Carmelo Speaks With Kobe on Jackson Dynamic

"That's something I've learned over the years, especially with Phil", said Anthony.

Phil Jackson essentially calling Carmelo Anthony a ball hog on CBS Sports Network's We Need to Talk on Tuesday rightfully irked the Knicks All-Star. LeBron James? He is probably still chuckling about his dominant display over the Knicks last week after Jackson delivered comments about his "posse", which James interpreted as racial.

Meanwhile, Lakers coach Luke Walton has heard it all before. It was just something that if I got an opportunity to speak to him I was going to tell him how I felt about what happened and what was said, if anything was misinterpreted. "So, no, it doesn't surprise me". So who better to turn to than Kobe Bryant, who played for, went to verbal war with and was a prime subject in one of Jackson's books.

"Phil's a unique individual that does a lot of things that people don't understand", Walton said. "But he normally has a good reason or objective behind stuff", Walton said, following the Lakers morning shoot around Sunday at Staples Center.

Carmelo Anthony said that he's had "countless conversations" with Kobe Bryant regarding how to deal with Phil Jackson criticizing him in interviews.

He said the retired Lakers superstar told him to, "Keep on going". Keep your head up and move. "Don't read into it too much". "I'll be in a couple books".

According to Newsday's Laura Albanese, Anthony and Jackson convened before the Knicks' practice in Los Angeles to quell some of the tension that has cropped up over the past five days. Regardless of what was the context of the interview or conversation, just why? Regardless of what you said, why every time my name comes up? "Phil's a unique individual that does a lot of things people don't understand, but he normally has a pretty good reason and objective behind stuff". But most of the controversy, we normally came out, played better, harder and won games.

"Phil's going to push you", World Peace said before the Knicks played the Lakers on Sunday night. He also said Jackson thrives on it and likes it when players are angered by his comments.

There's still a considerable amount of room for improvement, but NY has won five of its past six games.
