They meant Dolan, Walsh and D'Antoni, not Thomas.
Insiders are skeptical, knowing Anthony is used to dominating the ball and could clash with Stoudemire, who was so happy being the star, he said he didn't think the Knicks needed much.
The New York Daily News' Frank Isola wrote that suggestions that Anthony is "Stephon Marbury with a headband" were unfair ... to Marbury, who didn't force Phoenix to trade him to the Knicks.
Meanwhile, New Jersey owner Mikhail Prokhorov took credit for running the price up for the Knicks.
"I think we made a very good tactical decision to force [the] Knicks to pay as much as they can," Prokhorov told CNBC.
"So it's very good, it's very interesting, it's very competitive."
It's very bold and/or dumb, putting Dolan's stamp on this team, shaking up his organization with Walsh's option to return next season yet to be picked up.
In the good news, assuming the reports are finally true, at least Anthony has gone somewhere.
