Just repeating a few points there: 5-22 Knicks, 15-9 Bulls. “What’s done is done. I kind of don’t look at it, I kind of don’t think about it anymore,” Anthony said. “That’s in the past for me. … As far as now and thinking about that situation, it doesn’t even come close to me thinking about that.” New York Post

Silver said Charlotte would be awarded an All-Star Game. The 2015 and 2016 events are in New York and Toronto, respectively, with 2017 and 2018 announcements to come. Silver said he met with Hornets Chairman Michael Jordan and Hornets President and Chief Operating Officer Fred Whitfield on Wednesday about a timeline in relation to $40 million of upcoming renovations to Time Warner Cable Arena.

So we all know what Anthony must know — that even money can’t can’t gloss over the mistake he made. But he steadfastly insisted as he readied for this trip that he won’t allow regrets to drift into his mind. “No, if I start doing that and saying what if to myself and second-guessing and questioning myself, it won’t be right,” Anthony said. “For me, mentally, it won’t be right, so I’ll not allow myself to sway toward asking myself what if with this situation or that situation. “What’s done is done. I kind of don’t look at it, I kind of don’t think about it anymore. That’s in the past for me, just a situation that I had to deal with, that I went through this off-season. As far as now and thinking about that situation, it doesn’t even come close to me thinking about that.” Bergen Record

Minnesota Timberwolves backup center Ronny Turiaf will miss the rest of the season recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right hip. The surgery went as planned Tuesday in New York and the team announced after that Turiaf won't return this season. Turiaf appeared in only two games this season, his second with the Timberwolves. They're his seventh NBA team in 10 seasons in the league. NBA.com

The former All-Star center reciprocated those warm feelings back to the $124 million forward after Chandler’s Mavericks whipped the 5-22 Knicks, 107-87, on Tuesday night. “I do. I do,” Chandler responded when asked if he feels bad for his former teammate. “He’s a competitor. I laced it up and went to battle with him the last three years. I know what kind of competitor he is. I know he wants to win. I know he’s going to take a lot of this heat. It’s unfortunate because he’s a helluva player in our league. It’s unfortunate. “It’s so tough. He signed a contract coming back here with expectations of doing everything in his power to take his team to the next level. “Ultimately, I feel he will with the right pieces.” New York Daily News

Larkin said he wants to re-sign with the Knicks, and they left that door open when informing him they were declining his option. “I love it here. I want to be here,” Larkin said. “Obviously, I want to help bring the Knicks back to what they used to be.” But the Knicks can offer Larkin only up to the $1,675,320 he would have earned on his rookie-scale contract. Any other team can pay more. NBCSports.com

First, Walmart lists the doll as being “Anthony Carmelo.” And second, the doll isn’t Carmelo Anthony at all. It’s Jeremy Lin, who last played for the Knicks in 2012. The doll goes for $13.88, a far cry from the $22.5 million the real Melo will make this year for a team that’s currently 5-21. The Knicks Blog

Derek Fisher’s job of developing the Knicks into a cohesive unit has been compromised by two-thirds of the roster being in the final year of their contracts, according to the head coach. “That’s a reality of this game,” Fisher said on Sunday. “You have a number of guys that are thinking about how they’re going to provide for their families and where their career is going and whether they’re going to be here or on another team and all the ramifications of those decisions. “So that’s not easy stuff to process. And then on top of that they’re being asked to sacrifice more and do less in order to win so it’s not a great combination for cohesion and team chemistry but I do think there are enough guys in the locker room that want to do it the right way and so that’s why we’ve had a chance a lot of nights to win. But I don’t think anybody’s giving up on what we’re trying to do at this point.” New York Daily News

In an interview at the hospital, Evans said that Vanchiro’s father told her that Vanchiro awoke apparently disoriented and leapt from the building. She said that Vanchiro sustained severe brain damage and a fractured spinal cord in the fall, and that his brain had stopped functioning Sunday morning. The hospital listed Vanchiro’s condition as critical as of 11:45 p.m. Sunday. New York Times

Evans said Vanchiro had been behaving erratically since being ejected from Madison Square Garden on Dec. 2, when the Nets faced the Knicks. Video taken from the stands showed Vanchiro, who lost the lower part of his left leg in an accident several years ago, being carried out of the arena by multiple security guards. In the videos, which were widely shared in the news media that night and in the following days, Vanchiro is missing his prosthetic left leg, which he said that he had removed during an exchange with the security guards. “After that, he was a completely different person,” Evans said. “He was paranoid. He was erratic. He was frightened. He was horrified. He was a bit delusional. He was having a lot of trouble sleeping. He couldn’t sleep at all. When he would sleep, or try to sleep, it would only take about 10 or 15 minutes before he would jump up screaming covered in sweat.” New York Times
