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.

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.

There appears to be no end in sight to the NBA lockout, but if you're lucky enough to secure a ticket to a friendly pickup basketball game being held Tuesday night at Morgan State, you'll likely see a wealth of NBA talent squaring off. Baltimore native Carmelo Anthony has recruited a group of friends that includes two-time league Most Valuable Player LeBron James, as well as All-Star point guard Chris Paul, to form the Melo All Stars. In an effort to raise money for Anthony's various charities and stay in basketball shape, they'll take on another team stocked with NBA players led by league scoring champ and Washington native Kevin Durant.

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.

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.
