Melo, Chandler Fail to Work on Chemistry
Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski fashioned a gold-medal-winning rotation during the Olympics, with Tyson Chandler starting at center and Carmelo Anthony replacing him at the five-minute mark of the first and third quarters.
Having Anthony in an odd role, often at the 5, was good for the gold in London but it did the Knicks no favors. Anthony and Chandler were almost never on the court together. Ironically, the two Knicks talked during July’s Las Vegas training camp that being on the Olympic team will further develop their oncourt chemistry. So much for that.
