Carmelo Anthony took some time before he eventually waived his no-trade clause and included the Oklahoma City Thunder on his list of possible destinations. NBA insider Marc Stein spoke to the former New York Knicks star about the person who encouraged Anthony to waive his no-trade clause and allow the Knicks to send him to the Thunder (via New York Times): “My son said he wanted me to play for OKC, even before OKC was in the picture.’’ Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, 10, attended team practice on Tuesday afternoon and even worked on his one-on-one game against 2017 NBA MVP Russell...

Stein: Carmelo Anthony Trade, Trail Blazers Snub “Was About Family”

John Canzano and Marc Stein dig deeper into Carmelo Anthony’s reasoning for bypassing Portland The Portland Trail Blazers were reported to be in hot pursuit of New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony this summer, with star guards Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum trying to woo the high-scoring forward to join them in the Rose City. Ultimately Anthony waived his no-trade clause to accept a trade to the Oklahoma City Thunder, joining NBA MVP Russell Westbrook and and perennial All-Star Paul George instead. In an audio interview published yesterday, Oregonian columnist John Canzano reviewed...

Carmelo: No reason for Knicks fans to boo me at MSG

OKLAHOMA CITY — Carmelo Anthony said the “chapter is closed’’ on his Knicks stint with Thursday’s 105-84 victory. However, there may be one more page — Dec. 16, when Anthony and the Thunder visit the Garden for the first time since the trade. The Garden reaction to the return of Anthony, always a lightning rod, will...

Frank Ntilikina is Knicks’ only hope at point guard

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Knicks point-guard dilemma looked as bad as advertised in the season opener, a 105-84 loss to the Thunder and Carmelo Anthony. Neither Ramon Sessions, Ron Baker nor French rookie Frank Ntilikina could do a thing. In Ntilikina’s case, it was understandable. After missing summer league, Ntilikina missed the final four preseason games...

Friday Bolts: 10.20.17

Erik Horne on the Thunder’s season opening win against New York: “In the Thunder’s 105-84 win against the New York Knicks to open the season, there were plenty of those reminders Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Paul George and Co. were adamant about in preseason: The development of chemistry is going to take time. Westbrook, however, is […]

Oklahoma City 105, New York 84: “It’s one game”

Oklahoma City 105, New York 84: “It’s one game”

Tis better to have hung for a half than never to have hung at all. The most important takeaway from the Knicks’ 105-84 opening night loss in Oklahoma City is that it’s just one game, the game that’s like literally the furthest removed from both the team and narrative we’ll see develop over the season. A lot of this game’s headlines were easy to see coming. The Thunder led most of the way. Kristaps Porzingis was the Knicks’ best player. Carmelo Anthony took a lot of shots and scored a lot of points. Russell Westbrook had a triple-double. Ron Baker did not. The thing no one saw...

Thunder Views: Westbrook triple-doubles, traveling violations, and Steven Adams

Thunder Views: Westbrook triple-doubles, traveling violations, and Steven Adams

Steven Adams is awesome, and the Thunder are back! Turns out, putting Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, and Paul George on the same team is going to a ton of fun. Who knew? After a slow start, shots started to fall and the Thunder got into a nice second half flow to ultimately beat the Knicks by 21. Russell Westbrook had his 80th career triple double, which is cool I guess. But Steven Adams plays really good defense, and that’s definitely cool. Spotlight It’s tempting to talk about the trio’s first regular season game together, but I would be doing an injustice if we didn’t first...

The Thunder were up on the Knicks, 3-0. “It felt good,” Anthony said. “I was actually surprised the first shot was that wide open. Glad it went in...

Knicks no match for Carmelo, Thunder in opening-night dud

OKLAHOMA CITY — Kristaps Porzingis bested Carmelo Anthony in their individual matchup, but that was the only thing that went right for the Knicks. Anthony didn’t have a very good performance in the first game of his new life, but he had a very good cast, led by Russell Westbrook’s triple-double (21 points, 16 assists,...

Thunder 105, Knicks 84: Scenes from Kristaps Porzingis shining amidst familiar Knicks clownery

Kristaps > Knicks. The New York Knicks kicked off their 2017-18 campaign looking much like they looked last year: a squad with a promising unicorn, coached by incompetents. Carmelo Anthony was supposed to be the story of the evening, but he’s not a Knick anymore so forget him. Let’s start, instead, with the good: Kristaps Porzingis was the man, particularly in the first half when he lead all scorers with 19 points. He struggled with his shot in the second half—not sure if it was due to his usual fatigue issues or the Thunder’s stifling D—but he still ended up with 31 points on...

Carmelo Anthony: Kristaps Porzingis has to 'embrace' being 'The Man'
