    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    If at one time a statement can be no-brainer true and completely moot, this next sentence is it: Knicks owner James Dolan has promised team president Donnie Walsh he will not rehire Isiah Thomas to work for the Knicks, according to the New York Post. The report says that Dolan has become disillusioned with Thomas…

    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…

    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…

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

    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…

    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…

    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.…

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    In the last few days, nearly 10 percent of the players in the NBA got traded. Think about that. Apparently the NBA GMs have been watching their baseball counterparts too much. We won’t really know how all this will shake out for a few months, but what follows is our first impressions. And grades. We…

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

    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…

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:42 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    Everyone knew that Amar’e Stoudemire wanted Carmelo Anthony in New York with him. He had to play it cool with the media, but he wanted him. Now that Anthony will be a Knick — likely officially suiting up Wednesday night — Stoudemire is talking. And he is right — the two of them are going…

  10. 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.

    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 —…

  12. Carmelo Anthony is gone, who else is Denver likely to move

    Feb 22, 2011, 9:35 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony was just the first domino in Denver. His trade will be followed by host of moves in the next 48 hours — then again next summer — as virtually the entire roster gets overhauled. Denver has from a team that thought it had a chance to push the Lakers to one that is…

  13. Report: Nuggets coach George Karl likes the Knicks deal best

    Coaches often make the worst general managers. They are notoriously bad at structuring trades. Coaches fall in love with players they think give them the best chance of winning right now. GM’s need to think big picture. So not all that surprising that while the Nuggets brass prefers the promise of Derrick Favors and picks…

    It’s near the endgame — Carmelo Anthony himself said after the All-Star Game Sunday “The deadline is Thursday. Something has to happen” (via Ken Berger of CBSSports). But still the Knicks and Nuggets are fighting over the details right up to the end. Alan Hahn of Newsday had the conflicting reports. That starts with earlier…

    The Beacon Theater Joins MSG Entertainment

    We’ve told you about Isiah Thomas’ influence in efforts to bring Carmelo Anthony to the Knicks. The specter of a return of Thomas — just after the team spent two years climbing out of a hole Thomas dug for the organization — was enough to push the Knicks to release a rare joint statement to…

    Cavaliers Nuggets Basketball

    Carmelo Anthony spoke to the media for 20 minutes on Friday afternoon and was able to sound like an innocent bystander in his own trade drama. “I don’t know/out of my control,” was his mantra as he said nothing was in place. No meetings are set with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov or Knicks owner James…

    Feb 17, 2011, 8:44 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Knicks fans are in “Carmelo Anthony or bust” mode — they want him and they want him now. Get him and the Knicks win the title, the housing market will rebound, and the Dodo bird will return from extinction. Well, that’s what it sounds like on sports talk radio anyway. Knicks decision maker Donnie Walsh…

    Knicks fans have been clamoring for Donnie Walsh to just make the deal — doesn’t matter what the price is, the Knicks need Carmelo Anthony. Knicks fans are desperate. You still sure? According to Jonathan Abrams at the New York Times, the price is every starter not named Stoudemire. According to a Knicks official, Denver…

  23. Report: Nets, Blazers talking point guard swap: Andre Miller for Devin Harris

    Feb 17, 2011, 9:50 AM EDT

    Devin Harris, Zach Randolph, Tony Allen

    The New Jersey Nets have not been all that happy with Devin Harris of late. I’m not sure they should be — statistically he’s playing better than last season and this is what you get out of him most years. His points per game may be down (especially of late) but he is shooting less…

  24. Report: Nets back in mix, talking to Nuggets about ‘Melo

    Feb 16, 2011, 7:58 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    It just felt from the first minutes like this was going to happen. The New Jersey Nets and Denver Nuggets are talking Carmelo Anthony trade again, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo, the Bergen Record and ESPN’s Chris Broussard. One source described talks as “progressing” and said they have been ongoing between Denver and New…

  25. The other Carmelo Anthony trade wild card: Mark Cuban

    Feb 16, 2011, 12:35 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    There’s a lot of reasons we like Mark Cuban. He’s smart. He’s not afraid to buck the system. He’s accessible. He’s reasonably forthcoming (certainly in comparison to most owners). And he’s unpredictable. That unpredictability is one reason people don’t think the Mavericks are out of the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes. The Mavericks need a wing scorer,…
