Knicks president Phil Jackson has a reputation for being blunt and, at times, offensive, and his personality has once again generated headlines lately. Jackson held a one-on-one meeting with Carmelo Anthony Saturday regarding comments that Jackson made last week. Anthony called the meeting productive, but did add Jackson needs “to be careful the choice of words he uses.”
Metta World Peace, a former Knicks forward who also played under Jackson while with the Lakers, said the situation between Anthony and Jackson is productive, in an interview with Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News. Still, with the Knicks playing better as of late, Jackson’s comments are an unwanted distraction at this point, Frank Isola of The New York Daily News argues. The Knicks are 13-10 after undergoing a makeover this summer that was led by Jackson.
