Carmelo Anthony Backs Owner Recording His In-Game Conversations

Jan. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Carmelo Anthony said he has no problem with New York Knicks owner James Dolan recording his on-court conversations during a game.

Microphones were placed on the Madison Square Garden floor for a Jan. 11 matchup against the Chicago Bulls, one day after Knicks leading scorer Anthony served a one-game suspension for confronting Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics after a game. The confrontation came after Anthony and Garnett exchanged elbows and words during the contest.

Anthony, whose average of 29.3 points per game ranks second in the National Basketball Association to Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers, told reporters in London that he appreciates Dolan’s support.

“I got an owner that looks out for me,” Anthony said at a practice yesterday, a day before the Knicks play the Detroit Pistons at the O2 Arena. “You can’t beat that for an owner to try to protect his players. It just shows how much loyalty Mr. Dolan has.”
