Phil Jackson, despite repeated warnings, still wants to talk about moving Carmelo Anthony

Yahoo.com: Ball Don't Lie (Kelly Dwyer) — Phil Jackson, this spring. (Getty Images) Phil Jackson hasn’t modified his approach, much. Most men in his position tend not to. Even after National Basketball Players Association executive director Michele Roberts chided Jackson earlier in the month for, as she and others put it, his attempt to “shame” Carmelo Anthony into accepting a trade away from the New York Knicks, Jackson...

Mike D'Antoni, after Carmelo Anthony muddied his Knicks gig: 'I just went in and quit'

Yahoo.com: Ball Don't Lie (Kelly Dwyer) — Mike D’Antoni and Carmelo Anthony in 2011. (Getty Images) Mike D’Antoni didn’t really have to confirm that he quit the New York Knicks in 2012. We anticipated as much back then, when D’Antoni and New York announced a mutual parting of the ways partway through a tumultuous and thrilling 2011-12 run.

Kristaps Porzingis learned a valuable lesson on Twitter over the weekend

Yahoo.com: Ball Don't Lie (Henry Bushnell) — Kristaps Porzingis got everyone thinking. (AP) From the owner to the president of basketball operations  to the coach to the star  to the franchise player in waiting  to everyone else on the team,  the 2016-17 New York Knicks have been a mess of an organization from start to finish.

Dwyane Wade now has time to consider his 'great luxury' of a free agent decision

Yahoo.com: Ball Don't Lie (Kelly Dwyer) — Dwyane Wade looks on. (Getty Images) No part of the Chicago Bulls’ 2016-17 season looked good. The team’s hot start was met with derision, its midseason swoon barely raised a hackle, its transactions were laughed at almost immediately after they hit the wire. Stars fought, the ownership group and front office mostly hid. The franchise trotted out a clearly-miserable coach in Fred Hoiberg...

Dion Waiters' retelling of the moment he became a meme is as great as the moment itself

Yahoo.com: Ball Don't Lie (Dan Devine) — Dion Waiters owns the moment. (Charles Trainor Jr./Miami Herald/TNS/Getty Images) Despite a remarkable run to finish the 2016-17 NBA season, the Miami Heat fell one win shy of the playoffs .

Kristaps Porzingis still loves New York, isn't ready to commit to Phil Jackson

Yahoo.com: Ball Don't Lie (Ben Rohrbach) — The city of New York is so nice, Kristaps Porzingis said he loves it twice.

Yahoo.com: Ball Don't Lie (Kelly Dwyer) — Greg Monroe goes left. (Getty Images) If he wanted to stick with a growing club with playoff potential, Greg Monroe could have re-signed with the Detroit Pistons in 2015. If he wanted to work out of a big city, New York’s Knicks were always an option – Phil Jackson reportedly had Monroe near the top of his free agent list that summer. And if the guy needed a quick playoff fix, we’re sure...
