Union weighs in on Knicks' Melo-drama

Union weighs in on Knicks' Melo-drama

"We've not been able to win with [Anthony] on the court at this time", Jackson said. According to Bleacher Report, just minutes after Jackson's conference ended, Anthony posted a photo.

All of this dysfunction led Porzingis - the one promising thing the Knicks have going for them from Jackson's reign of error - to skip his exit meetings today, a development first reported by ESPN and confirmed by The Washington Post.

Porzingis isn't alone in not wanting to participate in the team's workouts this summer that will be heavily focused on implementing the triangle offense.

Jackson alluded to frayed relations between players and Hornacek and his staff in his media conference on Friday.

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

Although Anthony holds a no-trade clause and met with Jackson this week, the president revealed he told his player he should consider moving on. That was a loud and strong message sent by the young Latvian cornerstone player to the organization and the league, which always keeps a watchful eye on the Knicks' dealings with a box of popcorn handy.

Unless the Knicks can make Anthony available to a team like the Boston Celtics (who have more than enough draft picks from the Brooklyn Nets for sale) or the Los Angeles Clippers, they may be stuck with him come the start of the 2017-2018 season-and Phil Jackson has made it pretty clear he isn't letting that happen. "The door swings both ways when it comes to demonstrating loyalty and respect", said NBPA executive director Michelle Roberts. The ironic thing about all the bad press is that it's self-inflicted from the former NBA Coach of the Year providing too much information for the public's consumption.

It appears that Jackson meant good with his statement but Anthony might have understood it differently. But the worst-case scenario for the Knicks is that Jackson pushes Porzingis away and turns the Knicks into a franchise players don't want to join. Hopefully this year, NY gets the opportunity to land players who will help bring back the former glory of the organization.

"Players are privately fuming that they want no part of the organization's summer slate of triangle offense regimen at the team's suburban NY practice facility, league sources told The Vertical". The fallout with star player Carmelo Anthony has gone from an in-house issue to a complete mess with players around the league rallying in support of the embattled Knicks forward.
