Carmelo Anthony Back to Being Unstoppable Scorer, Which Could Be Bad News for Knicks

If Carmelo Anthony were to describe his game, he might sound a lot like Liam Neeson in Taken: “I have a very particular set of skills.” Anthony has been consistently great at one thing since he entered the league. He scores. Anthony has averaged at least 20 points per game in all 10 of his NBA seasons, and in his last three games, he has averaged 29.7 points. That could be very...

POTD 11/25/12: Kris Humphries on Meyers Leonard

Meyers Leonard: On behalf of the league and its players, Kris Humphries would like to formally welcome you to the NBA… Meyers will have to learn to make this sort of rotation a split second sooner in order to sufficiently protect the rim at the NBA level.  He did the right thing here, he was simply a tad bit slow… and if the rookie had been on time then we could’ve had a...
