Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim maintains little hope that former Syracuse star Carmelo Anthony can win an NBA title with the New York Knicks. "Not on that team," Boeheim said. "He did what he can do. He played very well the final game. Everybody's killing him but Tyson Chandler just didn't try to catch the ball. He threw him the ball and Tyson Chandler went like this (Boeheim dodged in a chair in his office in the Carmelo K. Anthony Center). He was wide open. He should have been looking for the ball right here. Kenyon Martin should have been looking for the ball. They both went like this (Boeheim dodged again). Carmelo gets turnovers and the announcers aren't smart enough to even think, 'Well, the guy should try to catch the ball.' " The Post-Standard

Do you want to see Russia in the finals? Jim Boeheim: “I don’t think so. I think that was so long ago that we’ll play whoever’s there. Russia’s very good, Spain. All these teams are very good. I don’t think it matters who you get. It’s going to be a difficult game. Our players, they weren’t born in 1972, so they’re not concerned about that. Russia’s very good, but Spain is really very talented. Our goal is to just make sure we play well.” Sports Radio Interviews

As Anthony weaved a record-setting Olympic night, Syracuse coaching legend Jim Boeheim, a Team USA assistant, just kept thinking: Why does his former college prodigy get knocked so often? “He gets criticized for what he does, and that’s being an offensive machine,’’ Boeheim told The Post after Team USA humiliated Nigeria in a record-setting 83-point rout, 156-73. “I’m tired of reading it. He doesn’t play like LeBron James. He can pass, but he’s a scorer. He’s an offensive force. That’s what he does. He’s an offensive scorer, and internationally, he’s unguardable at the 4. You really need a 3 to guard him, but then he can take him inside.’’ New York Post

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
