Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reports:

On Monday, Carmelo Anthony was asked every which way to endorse D’Antoni and he answered the questions like a senator caught in a love triangle.

Melo was evasive and non-committal, which was apparently enough to fool some in the media that Dolan’s new favorite player believes the Knicks have the right head coach. In fact, the exact opposite is true. According to a person close to Anthony, the player D’Antoni wasn’t thrilled about acquiring, is far from convinced that D’Antoni’s system is the right fit for his game.

And when Chauncey Billups comes out and says there is no perfect coach and happens to mention that Larry Brown - D’Antoni’s polar opposite and Dolan’s sworn enemy - is his all-time favorite, I think it’s safe to assume that the veteran point guard isn’t reading “Seven Seconds or Less” in his spare time.
