New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony appreciates team owner James Dolan looking out for him. Dolan ordered that microphones be placed near the court in Madison Square Garden for last Friday's game against Chicago to record conversations going on around Anthony in an attempt to document any trash talking. ESPN.com reported this week that the Knicks weren't trying to spy on Anthony after his one-game suspension for an incident with Boston's Kevin Garnett. They wanted to see whether he was being baited. "I got an owner that looks out for me," Anthony said Wednesday in London, where the Knicks were preparing for Thursday's game against Detroit. "You can't beat that for an owner to try to protect their players, to protect his players. It just shows how much loyalty Mr. Dolan has." The NBA said there are no rules prohibiting the use of microphones near the court.
