07:10 AM ET 05.21 | His former head coach has picked a side, and it's squarely in the corner of his one-time star forward. Jim Boeheim maintains little hope that former Syracuse star Carmelo Anthony can win an NBA title with the New York Knicks. "Not on that team," Boeheim said. "He did what he can do. ... Everybody's killing him but Tyson Chandler just didn't try to catch the ball. He threw him the ball and Tyson Chandler went like this (Boeheim dodged in a chair in his office in the Carmelo K. Anthony Center). He was wide open. He should have been looking for the ball right here. Kenyon Martin should have been looking for the ball. They both went like this (Boeheim dodged again)."

Why look for something you know won't come your way?

This is dumb. Chandler was just stating the obvious. The team needs more ball movement. Too much Iso.

You guys are idiots. Melo passes the ball, but why should he continue to pass it when the guy's he's passing it to don't know what the hell to do with when they get it. Melo is not the problem here.

Knick need to get younger & more offensive production from their big men. None of the bigs averaged in double figure scoring in playoffs & were injured all season. Bad combination. Wallace, Camby, & Stoudemire were non factors. Kenyon Martin was average at best. Not a recipe for a championship.

Nope. The Knicks are not built for a title win.

Wow. Dolan really messed this team up.
