Late last month, after being traded from the New York Knicks to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Carmelo Anthony penned a heartfelt goodbye letter to the Big Apple.
But Melo's relationship with the Knicks former president Phil Jackson was anything but heartfelt. Jackson routinely took jabs at the All-Star forward throughout their time together in NYC.
And in an interview with the New York Times earlier this week, Anthony said that Jackson was willing "to trade me for a bag of chips.” While that might have been true, Jackson was fired by the organization before the team traded Melo to OKC.
That being said, Anthony made the "bag of chips" comment, and Twitter was all too happy to run with it with these hilarious reactions.
Dead. The internet remains undefeated.
Damn ... people really ran with the chips theme.
With all due respect, the Knicks didn't even get a fellow All-Star back for the swap.
And what's best about this is Anthony and the new-look Thunder host none other than the Knicks tonight to open their 2017-18 season. Can't wait!
