HoopsHype Jim Boeheim rumors

November 30, 2011 Updates

Carmelo Anthony had no desire to dip his toe into raging waters regarding his alma mater and former Syracuse assistant coach Bernie Fine, who was fired in the wake of allegations he molested two ballboys in the 1980s and 1990s. That was before Anthony’s one year at Syracuse in 2003, when he led Jim Boeheim’s Orange to the national championship. “My heart goes out to the families,’’ Anthony said yesterday. “That’s a sensitive situation, a sensitive topic right now. And I don’t even want to go there.” New York Post

"He is a winner," said Boeheim, calling Anthony "misunderstood" and his mistakes overplayed by the media. "He can help a team win a championship but you can't do it by yourself. "Saying Carmelo is not a winner is like saying Jerry Sloan and (John) Stockton and (Karl) Malone were not winners. They got places, they won playoff games just like Denver. The Nuggets just went up against tough teams in the Western Conference like San Antonio and Los Angeles." New York Daily News

Jim Boeheim, a Team USA assistant and Anthony's coach at Syracuse, agrees with Billups. Boeheim, who expects to see Anthony on the Syracuse campus shortly before the start of Denver's training camp, could see it as prudent for Anthony to evaluate how the Nuggets look this season. "He's had a great experience in Denver,'' Boeheim, who last spoke with Anthony at his July 10 wedding in New York, said in an interview with FanHouse. "I know he wants to win and he wants to get where he can win. Denver's got a good core of players. If they can add a guy, even one guy, not necessarily a whole lot of guys, they have a chance to be very good. The NBA is so crazy now. He wants to win just like everybody. And, if Denver can win, I'm sure that he can stay there. "He's comfortable (in Denver). I think Melo's thing is to stay where he feels comfortable. He's got to see what Denver does and how the contracts go. ... He should play and have a great year and try to let that work out.'' FanHouse.com
