New York Knicks Rumors: Carmelo and Tyson Chandler Feuding?

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 05/13/13 02:41PM EDT

Rumor-seeking New York Knicks fans will not be delighted with this one. Over the weekend Tyson Chandler called out his teammates for being selfish, which sent a whole bunch of fireworks through the locker room. On Monday, Carmelo Anthony answered back. He didn't say too much, but it was clear that he was not very happy with Chandler.

"I really don't want to go back and forth about that because I really don't know exactly what he was talking about. But if he feels that way, we're about to get together right now. We'll discuss that amongst ourselves and figure that out," Anthony said after practice.

Carmelo was, of course, responding to the following comments from his teammate.

"I watched the tape myself and there's open looks," Chandler said Sunday. "We have to be willing passers. You have to sacrifice yourself sometimes for the betterment of the team, for the betterment of your teammates. So when you drive in the paint, you draw, you kick it. We need to do a better job of allowing the game to dictate who takes the shots and not the individuals.

"I'm not saying that anybody is doing it maliciously. I think it's more so a situation, you want to take over the game or you want to make a big shot, where you have to just stick to the game plan. Good teams win basketball games. Unless you're a great, great, great individual, and we've only had a few of those come through."

Bottom line: Chandler was an idiot for speaking out against his New York teammates. There is only one Knicks' player that can get away with calling his teammates out and that's Carmelo Anthony.

Chandler needs to look in the mirror and critique his own performance before calling out his teammates. He has played horribly throughout the Knicks' playoff series against the Pacers. If he stepped up his game just a little bit, the Knicks would not be down 1-2 in the series. He needs to do a lot less talking and a lot more practicing.
