Michele Roberts Calls Phil Jackson's Carmelo Anthony Comments Inappropriate

It would take a miracle and a handful of apologies for Carmelo Anthony to suit up for the New York Knicks ever again after team president Phil Jackson confirmed Friday that the All-Star forward would be "better off somewhere else".

Knicks boss Jackson said the Knicks "have not been able to win with him on the court".

"If somebody was talking bad about you indirectly at your job, what would you do", Anthony said last week - before Jackson's comments on Friday.

In her statement she added that the "door swings both ways when it comes to demonstrating loyalty and respect".

That seems like a very valid point.

During the speech, Jackson said Carmelo Anthony would be "better off somewhere else" when asked about trade talks involving Anthony.

Anthony, who said he didn't want to be traded and had no plans to waive the no-trade clause in his contract, was nevertheless irked by what he said was a lack of direct communication from team brass about his role.

"We had the opportunity to play with Derrick and see if he does have enough left in the tank. before we have to get into that [free] agent market again", Jackson shared with ESPN's Jackie MacMullan. Great interest should be present when he is officially placed on the trade block since he remains a great scorer and is still one of the best forwards in the National Basketball Association today.

Many Knicks fans have been calling for their team to trade Anthony but their requests fell on deaf ears.

The Knicks are 80-166 in three full years that Jackson has been in charge, and have lost at least 50 games each season. He's 21 years old.

Jackson said Rose, who will be a free agent, expressed a desire to return to NY and intimated that the Knicks would consider re-signing him.

According to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski, Porzingis, who skipped exit interviews, wants nothing to do with the organization this summer and is planning an extended trip back to Latvia and might not be back in NY until right before training camp.

- Jackson expects the triangle to be fully implemented next season.whatever the hell that means.

Anthony took to Instagram to respond to Jackson's harsh comments, sharing a picture of a calm Leonardo DiCaprio from "The Great Gatsby" with a caption of "REALLY" and emojis suggesting Anthony was laughing out loud.

So Jackson will continue on for the next 24 months, trying to apply his antiquated philosophies while openly alienating his current players and coaches and then blaming them for not agreeing with his way of doing things.
