Carmelo Anthony Taking Less Money Is More Symbolic Than Helpful for NY Knicks

10 Updates

For athletes in New York, how you're perceived matters a great deal. For New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony, shaving a little money off his massive new contract and losing the "full-max" designation is an investment in his reputation more than anything else. Anthony, undoubtedly and deservedly, could have taken every penny owed him. And while it's silly to begrudge someone for not leaving money on the table needlessly, Anthony now gets to control the narrati ...

The New York Knicks have had an impressive offseason, putting themselves in great position for a rebuild over the next two years. However, the upcoming season is still an important one for them, as they look to improve on their woeful showing in 2013-14 and capitalize on a more open Eastern Conference.

Why Next Season Will Prove Erik Spoelstra Is a Top-5 NBA Coach

It’s often the nature of truly well-run organizations, be it in sports or elsewhere, that the loss of one transcendent talent merely means anointing the next in line. With LeBron James now officially committed to a Cleveland homecoming, the Miami Heat—a franchise with a trio of titles in less than 10 years—face just such a towering task. But for all their love and loyalty, it’s not Chris Bosh or Dwyane Wade who stands ...

Carmelo Anthony has made his decision, earning the faith and money of a New York Knicks franchise that has everything riding on his performance next season. No pressure, though, Melo. Free agency, in all its ambivalence-promoting glory, wasn't the main course. It was the appetizer. Next season is the main course, after which the Knicks will be treating themselves to dessert, selecting from a menu consisting of only two options: Another Superstar a la mode or ...

Are New York Knicks Closer to NBA Title Contention Than We Think?

Professional athletes tend to avoid being overtly political. But that doesn't stop them from talking like a politician. Case in point: the New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony, who recently told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman that his decision to return on a five-year, $124 million tender—this after weeks of suitor speculation—wasn’t “about the money.” "I want to win. I don't care about the money," Anthony added. "I believe Phil [Jackson] will do what he has to do to take care of th ...

Predicting the NY Knicks' Opening Night Starting Lineup

It’s easy to view the recent re-signing of Carmelo Anthony as the most crucial move for the future of the New York Knicks. And it most certainly is that. Really, though, retaining Anthony was merely the first step in what president Phil Jackson sees as a multi-year process intended to do what no Knicks team has done in more than 40 years: bring a championship banner to Madison Square Garden (from ESPN New York's Ian Begley). Jackson doubtless has plenty more moves up his sleeves. In the ...
