Melo and STAT lead Team Wade to 141-140 Victory Over Team LeBron

Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire represented the Knicks very nicely in Miami tonight. They both were the marquee players in Team Wade’s victory. STAT had maybe the highlight of the night when he dunked over Kevin Durant in the 4th quarter. Melo hit a clutch 3 pointer with 2 seconds left to put the game into overtime. He finished with 30 points and 11 rebounds. While Melo left the game in overtime with a calf cramp, Amar’e took over. He had 5 big points including 2 classic Amar’e style awkward looking shots.

Melo again looked in shape and he actually played some good defense tonight. Despite the fact that there were no real big men on Team LeBron, Stoudemire did look very good tonight.

Melo Reveals Offseason Surgeries, Weight Loss

 

 

Sunday night after the Melo league loss to the Philly league, Knicks star Carmelo Anthony revealed that he had 2 offseason surgeries during the offseason. Melo had arthroscopic surgery on his knee as well as an elbow procedure done in May. He suffers from chronic bursitis in his elbow. During the season, his elbow injury was publicized by the media but nothing was ever said about any knee problem. The Melo vs Goodman league game was the first time that Melo had been on the court since the offseason as he was shut down for most of it during rehabilitation.

As well as revealing his surgical procedures, a noticeably thinner Melo also revealed he was at 230 pounds, 5 pounds less then his playing weight from last season. Anthony came under some scrutiny last season from Knick fans wanting to see a thinner, more toned Melo.

I would tend to agree that Melo should at least be a bit more toned. From a defensive standpoint, obviously the quicker the better. A higher level of defensive ability would allow Melo to be more versatile on a team that is not particularly deep. Melo right now is not quick enough to check shooting guards but his quickness on offense leads me to believe he at least has the potential. Realistically he will never guard twos but if he is serious about his defense and gets better he certainly has the potential to. LeBron guarded Derrick Rose in the playoffs. Now obviously defensively LeBron is on a whole other level compared to the Meloman but that doesn’t mean Melo won’t ever eventually become proficient on defense. If Melo and STAT want to take this championship run seriously, they have to improve on defense and this is a good start for Anthony.

Here are highlights from last nights 131-119 Philly league victory over the Melo league. Lebron had 43 points and 23 boards while Melo had 31 and 17. Chris Paul looked out of shape and did not play that well. For the Philly league, Tyreke Evans, Lou Williams and Kyle Lowry stole the show leading Philly to the 12 point win.

Racy Pictures of Lala Vazquez Surface

Last week at the Goodman vs. Melo league, Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony had 2 cell phones stolen. Now racy photos of his wife, entertainer Lala Vazquez, have surfaced on the internet. This really is not a big deal but what they do in their own time is their business only. It is a big deal that somebody who went to a show that Melo put on (the Melo-Goodman game) stole his phones and exposed his wife online. I think it is absolutely absurd and I hope they find the person or persons that did this. The pictures do not reveal her naked or anything and she has done some modeling in the past so these pictures are not the end of the world but they were meant for Melo only and it is sad that they have now hit the internet. Again, this is not the biggest deal in the world but it is disappointing that somebody would do this.

The pictures can be seenĀ here.
