Carmelo Anthony doesn’t think Phil Jackson’s presence with the New York Knicks will have an impact on his impending free agency.

“I don’t think it’ll have any effect on me, just as far as what I’m thinking or my decision or anything like that,” Anthony told reporters after the team’s shootaround in Boston on Wednesday morning. “Like I said, I haven’t talked to Phil yet, just to get his insight on a lot of things — what’s his plan, what’s his future plan — because everything’s in his hands now.”

Anthony said the team told him earlier this week that Jackson would be joining its front office.

As far as I can tell, the only good thing DeShawn Stevenson has ever done on a basketball court was hacking Ricky Davis after his infamous wrong-way triple-double attempt. Even then, I kinda think that was more Jerry Sloan using telekinesis or some other sort of mind control because DeShawn Stevenson is the king of being wack.

I reported this past summer that Jay-Z serves as the executive producer of NBA 2K13. But it appears that his role in the game has gone beyond that role. Those of you who purchase the game and play against the Brooklyn Nets at home will see a familiar face in the crowd. That’s right, Hov himself can be seen sitting courtside in Nets games. Check out what it’ll look like.
