NBA trade rumors: Carmelo Anthony for Kyrie Irving trade is a no-go

The one way the Knicks can get Kyrie Irving is by trading Carmelo Anthony. The problem is Anthony doesn’t want to go to Cleveland if Kyrie Irving isn’t there as well.

It has been reported mutliple times that the Knicks have reached out to the Cavaliers in hopes of trading Anthony to them for Irving. The issue, though, is that Anthony still wants to play for Houston according to ESPN’s Ian Begley.

Gilbert didn’t learn enough from three straight NBA Finals trips and a championship that bathed him, the city and the organization in glory. He was just another rich guy who was lucky to have a local hero fall into his lap — twice. He didn’t figure out that all he had to do to bask forever in this glow was to leave well enough alone, with the smart executive and the transformational player.

Now they all run the risk of capsizing. Griffin has gone overboard, days before the draft and weeks before free agency, heading into a pivotal offseason for a team fighting to keep pace with the Warriors team that just took their crown.

There’s a big problem with Barkley’s argument, though. He’s contradicting himself. Remember what Barkley had to say about Kevin Durant when he decided to sign with the Warriors?

Kevin is a terrific player, he’s a good kid. But just disappointed with the fact that he weakened another team and he’s gonna kind of gravy train on a terrific Warriors team, Barkley said last summer on ESPN’s Mike and Mike. Just disappointed from a competitive standpoint. Because just like it meant more to LeBron to win one in Cleveland, it would mean more to Kevin to win one in Oklahoma than it would be in Golden State.

Kevin Durant is trying to cheat his way into a championship.

Stanley Cup playoffs three stars: Predators reach first West finals; Oilers force Game 7

Pekka Rinne wore a permanent ear-to-ear grin when asked to contextualize the Predators’ unlikely playoff run 18 years in the making.

Rinne’s Nashville roots run deep. He was drafted in 2004, a gem unearthed in the eighth round when such a thing was still in practice. In that sense, the hulking goaltender is Predators personified and was understandably beaming when, in his 566th NHL game, he finally led the franchise to its first berth in the Western Conference finals.

It means everything right now, Rinne told reporters following a 3-1 victory to oust the Blues in six games. Obviously, we haven’t gone further than this before. It’s a great feeling, but there’s also a lot of work left. After this round, there’s only four teams, and we all know that we have what it takes and everything is in our hands. … This is why you play this game. I’m happy.

It’s safe to assume Crosby and Subban didn’t get together for a pregame Primanti Brothers sandwich to celebrate National Best Friend Day.

The two got into a wrestling match toward the end of the first period. It all started when Crosby gave Subban a whack in the back with his stick while Subban navigated toward the Pittsburgh net. The two fell and Crosby pinned Subban down, repeatedly bashing his head into the ice. Subban wasn’t a saint either, though, as he placed Crosby into a headlock as the two rose to their feet. The ordeal resulted in two-minute holding minors for both men, who headed for the locker room with 1:32 remaining in the period.
