Carmelo Anthony expressed a willingness to change his game if asked by Phil Jackson.

Jackson spoke on the record about Anthony's game approximately two years ago.

"Carmelo has to be a better passer," said Jackson. "And the ball can't stop every time it hits his hands."

Anthony believes the presence of Jackson makes the New York Knicks' more attractive long-term.

"The big picture, absolutely, for the big picture this is definitely more attractive," said Anthony.
