Phil Jackson's tweet appears to be critical of Carmelo Anthony

On Monday night, the team was blown out by the lowly Los Angeles Lakers to fall to a stunningly bad 22-31 on the season.
Knicks president Phil Jackson's campaign to pressure Carmelo Anthony into waiving his no-trade clause is "working to harden Anthony's resolve to remain with the franchise", according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.
A T.S. Eliot poem this is not.
Jackson referenced a column by Kevin Ding that was critical of Anthony. Had Jackson simply told Anthony face-to-face that the organization wanted to move in a different direction, he may have been open to a move, but the public criticisms have ruined the relationship and eliminated that option.
"The only sure thing is that Carmelo Anthony has outlived his usefulness in New York", Rosen wrote.
"Anthony is a likable person who just happens to be nothing near Jordan or Bryant in will to win", Ding continued. "No, Jackson never thought Anthony had that fire, but he thought he could balance Anthony's ball dominance by teaching teamwork and converting talent into a clear net positive". The Knicks' higher-up tweeted, "Bleacher's Ding nearly rings the bell, but I learned you don't change the spot on a leopard with Michael Graham in my CBA daze".
Begley noted when Jackson and Anthony met face-to-face in January that Anthony "wondered why Jackson always brought up his name in interviews".
Jackson was referring to a journeyman player, Michael Graham, whom he coached in the Continental Basketball Association. He was also kicked off the Albany team for fighting with Jackson.
"You don't change the spot on a leopard".
Anthony has repeatedly said that he hasn't considered waiving his no-trade clause before the NBA's trade deadline on February 23. Not to mention the fact that this is a ridiculous and petty way to bash your highest-paid player.
This was Jackson's first tweet since December 27 when Jackson announced he and his former fiancé Jeannie Buss had split up.
The column put Anthony and Jackson under a microscope and questioned Anthony's desire to win. One team is rumored to be the Cleveland Cavaliers, who shut down a trade for Kevin Love. That approach might have convinced Anthony to be more open to accepting a trade, league sources said, but Jackson's insistence on public over private communication has severely damaged the relationship - likely beyond fix.
As the ancient Zen koan goes, the Knicks are an absolute mess.
