The Knicks haven't made the playoffs since the 2012-13 season, though, which is especially troubling given that NY expected to return to the postseason this year after adding Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah last summer.

It didn't take long for Carmelo Anthony to respond to Phil Jackson's comments.

"We've not been able to win with [Anthony] on the court at this time", Jackson said following exit interviews with players.

Anthony told Jackson past year that he wanted to stay with the Knicks.

'Political Bull': Justice vetoes $4.1 billion state budget
West Virginia Republicans fired back on Twitter that "the real bullshit of the day" is Justice's unpaid taxes. We remain committed to working with both the House of Delegates and the governor to control spending.

Jackson, meeting with the media two days after the Knicks completed their fourth consecutive losing season, said the team will continue to explore trade options for the 10-time All-Star. He also granted Anthony a no-trade clause in that contract, but said he doesn't regret it. It sure seems Melo and the Knicks are heading towards a divorce, but Anthony has to approve the trade, which complicates everything. "That's very important for us and that's the direction we have to go".

The 32-year-old superstar said earlier this week that while he'd "love" to remain on the Knicks roster, he wants a commitment to winning immediately. The Knicks finished with a 31-51 record.

"I have a lot of thinking and reflecting to do", Anthony told ESPN. "I never made a substitution, but the buck stops here", Jackson said. "Obviously it hasn't worked out, this partnership together". Of course, Anthony would need to waive the no-trade clause that Jackson awarded him to make any move possible this offseason, but that decision is reportedly one Anthony is "leaning strongly" toward if the Knicks find a desirable destination for him.

"We'll take into account (Anthony's) consideration".
