That NBA Lottery Pick:
Just when you thought that you knew everything about New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, this little gem comes to light.

More Melo:“I listen to Frank Sinatra a lot. I love Frank, man.Keeps me calm. I’m already a mellow guy, but it keeps me super calm.”

I CAN'T HEAR YOU
Carmelo Anthony says he has been able to focus this year by completely tuning out newspapers and television and just playing the game.

It’s such an exciting time to be a New York Knickerbockers fan. The Knicks hold a 2-0 lead over the Celtics in the 1st round, J.R. Smith was recently named NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year, and Carmelo Anthony is playing the best and most fearless basketball of his career. These things have directly led to the success of this year’s team. Even Coach Woodson...
They pulled out all the stops in this one. They went to extreme lengths and magnificent efforts to rally the home team as they came into Boston down two games to nothing but it wasn’t enough to stop the new and improved Knicks. The Knicks were swept by the Celtics just two years ago and I’m sure its still fresh in the minds of the Knicks that were on the team that year. No doubt...
Knicks vs Celtics: ABC 1PM
Today in Boston the New York Knicks have the chance to sweep the Boston Celtics and head home for as long rest until the beginning of Round 2 of the NBA playoffs against the Hawks or the Pacers. Today the New York Knicks will be without the services of J.R. Smith, who was suspended by the league, due to a flagrant 2 foul against Jason Terry in game 3.
The drama of Phil Jackson’s next job is back in the news. I guess fishing in Montana on a beautiful day with an accomplished career and money in the bank is not Phil’s idea of retirement! The living legend is interested in coming back to the bench or a rumored front office position with an NBA franchise. Who will take the bait lure him out of his fishing waders?
Knicks power forward, Amar’e Stoudemire who had been sidelined for six weeks after undergoing surgery on his right knee has recently stated that his return to the team is possible for the second round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs. With the Knicks’ current 2-0 series lead over the Boston Celtics, it appears that this could likely become a reality Coach Woodson and the Knicks could...
BOSTON — Carmelo Anthony was so reserved in complimenting Raymond Felton that the Knicks point guard, seated less than two feet away, could not help laughing. Felton had just finished dicing up the Celtics in a decisive playoff victory, and the best Anthony could manage to say was that his teammate’s 15-point, 10-assist performance was “what he’s supposed to do.”

Knicks 90 Celtics 76
The Knicks manhandled the Boston Celtics in game three tonight, winning by a final score of 90-76. Coming into the series, the Knicks were known as a team that can live and die by the three-point shot. The Knicks were a team capable of scoring 110 points at any time, and while they are still very capable of that, their identity has changed...
Down 2-0, Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics return home tonight to take on Carmelo Anthony's New York Knicks. So far this series the second half hasn't been too kind to the Celtics as they've managed to score just 48 combined points between each game's third and fourth quarters. While Boston has played really well in spurts, they've yet to put together a complete...
Two games into the first-round matchup between the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks, and the most talked about players are Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith and Jeff Green.
That wasn't always the case. Around the turn of the century, two other players, who are both involved in this series, ruled the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference.
