Carmelo Anthony expressed reluctance to the Knicks about their pursuit of J.R. Smith, according to a source.
BEST OF MAXIM
PAY THE MAN
J.R. Smith hasn't exactly made the best impression since signing with the Knicks. He can now add a fine from the NBA to his resume.
The Knicks' management reportedly did not get Carmelo Anthony's seal of approval before bringing in J.R. Smith when he returned last month from China.
The Knicks have lost six in a row, 8 of their last 10, and they looks like a mess again. The New York Post reported after Monday’s loss that Carmelo Anthony and Mike D’Antoni were clashing, and they took it a step further a day later, saying Melo wants out if D’Antoni isn’t fired.
According to the Post, Melo has asked for the Knicks to trade him before Thursday’s deadline...

J.R. Smith has so far struggled to fit in with the Knicks.

It’s pretty simple for anyone watching the last few weeks of Knickerbocker basketball. They’ve just got to admit it to themselves: Carmelo Anthony is not helping. In news that many could have anticipated, he’s a terrible fit for a Mike D’Antoni offense. It’s about ball movement. He, is not about such things. And then, there’s the defensive end.
I'm not going to sugar coat this one. We're gonna lose. We should lose to the Bulls who have the BEST record in the Association. Could we win? Sure. Any team can win on any given night. But I just don't think it's in the cards for us tonight. When a good team gets up to play us we know the results (see Miami game).
Unless Melo finally gets his...
The Knicks' fantastic February is forgotten, replaced by a March meltdown.
They are back to playing the way they were in January, before Jeremy Lin's emergence. New York has lost six in a row for the second time this season and is in danger of missing the playoffs.
Even if they regroup and make the postseason, history indicates they won't be a threat to advance. According...
