Carmelo Anthony responds to Knicks recording his conversations

It was until the flight to London that Carmelo Anthony found out about New York Knicks owner James Dolan ordering his staff to secretly tape his on-court conversations with opponents.

But once he found out, the All-Star forward wasn't mad. In fact, he found it rather amusing and maintained that he has a good relationship with Dolan.

According to a report Wednesday from Marc Berman of The New York Post, Anthony doesn't care about microphones on him, regardless of whether they're obvious or hidden:

"I don’t care about the microphones. I wasn’t aware of it. I found out on the plane [ride]. I don’t think the mikes are going to stop what goes out on the court. But it was funny when I heard it. No, I wasn’t upset. Not at all. I got an owner who looks out for me. You can’t beat that, an owner that protects his players."

As our own Rob Mahoney recapped, Dolan had asked a few of his employees to record on-court conversations between Anthony and opponents in the wake of Anthony's one game suspension that followed the in-game chatter going on between him and Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett earlier in January.

The Knicks are currently in London for an overseas showcase against the Detroit Pistons scheduled for Thursday.
