Carmelo Anthony has some SERIOUS BAD BLOOD for fellow New York Knicks star Jeremy Lin, as it's being reported that Anthony -- during basketball games -- acts as if Lin isn't a member of the basketball team.
When "Melo" first returned to the basketball court -- after being injured -- Lin would try to include "Melo" into D'Antoni's system. When Anthony would abandon the offense, Lin would not pass him the ball, which PISSED OFF Anthony.
Sources, according to ESPN, say that when Lin would try to talk Anthony, but he would turn his back on Lin and tune him out.
The two NEVER had a heated exchange, as players stepped in to try to come to a compromise -- agreeing to run D'Antoni's system while also adding a mix of post-ups for Anthony.

Carmelo Anthony's discontent with the Knicks organization became so severe after Monday night's loss to the Chicago Bulls, he told a confidant he preferred to be traded before Thursday's trade deadline.

Mike D'Antoni waited nearly four years before he could re-create the high-octane success he had in Phoenix, and for three exhilarating weeks in February, the New York Knicks were the NBA's team to watch.
They played fast and fun, sharing the ball and sharing laughs, and their coach enjoyed the ride as much as anyone.
