Phil Jackson has broken his silence via Twitter with a cryptic message about Carmelo Anthony. We anxiously await Melo’s response.
After witnessing the New York Knicks embarrassing loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday night, Phil Jackson chose to attend Tuesday’s practice. He didn’t speak with the media (of course), but he attempted to make up for it with the tweet he dropped this afternoon.
Jackson resumed his feud with Carmelo Anthony and negated any chance the two had at a possible reconciliation.
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.

The Zen Master is referring to an article published Tuesday by Bleacher Report’s Kevin Ding that heavily criticizes Anthony. Ding gets pretty brutal. Among other things, he says that Melo cares more about money and his brand than winning.
Phil Jackson is doing everything he can to force Anthony to waive his no-trade clause. Right now it’s a battle of wills between the two enemies.
