Carmelo Anthony’s future in New York appears to be bleak as the team made attempts this season to move on from the star player.
The trade deadline obviously has passed, but now the Knicks have the upcoming offseason to decide what do with him. Team president Phil Jackson didn’t exactly hide his feelings about wanting to trade Anthony, but the forward still holds power with his no-trade clause.
Anthony and Jackson will have an exit interview of sorts once the season is over, and the 10-time All-Star knows how important it is.
“Pretty sure the chips will be on the table,” he said Monday. “The chips will be on the table in that meeting.”
Anthony also responded to comments made over the weekend by Scottie Pippen, who used to play for Jackson. Pippen said the team president needs to be fired and credited Anthony for how he’s handled the situation.
Here’s how Anthony responded: “I think in this situation everybody has an Cheap Michael Jordan Jerseys opinion. I think the fact that, for one, we’re here in New York one of the biggest markets in the world and we are the talk of that market. Everybody has their opinion. I’m just glad people speaking up, whether it’s good or bad, people are speaking up, having their own opinion, rather than me trying to convince or not convince people of the situation or what’s going on and I could just play basketball. Everybody else sees what’s going on, so they’re going to have an opinion.”
The Jackson and Anthony exit interview surely will be full Cheap Lions Jerseys of drama, and we’ll probably find out which of the two will actually be exiting before next season.
