New York Knicks owner James Dolan is reportedly interested in getting an up-close look at how his biggest superstar carries himself on the court during games. How close? According to Dave D’Alessandro of the Star-Ledger, Dolan ordered audio technicians to record every word that Carmelo Anthony said during New York’s game against the Chicago Bulls on Friday night. Either by coincidence or not, it was the game after ‘Melo returned from serving a one-game suspension stemming from the altercation he had with Kevin Garnett. Two audio technicians were stationed at two corners of the court — one a few feet just behind the Knicks bench, the other diagonally opposite — and they were holding those umbrella-shaped contraptions known as parabola microphones, which fed the audio into a DAT recorder on the truck on the loading dock. These guys had one directive from Dolan: Record every syllable Carmelo Anthony utters and absorbs while he’s on the court and on the bench, the Madison Square Garden CEO ordered them, and send the tape directly to me. No one knows what Dolan’s motivation was behind the bizarre idea. D’Allesandro speculates that he could use the recordings to teach Anthony about controlling his temper on the court. He also wondered if they could be used to prove to the NBA that ‘Melo is a constant target of taunting from opposing players. In all likelihood, this is an in-house matter and the public will never know the details. That doesn’t make it any less fun to speculate. H/T Game On!
