Melo: We Have to Make the Triangle Work

Carmelo Anthony is taking a triangle-or-bust attitude toward the team’s new triple-post offense under Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher. At least that was his message following the Knicks’ 81-76 loss to the Toronto Raptors in the team’s preseason opener at Madison Square Garden on Monday.

“I can’t really worry about what other people are worrying about, whether it works for me or not,” said Anthony, who finished with nine points on 4-of-6 shooting in 15 minutes against Toronto as the Knicks dropped to 1-2 this preseason. “I go out there and I don’t have a choice but to make it work. Whether it takes now or it takes later, we don’t have a choice but to make this work. I told you all early on, media day, I’m willing to take that chance to try to make it work and be patient with it.”

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
