Calling the deal fair because Sam Dalembert "is on the court" is interesting since many say Mavs won the trade because Sam "is on the court"
Phil tweets that he's "okay with the Dallas deal. Tyson fits there and our 3 players, Jose, Sam, and Shane are on the court." Riiight.
One final thing about ESPN's Santa Claus commercials; today's NBA players have actually worn sillier hats to press conferences.
Not sure about Melo, but Derek Fisher should've gone to the Bulls. Long hug and talk with Pau Gasol.
Did you know every time a Knicks fan says "It's not about this season" Jim Dolan makes $10,000? True story. That's how he made his fortune.
ESPN commercial with Santa Claus saying at a press conference "we're talking about presents? Not the game. Presents?" is pretty, pretty good
Derrick Rose is questionable tonight -illness.
Carmelo Anthony expected to sit out vs. Bulls tonight. As the Daily News reported last week, Melo will need knee surgery at some point.
If Melo takes off tonight he will have three days off, then they play a back-to-back with three more days off before the Christmas Day game
Melo also said a bunch of people have told him to "shut it down" for a little while but he is fighting it
Melo is going to test the knee in shootaround. Said he aggravated it Tuesday.
Carmelo says didn't feel right vs. Dallas and knee hasn't responded too well.
Melo said the knee was bothering him against Dallas. He is going to test it at shootaround
Pau Gasol jogged down the hallway to hug and talk to former teammate Derek Fisher
Pau Gasol and Fisher exchange hugs in hallway here at United Center. Pau also embraces Calderon.
So the Knicks could be without Carmelo, Amar'e, JR Smith, Shumpert and Bargnani tonight for a TNT game.
Carmelo is questionable - Amare said this was a planned recovery day.
Amare says he feels fine but this was a planned recovery day.
If Melo sits and with Amare out, why did Knicks bother to waste the plane fuel. Amare didn't know Melo may be out.
TNT should enjoy this game.
Fisher tells reporters in Chicago that Amare probably won't play tonight (rest) and Carmelo (knee) is questionable vs. Bulls.
Melo is questionable tonight vs. Bulls. He's still dealing with knee soreness. Fisher will decide on lineup based on Melo's availability.
Melo questionable with knee and Amare being rested.
Fisher says Stoudemire will not play tonight vs. Bulls. They want to give Stoudemire rest with back-to-back coming up.
Amar'e is a recovery day with three games in four days
Fisher said Amare probably won't play tonight and called Melo questionable with knee soreness
Amare will rest tonight and Carmelo may too.
Thank God for today

Wow, Duncan prayer sends Spurs-Grizzlies to 3rd OT. Pop might rest his starters the rest of 2014 after tonight.
If I get a flight down to San Antonio now, maybe I can get there before this game ends.
This Spurs-Grizzlies game is absurd.
Why are the basketball gods injuring one of the most fun teams in the league? I love watching this Milwaukee team
Grizzlies are a fantastic team. Just have to wonder if they're using up all their miracle shots too early in the year. OT in San Antonio.
Interesting first-round matchup if they decided to end the NBA season Dec. 17: No. 4 Chicago vs. No. 5 Cleveland. The presumed East final.
18-7 Hawks, sans Teague (top scorer/assists) beat Cavs (4 Ls last 5) by 29 on road. Danny Ferry executive of year. Lue inching over on bench
If u guessed 42 you are right. GOOD LUCK
North Korea did give two thumbs up to Carmelo's "Bulls Free Agency Infomercial." They called it "uplifting, You won't run from these Bulls."
Phil Jackson must be thinking "where was North Korea the day before Spike's triangle movie was set to debut on MSG Network."
That awkward moment when you fully accept how nerdy and detailed you are as a basketball reporter.
Andrea Bargnani has held the ball 0.0 seconds this year.
