well yeah but will Melo really change his game? I'm not sold on Melo adjusting. He still hasn't figure it out yet that its a team game and its on him, and he's really the problem, He has to look at himself. The only way I see it working if we first get a coach who knows how to handle big egos, and then run the triangle offense (I think I know who is the perfect fit for this job xD). I mean he was great in the Olympics yes, but that is a small sample size and Team USA's talent surpassed any other team so u can play great next to anyone on Team USA. Phil said it best
Perhaps with his 29th birthday celebration this week, Carmelo Anthony should treat himself to Phil Jackson's book, "Sacred Hoops."
That's what Jackson hopes Melo, whom he called a "terrific player," purchases to learn what it takes to become an NBA champion.
"He's one step away from getting there and having that opportunity," Jackson said on Thursday during an interview on Bloomberg Radio's "Taking Stock" with Pimm Fox and Carol Massar. "Having had [a championship] as an NCAA player, it's something he must crave."
In "Sacred Hoops," Jackson describes coaching the greatest player ever, who also needed some motivation from the "Zen Master" himself.
"It's a book in which I address the fact that Michael Jordan's a leading scorer, he's got the capability of being a terrific scorer," Jackson said, "but that he's got to get his other teammates involved and he's got to make it a team game."
