Anthony will get large yearly salary advance

Newly re-signed F Carmelo Anthony will get half of his yearly salary upfront, the maximum allowed by the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement.

Anthony, who signed a 7-year, $124 million deal earlier this summer, will receive half of his $22.5 million salary in one lump some payment this season  (Wall Street Journal, Aug. 15).

His contract is set up like that every year meaning ,$62 million in total salary will be paid up front. It’s an unusual salary structure, but something the Knicks did with J.R. Smith, who has a similar mechanism on his 3-year, $18 million deal. The payouts are more about timing and do not affect the salary cap.

Anyone remember Jerome Jordan? I ran into him in LA near the Staples Center the other day. Man he's tall.

Picked up my Melo jersey on Saturday as promised if he resigned. Love the Away Jerseys.

I would say this summer on TKB has exceeded the Jeremy Lin Summer of No Return in terms of me needing to use Advil.

My 49ers sucked today.  Most of the D-line didn't play and as a result Peyton was having milk and cookies in the pocket.

@BiggieTKB  The difference here is rather than the Catholic Church denying it despite obvious evidence that cannot be covered up you have many different powerful governments with a vested interest in covering up intelligent life.

At this point though, I'm more interested in FTL travel.

@OLDKNICK3 good find!  


I think team usa will win with their defensive pressure and outside shooting.  They are stacked even without the big names.  


Once again, James Harden proves that he is basketball hog.. watching him saturday go nut was sickening.   A true and total ball hog.

@OLDKNICK3 I don't like that speculative post.  I want no parts of Jordan crawford.

Given our success after we inserted STAT and JR into the starting linup last season, my choice would be.

Calderon

JR

Melo

STAT

Dalembert

@siknick yeah, at least Football will distract us for 2 days a week for the next 2 1/2 months.

@stillmatic @OLDKNICK3 I believe JR will and should start.  He gives us the best balance on both sides of the ball at that position.  THjr is a 6th man.  He can come off the bench and provide that spark.  Shump will and should get major minutes.

@Mel Brizzy @NoVaCaInE Not really I just like the color better than the Home Jerseys. The last Knicks jersey I bought was a Sprewell jersey.

@BiggieTKB @that3agoodpoint  those technologies work in theory, but are not at the point of being implemented. Black powder propulsion can work in space and has been proven with the ability to fire a bullet in space as well. Again, it is not practical yet.

@stillmatic @that3agoodpoint @BiggieTKB  Oh I know. The mathematics of it all indicate that it's impossible to think otherwise. I'm just talking about that major governments here on earth have a vested interest because of the fear of panic it would cause people who have never come around to accepting it as even a possibility for extraterrestrial life.

@OLDKNICK3 @that3agoodpoint  1 of 2 things, 1 the report is completely wrong and looking to get clicks and 2 the report is leaning on Crawford's agent in hopes of drawing up more interest because the Knicks and fan Jackson are involved.

I'm not a fan of Dalembert either, but my philosophy has always been finish with your best 5 players. I think that Aldrich and Smith are more mobile and would probably be better on a second unit that pushed the tempo. You could get Larkin, Shump, THJ, and possibly Early out and running with Aldrich clearing the boards and making the outlet pass.

@stillmatic @Mel Brizzy @OLDKNICK3 shump is a plug.  He can plug into positions 1-3 for defensive purposes.  At one point during last season he was shooting a high percentage from 3.  


It was around the time he scored 27 points against san antonio.  If he can get back to that then he's would be a major cog at sg.

@stillmatic @Knicks_Fanatic  See, right now I believe that our best 5 to start the game may not be our best 5 to finish the game simply because our guard situation is so fluid.

And our bigs just have so many question marks.

The only given is Melo.

@KingTkb @Mel Brizzy @stillmatic @OLDKNICK3 all we need is one more legit star..to be contenders in the eastern conference.
