Carmelo Anthony Looking Forward To Exit Meeting With Phil Jackson


Now it's about making sure that doesn't happen again. Ndour, who has a team option for next season, may start again as Porzingis "rests" a sore back.

"He's made a step up", Hornacek said.

Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks are likely headed for a breakup, and the All-Star forward appears resigned to packing his bags.

Anthony was asked recently about his future, which he continues to be vague in describing, but hinting that he knows what's coming. "It's the game I've always had fun and enjoyed", Anthony said. Either Anthony has to waive his no-trade clause for a team that can actually give the Knicks some level of return, or Jackson needs to take up the opt-out he has this summer and return to whatever it is he does in Montana when he's not with the Knicks. "The way he can break down the defense and as the season went on I thought he got a little bit more comfortable with the offense", Hornacek said. "The chips will be on the table in that meeting. You don't know what writing is on the wall, though, but I see what writing is on the wall".

Yeah. The chips will be on the table.

The trade deadline obviously has passed, but now the Knicks have the upcoming offseason to decide what do with the 32-year-old. However, no deal was finalized and Anthony remained with the Knicks.

In the fourth quarter, the Knicks were not thinking about losing for draft purposes.

State senators crafted the proposal together amid arguments over how much testing should be allowed in the state's public schools. Supporters say this is a crucial change that will eliminate inconsistent regulations across county lines.

We can't expect to have more possession than them even if we would love it, but we need to be good in defence as a team. The boss has been cautious with Danny Welbeck given his recent injury problems so I think he'll make way for Giroud.

It's absurd to think United can sign Neymar - Mourinho
Obviously it would be great, any coach would want to work in the best teams and national teams. I think it [signing Neymar] is like trying to break into a safe.

The challenge for the Knicks is Anthony was not happy with how the Knicks went about finding a trade. While there have been some highs during Melo's tenure in the Big Apple, there were even more lows and I think it's time for him to move on. However, that's not how it played out.

The veterans, on the other hand, seemed to be focused more on themselves. Meanwhile, Anthony is rumored to be traded to the LA Clippers.

The Knicks opened the second quarter on a 9-0 run to move ahead 38-24. Defensively, the Knicks are yielding 108.3 points per game against the opposing teams.

Anthony also added that he is still trying to go through the motions of finishing the season strong. Approaching Anthony in such a way and allowing him to be involved in finding his next home, may make getting his consent a lot easier. "Coaches believe in me and giving me the opportunity, I can't let him down, I can't let my teammates down".

Hornacek can only be blamed for so much of the Knicks' woes as he is not out there playing.

A visible lack of fluidity began to show among them on the floor, especially when guys came in off the bench.
