Jim Boeheim Thinks Melo Would Have Left Knicks If Not for Phil Jackson

Jim Boeheim’s latest verbal foray into Carmelo Anthony’s free-agency decision is going to make Phil Jackson blush. The Syracuse head coach was exceedingly vocal leading up to Anthony’s free agency and recurrently admitted he wanted the All-Star forward to sign somewhere he could win. But Anthony signed in New York, where he’s not going to [...]

Coach K Says D-Rose is ‘One of the Best Guys in the Whole World’

What an NBA Division Re-Alignment Could Look Like

What an NBA Division Re-Alignment Could Look Like

August and the NBA don’t together. News is typically slow this time of year, leaving fans and scribes to look for topics of interest and note. When the Kevin Love rumors aren’t flowing and the San Antonio Spurs offense isn’t running like a well-oiled, time-tested machine, that’s a ridiculously hard task. Benny Kriefall of Minnesota [...]

Melo Wants to Be a Facilitator in Knicks’ New Offense

Melo Wants to Be a Facilitator in Knicks’ New Offense

All this time we thought Carmelo Anthony was born to score. We were wrong. He was really a point guard-hopeful trapped in the body of a forward, gifted with the offensive chops of an unabashed, inside-out, 20-plus-shots-per-night chucker. But after 11 years of shooting and scoring, more shooting and scoring, and more shooting and scoring [...]

Kobe Took Anthony Davis ‘Under His Wing’ At 2012 Olympics

Kobe Took Anthony Davis ‘Under His Wing’ At 2012 Olympics

Kobe Bryant and Anthony Davis couldn’t seem more different off the court. One is a ruthless competitor, a vociferous murderer of rivals and rims, and championship-ring-bearing lunatic…in a good way. The other is a silent, rather stoic and shy workhorse with the versatility and wingspan necessary to do just about anything he wants. They’re different. [...]

Pacers Interested in Trading for Greg Monroe

Pacers Interested in Trading for Greg Monroe

Losing Paul George has apparently clouded the Indiana Pacers’ sense of logical and illogical. According Detroit Sports 105.1′s Matt Dery, the Pacers are still shopping Roy Hibbert and have their sights sets on the Detroit Pistons’ Greg Monroe: This is—one of my favorite, most frequently used words incoming—weird. Some people might even call it stupid, [...]

Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Proving Thin is In for NBA Stars

Ever have one of those days where you wake up, look in the mirror and then, with a look of complete and utter disgust on your face, whisper to yourself, “Man, I wish I looked more like Kevin Durant?” No? Oh, OK. Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James might have. Both NBA superstars have slimmed down [...]
