Carmelo Anthony scored 23 points in three quarters.
New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) -
Phil Jackson has to like what he's seeing from the New York Knicks recently.
Three days before Jackson is expected to be named the franchise's new president, Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks took care of the lowly Milwaukee Bucks, 115-94, in a Saturday matinee at Madison Square Garden.
Anthony scored 23 points in three quarters for the Knicks, who announced they will hold a press conference on Tuesday regarding a "major announcement."
Jackson will be tasked with turning around a New York team that has rattled off a season-high six straight wins but is still on the outside looking in at the postseason.
Age limit is wrong

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The NBA's age limit requirement states a player must be "at least 19 years of age during the calendar year in which the Draft is held," and "at least one NBA Season has elapsed since the player's graduation from high school."
If new Commissioner Adam Silver has his way, that age will be raised to 20.
The idea stinks, but then so does the current rule.
First, as background, the notion of age-related restriction has never sat well in this man's soul.
A person has to be 16 to get a driver's license in the United States, although that varies state to state.
