Clearly. Phil Jackson has yet to attend the Knicks "Gitmo-like" media training. Or perhaps Jim Dolan's spiritual advisor is asleep at wheel.

Ian Begley

Of course the scale for Carmelo is different, but only those willing to take a lower wage to benefit their employer should criticize him IMO

Ian Begley

I think calling Carmelo Anthony selfish for accepting a $124 million contract offer is misguided. Here's why: es.pn/1oJLwNZ

But, spending the vet's minimum for a move that makes LeBron happy probably counts as money well spent.

James Jones only got in 20 games when the Heat were often resting Wade. Showed me his game is done. Don't like that Cavs' signing.

If Anthony does opt out after four years, he'll be forgoing a fifth season that would pay him $27.9 million at age 34. Can't see it.

I think people tend to overrate JR's Sixth Man season, & tend to underrate how he played last year -- largely bc of his antics and bad start

Just looked at JR Smith's numbers. Crazy that he almost finished this past yr with the same FG% he had in 2012-13, when he won Sixth Man.

Kemba Walker (Rice HS) and Lance Stephenson (Lincoln HS) were both great NYC prep players. Great to see them playing together in Charlotte.

Phil Jackson has said that winning something meaningful will probably take awhile. It's not a criticism to agree with him on that.

Many responding with BKN/ATL as teams dropping out. Nets depend on KG situation, backup PG. Hawks are solid. Horford return is big.

I get that Carmelo didn't take a massive pay cut, but his discount will help in 2015. Also, he's not responsible for previous cap mistakes.

Carmelo Anthony's no trade clause is rare. Only Dirk Nowitzki, Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant & Kevin Garnett currently have one, per @Larry Coon.

Melo could've taken $129M max instead of $124M. Wonder if that would've been first time player left off the 3 All NBA Teams got maxed.
