06:55 AM ET 05.08 | Bernard King wanted to set the record straight Tuesday, one day after tweets attributed to his account took a few shots at Carmelo Anthony. [King said] it was not him but an associate who posted three critiques of [Anthony] on King's Twitter account Monday, and he disavowed the sentiments that were expressed. "I didn't post it or tweet it, and I'm disappointed it came out like this," the former Knick and recently elected Hall of Famer said as he prepared to serve as an analyst for MSG's postgame show for Game 2 of the Pacers-Knicks series Tuesday night. King said when traveling, as he was Monday, he entrusted his account to an associate whom he would not name or characterize. He said doing so had not been a problem previously.

All these little dramas don't matter at this time. Knicks gotta focus on what they need to do to get past the Pacers... they are not pushovers.

puhhhlease. This is the same Pacers team that needed 6 games to put away the freaking Hawks.

This series about the Knicks. NOT Pacers. If 'Melo and JR suck, the Pacers win. If Knicks can just play their game and good D, this should end 4-1.

Melo looked like a completely different player last night. He made it a point to get other guys going. He has to realize that he will get his shot whenever but when the other guys are going NY is hard to beat. I guess one of his favorite players ripping him really hit home.

Yes on paper Knicks should win. However they've been lethargic since game 2 against the Celts. They need to learn to play with consistent effort. The talent and will is there but the heart.. not so much. STAT plays with a lot of pride so I'm hoping his comeback helps with the team morale... Chandler needs to assert himself a bit more.

The King has spoken, but The New King is not listening!!!!

This series will go 7, slight edge to the Pacers.
