But the anger of NBA players to low ratings or rankings, in any setting, is a real thing. It doesn’t matter that the people ranking them have never put on an NBA uniform in anger, and likely never got past scrappy 12th man or woman on their respective high school/AAU teams, and cover basketball precisely because they cannot play it, they can only talk about it. (This list would start with me, by the way, and not just because my last name conveniently begins with an A.) Of course, when you ask them about it, they don’t have the slightest idea what you’re talking about. “I don’t care,” the Portland Trail Blazers’ two-time All-Star, Damian Lillard, said last week on the phone. “You should know I don’t care. I’m just going to talk my (bleep) because that’s what I do. I’ve always been given less, so I don’t pay it no mind.” But Lillard did care about Anthony’s ranking, if not his own.
Jeff Hornacek isn’t the only member of the Knicks’ hierarchy to attend one of Carmelo Anthony’s New York City pickup games. Knicks president Steve Mills also attended a pickup game earlier this month featuring Anthony and other players at the Lifetime Athletic gym in Manhattan, league sources told ESPN. Mills’ and Hornacek’s attendance at these games is noteworthy because the Knicks have been looking to trade Anthony for months and Anthony, who has a no-trade clause, is open to being moved. New York has been unable to find a suitable deal with Anthony’s preferred destination, the Houston Rockets. It is unknown if Hornacek or Mills had any substantive discussions with Anthony on the day(s) they attended games. For what it’s worth, Mills last month wrote a long blog on a company website about his vision for the future of the club and didn’t mention Anthony.

Draymond Green agrees with Carmelo Anthony to an extent. The Warriors volatile forward talked to ESPN.com about the website’s controversial list that set Anthony off on Twitter, and led to other NBA players venting their frustration on social media. “I think when you look at Melo, Melo has been a great player in this league for some time now,” Green told the website. “Obviously, I think no one thinks that he’s the Melo he was five years ago, and that happens to everyone. That’s just the nature of the career that we’ve all chosen.
