Will Carmelo Anthony leave the New York Knicks?

The New York Knicks have fired Phil Jackson, ending a relationship that began with great hope for a downtrodden franchise a little more than three years ago. His legacy in the game of basketball is unmatched. But in the end, and this is the merciful end for the Jackson era at the Garden, whatever "era" means in this case, he simply forgot about how good teams are assembled. "As someone who treasures winning, I am deeply disappointed that we weren't able to do that", Jackson said. "But like I said, if that subject is ever broached by them, then it would have to be advantageous for us".

Ever since Jackson was hired, the Knicks were a tragic 80-166 in three full seasons. He skipped exit meetings with Jackson and the team due to his frustration with the Knicks' dysfunction.

According to our friends at CBS New York and WFAN, Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks may finally go their separate ways.

Here's more from CBS New York... However, Anthony's mindset now is to stay in NY and play for the Knicks. even though Jackson doesn't want him.

National Basketball Association free agency begins in three days.

Most recently media ridiculed Jackson for fielding trade offers for former fourth overall pick Kristaps Porzingis.

Authorities say the fire was started on June 17 by someone using a torch tool to burn weeds on private land. Emergency crews have managed to contain only 9 percent of the Brian Head fire since it started.

Jackson, 71, had two years remaining on a five-year contract he signed in 2014 and had made it clear that he had no intention of staying with the team beyond that, but his handling of Anthony accelerated his departure.

The end of Jackson's tenure in NY came just months after Dolan affirmed his commitment to "the Zen Master" by picking up the final two years of his contract.

Jackson criticized Anthony in the press on a periodic basis and all but showed him the door after last season. The Knicks are expected to make the formal announcement Wednesday where they will also reveal possible replacements for Jackson.

"I think I can definitely fit with this system", Ntilikina said on draft night.

When he would start talking about the triangle as if somehow an offense from the past was essential to the Knicks future, he sounded like a pro football coach thinking he could still win in the NFL with the I-Formation.

Rose's injuries in the past could be reasons why he has a lower value than other free agent playmakers this 2017. LeBron & Friends playing the twilight of their careers in NY likely likely wouldn't bring a title, but it'd be incredibly interesting to watch.
