On Tuesday after Team USA practice, Anthony tried to clear the air. He was all smiles. He never told anyone he was unhappy with Jackson’s offseason moves, he said. Smith and Shumpert were his friends, and he was sad to see them go — but understood why.

“Nobody talked to me,” Anthony said. “Nobody heard me say anything, so as far as being unhappy, life is too good to be unhappy.”As for Jackson’s decision to trade Smith and Shumpert — sound basketball moves for the building phase the Knicks are in — “I see both sides,” added Anthony.

“On one side,” he said, “guys that we got rid of were close to me and my friends, and on the flip side of that, it’s a business at the end of the day. So I think he had to do that in order to put us in the position we’re in right now from a business standpoint. From a friendship standpoint, if those are my guys, if those are my friends, I’m going to always feel some type of way about losing guys that I played with that I formed a bond with. But I know this is a business and I know he had to do what he had to do to put us in this position.”
