Amid the latest report that he could be headed to the New York area — this time, to the Knicks, not the Nets — Carmelo Anthony said after practice Wednesday that he isn't affected in any way by the renewed trade speculation. The Nuggets' forward said the rumblings don't change anything about his preparations for the upcoming season, insisting, "I'm still able to wake up in the morning, smile, come here, laugh and joke with my teammates, play basketball and compete.

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)

Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said Nate Robinson was not benched for taking a shot at the wrong basket Saturday. The Knicks inbounded to Robinson in the backcourt with 0.5 seconds left in the first quarter of their 98-91 victory at New Jersey. Rather than just hold the ball, or heave one at the basket the Knicks were attacking, Robinson turned and shot at his own basket. The shot went in, but it was released after the buzzer and didn't count. D'Antoni yelled at Robinson on the court between quarters.

The Washington Wizards were banking on a number of constituencies to pack Baltimore Arena for Thursday night's exhibition game against Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks -- and they couldn't have been disappointed. The one-time home of the former Baltimore Bullets wasn't filled to the rafters, but the game drew a large, enthusiastic crowd that included a lot of fans who showed up to watch an improved Wizards team in a very intimate setting and even more who came to cheer on  Anthony (Towson Catholic)

Chris Duhon made the tiebreaking 3-pointer with 2 minutes, 3 seconds left, Danilo Gallinari followed with two more and the Knicks pulled out a 97-93 victory Thursday that snapped the three-game win streak of the visiting Bobcats. Wilson Chandler scored a season-high 27 points to lead the Knicks, who hit six 3-pointers in the final quarter and 12 overall. David Lee had 22 points and Gallinari finished with 17 for the Knicks, who have won three straight and 11 of 16. • Rafer Alston got his wish, signing with the Heat for the remainder of the season and getting the chance to play alongside Dwyane Wade again.

The Knicks have signed free agent Jonathan Bender , marking the oft-injured forward's return to the NBA after a three-year absence. The 7-foot Bender, selected out of high school by Toronto with the fifth overall pick in the 1999 draft but traded to Indiana the same day, enjoyed his best season in 2001-02, when he averaged career highs of 7.4 points and 3.1 rebounds in 78 games for the Pacers. But injuries forced Bender, 28, to miss 172 games in the next three seasons before chronic knee pain sidelined him indefinitely in February 2006.

The Knicks won't sign Allen Iverson , believing any short-term gain would hinder their plans to build for the future. Team president Donnie Walsh said Friday the team won't make any additions at this time despite its 2-9 record. He added the decision to pass on the former MVP had nothing to do with Iverson's ability to play or his character in the locker room. "I've always admired him," Walsh said. "I think he'd be a great addition for a team that's in a different position than we're in, and I hope he gets picked up."

Now for the arrival of The 13th Knick … Or not. "Our own Big Three" reunited last week, eight months after Chris Paul joked about forming it with Amare Stoudemire in his toast at Carmelo Anthony's wedding, in New York, of course. That was when Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke stomped out, went home and told his people to trade Melo. Even with Paul stuck in New Orleans, it was as if CAA, The Movie Star Agency, had brought him in for the 2011-12 Team Picture of Knick Dreams.

The Knicks acquired Anthony on Monday night, and the consensus among national columnists is that the Knicks will return to relevance with Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire, who are expected to become one of the league's top frontcourt tandems. We're still sorting out all the moving pieces of the deal (after all, this is like a 47-player deal , right?). The Knicks will reportedly send send Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov and a 2014 first-round draft pick to the Nuggets, along with more picks and cash.

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.

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.

Fred Carter didn't know Earl Monroe entered the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as a Baltimore Bullet. "Earl went into the Hall of Fame as a Bullet?" Carter said Wednesday in a phone interview. "That's surprising. " Carter - teammates and roommates with Monroe for four seasons in Baltimore - had assumed Monroe was enshrined in 1990 as a New York Knick. It's an easy mistake to make: Monroe comprised half of the famous "Rolls Royce Backcourt" with Walt "Clyde" Frazier in New York.

Heat impressive Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel The Knicks are the league's only unbeaten team. But the team playing the best is the Heat. It sounds silly to say when the Knicks spanked the Heat last week, but no team has been more impressive than Miami. The Heat are leading the league in scoring, which is trouble for the rest of the NBA. Erik Spoelstra will have his team returning to its defensive identity soon as Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis adjust. Now, the league's best defensive team has an offense that has proved difficult to defend.

At least NY not shut out Lisa Dillman Los Angeles Times Amare Stoudemire, who agreed to a max-level deal with the Knicks on Monday, has turned into an uber civic booster, a one-man chamber of commerce president, vowing to reach out to LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Tony Parker. And if he had more time he probably would have mentioned Blake Griffin, John Wall and Evan Turner. But the preemptive strike, more than anything else, does save the Knicks from the worst-case scenario — total embarrassment.

It appears Jeremy Lin is leaving New York, and for once, Knicks owner James Dolan has decided to put the checkbook down. By not matching a 3-year, $25.1 million offer sheet from the Houston Rockets, Lin is heading to Texas. Dolan has a history of throwing money at his problems -- with both the Knicks and New York Rangers, which he also owns -- and this time, he didn't. He just felt it wasn't worth it, and I have to agree. There's no question Lin can play in the NBA and produce. His 14 points and six assists per game last season are evident of that.
