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.




In West Virginia Tuesday night, 41 percent of Democratic primary voters chose a rather nondescript Texas prison inmate over President Obama. Never mind that these people had just voted for a man who himself cannot vote. Never mind that voters like these have fueled felon disenfranchisement initiatives all across the country. Out-of-state prison inmates, evidently, make for great symbols of political protest. And West Virginia clearly doesn’t like the president. Anger and contradiction.
