Carmelo needs to quiet down and let Phil Jackson do his job

Be careful what you wish for, Carmelo Anthony. You just might get it.

Warriors’ depth passes test in first round

The Warriors might have resembled a one-man show at times this season — which speaks to Curry’s captivating skills — but they steam into the Western Conference semifinals as much because of their extraordinary depth. Clippers series — the Trail Blazers can advance by winning Game 6 at home Friday night — they find reassurance in the way they eliminated Houston. Five players other than Curry averaged in double figures, including two reserves (Andre Iguodala at 11.0 and Marreese Speights at 10.8) and another player who typically comes off the bench (Shaun Livingston at 13.2). Klay...

Did Carmelo Anthony attend the Triangle seminar: An investigation

I dunno...or do I? Hey everybody, remember that time I told y'all that Carmelo Anthony attended Phil Jackson's Triangle seminar? Yeah ... um ... about that ... Per Ian Begley: There are conflicting reports about Carmelo Anthony's presence at Phil Jackson's optional triangle meetings this week. The New York Post reported that Anthony did not attend the meetings. The New York Daily News reported earlier this week that Anthony attended the camp but reported today that he didn't. I've heard he wasn't there but his presence/absence is really not all that significant. The camp was not mandatory...

Bondy: Carmelo Anthony, Robin Lopez joined Phil Jackson's "triangle seminar"

Participation! The president of the New York Knicks held a training seminar Tuesday, and many Knicks employees showed up. Vets showed up; youngsters showed up. Stars showed up; dudes at the end of the roster showed up. That's right, bitches -- attendance is happening! According to Stefan Bondy of the Daily News, Carmelo Anthony and Robin Lopez joined Kristaps Porzingis and several other Knicks at the Phil Jackson's now-infamous "triangle seminar." (Confession: I took way too much delight in the "Zen at Work" headline.) They aren't mentioned in the piece, but I would imagine Tony Wroten,...

Carmelo Anthony probably likes Tom Thibodeau; We just don't know how much

Melo has many reasons to like Thibs. New York Daily News reporter Frank Isola has reported that Carmelo Anthony would very much like to see former Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau coach the team next season: A source close to Anthony insists that his preferred choice is Tom Thibodeau, a coach Jackson seems to have no interest in speaking to. Remember that the next time someone says or reports that Phil is just doing his due diligence. Yeah right. Knicks fans have a right to be suspicious -- Isola has a longstanding relationship with Thibs, and his Twitter caping for Thibs is bordering on...
