Phil Jackson’s firing is just another moment of false hope in the James Dolan Era

It really seems like Carmelo Anthony wants to remain a Knick

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — The president doesn’t want Melo on the team. That could very well prove irrelevant. In his recent opus , Phil Jackson mouthpiece Charley Rosen called trading Carmelo Anthony an “absolute necessity.” That jibes with everything we’ve heard from the Knicks president, who can’t string together more than five sentences without reminding the world that his star forward would be better off...

The Cavaliers are no longer interested in trading for Carmelo Anthony, are hoping for a buyout

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Phil Jackson might just give Melo away.
