Phil fires another Twitter volley at Carmelo
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.
