New York Knicks
Having waited longer than he should have, the stink of his performance still lingering at Madison Square Garden, Carmelo Anthony appeared at last clad in black and wearing a smile as false and empty as his game.
The black stood for a funeral, but not the kind he and his tacky teammates had anticipated. It was a funeral for the idea Anthony has shed his postseason underachiever's skin. A funeral for the notion these Knicks would roll into the second round full of confidence and possibility. A funeral, most surely, for tact and good sense.
So let's start with that.
Before the game, Kenyon Martin had encouraged his teammates to arrive at the arena dressed in black for a Celtics "funeral." Perhaps these jokers should have remembered that two weeks ago bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon that killed three people, injured 264 people and damaged that city and this country. Perhaps they should have looked at Wednesday's newspapers and noted that three more men had...
BEST OF MAXIM
I think we have own answer on if Jordan Crawford said something about Carmelo Anthony’s wife LaLa (you can watch the video here). LaLa took to social media to deliver a message for Crawford.
Crawford is on the bench because he isn’t that good, not exactly a denial, but I understand what she is saying. There are certain lines you shouldn’t cross.
There are a lot of things...
It’s not surprising why it’s very hard for a team to come back from a 3-0 deficit in a seven-game series. In the simplest terms, regardless of the sport, the team that goes up 3-0 is usually good. And good teams generally don’t do a complete 360 and lose four straight games after winning three straight. Mediocre teams usually don’t give themselves the opportunity to blow...
HELL HATH NO FURY
Carmelo Anthony believes his wife has every right to be upset with everything that has happened, saying, "She always gets thrown into the mix of the Boston Celtics series."
Celtics fans broke out into a ‘Honey Nut Cheerios’ chant during the first quarter of Game 6 at the TD Garden between the Knicks-Celtics after Carmelo Anthony picked up his second foul.
Poor Carmelo Anthony.
He's taken so much abuse this season.
First Kevin Garnett told him his wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios. Or maybe he didn't.
Anyway, then Jordan Crawford most certainly said something else not so nice about Melo's wife.
Now, on top of all that. Melo's arm hurts.
"He yanked my arm out," Anthony said of Garnett. "It...
Back in January, Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett made the term “Honey Nut Cheerios” into a whole new thing after he spent some time trash-talking Carmelo Anthony about his wife, La La Vazquez.
Flash-forward to today, Celtics fans decided to serenade Carmelo with those exact words as he made his way to the Knicks bench area during game six of their first-round playoff series...
Carmelo Anthony has been in isolation on 44.7 percent of his offensive plays against the Boston Celtics.

In the regular season, Anthony was in isolation on 26 percent of Knicks’ plays that ended with a field goal attempt, free throw or turnover from the All-Star. He had a 41.8 field goal percentage on such plays, according to data compiled by ESPN Stats & Information.
As the New York Knicks continued to to choke away their 3-0 series lead during last night’s 92-86 loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 5, superfan and ESPN NBA “analysis” Bill Simmons decided it was time to poke fun at actor Matthew Modine on Twitter, who for years was a mainstay courtside for Knicks games: @billsimmons hey bill – I don’t know you. I’ve missed being at...
Tensions between the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks are really beginning to run high heading into Game 6 of their opening round playoff series. After Boston beat New York at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night, Carmelo Anthony and Jordan Crawford got into it near the bench and had to be separated by teammates.
It is unclear exactly what Crawford was saying to Anthony, but...
For those of you wondering, Boston Celtics guard Jordan Crawford didn’t play a single minute in game five against the New York Knicks but that didn’t start him from talking trash against some New York Knicks players.
After the horn sounded at Madison Square Garden, Crawford started jawing with Carmelo Anthony and Raymond Felton near the scorer’s table.
Thankfully for Jordan...
Not that this comes to a surprise, Carmelo Anthony’s wife LaLa, has gone to her Instagram account to respond to Jordan Crawford.
Love it LaLa. Let him know he’s nothin’ but a bench warmer.
The post LaLa Responds To Jordan Crawford appeared first on Total Sports Blog.
On Wednesday, Carmelo Anthony and his band of knuckleheads dressed in all black for the "funeral" of the Boston Celtics, their first-round playoff opponent, despite the tactlessness of such a gesture two weeks after the Boston Marathon bombings.
So today let's clad ourselves in green and cheer for the Celtics -- and for some karma to catch up with the Knicks.
