Knicks veteran Carmelo Anthony denies anger over draft pick


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2015) Knicks star Carmelo Anthony has responded to reports that he was furious at his team's selection of Kristaps Porzingis in the first round of the Thursday draft.

Anthony wrote on Instagram that he is "far from upset" with team president Phil Jackson and claimed that Porzingis is "a steal."

The issue is age. The 19-year-old Porzingis might not be prepared to contribute for a while. The aging Anthony is hoping his team can reach contending status as soon as possible, but Jackson has made it clear that it's not likely to happen next season.


Report: Knicks' Carmelo Anthony unhappy with draft moves


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Anthony reportedly called former teammate Tim Hardaway Jr. after the Knicks traded him away to voice his displeasure with the moves team president Phil Jackson made.

Anthony, who turned 31 years old in May, feels like Jackson should make moves that will help the team immediately and not bank on deals that will only help years down the line.

"As far [the predicted time frame] goes, it's going very well," Anthony said

(4/21/2015) Knicks president Phil Jackson spoke to the media Tuesday and said forward Carmelo Anthony needed to push himself physically in order to play in the All-Star Game, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Knicks' Carmelo Anthony ahead of schedule, should be back by June


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony said that he was ahead of schedule in his rehab from left knee surgery in February, per the New York Post

Anthony said, "I’ll be ready in June. I’ll probably be ready a little before June, back to my regular program and working out. … The rehab is going extremely well. I feel very positive where I will be about next training camp. I’m actually excited about the progress I’ve made in a short period of time." 


Knicks' Carmelo Anthony admits second thoughts on re-signing


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Carmelo Anthony admitted having second thoughts about re-signing with the Knicks during the organization's disastrous 2014-15 season. 

The Knicks finished a franchise-worst 17-65 with Anthony missing the second half of the season due to a knee injury. 

"As a human being those thoughts definitely come into play," Anthony said, via the Associated Press. "You sit down at night and you're thinking, 'Did I really make the right decision?' Or just things like that. But not often did I think like that."

Anthony added he's no longer having second thoughts about re-signing with the Knicks. His focus now is strengthening the injured left knee that underwent surgery in February. 

Anthony said he's expecting to be participating in basketball activities in June. 

With the 2014-15 season finished, Anthony is hopeful the Knicks can reverse their fortune next year.

"Nobody expected the season to be like this. We all expected at least to somewhat compete in the Eastern Conference," Anthony said. "At the end of the day this next season, for me and for the organization and for Phil, it's like this is where we earn our money."


Cavaliers G J.R. Smith bares his soul in written article


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith refuted his reputation as selfish, compared former teammate Carmelo Anthony with LeBron James and defended embattled Cleveland forward Kevin Love in an article he wrote himself for The Cauldron.

Smith also came across as thoughtful in expressing his feelings about a shocking midseason that sent him from New York to Cleveland. But it was his defense of his character that stood out in the long piece.

"There have been unfair rumors that lead people to have misconceptions about me: that I don't care; that I don't take my job seriously; that I'm not committed to my craft," Smith wrote. "It's unfortunate, but people have been saying this about me during my entire career. It obviously bothers me and naturally would bother anyone to feel that people don't take you serious as a person. ... (after getting to know me) someone tells me I am a completely different person than who they perceived me to be."

Smith went on to write that Anthony is a pure scorer who has never had the luxury to play alongside the quality players afforded James or Kobe Bryant, but that he yearns to win as much as the other two. Smith concluded his piece by defending Love, whose numbers have fallen off considerably this year after a trade brought him from Minnesota.

"Forget what anyone says, Kevin Love is the ultimate teammate," Smith wrote. "He isn't the most athletic player out there - actually, Kevin is like that guy you see in a 40-and-up league just killing it because he knows the game better than anyone else out there. Mentally, Love is just in another stratosphere when it comes to understanding basketball. Plus, not only is he an underrated shooter who can knock down shots better than half the guards in the league, he is also the best rebounder I have played with, hands down."


Knicks F Carmelo Anthony optimistic he'll be ready for training camp


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Less than two months removed from undergoing knee surgery, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony spoke to reporters Thursday and said he'll be healthy for training camp, reports ESPNNewYork.

Anthony was expected to need four-to-six months to recover from the surgery he underwent in February. He hopes to resume basketball activities sometime in June.

The Knicks struggled before and after Anthony's surgery this season, finishing 17-65. Anthony admitted to second guessing his decision to remain with the Knicks, but said he has no regrets. Despite the difficult season, Anthony said he still has faith in Knicks president Phil Jackson.

With the team possessing $25 million in cap space this summer, Anthony said the offseason will be crucial to the future of the Knicks and he is willing to recruit free agents. 

"This next season for me and for the organization and for Phil this is where we earn our money," he said.

Anthony added that If the Knicks acquire another All-Star, he'd be willing to be the second option.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Report: Knicks' Carmelo Anthony suffered knee injury last season


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony's knee troubles began last season when he suffered a partial tear of the left patellar tendon, reports the New York Post.

Heat's Wade on Carmelo Anthony: Smart to shut it down


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade said Friday that Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony did the "smart thing" by electing to undergo surgery, the New York Daily News reports.

"The smart thing for him to do was to shut it down and get healthy and he’ll be back by the time of training camp so he’ll be good," Wade said Friday before his team's 111-87 win in New York. "This is not one of the bad knee surgeries that you have to have. It’s probably a 25-minute procedure. It’s never great to go in and open anything up. But if you wanted a knee surgery to happen, this is the one you’d want. Like I said, Melo will be fine."

Wade underwent the same procedure, called patella tendon debridement and repair surgery, following the 2006-07 season. He had a second surgery on the knee in 2012 and has dealt with tendinitis and bone bruises throughout his career.

"The biggest thing is that he was smart about it,” Wade said. "Obviously a lot of things out there about why and what - the reason was (for him to have the surgery). But I was in the exact same position he was in. Actually we had nine wins going into the All-Star break and he has ten so he’s better than we was. But we shut it down and I was able to get surgery and get healthy and come back and have my best season as a pro."

Wade also said he spoke to Anthony before his surgery. The Knicks forward is expected to need four-to-six months of recovery time.

Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: 'I played when I wasn't supposed to play'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony called the idea that he missed games earlier in the season to save himself for the All-Star Game "absurd," ESPN.com reports.

"I've played when I wasn't supposed to play so for people to say that is, that's absurd," Anthony said. "I've played through this (injury) since the second game of the season, since the first game of the season. So for somebody to say I was waiting for this moment -- yeah I was waiting for the moment. All-Star weekend was here in New York so of course, I was waiting for this moment.

"(But) I played when I wasn't supposed to play. When people were telling me to sit out, I was fighting against them and still going out there and playing," Anthony added. "It was almost a point in the last couple of days where I wasn't going to participate in All-Star weekend."

Anthony reiterated Friday that he plans to play in the All-Star Game, even if it's only for a few minutes. "That's important to me," Anthony said. "At the end of the day, it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation because if I would have said I'm not participating, I'd have gotten backlash about it. I'm saying I am participating. I get backlash. I'm happy. I'm here participating. It's here in New York. The fans voted me in and I'm going to play in the game."

Anthony remains unsure of his status for the remainder of the season as he continues to mull whether to have surgery on his injured left knee.


Knicks F Carmelo Anthony hasn't made mind up about season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony backtracked somewhat from an ESPN radio interview on Thursday, where he said it was "very likely" he would shut his season down after the All-Star Game due to left knee soreness.

Accoridng to NBA.com's Adam Zagoria, Anthony, speaking to reporters at the All-Star Game media day, said that he hasn't reached a final decision on what he'll do once the weekend's festivities conclude.

"I'm going to see, I'm going to try," Anthony said, when asked if he'll play after the All-Star Game. "We have a whole week to figure that out."

Surgery is still a possibility for Anthony, who has dealt with the injury all season. 

"My mindset is, if [surgery] is something I have to get done, then I'm going to do that," Anthony said, via ESPN New York's Ian Begley. 

However, Anthony also said, via Newsday's Al Iannazzone, that he's still unsure if he'll play in another game this season, but reiterated that no decision has been made.

The Knicks are a league-worst 10-43, making it more likely for the organization to take a cautious approach with Anthony's health.


Knicks F Carmelo Anthony 'very likely' to shut it down after ASG


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2015) Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony said Thursday on ESPN Radio that it's "very likely" he will shut down playing after the All-Star Game.

"I got to start thinking about the future," Anthony said.

Anthony has been bothered by left knee soreness for several months this season. He aggravated the injury Monday against Miami and sat out Wednesday night against Orlando. Surgery still remains a possibility for Anthony. He is expected to speak with the media on Friday, and will likely clarify more on his lingering knee injury. He also indicated that he'll probably play in Sunday's exhibition game at Madison Square Garden, "even if it's just a few minutes."

The injury caused Anthony to miss six consecutive games, including seven overall in January. As a result of Anthony not being 100 percent, the Knicks are at the bottom of the standings with an NBA-worst 10-43 record. Because New York is well out of contention and destined for a lottery pick, they'll take a cautious approach with Anthony moving forward, focusing on the future of the franchise. He has averaged 24.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 40 games this season.

Knicks' Carmelo Anthony considering surgery on injured knee


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony is dealing with a knee injury that he has battled on and off all season. Anthony has already said he doesn't know if he'll play in this weekend's All-Star Game and now he is considering surgery to repair the knee.

"Now is the time to really start taking into consideration about fixing it and when to take care of it. Don't wait long. Should I get it done now or afterwards?" Anthony said. "I'm still trying to come to a decision." 

He thinks the injury would keep him out two months if he has the surgery now.

"If I have it done now, I will for sure be back for camp," Anthony said. "I will be back way before camp. If I have to calculate -- I am not the doctor -- I would say if I get it done now, two months until I am back on the court. But this is something I would take slowly and not try to rush. But from what I am hearing, if I was to get it done sooner than later, then I will be back to my kind of regular working out schedule in the summertime."
