coach next season, but health will determine

    Nov 16, 2010, 10:42 PM EDT

    In one sense, George Karl is just like Carmelo Anthony, Kenyon Martin and JR Smith — who knows if they will be back with the Nuggets next season. Except Karl is for a refreshingly non-monetary reason, as he told the Associated Press before the game. It’s all about his health. “At the end of the…

  3. Vecsey says Carmelo Anthony wants to win now, play for Knicks. We’re confused, too.

    Nov 16, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    The conflict in what Carmelo Anthony says he wants is right out there in the open after the latest report: Find a way to make the Nuggets the best team in the West this season — so trade for a big asset without trading anything away — or trade me to the Knicks so I…

  4. Carmelo Anthony says nice things about Denver, but does that change anything?

    Nov 12, 2010, 12:26 PM EDT

    Image (1) Anthony_Bryant-thumb-250x161-21238.jpg for post 4379

    Denver has a good basketball team right now. We were reminded of that last night when they hung with the Lakers in a scoring fest, got good play off the bench (I could swear I saw Al Harrington on help defense) and played enough defense late to hand Los Angeles its first loss. The capacity…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Hornets are the only undefeated team in the league

    What you missed while figuring out that Goodfellas and My Blue Heaven were written about the same guy

  6. Nuggets shake up front office, what does that mean for ‘Melo?

    Nov 9, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    Image (1) CAnthony_stares-thumb-250x140-17932.jpg for post 3604

    The changing of the guard continues in Denver. With Josh Kroenke — team president and incoming owner — taking a more active role in the front office since this summer there have been a number of changes. Mark Warkentien and Rex Chapman walked out the door this summer. Now Bret Bearup – a powerful advisor…

  7. Carmelo Anthony sounds happy in Denver. Right now.

    Nov 8, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    CAnthony_miss

    The Nuggets are playing well — they are right in the mix on the second tier in the west with the Hornets and Spurs. They are 4-2, that with Chauncey Billups struggling with his shot and basically the entire front line injured. So how does that affect Carmelo Anthony’s desire to leave? Hard to say,…

  8. Carmelo Anthony comes to Chicago tonight, but still in Nuggets uniform

    Nov 8, 2010, 9:39 AM EDT

    Image (1) anthony_thumbsup-thumb-250xauto-21270.jpg for post 4385

    Carmelo Anthony will suit up in Chicago tonight. Still in a Nuggets uniform, though. Luol Deng and Joakim Noah will still put on Bulls uniforms for the game. Denver will come to Chicago in a battle of two teams that have talked about a blockbuster deal but never got it done. Which frustrates a number…

  9. Video: Carmelo vs. Carmelo vs. Carmelo, ad infinitum

    Somewhere between Nike Basketball’s fantastic LeBron James “Rise” spot and Reebok’s mind-numbingly awful John Wall/Zigtech campaign is this commercial from Jordan Brand and Carmelo Anthony: . . I’m not sure I quite understand how the current slogan, “DO WHATEVER IT TAKES,” ties in (I guess it’s because in this game, Melo has to literally do…

  10. Game of the Night: Dallas’ defense isn’t all that, but it’s good enough

    Nov 4, 2010, 2:24 AM EDT

    CAnthony_miss

    Dallas came into Wednesday night with the second best defense in the NBA. It’s true. We didn’t believe it either but they are giving up just 90 points per 100 possessions. Which is damn good. (The Heat are tops, by the way). Of course the reality was they had earned that against the Bobcats, Clippers…

  11. Bill Walton: “Carmelo does not have what it takes to be the great player”

    Bill Walton and top basketball statistician agree on something. Excuse me for a minute while I relocate myself to my underground bunker. New York Knicks fans are still living in the Carmelo Anthony fantasy land, picturing him and Amare Stoudemire as two-thirds of the powerhouse trio they need to return to glory in the East.…

  12. In case you thought Carmelo Anthony might change his mind… nope.

    Oct 28, 2010, 9:21 AM EDT

    Image (1) CAnthony_stares-thumb-250x140-17932.jpg for post 6271

    There were some in the Denver front office that held out hope once Carmelo Anthony got to Denver, once he got around George Karl and his teammates things would be different. If he just sat down with management things would change. He would smile, remember how much he loves it here and decide to sign…

  13. Someone wants to stay in Denver: George Karl would like an extension

    Oct 26, 2010, 10:19 AM EDT

    Image (1) anthony_Karl-thumb-250x181-21662.jpg for post 6222

    George Karl doesn’t care that Carmelo Anthony’s extension sits unsigned, he wants to stay in Denver. He told FanHouse he wants a multi-year deal. “I don’t like being a businessman,” Karl said in an interview Monday with FanHouse. “But, if that’s what I have to be, I will be.” “I’m going to live in Denver…

  14. Stoudemire tells teammates to forget about ‘Melo

    Oct 22, 2010, 10:05 AM EDT

    Stoudemire_knicks

    Amar’e Stoudemire went Rick Pitino yesterday. He told his team that Carmelo Anthony is not walking through that door. Chris Paul is not walking through that door. He used different words, but that was the sentiment. His sentiment may or may not be true a couple months from now, but is true about the season…

  15. Spike Lee helping Knicks’ play for Carmelo

    Oct 21, 2010, 8:08 PM EDT

    Image (1) spike_Lee-thumb-250x140-11321.jpg for post 1884

    The Knicks have once again stepped up their efforts to trade for Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony, and they’re getting some help from an unlikely source: director/superfan Spike Lee. Marc Berman of the New York Post has the report: The Knicks have risen from the dead and are back in the Carmelo Anthony hunt, thanks partly…

  16. Or maybe not… new report says ‘Melo to Knicks has “no legs,” Nets still frontrunners

    Oct 20, 2010, 10:16 PM EDT

    Image (1) anthony_thumbsup-thumb-250xauto-21270.jpg for post 4385

    UPDATE 10:16 PM: It may be a couple months — specifically after Dec. 15 — before Anthony does get traded. So make yourself comfortable. Dec. 15 is when players signed over the summer as free agents can be traded, so the pool of people that could be traded for Anthony expands that day and the…

  17. Knicks fans, do you realize with ‘Melo you get a lot of contested jumpers?

    Oct 20, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    Image (1) CAnthony_stares-thumb-250x140-17932.jpg for post 6271

    Knicks fans are dreaming of Carmelo Anthony like children at Christmas — a top forward to put along side Amar’e Stoudemire and form two-thirds of the dynasty needed to beat the Heat and bring Willis Reed-like glory back to Madison Square Garden. Except, can Anthony really do that? No doubt he can put points up…

  18. Coach Jim Boeheim in lockstep with Carmelo’s PR team

    Oct 17, 2010, 12:57 AM EDT

    meloboeheim

    Coach Jim Boeheim has Melo’s back. The former Syracuse star won a national championship for his coach back in the day, and his coach is supportive of the star as rumors continue to swirl about his eventual destination. There’s a subtext in his comments that deserves consideration. Let’s go to the tape, New York Daily…

  19. Carmelo still wants to be traded… but not to Clippers or 76ers

    Oct 15, 2010, 9:37 AM EDT

    Anthony_Kaman

    All’s quiet on the Carmelo Anthony trade front. And Anthony is not happy about that, according to a Denver Post source. You couldn’t tell it on the court — he scored 30 and was one assist shy of a triple-double against the Clippers Thursday — but he wants out. So long as out isn’t to…

  20. Nuggets hire former Golden State GM Pete D’Alessandro as consultant

    Oct 14, 2010, 6:40 PM EDT

    Image (1) nuggets-logo1-thumb-250x187-13135.jpg for post 2397

    The Nuggets have a couple of young bucks running their front office. There is Masai Ujiri, who got hired in the general manager role this summer (even though the formal title is vice president of basketball operations, he’s still a GM). But he answers to the guy with the ultimate power, soon-to-be-owner Josh Kronke, who…

  21. Report: Andre Miller brought in to now-dead Melo trade talks

    Oct 10, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    millertrade

    This is Vescey-time, so get your grain of salt ready. The “notable” writer for the New York Post reports today that during the final stages of the four-team deal for Carmelo Anthony to be shipped to the Nets, the Blazers were involved in talks. Vescey reports that Charlotte was swapped out with Portland, with Portland…

  22. What George Karl really told Carmelo Anthony

    Oct 8, 2010, 10:12 PM EDT

    Image (1) anthony_Karl-thumb-250x181-21662.jpg for post 6222

    A few days into training camp, George Karl and Carmelo Anthony had a sit down that has been the focus of a lot of speculation. What exactly did Karl say. He opened up about that a little more on 104.3 The Fan in Denver the other day (transcript by Sports Radio Interviews). Karl is a…

  23. Denver sends scout to watch Derrick Favors, but no trade movement on ‘Melo yet

    Oct 8, 2010, 10:38 AM EDT

    Image (5) Favors_rookie.jpg for post 3738

    The holding pattern on the Carmelo Anthony trade front continues. Denver is asking too much. Anthony will only go to a couple of locations. Other teams are tired of playing this silly game. So we sit and wait for somebody, somewhere to come to their senses. But it should be noted that Denver had a…

  24. NBA Preview: Denver Nuggets

    Oct 7, 2010, 12:51 PM EDT

    nuggets_huddle

    Last season: 53-29, tied them for the four seed in the West, but without George Karl on the sidelines (due to cancer treatments) they got bumped off in six games by a Mehmet Okur-less Jazz team. Head Coach: George Karl is back after missing the second half of last season ad the playoffs battling throat…

  25. Report: Nuggets find market drying up for huge Carmelo Anthony deal

    Oct 6, 2010, 10:40 PM EDT

    The Nuggets are asking a lot for Carmelo Anthony in a trade: good young players and draft picks for the future, enough established talent to keep them in the playoffs now, plus cap relief that keeps them below the luxury tax. And a date with Scarlett Johansson. And a DeLorean that can travel through time.…
