Carmelo Anthony has turned some heads already early in this season. At one point, he said he could not wait for free agency.

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.

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.

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...
