Carmelo Anthony says he been too passive during fourth quarters

Carmelo Anthony has never been shy about getting shots up throughout his career. He’s a great scorer who isn’t going to change at this point in his career. After last night’s game though, he said maybe he is being a too passive in the 4th quarter of games this season: “For myself, maybe I’m second-guessing myself as well,” Anthony said Monday after the Knicks’ practice...

Carmelo Anthony struggles from the field in loss

Carmelo Anthony has not been the cold-blooded scoring assassin he was to start out last season. Through three games, Anthony is averaging 21.0 points on just 37.7 percent shooting. After missing the game-winner in Chicago Thursday, Anthony started Sunday versus Minnesota 1-of-7 before heating up briefly to help a Knicks comeback that fell short. He finished with 22 points but shot...

Carmelo Anthony admits he’s been “passive”

The New York Knicks have started the season off 1-2 through their first three games, including a tough 82-81 loss to the Chicago Bulls. A game that came down to Derrick Rose making an impossible, late-game floater to put the Knicks on ice. So far, Carmelo Anthony, has given Knicks’ faithful less than they normally expect from Melo late in games. Carmelo only has 15 points and no...

Carmelo Anthony drains buzzer-beating three pointer against Bobcats

As previously noted on That NBA Lottery Pick, we love buzzer beaters and earlier tonight, Carmelo Anthony decided to show off his deep range for one against the Charlotte Bobcats.

Carmelo Anthony Says Knicks Can’t Go to a “Dark Place”

Melo does know that JR Smith is coming back, so it might only get darker for the Knicks. Melo coming off his 32 points on 28 shots and 2 assists performance in a loss to the Bobcats had this to say. “I believe we’ll get out of this. We’ve got to remain positive. It’s easy to go into a dark place right now,” Anthony said after shooting 10-for-28 against the Bobcats. “It’s...

Bobcats-Knicks Preview

Carmelo Anthony attributes the New York Knicks' early deficits during their slump to being unsure of themselves on the offensive end of the floor, causing miscommunication that is leading to errors. They'll look to get on the same page and end a two-game slide Tuesday night against the Charlotte Bobcats, who are looking to avoid an 18th consecutive road loss. The Knicks...

Charles Barkley: Amar’e Stoudemire has ‘lost his talent’

Hall of Famer and television basketball analyst Charles Barkley says the New York Knicks are in deep trouble with Amar’e Stoudemire. Barkley made his comments on ESPN New York 98.7, a day after the Knicks lost to the Charlotte Bobcats, and on the same day the team learned that Tyson Chandler will be sidelined 4-6 weeks with a non-displaced fracture of the right fibula. “You...

Kroenke Wants Nuggets To Remain Patient To Evaluate Current Roster

The Denver Nuggets have undergone a lot of upheaval over the past few months, losing Masai Ujiri to the Toronto Raptors while firing George Karl. That followed the Nuggets' decision to trade Carmelo Anthony in 2011. "The hard part of pro sports is staying patient," Josh Kroenke said in a rare sit-down interview. "We need to stay patient enough to evaluate what...

Knicks' worst-case scenario worse than you think

I really want to believe that the New York Knicks can’t possibly miss the playoffs in the top-heavy but still eminently shallow Eastern Conference even if the freshly injured Tyson Chandler misses a full six weeks. I want to believe it for the Knicks’ sake. I want to believe it because the mood could otherwise get really dark in one of my favorite buildings on Earth. Really...

Grant Hill: “I didn’t mind guarding LeBron, Melo and KD, but Kobe used to give me problems”

Now that he’s retired, he can speak the truth. In an interview with Bleacher Report to promote the return of “Inside Stuff”, Grant Hill revealed that while he didn’t mind guarding guys like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant was the one player who truly used to give him “problems”: Toughest player to guard: ”Now that I’m retired, I can probably...

Kenneth’s Thoughts on the Knicks Loss to the Wolves

By Kenneth Teape Minnesota Timberwolves vs. New York Knicks Post Game Recap The Knicks have no one to blame tonight other than themselves for the 109-100 loss at Madison Square Garden Sunday night. The Knicks were blitzed by the T’Wolves in the first quarter, falling behind 40-19 by the time the second quarter was starting courtesy of a 34-5. The Knicks showed some heart and fought...

Still early, but Knicks are a mess

It is the fourth game of the season, four out of 82, and logic insists — logic demands — that it is too early to pass judgment on the Knicks, too early to attach too much meaning to a three-game losing streak, too early to do much of anything. Four out of 82. This is still the overture. Only it doesn’t feel that way, does it? “We’re not getting it done right now,” Carmelo...

Are the Knicks Too Melo?

By Andy “Peoplez” Singleton So much talk swirled in the off-season about the New York Knicks and all of the changes that were made to enhance the team.
