In this day and age of extreme technology, there are people who believe the government, your employer, and anyone else with skills is listening to your conversations. We’ve heard rumors of the Saints taping what goes on in the opposing teams press box for an advantage.  What happens though when the guy that signs your checks may have you on surveillance, and you can’t figure out why. The Star-Ledger reporter Dave D”Alessandro is reporting that knowledgeable source believe New York Knicks owner James Dolan has spies that record every word Carmelo Anthony utters on the court. D”Alessandro: “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.” The report also stated that Dolan may be doing it so he can prove to the NBA that there are guys on opposing teams going out of their way to goat Melo and antagonize him every chance they get. That might be true, and Carmelo needs to do a better job of ignoring negativity and focusing on his job.
