Phil fires an­other Twit­ter vol­ley at Carmelo

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

New York Knicks pres­i­dent Phil Jack­son has taken an­other dig at for­ward Carmelo An­thony.

In a tweet, Jack­son re­ferred to a col­umn by Bleacher Re­port writer Kevin Ding that sug­gested Jack­son is frus­trated be­cause An­thony doesn’t have the same will to win as other stars.

Jack­son tweeted on Tues­day: “Bleacher’s Ding al­most rings the bell, but I learned you don’t change the spot on a leop­ard with Michael Gra­ham in my CBA daze.”

Jack­son was re­fer­ring to Michael Gra­ham, a col­lege star from Ge­orge­town who never en­joyed much suc­cess in the pros. Jack­son coached Gra­ham on the Al­bany Pa­troons of the now-de­funct Con­ti­nen­tal Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion.

Ear­lier this sea­son, Jack­son said An­thony tends to hold on to the ball too long to be suc­cess­ful in the tri­an­gle of­fence.
