Melo And A Knick Fan Exchange Insults Via Twitter

Melo And A Knick Fan Exchange Insults Via Twitter
On Friday morning, reports from ESPN and the New York Daily News surfaced that Carmelo Anthony was upset about Phil Jackson’s decision to draft Kristaps Porzingis.

On Friday night, Anthony took to Instagram to offer his opinion on Porzingis in an interesting, unfiltered give-and-take with his fans.

One user wrote on Anthony’s page that he “can’t wait” to watch Porzingis this season.

Anthony replied, “I can’t wait either. He’s a steal.”

Another user wrote that Anthony should “stop the drama” and that he was “too old to be throwing temper tantrums” about Porzingis.

Anthony replied, “DRAMA? there’s no drama. Why would there be? Yall will learn soon enough.”

In response to another user, he says, "have you heard me voice my opinion about the draft? NO. Ok then. Get your facts straight."

Porzingis wasn’t the only topic Anthony addressed on Friday night. He also responded to fans who questioned his fit in the triangle offense and his $124 million contract with the New York Knicks.

“How about you forget about Iso melo and enter the triangle !! Team ball bruh !!” one user wrote.

Anthony’s response? “you wouldn’t know the triangle if it was right there in front of you.”

Perhaps the most interesting give and take was centered on a criticism referencing Anthony’s $124 million contract with the Knicks.

The user wrote, “you got 124 million reasons to like n support any decision the Knicks make. You wanted to win you would’ve signed w/ ChiTown but you wanted every last dollar. So you don’t wanna be here, please waive your no trade clause n Phil can get you on your way. It’s about the name on the front of the jersey, not the name … excuse me, the 'brand' on the back.”

Anthony’s response?

“let me tell you something sir!!!! You have no clue what the###you talking bout. I never made an excuse about anything in my life and I###sure not about to now. Your made at the wrong person or thing in life. Channel your anger and frustration elsewhere. Not over this way. If your mad at the money I make, then so be it. Don’t look like that’s going to change. So either, love it or hate it. I can care less. I’m here for my team, my family, and my fans (obviously, not you). Your name is preznyc, so I’m assuming your from ny. Instead of being so negative, why don’t you support. Your opinion doesn’t matter to me. What you think of me doesn’t make or break. At the end of the day, I’m a NYKNICK. You either like it or not. I’m gonna do me regardless. #StayMe7o”

In a separate comment in which it is unclear what Anthony is responding to, the Knicks' star writes -- in what may be a reference to a Wale song -- "First they love you, then they hate you, then they love you again."

That's probably an accurate description of Anthony's first 52 months as a Knick.
