Carmelo Anthony says he will have to adapt his offensive approach in order to be successful in the triangle. "It's an adjustment," Anthony said, after the Knicks' preseason win over the Celtics on Saturday. "it's an adjustment because I'm used to taking my time and seeing where the defense is coming from. And even now, it's a medium that you've got to play with. Sometimes you can hold it a little, sometimes you don't have it, (you have to) get it out quickly. So it's an adjustment for me." ESPN.com

Calderon and Bargnani played nearly seven seasons together with the Raptors “We talk all the time, text each other all the time,’’ Calderon said. “When you play with a guy seven years, he’s more than a teammate. You start getting closer. He was one of first to text me [after the Knicks trade], ‘Hey amigo, happy for you to be with me here again.’ ’’ As a former first overall pick, Bargani has been under heavy scrutiny since his rookie year. “It doesn’t matter what they say,’’ Calderon said. “It’s what you say about yourself.’’ New York Post

Carmelo Anthony says he hasn’t had a chance to read the book written by Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim which reveals his grades from his freshman year at the school. But he may seek Boeheim out when the Knicks are in Syracuse for a preseason game Tuesday to talk to him about it. “It’s hard for me to converse about it," Anthony said after practice Friday. “I don’t know what he was saying. If I read it, I can get the tone of what he was trying to say because I know him. I know how he’d say a lot of things he said. Once I get the information and facts and talk to [Boeheim], I’ll get a better understanding about what’s going on." ESPN.com

Syracuse fans may be interested to know Anthony said he probably would have returned to school if the Orange hadn’t won the national title in 2003. “I did not know until after we won the championship (that he was entering the NBA draft),” Anthony said. “And even up until that point, I still went in there and had a conversation with Boeheim about trying to figure out how to come back to school.” ESPN.com

Did you have to make a Knicks-or-Warriors decision? Kerr: Yes. NBA.com: What did that come down to? Kerr: Everything I just referenced. New York was very intriguing, especially my relationship with Phil and the opportunity he was presenting me, and the Knicks, the franchise itself and the history. But it would have been a really, really difficult situation in terms of the family and being all the way across the country. I just felt better suited to work with these guys here, this younger roster with a more established core. It just felt more comfortable. NBA.com

Do you second-guess yourself? Do you regret the way you handled it — saying yes, committing to it before things had really been worked out? Kerr: A little bit. It’s a human thing. Phil couldn’t have been better when I told him I was going to go Golden State. NBA.com: He didn’t feel burned? Kerr: Not at all. Because he understood. In fact, he said, “If you had come here and regretted it, it would have been the worst thing for both of us.” That’s why Phil’s Phil. He understands people. In hindsight, it probably would have been best not committing, not saying anything, just saying, “Look, I need to talk to Golden State.” But the timing was an issue on both ends. It was very tricky. Anyway, it all worked out. I think the Knicks ended up with a great coach and Derek (Fisher) and Phil will do well together and I’m happy to be here with (general manager) Bob (Myers) and the team.
