Found May 08, 2013 on Rumors and Rants:
The New York Knicks blew out the Indiana Pacers 105-79 on Tuesday night, evening their second round NBA playoff series at 1-1. Both teams looked wildly different than they did in Game 1, and no one played better than Knicks star Carmelo Anthony. The 28-year-old Anthony scored 32 points, grabbed nine rebounds, dished out three assists and snagged two steals while adding one sick dunk. With just more than two minutes remaining in the third quarter and the game tied at 64, Anthony got the ball on the left side of the floor. He promptly drove by Pacers forward David West, rose up and posterized Jeff Pendergraph, who was also charged with a foul. Anthony also made the subsequent free throw. Enjoy the video after the jump. Possibly the best part of the above video is the nod and fist-pump of approval from former Knicks great Patrick Ewing, who was in attendance. That dunk seemed to change the momentum of the game, as the Knicks went on to blow Indiana out.

Carmelo Anthony: Why is everybody mad LeBron James wasn’t unanimous MVP?

Who cares if Gary Washburn voted for Carmelo Anthony?

LeBron James was named the league's MVP, and if it weren't for the Boston Globe's Gary Washburn, he would've been the first ever unanimous MVP. Heard about this yet?
