LeBron James taunts New York Knicks, Phil Jackson on Instagram
New York Knicks President Phil Jackson has taken another dig at forward Carmelo Anthony. "#Legend." Knicks president Phil Jackson and James' friend Carmelo Anthony are now at odds.
In his tweet, Jackson said that he has learned not to change the spot on a leopard with Michael Graham, who was a college superstar from Georgetown and played with the Albany Patroons in the defunct Continental Basketball Association.
Jackson has conducted a thinly veiled effort to prod Anthony to waive his no-trade clause, an ugly but perhaps effective offensive.
To some extent, the New York Knicks' unique knack for creating controversies is the inevitable result of playing basketball at the center of the media universe.
Now fourth in line for an Eastern Conference playoff spot and not giving fans much to watch on the court, the New York Knicks have become the NBA's best soap opera to pay attention to off of it. Jackson, however, did not mention Anthony's name but mentioned another player, Michael Graham, whom he coached in 1986.
While Jackson's ultimate goal is to win a championship, he has ended up hurting the team, and his star player, more than he could have imagined.
Temporarily committing to defense in the third quarter - holding Los Angeles to 20 points on 39.1 percent shooting (9-for-23), including just 1-for-7 from 3-point range - NY built a game-high 10-point lead at the start of the final quarter on a Porzingis trey. With trade kickers, it can get complicated. Jackson might have meant to dispel that theory with his tweet Thursday, but he didn't provide any clarification about the meaning behind his decision to reference the column critical of Anthony. That's when team president Phil Jackson fired his first head coaching hire (and second choice, behind Golden State's Steve Kerr), Derek Fisher. Prior to the Knicks' game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night, Lee was asked if he would prefer Anthony or Jackson to stay with the Knicks.
Anthony and Knicks front office have not been on the best terms lately.
The tandem of Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire produced playoff appearances in 2012 and 2013, but the team had a 7-14 mark in the playoffs and got out of the first round just once.
Jackson, who was hired by the Knicks in March 2014, has two years and $24 million remaining on his contract.
But Anthony is who he is, addicted to his individual success no matter the experience or insight put around him to teach him something more.
The Knicks reportedly have spoken to the Cavaliers, Clippers and Celtics about Anthony.
Entering Wednesday evening, the Knicks have trudged to a 22-31 record, slotting them 12th in the Eastern Conference.
Adding Anthony and Bradley (despite moving on from Griffin) would balance the Clippers roster and change up the status quo in L.A. Carmelo Anthony led NY with 28 points, and Kristaps Porzingis contributed 27 to bust out of his recent slump.

But despite the history between the two players, LeBron said he'd have no problem with Stephenson joining the roster. Farmar played in two games for the Sacramento Kings this season before Darren Collison returned from his suspension.
