A week after members of the Minnesota Lynx wore shirts condemning the killings of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling and the shootings that left five Dallas police officers dead, the WNBA decided to fine players from the New York Liberty, Phoenix Mercury, and Indiana Fever who have been wearing black shirts in…
The members of the infamous Banana Boat crew have been a few of the most politically vocal major athletes of their generation. Back in 2012 LeBron James and Dwyane Wade led the Miami Heat in wearing hoodies in protest of Trayvon Martin’s death, and last weekend Carmelo Anthony used Instagram to call for his fellow…
Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony just posted a message to his Instagram page in which he asks his fellow professional athletes to become more politically active, instructing them to demand action from politicians and not to worry about losing endorsement deals.
Little man here must live in a state of perpetual basketball disappointment: his hometown team is the New Orleans Pelicans, and he likes Carmelo Anthony. So if Carmelo Anthony is in town and he has tickets in the lower bowl, he’s going to sprint onto the court and get a hug, dadgummit.
The Knicks have had a rather tempestuous last month. They fired Derek Fisher, got into just the dumbest heckling controversy, and had to hold a press conference denying that Kurt Rambis was, in fact, horny online. On top of all that, they’ve lost 16 of 19. Kristaps Porzingis’ continued delightfulness is about all they…
Ah yes, we’re finally right back where we belong, in a world where the New York Knicks aren’t a surprising feel-good story, but a bumbling franchise that specializes in pulling bad PR out of thin air. I’m actually surprised it took us this long to get back here.
The excitement of having a good, young player has worn off, and Knicksdom has returned to its resting state: terrible and depressing. But still remarkably expensive, especially if you were fool enough to spring for floor seats. Like the dude who got kicked out for heckling Carmelo Anthony with four minutes left in New…
After the whistle had blown, too. Even no knee cartilage-havin’ Amar’e Stoudemire has a higher vertical than this.
“I was so involved with creating a positive atmosphere around the Knicks,” Amar’e Stoudemire said before Miami’s 98-81 win in his first trip back to Madison Square Garden since being bought out last year. “Now it’s gone the opposite way.”
Well shit, man, nobody’s prepared to deal with big NBA news the morning after the Super Bowl, but here we are. According to multiple reports, Derek Fisher is out as head coach of the New York Knicks.
What could possibly get the whole Internet talking about a January afternoon Sixers-Knicks game? The combination of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and a free League Pass preview. Just when we were ready to rub a Sixers win in the face of our New York-based co-workers, ‘Melo had to pull this rabbit out of his magic hat.…
Everytown for Gun Safety, an advocacy group that seeks to end gun violence in America through stricter gun control laws, has cut a series of ads with NBA stars Chris Paul, Steph Curry, Carmelo Anthony, and Joakim Noah.
Carmelo Anthony has never been one to shy away from mixing it up with his fans and haters on social media, and his latest response to a rude Instagram commenter is that of a man who is feeling pretty fed up.
Carmelo Anthony has made no secret of the fact that he cares deeply about his personal brand, greatly depleting his coolness levels. Now, he’s gone and launched himself into another level of lame-assness.
Here is a photo, taken from Dwyane Wade’s Instagram, of Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, and LeBron James drinking some fine wine together in the Bahamas. My two questions: would you wear a t-shirt with your own nickname on it, and is Carmelo a bit faded?
I have no idea why pro tennis player CoCo Vandeweghe was asked for her opinion on Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks, other than the fact that her uncle is former NBA player and GM Kiki Vandeweghe, but I sure am glad it happened.
According to Empire of Soccer, the New York Knicks’ star forward is interested in reviving the Puerto Rican NASL squad, the Puerto Rico Islanders, which was disbanded in 2012.
We more or less knew this was coming, but Carmelo Anthony says it's "very likely" that he'll shut it down for the season after a brief appearance in the All-Star Game. The Knicks' tankjob is going swimmingly.
The Knicks lost again last night, with a starting five of Jose Calderon, Langston Galloway, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Smith, and Lou Amundson. Removing Anthony would be like putting a bolt through a broken-down horse's brain. But that's a pretty accurate simile, come to think of it, and it's no less than the Knicks need…
