Phil Jackson Takes Public Shot at Carmelo Anthony

New York Knicks president Phil Jackson took another public shot at star forward Carmelo Anthony in a tweet on Tuesday, when Jackson referenced a column published on Bleacher Report that was critical of Anthony. The column details the Anthony-Jackson dynamic and questions Anthony’s desire to win by concluding that Jackson and the Knicks, in part, “can’t want for Anthony what he doesn’t want deeply enough for himself.”

Jackson references Michael Graham in his tweet, a talented player from Georgetown whom Jackson coached in the Continental Basketball Association. Graham and Jackson got into an argument in the middle of a game on New Year’s Eve in 1986, according to a profile of Graham in The Washingtonian. Days after the incident, Jackson’s team, the Albany Patroons, released Graham.
