Carmelo: “Trust In Phil”
The New York Knicks are in a bit of a funk to say the least. The team has now lost 10 of their last 11 games and the recent firing of former head coach Derek Fisher goes to show that the man at the helm of all the Knicks decisions is running out of options.
Head of basketball operations, Phil Jackson, tabbed former L.A. Laker Kurt Rambis to help turn this team around and revive them from this latest slump. In his first game, Rambis' Knicks lost 111-108 to the Washington Wizards; a game in which star Carmelo Anthony went for 38pts and 13rebs.
When asked about Phil Jackson after the game, Anthony backed the man that promised him he would bring the Knicks back to prominence.
"This is something I didn't see coming, [that] nobody saw coming," Anthony said. "So you have to continue to put your trust into Phil. At this point, what could you do? Can't shy away from that. Can't go against it. So for me, it's continue. I have to trust in it. I decided to stay here. I decided to make that decision to trust in the Knicks and trust in Phil. I have to continue doing that."
Do you have as much trust in what Jackson is doing with the Knicks?
