Kansas coach Bill Self became the latest on Saturday—sparked by a question about KU freshman Kelly Oubre—and it's a tangent that just about any coach in America when teed up would go off on. Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim voiced his displeasure recently as well. "The mock drafts don't mean anything," Self said. "And I would tell the guy if he was here doing the mock drafts. They don't mean anything. They're ridiculous." Bleacher Report

Jim Boeheim says Carmelo Anthony is a “great player” regardless of whether or not he ever wins an NBA championship. “Carmelo Anthony, he may not win an NBA title but he’s a great player, as was Karl Malone, John Stockton, Charles Barkley,” the Syracuse coach told Mike Francesa Wednesday during a radio interview. “You gotta get a cast, you gotta be in a position to win.” The Knicks Blog

One person Anthony admitted he does rely on for advice is Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim, who said last week that he believes his former player should consider his legacy — and decide whether he thinks he can win a championship in New York — before signing his next contract. “He’s a guy I kind of bounce a lot of stuff off of, just get his opinion,” Anthony said. “I think he’s a great guy to have to pick his brain and get some insight on things. He’s a guy, he’s going to tell you straight like it is. If you ain’t doing something he’s going to tell you. If I’m doing something, he’ll tell you. If he sees something that’s wrong, he’s going to tell me. “We have those conversations. For me that’s probably one of the best people that I can talk to, because he’s going to give it to me straight up, right or wrong.” New York Daily News

Jim Boeheim, still an influence in Carmelo Anthony’s life, understands that his former star might need to leave New York to finally win a ring. In an interview on Sirius XM Radio, the Syracuse coach brought up what Anthony himself has referenced — the fact that LeBron James needed to leave Cleveland and join up with some other stars before he finally won a championship. “LeBron, without Dwyane Wade the last couple of years, would not win the championship, I don’t think,” Boeheim said. We’re just not sold on Anthony leaving the Garden, mainly because we have yet to hear of a big-market team in L.A. or Chicago that intends to gear up and make a a run for his services.

Boeheim, Anthony's coach for one season at Syracuse and as an assistant on the U.S. National Team, said on ESPN Radio Wednesday that Anthony should play for a team that can win it all. "The problem in the NBA, you're judged on winning championships," Boeheim said. "He's got to try to go and play where they can win a championship or else he's going to be a failure. That's the bottom line." Newsday

Boeheim didn't rule out Anthony re-signing, but suggested the Knicks have to make some moves to keep him. "In my opinion, everybody I've seen win an NBA championship had a great player playing with them," Boeheim said. "I think Carmelo wants to play in New York. He wanted to come there. I think he likes playing in New York. I think he would stay in New York if he's got a chance to win." Newsday

“What was the difference in the series?,’’ Boeheim said. “Raymond Felton was 0-for-7. Lance Stephenson had [25] points. They’re going to blame it on Carmelo? I told him when he went to New York, ‘They’re going to blame it on you.’ “They have no chance to win,’’ Boeheim continued, according to the Syracuse daily. “Pablo Prigioni has never scored against [Team USA]. We played Argentina six or seven times in different events. He hasn’t scored against us. You have to have players to win in the NBA.” New York Post
