Butler cites Wade as the best teammate he has ever had. Theirs is a friendship defined by mutual respect. Wade marvels at Butler’s work ethic, while Butler sees Wade as the perfect mentor, a consummate professional with the championships, business acumen and brand that Butler craves. And today, Butler, for whom effort equals personal salvation, takes in Wade’s tirade — and then echoes the message. “If you don’t come in this m—–f—– pissed off after you lose any game, something is wrong,” Butler says. “This is your job. This is what you’re supposed to love to do, and I don’t think that everybody looks at it that way. I want to play with guys that care, that play hard, that want to do well for this organization. That want to win games. Do whatever it takes, just win. I don’t think that’s happening right now. I really don’t.”

Some in the organization believe that Anthony won’t want to give Jackson the satisfaction of running him out of town. Anthony on Wednesday didn’t sound like a player who was ready to leave. He talked about wanting to recruit free agents to New York when asked about the subject; he also acknowledged that he still holds out hope of one day playing with the Clippers’ Chris Paul and the Bulls’ Dwyane Wade. “A dream,” Anthony called it.

This summer Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul will both become free agents – and New York can create enough cap space to sign one of them – but the Knicks’ predicament has turned Anthony’s longstanding dream into the pipe variety. Unless he leaves New York. “I don’t know where that would be able to happen. It’s always a dream,” he said. “They’re all in the same boat I’m in. It’s hard to think about something else when Chris is going through his surgery and (Wade) is going through what they’re going through in Chicago. I think it’s hard to start thinking about that at this point right now. I think everybody just needs a break, everybody is waiting for the break to decompress and re-evaluate.”

But in a podcast with The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski this week, Wade admitted that Riley not calling him was the deciding factor. “I did feel at the end of the day it’s Micky Arison’s team but it’s Pat’s show,” Wade told Wojnarowski. “I love Pat and I know he loves me. The fact that we didn’t talk, that hurt. That was my deciding factor when it came down to the end of the day and he didn’t show he wanted me there. I know the Arison family loved me and wanted me there. I know Spo [coach Erik Spoelstra] wanted me there.”
