Unless you’ve been under a rock with a pair of Beats head phones on with cotton in your ears for the past 48 hours you would know that Phil Jackson is still trippin’! For some reason he’s still goin’ at Melo like ole boy doesn’t have a no trade clause in his contract. On Friday the dun sat in front of real live human beings with cameras and microphones and said,
“We’ve not been able to win with [Anthony] on the court at this time. I think the direction with our team is that he’s a player that would be better off somewhere else and using his talent somewhere where he can win or chase that championship.”
Helloooooo! Is anybody at home? Melo’s not goin’ anywhere playboy!!! You can’t force the dun out because you’re tired of him. You owe him the final two years of his contract and he’d be a fool to dip.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Melo is about to start the fourth year of a 5 year $125 million deal. There aren’t too many teams that would want to absorb that dun’s contract and not a single title contender that would want or need a cat that plays no defense that they’ve gotta pay through the nose.
So guess what Phil? You’re stuck with him and if Melo is smart he would sit in the cut and make them pay him. Stop talkin’ about the dun wantin’ to go to a title contender. Melo wanted the bread more than the title because he signed with New York when he could have gone to other teams for less money. He wanted the bread and I’m not mad at him for takin’ it.
But Phil needs to chill out with the slander of ole boy. He offered the dun the deal and now he’s gotta live with it. The NBPA executive director Michele Roberts snapped back in a statement and hollered at Adam Silver about this foolishness too. “We voiced with the Commissioner today our view on the inappropriate comments by Knicks President Phil Jackson. If players under contract cannot, under threat of league discipline, speak openly about their desire to be employed elsewhere, we expect management to adhere to the same standards. The door swings both ways when it comes to demonstrating loyalty and respect.”
You can’t offer a player a no trade clause and then try to punk him out of it. It doesn’t work that way pimpin’. Melo’s got all of the power and he should use it. It is what it is. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
2) Dip: verb – to leave
3) Pimpin’: noun – the person that I’m passionately tryin’ to get my point across to.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
