The New York Knicks have been recording Carmelo Anthony during games, and the star forward says he is not bothered by it. Earlier in the week, we told you how team owner James Dolan had ordered someone to record every conversation Anthony has on the court. According to the NY Post, Dolan set up the audio technicians in response to ‘Melo being suspended for a game following his altercation with Kevin Garnett. Dolan apparently wants to have evidence of the things opposing players say to Anthony should another similar situation arise. Carmelo said he isn’t bothered by the decision, but he doesn’t think it is going to change anything. “I don’t care about the microphones,” he told The Post on Tuesday. “I wasn’t aware of it. I found out on the plane [ride]. I don’t think the mikes are going to stop what goes out on the court. But it was funny when I heard it. No, I wasn’t upset. Not at all.” There’s only one problem: everyone knows Anthony’s conversations are being recorded, including opposing players. Is anyone really dumb enough to say anything incriminating when they know there is going to be evidence that they said it? Perhaps that is the plan. If Dolan has an audio crew recording every exchange Carmelo has at Madison Square Garden for the rest of the season, maybe it will stop trash talkers like K.G. from telling his best player that his wife tastes like cereal. It’s an idea that just might be crazy enough to work. The post Carmelo Anthony on Knicks recording him: I thought it was funny, I wasn’t upset appeared first on Larry Brown Sports.
