Knicks general manager Donnie Walsh insisted that the Carmelo Anthony trade was his call and downplayed any Isiah Thomas involvement in a conversation with Mike Francesa on WFAN Tuesday.
It’s a Tuesday morning Melo party here on the Boomer & Carton morning extravaganza, as news broke last last night that the Knicks finally managed to pry Carmelo Anthony away from the Nuggets.
Whether you’re at home or stuck at work on Presidents Day, no doubt you’ll have one eye watching the Carmelo Anthony circus.
East vs. West was overshadowed by New York vs. New Jersey during All-Star weekend. And even though Kobe Bryant won the MVP, Carmelo Anthony made the most headlines.
Prokhorov told CNBC on Sunday he had a “fantastic” meeting with Anthony on Saturday night. The Russian billionaire had pulled the Nets out of talks last month, and even after they were recently renewed he said he originally had no plans to meet with Anthony during the All-Star weekend.
The Knicks released a statement Sunday attempting to shoot down reports that their negotiations with the Denver Nuggets had been taken out of the hands of team president Donnie Walsh
Isiah Thomas was given every chance on Tuesday night to deny his reported relationship as an unofficial consultant to Knicks owner James Dolan. Isiah instead played it coy.
Donnie Walsh doesn’t know if he is wanted back by the Knicks, and says now is not the time to ask.
At the risk of redundancy…the New York Knicks are a good basketball team. Just ask the San Antonio Spurs.
Yes, the Knicks lost. No, there are no moral victories. But the Knicks play like they give a damn. And now we give a damn.
Donnie Walsh, president of basketball operations for the Knicks, joined Boomer & Carton Friday to discuss Isiah Thomas’ recent comments and the Knicks’ play of late.
A year ago, Isiah Thomas was asked more than a few times about how long he planned to remain coaching at Florida International. The same question keeps coming these days, too.
We knew Isiah Thomas was delusional. Some of the stuff he has said in the past has defied logic and he continued that with his recent remarks.
Superstar forward Carmelo Anthony has reportedly told the Denver Nuggets that he will not sign a proposed 3-year, $65 million contract extension.
Isiah Thomas will not be returning to the New York Knicks after all. Thomas said Wednesday in a statement he was declining a position as a consultant with the franchise he ran for 4 1/2 years because it may not be legal.
