Yes, Anthony might make more in two years. He gave up about $5 million (“relative to the contract I got, it’s not a lot of money,” Anthony admitted) in staying with the Knicks. And he wants to stay put. “I plan on ending my career here, so it wasn’t for me to go out there and try to strike a two-year deal and then have to go through this situation in two years. I’m not doing that ever again. I would never do that again. I would advise no one to ever do that,” Anthony said. “I experienced it and it’s behind me.” New York Post

Carmelo Anthony said Thursday there were business reasons in addition to basketball ones that led him to re-sign with the Knicks this offseason. "I just couldn't leave from that perspective," he said at the Bloomberg Sports Business Summit in Manhattan. "There were so many opportunities that I started to build upon here in New York City, business opportunities, different situations. "I just felt if I was to leave, I would have to start all over in the next place, meet new people, build that foundation up once again, and it took me a lot to build that foundation and get it up and going to where it's at right now."

"I want to brand myself as the digital athlete," said Anthony, who used the word "brand" often. "I really want to be the pioneer for that digital athlete, and when it comes to tech, I want to be the face of that space." Newsday

When Roland Lazenby — author of the new biography “Michael Jordan: The Life” and numerous other sports books — came to the Varsity Letters sports reading series in New York this summer, one intrepid Wizards fan hazarded a question. Lazenby had just wrapped up what largely came across as a defense of Michael Jordan, the person, who — since the end of the era of “Space Jam,” the McDonald’s commercial with Larry Bird, and “It’s Gotta Be the Shoes” — has seen less than favorable coverage. “What do you make of Jordan’s time with the Wizards?” the Wizards fan asked, momentarily giving the underground bar where Lazenby spoke the same sort of hushed anticipation as a Thanksgiving dinner where someone mentions Uncle Larry’s affair, or the Cheever Letters, or whatever family secret no one’s brave enough to mention without being more than a few Scotches or eggnogs in.
