Atlantic Notes: Knicks, Melo, Nets

Carmelo Anthony‘s 62-point performance against the Bobcats last night sure was something to behold, right?  Well, not if you’re former Knicks center turned Charlotte assistant coach Patrick Ewing.  “I’m upset right now because we just lost,” Ewing told reporters, including Marc Berman of the New York Post. “I’m not talking. I have no comment on what happened.’’  He did offer some praise for ‘Melo, but when questions persisted about Anthony, Ewing got impatient, saying, “Man, I’m done.’,’  Man, it’s the morning, so we’re just getting started.  Here’s a look at the Atlantic Division..

  • With free agency looming, Anthony reminded everyone, and maybe even himself, why he came to New York, writes Ken Berger of CBSSports.com.  Despite what could be a lost season for the Knicks, the star has been surprisingly reserved about lodging public complaints about the team.
  • Chicago is much more in play for [Anthony] than L.A.,” a source told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports in reference to the Knicks‘ star.  The Bulls traded Luol Deng for draft picks and are leaning strongly toward using the amnesty provision on Carlos Boozer.  They have the ability to create a maximum contract slot for Anthony, pairing him with Derrick Rose.
  • Nets veterans Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are ready to return to Boston for the first time since the blockbuster deal, writes Baxter Holmes of the Boston Globe.

I think, at least hope, the Bulls’ FO is smarter than that. Melo isn’t a winner, he’s a stat player.
