I love his game, but I'm just going off of stat sheets, the highlights, and P&T analysis... I didn't actually watch the game but I will today... Thanks for the breakdown my dude

I really wanna see CLEarly get going today, Shane & Tyler too.

Thanasis is gonna be a problem, idk why but I think the Triangle is perfect for him. He's a great defender for the system & can develop good off ball skills.

This. Melo wanted to stay home.

Any person (lawyer, medical field, CEO, politician) in their business career should look at job opportunities across the board when there's an opening. However, if you have as many or more uncertainties in those other situations on the table with a chance to INCREASE your pay grade in your current location, 90% of the time, that person will stay.


LA= no coach, old Kobe, little to no supporting cast
Rockets= too many ball hogs, not enough defense, Western Conference gauntlet
Miami= enough said... potential circus / image blow, no LeBron, older D Wade
Chi= coach with no job security, stingy management, a serious pay cut, moving Boozer or Gibson, injury prone DRose, players run into the ground and are tired by the playoffs


NY = comfortable wife & kid, upgrade in pay, home town team, fans love you, new management you can trust & have seen results (Fish = 5 rings, Rambis = 8 rings, Phil = 13 rings)

Anyone thinking logically would've stayed. Zen + 1 Ring in NY + $120 Million in NY = Worth it.

LAS VEGAS — Chicago is still the Second City. And New York is still home for Carmelo Anthony.

As expected, Anthony chose the Knicks over the Bulls on Saturday on the 12th day of free agency, according to NBA sources. The Knicks and Anthony were negotiating the contract Saturday and no official announcement will be made until Sunday.

Anthony had five contract offers from which to choose, including the five-year, $129 million max. But indications are he will accept less than the maximum, in excess of $121 million, as Jackson has encouraged. The Post first reported last week Anthony may take less than the max offered to give the Knicks flexibility in 2015 and 2016 free agency.

One scenario being discussed is taking the $22.4 million max the first year and taking a slight pay decrease the second year instead of the customary 7.5-percent raise.

“It’s getting closer to sounding like Carmelo will be rejoining the team,’’ coach Derek Fisher said Saturday after the Knicks’ summer-league victory over the Blazers. “That’s great news. I’m excited to hear it’s possible and at least it’s closer to being real.’’

The Knicks were the strong favorite entering and during the free-agency process, and team president Phil Jackson said earlier this week he expected a positive resolution. Now he’s got it.

Because the contract negotiations were ongoing, Jackson wouldn’t discuss his finest victory as Knicks president.

“We don’t have anything yet to stack up so rather than talk about it,’’ Jackson said. “We’ll wait. We’ll be there.”

Though the Knicks roster for this season doesn’t appear as strong as the Bulls’ collection of talent, Anthony in the end decided he wanted to align his future with Jackson and attempt to follow in the footsteps of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, two superstars whom Jackson turned into champions.

According to sources, Anthony was happy with the addition of point guard Jose Calderon and the hiring of Fisher. Entering free agency, Anthony gave strong hints he didn’t want to uproot his family and The Post reported his wife, La La Vazquez, didn’t want him to leave the Knicks.

“At the end of the day that’s my first priority, to stay,’’ Anthony said during the All-Star break. “That’s my first priority. My priority is to figure it out together. My priority is not to just because I say I want to be a free agent, is to go leave. I never was a guy that comes into a situation and basically when it’s not going well to leave like that. That’s not my personality. I came to New York, and I said it before, I wanted to retire a Knick. That’s not something I would [expletive] with, I said it, I meant it. That’s how I feel.’’

His words proved prophetic, though who knows what could have happened if the Bulls had found a way to open up the requisite cap space. That’s why the Knicks remained confident throughout the process. The Bulls would have needed a tricky sign-and-trade to get it done or have Anthony accept a four-year, $73 million pact.

“I’m not surprised. I would’ve been surprised if he left. He’s a winner, [a] competitor,’’ said Knicks power forward Kenyon Martin, an Anthony friend and free agent attending the summer league in Las Vegas. “I think he wants to bring championship to New York.’’

Jackson still has his $3.3 million mini mid-level exception and has shown interest in Washington’s Trevor Booker and New Orleans power forward Jason Smith.

Anthony had wanted to play with Pau Gasol in New York and Jackson made a bid, but the former Laker reached an agreement with the Bulls on Saturday.

Free agency was on Anthony’s bucket list, and he visited four cities — Chicago, Houston, Dallas and Los Angeles. The Bulls provided the most powerful presentation, focusing more on the roster and the team’s ability to win a championship than on finances.

As Jackson said Thursday, he and Anthony had “struck a chord.’’ Still, Anthony waited two extra days after the official signing period commenced before committing.

“I think he’s enjoying the process of free agency,’’ Knicks center Cole Aldrich told The Post. “I know all the stuff he enjoyed in New York.’’

Jackson fully expected to win this battle against the two clubs he coached to a combined 11 titles in the Bulls and Lakers, who weren’t as big a factor as some reports suggested. But he expected to hear from Anthony last Monday.

“I don’t think the money ever was the most important part,’’ said a source close to Anthony.

“I think his concern was could they make the team better this season. He is comfortable in the outer years but needed to be convinced about the upcoming year.’’

Carmelo Anthony, Knicks reach deal

Anthony and the Knicks had been in the final stages of negotiations since Saturday.

Anthony announced the deal himself via his personal website on Sunday afternoon.

"A few years ago I dreamed of coming back to New York City, the place of my birth, and on February 23, 2011 that became a reality," Anthony said in a statement. "This organization has supported me and in return, I want to stay and build here with this city and my team. At this pivotal juncture in my career, I owed it to myself and my family to explore all of the options available to me. Through it all, my heart never wavered."

Anthony was being courted by the Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers. He met with each team last week.

He was choosing between the Knicks and Bulls as recently as Friday, according to sources.

"I will always remember this chapter in my life. In the end, I am a New York Knick at heart," he said in the statement. "I am looking forward to continue my career in Orange & Blue and to work with Phil Jackson, a champion who builds championship teams. Madison Square Garden is the mecca of basketball and I am surrounded by the greatest fans in the world."

LAS VEGAS — Phil Jackson said Carmelo Anthony took less than the maximum $129 million contract, and the Zen Master declared he needs his star player to maximize his teammates to win a championship.

Anthony officially announced he was coming back on his website early Sunday afternoon, writing an essay with the headline “My Heart, My City.’’ Anthony wrote: “I am a New York Knick at heart.’’

Anthony took less to stay with the Knicks — estimated at $122-$123 million over five years. But it was still a lot more than what the cap-space challenged runner-up Bulls could offer — 4 years, $73 million.

Jackson confirmed The Post’s reports Anthony structured the deal to give the Knicks more cap space in 2015. It is believed he didn’t take his annual 7.5 percent raise in Year 2 and may have taken a tiny pay decrease. Under collective bargaining agreement rules, a player can receive as high as a 7.5 percent pay raise annually.

“He did exactly what we kind of asked him to do,’’ Jackson said. “Give us a break in the early part of the contract when we have some wiggle room — hopefully big enough wiggle room — next year when we can exploit it.’’

Anthony’s sacrifice in Year 2 likely opens up about $2 million more in cap space for 2015, but the rest of his annual wages suffer by not taking the raise.

Meanwhile, Jackson emphatically said Anthony has to buy into this triangle-like new system that will promote sharing the ball and taking the load off him offensively. Otherwise, Jackson feels the Knicks won’t compete for a title any time soon.

“It depends how quickly our team evolves,’’ Jackson said of how soon the club will be in title contention. “If we evolve as a team, we can do it rather quickly. If we’re still going to sit and rely on Carmelo to do everything, it’s not going to happen.

“We put that load on him, it’s not going to happen. That’s what we’ve wanted to a.ssure him. We want to evolve as a team and that sometimes means the old buying into the system and giving in to the process. And the process can take time. Hopefully shorter time than longer.’’

The new regime believes Mike Woodson played Anthony too many minutes and didn’t set him up to succeed late in games as a result with a predictable offense. His final-minute shooting stats in close games were abysmal last season.

“I talked to Carmelo about that during the process. One of the things about the [triangle] offensive system, you can’t try to score every time you touch the ball,’’ Jackson said. “You have to participate and have all guys be involved.

“You also have to have guys strong enough if things break down, you need that man who can get a shot on his own you, have a guy who’s a great bailout guy in Carmelo.

“That’s what he’s looking for. He admired San Antonio’s game and how they played. That’s the way we want to play.”

On the 13th day of free agency, the Brooklyn-born Anthony sent a message to the fans. He will not stage a press conference so the words on his website stand for now.

Anthony praised Jackson as “a champion who builds championship teams,” lauded the Knicks fans as “the greatest in the world” and said he wants to “build here with this city.”

“A few years ago I dreamed of coming back to New York City, the place of my birth, and on February 23, 2011 that became a reality,” Anthony wrote. “This organization has supported me and in return, I want to stay and build here with this city and my team.”

Soon after, the Knicks made it official with their own announcement with Jackson calling Anthony “the cornerstone’’ in a statement.

Knicks coach Derek Fisher didn’t speak to the press Sunday but said in the statement: “I have had the opportunity to be around some of the greatest players in our game, and now I have the honor of coaching Carmelo.’’

Jackson said the Knicks had “implications’’ for several days Anthony was coming back and the delay related to which of the five contract offers he’d take.

That’s why the Knicks had been so confident all last week.

“There never was any tension in our conversations,’’ Jackson said of his three meetings with Melo. “I think it went very well with us. All the conversations were relaxed, comfortable. You got the feeling he really wanted to listen to what was offered and he wanted us to hear him.

“I’m glad Carmelo has seen we have the vision and trusted us with what he implied and impressed upon us — his desire to win and be on a competitive team. Our message to him is we are going to be a competitive team. It may not be instantaneous. We may not be able to just drop in and win a championship. But that’s the direction we’re going.’’
