Oh, if only we could get our hands on the tapes of the conversations that Carmelo Anthony had on the court against the Bulls and Hornets last weekend…
As we told you yesterday, the Knicks started secretly recording every single conversation that 'Melo has on the court during home games last Friday when Chicago came to town. Knicks owner James Dolan hired a couple of audio technicians to start recording 'Melo's convos because he wants to avoid having another situation like the one that played out between 'Melo and Kevin Garnett last week. But, late yesterday, the New York Post asked 'Melo if he knew that he was being recorded during the Knicks' last two home games. And, he said that he was just as clueless as the rest of us.
"I wasn't aware of it," he said after the Knicks touched down in London on Tuesday to play a game against the Pistons later this week. "I found out on the plane [ride]."
With that in mind, the tapes of 'Melo's conversations from the Bulls and Hornets games probably feature some golden quotes on them since he didn't know he was being recorded. But, 'Melo was also quick to point out that, regardless of whether or not he's being recorded, he's still going to keep doing exactly what he was doing before he found out about Dolan's new plan.
"I don't think mikes are going to stop what goes on on the court," he said. "But it was funny when I heard it. No, I wasn't upset. Not at all."
So, there you have it. 'Melo isn't mad about being recorded. Well, not right now, at least. But, we'll see how he feels if the audio from one of his on-court conversations ever does leak out. That's when things will get really interesting.
