Carmelo Anthony

The Tribeca Diary

I’m sitting on a leather couch in an upscale bar on Fulton Street and New York Giant cornerback Prince Amukamura is a few feet to my right. My colleague/friend/socializer Kris Venezia is next to me and we engage in conversation to avoid any awkward stares in our direction, which we knowingly received from many people, including Hannah Storm’s younger daughters to our left. You see we inadvertently had situated ourselves in the VIP section of the bar, an open room with neon lighting that offered us a chance to breathe.

Knicks and Celtics Swapping Places

Last season the Boston Celtics went on to surprise many in getting to the Conference Finals, then taking Miami to a seventh game. Boston’s aging big three of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen were in year five of an original three year plan, and most media members declared their title window closed.

Knicks Report 1/15: Off to England

Let me start off by saying the Knicks did manage to end their 3-game skid by beating the Hornets 100-87 on Sunday. Yes, the defense came out flat in the first quarter. Yes, Amar’e Stoudemire is still not back to his old form. Yes, they are still having trouble at the point guard position with Raymond Felton out. And yes, Carmelo Anthony revealed he has been fasting. But with 3-days rest along the trip to London and another 3 on the way back, I believe this mini-vacation over the Atlantic is just what the doctor ordered.

Knicks Have Come a Long Way Since May

"I can't even remember last year to be honest," Carmelo Anthony said in front of his locker on Sunday when asked about what’s different this year. Well, let me remind everyone as I take you back to May.

The final horn sounded, and LeBron James wrapped his arms around Anthony in a warm embrace. Despite their head-to-head scoring matchup being even at 139 points apiece, the Knicks season ended and Miami moved on to eventually win the Championship.

The Nets Draw First Blood

The atmosphere at 620 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn was nothing like anyone had seen before. The Nets were cheered in their home arena, Knicks fans were drowned out, and Carmelo Anthony was showered in boos just 3 miles from where he was born. It wasn’t something unique and isolated in history; rather, something new.

A rivalry? Deron Williams tried to downplay the hype. “It’s one game, it was a good win for us…we can’t just be excited like we just won a championship. We didn’t win the championship of New York.” 

Knicks Season Hinges on Age-Old Question

Last year, future Hall-of-Famers Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Paul Pierce, and Dirk Nowitzki, who had accounted for all but two of the previous thirteen Larry O’Brien trophies, failed to add another Championship to their collection. It was the first time since the 1997-98 season that none of their respective teams reached the finals, and ABC couldn’t have scripted a more appealing showdown.

No Need to Fear, New York

Upon examining the Knicks’ 2012 Roster, a Knicks fan has to be happy. That said, the absence of one “Jeremy Lin” immediately changes the attitude of many. If you can get past the reality of Lin leaving, you‘ll soon warm up to the squad Mike Woodson will lead to the court come October.
