Found January 15, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
This is getting pretty weird. Reports came out that Knicks Owner James Dolan had listening devices set up in the Garden to spy on Carmelo Anthony. Some people thought that was crazy and could never happen, but the Knicks are confirming it somewhat, but their reasoning might surprise you. Here is the report from Pro Basketball Talk. Owner James Dolan ordered Madison Square Garden technicians to place two microphones on opposite ends of the court, a move league sources told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard was put in place in order to protect Anthony. It is not clear whether the recordings will continue, but sources tell Broussard that any move to paint them as Dolan “spying” on Anthony is “flat-out wrong.” So, they aren’t spying on Melo they are protecting him because opposing players may hurt his feelings by saying his wife taste like Honey Nut Cheerios? We need answers…..
