Carmelo Anthony and Phil Jackson are officially beefing after what Jackson had to say regarding Melo’s future in New York. The superstar forward and the team’s president of basketball operations just don’t like each other. It has been speculated for months that their relationship was toxic but now it has reached the point of no return. Phil Jackson held no punches when speaking about Melo and this has not been his first time he publicly criticized Anthony.
Jackson had this to say about Melo
“We have not been able to win with him on the court at this time and I think the direction with our team is that he is a player that would be better off somewhere else and using his talent somewhere he can win or chase that championship,” Jackson said Friday.”
Many believe that it is Phil Jackson’s fault for the lack of success the New York Knicks have had.
It's a shame out of all the NBA franchises you can ruin Phil Jackson had to choose the team I love 🙄
