One person Anthony admitted he does rely on for advice is Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim, who said last week that he believes his former player should consider his legacy — and decide whether he thinks he can win a championship in New York — before signing his next contract. “He’s a guy I kind of bounce a lot of stuff off of, just get his opinion,” Anthony said. “I think he’s a great guy to have to pick his brain and get some insight on things. He’s a guy, he’s going to tell you straight like it is. If you ain’t doing something he’s going to tell you. If I’m doing something, he’ll tell you. If he sees something that’s wrong, he’s going to tell me. “We have those conversations. For me that’s probably one of the best people that I can talk to, because he’s going to give it to me straight up, right or wrong.” New York Daily News

Jim Boeheim, still an influence in Carmelo Anthony’s life, understands that his former star might need to leave New York to finally win a ring. In an interview on Sirius XM Radio, the Syracuse coach brought up what Anthony himself has referenced — the fact that LeBron James needed to leave Cleveland and join up with some other stars before he finally won a championship. “LeBron, without Dwyane Wade the last couple of years, would not win the championship, I don’t think,” Boeheim said. We’re just not sold on Anthony leaving the Garden, mainly because we have yet to hear of a big-market team in L.A. or Chicago that intends to gear up and make a a run for his services.

Boeheim, Anthony's coach for one season at Syracuse and as an assistant on the U.S. National Team, said on ESPN Radio Wednesday that Anthony should play for a team that can win it all. "The problem in the NBA, you're judged on winning championships," Boeheim said. "He's got to try to go and play where they can win a championship or else he's going to be a failure. That's the bottom line." Newsday

Boeheim didn't rule out Anthony re-signing, but suggested the Knicks have to make some moves to keep him. "In my opinion, everybody I've seen win an NBA championship had a great player playing with them," Boeheim said. "I think Carmelo wants to play in New York. He wanted to come there. I think he likes playing in New York. I think he would stay in New York if he's got a chance to win." Newsday

“What was the difference in the series?,’’ Boeheim said. “Raymond Felton was 0-for-7. Lance Stephenson had [25] points. They’re going to blame it on Carmelo? I told him when he went to New York, ‘They’re going to blame it on you.’ “They have no chance to win,’’ Boeheim continued, according to the Syracuse daily. “Pablo Prigioni has never scored against [Team USA]. We played Argentina six or seven times in different events. He hasn’t scored against us. You have to have players to win in the NBA.” New York Post

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
