The executive director of the NBA Players Association has already weighed in on Phil Jackson saying New York Knicks guard Carmelo Anthony is “better off somewhere else.” Turns out she had a lot more to say on the topic.

Executive director Michele Roberts complained about Jackson’s “inappropriate comments” on Anthony back in April, but she elaborated to The Vertical about the New York Knicks president’s behavior regarding the team’s best player.

“I think Phil was deliberately trying to shame ‘Melo out of the city,” she told The Vertical, later saying the league is unlikely to sanction Jackson for his comments, something she “would have bet my paycheck on” at season’s end.
