07:53 AM ET 01.08 | Carmelo Anthony may yet hear from the league after various reports had him heading toward the Celtics locker room after Monday's loss. It was the low point of what had been a shining season for Anthony. Knicks coach Mike Woodson is right when he said, "Melo is capable of having bad night. Melo's been pretty damn good for our ballclub." But this must be the last night he allows himself to get baited to the point where he loses control of his emotions. ... The Knicks lost their cool against the Bulls earlier this season and now lost their composure against the Celtics. It won't take much to build a reputation for being thin-skinned. If opponents believe the Knicks can be rattled, they'll be quick to tweak them in hopes of getting them off their game.

Thugs disguised as rich Basketball players. Melo needs to stop wearing those phone cardigan sweaters to try and make him look like Carlton Banks.

Bottom line is basically every Boston player had a great game and beat usOkc lost to wash, SA lost....ish happens.Can't get too high or low and dissect every gameBut this totally proves that NY goes as melo goes, which is fine.He's played great this year, not going to kill him over one game

New York should just trade Stoudamire, Knicks were -15 when he was on the floor

The Celtics have pushed the Knicks around for Years, somehow, their system seems to work!

That is not so easy to do with his contract and injury past.Amare, isn't a problem, as he's only playing back up minutes nowNY gets into trouble when they start chucking up shots too early....

Amare for Gasol?

- equal contracts
- Knicks get their low post offense, less 3 pointers
- Lakers gets their 18 foot jumpers from Amare
