The season ended for the New York Knicks and the crisis on the team remains as Phil Jackson said that it would be better for Carmelo Anthony to move somewhere else and Kristaps Porzingis seems to take the side of Melo.

Kristaps Porzingis skipped his exit meeting with Knicks president Phil Jackson and general manager Steve Mills on Thursday, a source confirmed to “The New York Post“.

Porzingis was outspoken about the club’s “confusion’’ during the season and skipped the meeting because of dysfunction that could lead Carmelo Anthony to be traded this summer. Then on Friday, Porzingis “liked’’ Anthony’s Instagram response to Jackson’s press conference, a post of a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Great Gatsby” with the word “really” under it.

On Wednesday, when the Knicks finished their season with a 31-51 record, Porzingis didn’t sound like he wanted to hear the term “rebuilding.’’

“No one’s comfortable with losing,’’ he said. “If it means going in the right direction and doing the right thing, let’s do that. But just having no idea the direction, then it’s not going to work out. The direction has to be clear what we want to do.”
