Knicks boss maintains stand on Anthony, wishes 'success somewhere'

Knicks boss maintains stand on Anthony, wishes 'success somewhere'

The NBA Draft Combine is wrapping up, and the biggest story in the NY media at the moment is Phil Jackson saying the exact same stuff about Carmelo Anthony that he said last month. "Some personal things came out in the paper that was hard". The Zen Master is going to have to find a destination that pleases his player if he truly wants him to pull up stakes in NYC.

Jackson said last month that he believed Anthony, 32, would be "better off somewhere else" to pursue a championship, noting that the Knicks haven't been winning with Anthony for the past three years.

If Anthony doesn't waive his no-trade clause, the drama in NY will continue to stew.

Honestly, I don't think Gaines asked the death question. He has reiterated his stance (courtesy of ESPN) once again during the annual National Basketball Association draft combine.

"We'd like him to have success,"Jackson said of Carmelo Anthony, per ESPN". We're not going to be there.

"We got a lot of bigs", Jackson said. "It would tough to consider us possible champions".

Miocic 2nd UFC heavyweight defense is rematch vs. Dos Santos
Randy Couture , Andrei Arlovski , Tim Sylvia , Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez are the other UFC heavyweights who pulled the feat. But even then, it's going to be hard for Miocic to have success wrestling Junior because of how versed he is in defense.

He broke down with reporters the importance of giving Knicks fans hope and honesty heading into next season.

Jackson said he called Silver to explain and claimed the two of them were on the "same path" and the league was "comfortable". But these comments were made in public, and it's very disturbing because Phil gave him the no-trade clause and he has to respect it.

"Rather than to bat this thing over the net back and forth between parties, we'll just leave it alone", Jackson said. "I think Jeff [Hornacek] said something yesterday, and he kind of expressed our feelings about it". However, they failed to advance to the postseason after the Indiana Pacers and the Chicago Bulls won their respective final regular season assignments. So it's been a long time for hope for our fans. They've been bridesmaids but never a bride.

"I'd just as soon not talk about it", Jackson said. "We have a number of issues that I think are important".

"I've known Adam for some time, so we talk about business, about various things, about what's important for our franchise", Jackson said. The press is one of them. But at least he's being honest about the Knicks' chances of doing that next year.

"We want to get the first pick", Jackson said. "So we're rooting for those little balls".
