In Portland Thursday, Chandler initially refused to speak to reporters, but...

Reigning MVP LeBron James is the front-runner to win again. He showed it last Sunday at the Garden when he had 29 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists, and shut down Anthony in the fourth quarter.

James is the most complete player in the game right now....

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Mike Woodson said the MRI on Carmelo Anthony’s injured right knee showed he has “some fluid build-up” and that’s what’s causing the stiffness.

The Knicks aren’t playing hard enough.

We’re paraphrasing, but that’s basically what Carmelo Anthony said before the Knicks faced the Raptors, and you can’t argue with him.

The Knicks have slid since starting the season 18-5. They’re not showing the same passion or urgency and they have been exposed defensively.

So Anthony was asked what has to change after the Knicks gave up 125...

Many Knicks are familiar with Kenyon Martin.

Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith, Marcus Camby and Jason Kidd all played with him before. Martin’s most success came playing with Kidd and the Nets, where they reached two Finals together. But that was more than a decade ago.
