  1. George Karl calls Carmelo bad at defense, Carmelo is unhappy

    Feb 25, 2011, 5:28 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    In an interview taped before last night’s Celtics/Nuggets game on TNT, George Karl was enthusiastic about how the new-look Nuggets would be playing defense now that they didn’t have to “handle what Carmelo gives you” on the defensive end. Anthony apparently noticed, and tweeted the following last night: Damn, are u serious. Some people never…

  2. The Nets have a cornerstone, now the building starts

    Feb 25, 2011, 3:58 PM EST

    Deron Williams presser

    There is — for the first time in recent memory — a palpable buzz about a New Jersey Nets game Friday. That’s what bringing in a superstar can do. And the Nets got a superstar in Deron Williams. Knicks fans flip out at the idea, but the Nets got the better player, they bested the…

  3. Poll: What team helped itself the most with trades?

    Feb 25, 2011, 9:42 AM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v New York Knicks

    For weeks leading up, everyone we talked to was telling us it was going to be a quiet trade deadline. The new CBA coming, the bottleneck caused by the Carmelo Anthony deal, there were a bunch of reasons nothing much was going to happen. Then BOOM! With the force of a Blake Griffin dunk the…

  4. ‘Melo does what ‘Melo does, but old guy Toney Douglas saves Knicks

    Feb 24, 2011, 1:48 AM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v New York Knicks

    Knicks fans, this is what you’re going to get from Carmelo Anthony. He had 27 points and one assist. He shot 10 of 25 on the night and you’re saying, “He had a poor shooting night.” Not really, he had a pretty average shooting night for himself — he is shooting 45.2 percent from the…

  5. What to Watch: Melo Debuts for the Knicks

    Feb 23, 2011, 6:55 PM EST

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    After many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many months, Carmelo Anthony has finally been traded to the New York Knicks. He’ll debut tonight beside Amar’e Stoudemire against the Bucks in front of a sold-out crowd which will be buzzing like arguably never before.  But what exactly should we be watching for, exactly? Here are…

  6. Carmelo is in New York! (And Dolan wants you to know Isiah is not)

    Feb 23, 2011, 6:36 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony James Dolan

    New York is buzzing over Carmelo Anthony. Like first date with Minka Kelly kind of buzzing. They are over-the-top giddy and can’t believe they landed this. Anthony himself is trying to play it cool while still getting the lay of the land in what can be the unpredictable world of the New York Knicks. Like…

  7. Chauncey Billups reminds us of the human side of trades

    Feb 23, 2011, 4:47 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    When an NBA trade gets made, we start breaking it down on the court. Did the Nets get better? What do the Jazz do next? Same with the Nuggets and the Knicks and everyone else. But while we break down if Chauncey Billups is a good fit in the Knicks offense, Billups has to go…

  8. Knicks may not think it’s a rivalry, but Nets do and they won round one

    Feb 23, 2011, 12:29 PM EST

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    Mention a Knicks/Nets rivalry to a Knicks fan and they laugh a dismissive little laugh. There is no rivalry — the Knicks play in Manhattan and the Nets are still in Newark, the swamps of Jersey. Even when they come to Brooklyn, that’s not on the island. The  Knicks dismiss the rivalry out of hand.…

  9. Video: Amar’e Stoudemire talks Carmelo Anthony

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:42 AM EST

    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. The Knickerbocker Empire got its prize in Melo, but the real battle begins now

    Feb 22, 2011, 2:45 PM EST

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    Congratulations, Mr. Dolan! You’ve landed your prize! You have two, count ‘em two, stars to fill the seats in Madison Square Garden. Carmelo Anthony joins Amar’e Stoudemire for the Knicks and the star power is through the roof now in New York. You have successfully acquired a second NBA All-Star, which is difficult to do…

  11. Nuggets plan to keep Felton

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:25 PM EST

    image

    Carmelo Anthony’s move to the Big Apple may be taking up all the headline real estate, but Raymond Felton’s departure is also quite notable. He was neither a star nor a New York establishment, but like former-Knicks, now-Nuggets Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler, Felton is a quality player and a legitimate starter. However, the Anthony…

  12. Carmelo Anthony has his legacy in his hands in New York

    Feb 22, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Carmelo Anthony gets mentioned as one of the game’s elite scorers. As he should. Few players can average 25 points a season consistently. Few players in the league can fill it up — from anywhere on the court, creating their own shot — like Anthony. He doesn’t do it terribly efficiently (his shooting percentage is…

  13. Knicks not contenders with ‘Melo, but they have hope

    Feb 22, 2011, 2:29 AM EST

    FIBA Semifinals: USA v Puerto Rico

    Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. —Shawshank Redemption Today the New York Knicks are not title contenders. They got their man — Carmelo Anthony has been acquired to go with Amar’e Stoudemire. But they are still a long way away from the goal.…

  14. Winderman: ‘Melo trade means Knicks now target Chris Paul, Dwight Howard

    Feb 21, 2011, 11:31 PM EST

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    Don’t even think about exhaling. The trade of Carmelo Anthony from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks does not, finally, put the focus back on the court. Not in today’s NBA, or, more specifically, in tomorrow’s NBA. Think these past months were lessons in abject cruelty in Denver? Then consider what now follows…

  15. Carmelo Anthony traded to Knicks. Finally.

    Feb 21, 2011, 10:26 PM EST

    carmelo anthony

    Carmelo Anthony has been traded to the New York Knicks. Finally. A saga that started this summer when Anthony and his representatives told Denver officials he would opt out of his contract and leave as a free agent if not traded — and that he would only sign an extension with the Knicks — has…

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

    Feb 21, 2011, 8:41 PM EST

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

    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…

  17. Report: Nets ending pursuit of Carmelo Anthony. Or Not.

    Feb 21, 2011, 3:36 PM EST

    NBA All Star Game Basketball

    It still appears likely the Knicks will get the big prize. But whether or not the Nets are still fighting for Anthony is up for debate. Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix sent out this tweet Monday afternoon: Source says it appears Nets are “throwing in the towel” on pursuit of Anthony. Al Iannazzone of the Bergen…

  18. If Melo goes to Knicks, Nuggets and Nets may do deal anyway

    Feb 21, 2011, 1:42 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    With all the talking the Nets and Nuggets have done in the last few months, it seems only just that they should do some kind of trade anyway. According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard (via twitter), the two sides would make a deal using the Knicks assets in a separate deal. Sources say NJ in talks…

  19. Report: Carmelo Anthony to give final answer to Nets Monday

    Feb 21, 2011, 10:39 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    More than seven months after the whole drama started, Carmelo Anthony is going to finally make a decision Monday. He is finally going to inform the Nets whether or not he would sign an extension with them, according to the New York Post. If Anthony will sign the three-year, $65 million extension with New Jersey…

  20. Deron Williams denies report he plans to go to New York

    Feb 21, 2011, 8:19 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    You knew this was coming on All-Star Sunday like you knew Kobe Bryant was going to try and win the MVP and Blake Griffin would dunk the ball. Deron Williams denied a report that he plans to follow Amar’e Stoudemire to New York after his contract expires. He denied it directly to Ken Berger of…

    Feb 21, 2011, 12:36 AM EST

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    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…

  22. Knicks issue statement clearly about Isiah Thomas (that nobody believes)

    Feb 20, 2011, 2:24 PM EST

    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…

  23. Report: Nets leave ‘Melo meeting “not confident,” but Knicks have own issues

    Feb 20, 2011, 9:52 AM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    The Carmelo Anthony trade saga is nearing its end — finally — but like a soap opera’s final episodes the drama just seems to ramp up for the event. Here is where we stand Sunday morning. Anthony and Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov broke break and had a shot of, um, water at a Los Angeles…

  24. Report: Deron Williams tells associates he wants to go to New York

    Feb 20, 2011, 8:00 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    It’s news that will make you bang your head against a wall, because another cycle is starting before the Melodrama has even ended. It is a report that by Sunday night you can be certain Deron Williams will have denied strenuously multiple times. But according to Ken Berger at CBSSports, Williams is talking about getting…
