08:08 AM ET 03.18 | Without even playing, Carmelo Anthony can make news from sea to shining sea. [Anthony], who missed his second straight game after having fluid drained from his right knee, declined to speak with reporters as he exited Staples Center following the Clippers 93-80 victory. "I'm not talking," was all Anthony would say after having spent the game watching from the locker room. It was the first time Anthony had been seen by the media since flying on from Denver to New York on Thursday to have his injury treated. Anthony was transported to New York and then back to Los Angeles on the private jet owned by Garden Chairman James Dolan. Anthony has now missed five of the Knicks last seven games.

not sure why this is a big deal. Sometimes you just don't wanna talk to anyone. I feel that way everyday. I never talk to the media.

I wouldn't speak to the media either. No matter what the guy says its spun into the wrong thing. So if they're going to make it up, let them make it all up.

Eversince Melo wasn't playing good, Apple has disappeared. It's because his team is the Melo Knicks... Lovesanity is helping the Rockets get into the playoffs...

The Rockets can get into the playoffs or not, but the fact remains, whatever they do they paid way too much for Jeremy Linn. On that, Apple and I agree whole heartedly.
