Owner Spied On Carmelo During Knicks Game

New York Knicks owner Jim Dolan reportedly spied on Carmelo Anthony during Friday’s game.

Dave D’Alessandro of NJ.com reports that Dolan had two audio technicians stationed at the side of the court to record everything that Carmelo said during the game.

It’s unclear why Dolan decided to spy on his star player but it probably has something to do with Anthony’s one-game suspension following his confrontation with Kevin Garnett last week.

D’Alessandro writes:

“Two [MSG Network] audio technicians were stationed at two corners of the court — one a few feet just behind the Knicks bench, the other diagonally opposite — and they were holding those umbrella-shaped contraptions known as parabola microphones, which fed the audio into a DAT recorder on the truck on the loading dock. These guys had one directive from Dolan: Record every syllable Carmelo Anthony utters and absorbs while he’s on the court and on the bench, the Madison Square Garden CEO ordered them, and send the tape directly to me.”

With Anthony’s recent outburst, Dolan may have been trying to see what insults set his star off. The Knicks were playing the Chicago Bulls on Friday night and Anthony undoubtedly heard a little trash talk from Joakim Noah and Nate Robinson.

Dolan may have also been trying to get some insight into Anthony’s mysterious fast.
