Found May 08, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Following last night's Game 2 win over the Pacers, Carmelo Anthony had this to say about the Gary Washburn voting him for MVP instead of LeBron "scandal."  Via the New York Daily News: “As far as the guy in Boston, I don’t know why he catches so much flak for that. He has the right to vote for whoever he want. LeBron won the MVP. Why is everybody so mad that he didn’t win it unanimously? . . . Thank you.” After shooting 50% (13-26 on Tuesday) for the first time in 8 playoff games, Anthony probably thinks he should be the MVP.  Over the previous 4 contests Carmelo was a combined 35-110, good for 31.8%.

The New York Knicks Are Overrated

This has made me sick to my stomach all year long. Knicks fans, which happen to be the worst kind in the NBA, have continually bragged about how great their team is.

To start off, I will give credit where it is due, a 54-28 record along...

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?

LeBron...

 Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat Game 1 -- 7 p.m./TNT LeBron James was quite clearly MVP. There really was no doubt about it. When I was on with 103.7 The Game in Lafayette, La., on Friday, they asked me if you could make any argument to vote for anyone aside from LeBron James.
