Source: Knicks Record Carmelo Anthony
In the wake of an incident between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett that resulted in Anthony’s suspension, the Knicks recorded all in-game conversations between the forward and players around him Friday against the Bulls, a league source has confirmed.
Owner James Dolan ordered Madison Square Garden technicians to place two microphones on opposite ends of the court, a move league sources told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard was put in place in order to protect Anthony.
Tim Frank, the NBA’s senior vice president of basketball communications, said the league has no issue with the recordings.
“There are no prohibitions against having audio equipment in the arena,” Frank said.
