The Victory Formation:
Happy Monday to all. Lebron was officially named as the Most Valuable Player. We all know this was imminent and likely. What was the question is whether he will be the first unanimous one. Unfortunately, he wasn’t. He was close, though, as he snagged all but one first-place vote. The Akron native thought it was a NY-based person who gave the dissenting vote, since that lone vote went to Carmelo Anthony. However, it was Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe who volunteered that he was the dissenter, explaining his decision in his column. He felt kind of embarrassed to be the lone guy who went against the grain. He said that he was anticipating others to stump for Melo, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul. Keep in mind that the NBA never divulges which voter cast his vote (unless the voter himself shares his ballot). It’s easy to nitpick his decision, especially after the brickfest the ‘Cuse alum threw at the Celtics and against the Pacers. But the same theory kind of applies to how J.R. Smith won the 6th Man of the Year. He probably was won over by that huge Knick stretch near the end of the season. He [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
This has made me sick to my stomach all year long. Knicks fans, which happen to be the worst kind in the NBA, have continually bragged about how great their team is. Some even think they have a chance to take down the Heat, which may be more ridiculous than Carmelo stealing a first place MVP vote from LeBron. To start off, I will give credit where it is due, a 54-28 record along...
The New York Knicks got a strong performance out of Carmelo Anthony as they thumped the Indiana Pacers 105-79 in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Anthony scored 32 points and New York put the contest away with a 36-4 second half run, which lifted them into a 1-1 tie.
Iman Shumpert chipped in with 15 points and Raymond Felton put up 14 as New York fought...
Well it seems like the people of Boston have recovered from the bombing tragedy that shocked the city some weeks ago, and are ready to reclaim their antagonistic status in pro sports.
During the first quarter of Game 6 of the Boston Celtics first round playoff match up against the New York Knicks, the fans at TD Bank Garden, joined in the unified taunting of Carmelo Anthony, by...
It was widely expected that LeBron James would become the first unanimous NBA MVP this season. However, much like when the same was thought about Shaquille O'Neal back in 2000, he came up one vote short.
That one vote went to Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks (who came in third behind Kevin Durant and of course LeBron).
Being the curious bunch that we are, the world...
Carmelo Anthony did not have a "hot spot" on the floor against the Celtics.
The New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers will renew their postseason rivalry beginning with Game 1 on Sunday at 3:30 ET on ABC.
This marks the seventh postseason meeting all-time between the Pacers and Knicks. The teams split the previous six meetings, 3-3.
The interesting thing about this matchup...
While folks worry about the 1 MVP vote that went to Carmelo Anthony - the Post nails it with STINKO DE MELO (and, not -- that doesn't refer to Melanoma Monday).

Le Batard really loves Miami. Which makes this weird.
Dan Le Batard didn't vote for LeBron James for NBA MVP: deadsp.in/mRNt1SL

Ok so when it broke this afternoon that LeBron received 120 out of 121 votes for NBA MVP, a witch hunt started to figure out who the hell voted for Carmelo Anthony.
Now we know.
It was the Miami...
There are few things that I enjoy more than poster dunks and during tonight’s Pacers/Knicks game two, Carmelo Anthony threw down a rather nasty dunk.
It happened in the third quarter of play as Anthony got past David West and put down a nasty two-handed stuff in the face of Pacers forward Jeff Pendergraph:
MIAMI (AP) -- The writer who did not choose LeBron James of the Miami Heat as the NBA's Most Valuable Player believes Carmelo Anthony "meant more to his team" this season.
Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe says Anthony made the New York Knicks relevant again by leading them to their first division title in nearly two decades. Washburn's explanation was published...
The New York Knicks blew out the Indiana Pacers 105-79 on Tuesday night, evening their second round NBA playoff series at 1-1. Both teams looked wildly different than they did in Game 1, and no one played better than Knicks star Carmelo Anthony.
The 28-year-old Anthony scored 32 points, grabbed nine rebounds, dished out three assists and snagged two steals while adding one sick dunk...
New series, same old story. You can finesse the narrative however you want, it boils down to the cold hard facts: Carmelo Anthony's name may as well be Buck, and he comes to chuck. If he's hitting, the Knicks are reeeeally hard to beat (he was basically NBA Jams "On FIRE" for his 10 games in April, averaging 36.9 ppg on 53.6% shooting, including a mind melting...
(Eds: Adds details and quotes. With AP Photos.) By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Basketball Writer Talk is cheap in these NBA playoffs, and it seems as if everyone wants in on the act.
As the stakes grew in the first round, the venom being spewed became ever more toxic. Superstars are jawing at bench players. Reserves are picking fights with superstars. Coaches are accusing opponents of being...
Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat
Game 1 -- 7 p.m./TNT
LeBron James was quite clearly MVP.
There really was no doubt about it. When I was on with 103.7 The Game in Lafayette, La., on Friday, they asked me if you could make any argument to vote for anyone aside from LeBron James. I told him you could make an argument for Carmelo Anthony perhaps . . . but it was not a good one...
