Carmelo Anthony had the full attention of basketball fans on Friday, when the New York Knicks forward and best basketball player to come out of Baltimore scored a franchise-record 62 points in the Knicks' 125-96 win over the Charlotte Bobcats at Madison Square Garden. The scoring total, a personal best for Anthony, 29, and most ever at the new Garden, could have been even greater had the former Towson Catholic star played more than 39 minutes . Though 62 points is nearly twice his high for the Owls during his All-Metro Player of the Year season (37 points against National Christian as a junior)

Baltimore basketball fans got a taste of something old and something new Thursday as the city hosted an NBA game for the first time since 1999. The star attraction was Baltimore native Carmelo Anthony, playing professionally in his hometown for the first time ever. The New York Knicks forward is one of the biggest names in the NBA, and his homecoming brought extra juice to what could've been just another preseason contest against the Washington Wizards. So did the presence of former Baltimore Bullets and Knicks greats revisiting Baltimore Arena, where they waged one of the league's best rivalries in the 1960s and early 1970s.

AN OPEN LETTER to Carmelo Anthony: Hope you had a good Christmas and that the ankle's healing. You would prefer to be up and about, but year's end is always a good time to kick back and reflect, and you have a lot to look back on. When we met at Syracuse University, you asked if the interview could be conducted in a team room. We chatted while you surfed CNN and ESPN, searching for news from Ohio high school officials weighing in on the eligibility of your good friend LeBron James. Something about payments on his Humvee.

MIAMI - For a few seconds during Game 5 of the playoff series between the Miami Heat and New Orleans Hornets, it felt like everyone in AmericanAirlines Arena was holding their breath. Less than a minute remained, the shot clock was ticking down, and Miami and New Orleans were fighting for their playoff lives. The score was tied 80-80, and the ball was headed toward Heat rookie Dwyane Wade, who was standing all alone in the corner. Wade didn't have time to think, much less set his feet, so, in one fluid motion, he snagged a pass from teammate Lamar Odom and flipped a high-arcing three-pointer toward the basket.

As reports of basketball hero Carmelo Anthony's appearance in a controversial DVD disc flew throughout the city yesterday, a dozen children darted around on the worn blacktop at the Mount Royal Recreation Center where the NBA star's talents were nurtured. Teenage boys playing a game of five-per-side flag football called to mind similar games played nearly a decade ago by the young Anthony. Darrell Corbett, a recreation instructor at Mount Royal, said he coached Anthony "since he was in sixth grade."

For DaJuan Summers, the tattoo holds a certain power. It provides him solace and strength by reminding him of his roots. "It has my name on it," says his mother, Twana, a supermarket meat cutter who raised her three kids alone in Baltimore after her husband died when DaJuan was just 3. "And it has the names of [his sister] Regina and [brother] Malik. He says when things get tight, he grabs that tattoo."

Carmelo Anthony fully expects the memories to envelop him as he trots onto the court at Baltimore Arena. The long days dribbling on the asphalt beside West Baltimore's Murphy Homes projects. The early games at Robert C. Marshall Recreation Center, when he was just a skinny, goofy kid, hoping he might become good enough to earn a college scholarship. It all happened, what, 10 minutes from the court where Anthony will suit up for the New York Knicks on Thursday night? Though his professional allegiance lies with the Big Apple, Anthony will be straight Charm City when he dons an NBA uniform for the first time in his hometown.

When the Washington Wizards announced Wednesday that they would play a preseason game against the New York Knicks in Baltimore this fall, Frank Remesch wasn't surprised. As general manager of the Baltimore Arena, which will host the Oct. 17 exhibition, Remesch said the success of a Washington Capitals preseason game against the Nashville Predators in 2011 helped sway Ted Leonsis, who owns both the Capitals and Wizards. “I think it's kind of common sense,” Remesch said, noting that the Capitals will take part in a second Baltimore Hockey Classic against the Boston Bruins on Sept.

If you're curious as to what color New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony's blood is, it's black and purple. Growing up in Baltimore, the former Towson Catholic star was an avid Ravens fan growing up and his support for the team hasn't diminished since. In a short video series by ESPN titled “Where Athletes are Fans” - not quite the proper title for his experience watching the game - Anthony looks back on the Ravens' Super Bowl XLVII victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Carmelo Anthony is one of New York's biggest sports stars, but the Baltimore native made his allegiances clear at the Knicks' training camp Wednesday. "I've been an Orioles fan since I was like eight years old," Anthony told ESPN New York . "I actually have a tattoo, too. I've never been a Yankees fan. I'm close with some of the guys on the team. I support them. I have some mixed feelings right now. Here in New York you have to support the Yankees, but I'm an Orioles fan. " With the Knicks not playing a preaseason game Friday, Anthony said he plans to attend a potential Game 5 and would "wear an Orioles hat. " "I watched the games, man.

Don't blame Carmelo Anthony if the Knicks don't match Jeremy Lin's offer sheet from the Houston Rockets. Anthony said in a text message with Yahoo! Sports on Sunday that if the Knicks don't match the offer sheet for the point guard, it's not because of Anthony. Still, Anthony didn't appear excited at the prospect of the Knicks offering what he views as an oddly structured contract. Yahoo! Sports reported that the Knicks are unlikely to bring Lin back. “It's up to the organization to say they want to match that ridiculous contract that's out there,” Anthony told reporters following Team USA's practice Sunday.

Carmelo Anthony stood completely motionless for minutes on end on Tuesday while others circled around and looked on. Madame Tussauds wax museum called it a prank.   New York Knicks fans just call it, “running the offense.”   Seriously, though, this was a nice show of community outreach from Melo, during which he surprised museum visitors thinking the real Anthony was a wax sculpture . The look of shock and surprise and delight on the faces of the startled fans said it all.   But if Madame Tussauds really wanted to shock and surprise and delight people, they didn't even need the real Anthony.
