This is going to be a time-consuming and painful process with the Knicks, and Carmelo Anthony is finally realizing that.
The guys discussed the notion of Melo taking his money and running – perhaps to Chicago – as the Knicks continue to spiral downwards in spectacular fashion.
Let me start by saying I’m sorry. And then let me tell you why this Knicks debacle is your doing.
Could it get any worse without the injured Carmelo Anthony? Well, yes.
December 15 is coming, and Jackson was wise to say he wouldn’t make a move for the sake of making a move. But make no mistake about it: Change is coming, whether it’s now or after the season.
Jackson still has plenty of time to turn this disaster around, but the ‘Bockers look to be in worse shape than ever — both on the court and off.
Things could go from bad to worse for the slumping Knicks. Melo says a left knee injury that has been bothering him much of this season isn’t getting better.
The word has been on my mind since Monday, when I read a story about which NFL teams are most hated in each state. Every once in a while we need a reality check.
Kemba Walker drove for a left-handed layup as time expired to lift Charlotte to a 103-102 win over the New York Knicks on Friday night, snapping the Hornets’ 10-game losing streak.
The Knicks let another winnable game slip through their fingers on Thursday night, and there were a lot of interesting storylines. Let’s go through them.
Carmelo Anthony ended a 4-for-19 night by missing a 3-pointer in the final seconds, as the Knicks dropped their sixth straight and fell to 4-16.
This is delicious. One day after I blast Carmelo Anthony for having a monolithic devotion to being rich rather than enriching his teammates, word slips out that his heart was truly divided.
At one point it looked as if the seven-time All-Star was going to join the contending Bulls. It turns out that a deal with Chicago was even closer than you probably thought. It nearly happened.
Not since Syracuse has Carmelo Anthony violated the personal space of a championship trophy. We hold every star’s feet to the championship fire and ire of his fans if he doesn’t win a title. Except with Melo.
The Knicks are off to an embarrassing 4-14 start, but their best player and leader is remaining calm and keeping his composure. At least publicly.
