Carmelo Anthony spoke about his decision to return to the Knicks

"I was flip-flopping."

Bulls making renewed push for Kevin Love, per report

The Bulls are reportedly trying to get back in the mix for Love, but it's unlikely they land him. As the Bulls set their sights on Carmelo Anthony, it appeared they had fallen out of the Kevin Love chase. But after missing out on Anthony, the Bulls have made a renewed push for Love, according to ESPN's Marc Stein and Brian Windhorst: Sources say that the Bulls, though, have this re-entered the race and would appear to be the biggest threat to the Cavs, thanks largely to the Golden State Warriors' resolute unwillingness to add longtime Wolves target Klay Thompson in a deal. Although the...

Dog Days of Summer League - Rockets VSL Semi Finals Thread Etc

Its the Dog Days of Vegas Summer League. The Rockets are in the Semi Finals. It is all the basketball we have. Hi Dreamshakers.  It appears that things have calmed down for a bit after the flurry of disappointment, recrimination, and ultimately, relief, of the past few days. It now appears that despite: Not signing Carmelo Anthony, never a serious possibility as far as I was concerned given his homelife, major media market requirement, and desire for max cash. Not signing LeBron James also never a serious possibility if you thought about it, plus he didn't take a meeting with Houston....

Tim Howard tweets pic of him in Knicks jersey, asks if team has salary cap space

The Knicks borught back scoring machine Carmelo Anthony this offseason but what about their defense? At least one guy who knows plenty about it threw his hat in the ring Thursday.

Melo selfless, not selfish, for taking $124M

Carmelo Anthony has been one of the more polarizing figures in New York sports over the past three years. At the beginning of his Knicks career, Carmelo was criticized for the way he arrived in the Big Apple (blockbuster three-team trade, instead of signing as a free agent). Now, he’s being critiqued for the way he chose to return to the Knicks. Anthony signed a $124 million contract with the Knicks on Sunday, opting for a return to New York instead of opportunities to play in Chicago and Los Angeles.

Less money is more for Melo, Knicks in '15

Carmelo Anthony's contract with the Knicks is worth $124 million over five years, sources told ESPN New York. That's $5 million less than the maximum. Here's what that discount means for the Knicks: A little more $ to spend in 2015: Carmelo's contract starts at the maximum salary of $22.458 million. League sources told ESPN New York that Anthony's contract will increase "slightly" in the second year but less than the maximum increase of 7.5 percent.
