Followed by more unsavoury remarks from Jackson, no doubt.

Makes you wonder why Matt Barnes had such a problem with Derek Fisher. He played a year under Phil Jackson, he should be accustomed to the triangle.

If we don't sort out this mess KP will bolt next summer and if he signs for another team then we match there offer I think he'd demand a trade soon after

This season Jackson revealed a side to him that we rarely if ever saw when he was winning 11 championships with the Bulls and Lakers, that being The Zen Master is extremely sensitive to criticism from the media.


A lot easier to remain cool and calm, deflecting the slightest hint of criticism or a difficult question with dry wit, when a team is winning.

It's spot on. He hasn't made the transition to the front office, and his ego is getting in the way.

Phil's going to be more involved with "mentoring" - in other words, more undermining Hornacek.

This can't work....


Andrew, do you see what some of these ex-Knicks are doing in the playoffs? Cats always flourish once they leave this garbage franchise.

At least Phil can say he built a championship team. Unfortunately, it was in Cleveland.

It's understandable if Phil doesn't want to be a head coach anymore. He's 71, he's got some health issues, and he's gone through the rigours of an NBA season many times over, where he's proven himself again and again. That's fine, totally fair. But if that's a role he can no longer dedicate himself to, then he's got to let it go in order to do his best in his new front office role. He has to work with his coach, not undermine and try to control them.

I'm sure some might try to spin his "mentoring" role as something positive, given the fact he has eleven championships and a lot of wins under his belt. It wouldn't be so bad if Hornacek were going to him for advice, actually seeking his counsel and working with him to devise strategies, of his own volition. When the "advice" is being thrust on you, when your practices are being halted and you're being made to look like an ineffectual fool...well, that's a different story altogether.

Again, it's strange to see, because Phil suffered through dysfunction and disrespect with the Bulls' brass, and butted heads with Jim Buss during his tenure with the Lakers. You'd therefore think he could relate to how it feels to be the coach in that position, and how unwelcome that intrusion and interference is. Then again, he won despite the dysfunction, so maybe he thinks it somehow helps, conveniently ignoring the fact that having Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Shaquille O'Neal, and Kobe Bryant was a good way of nullifying any destructive effects of inner chaos. Or maybe he just thinks he always knows best. Perhaps a bit of both. In any case, even if he isn't making all the terrible moves that some of his predecessors did, he's messing things up in his own way.

By winning the last game of the season, Knicks cost themselves two spots in the draft lottery. Those clowns can't even tank right. And Phil Jackson has officially lost it with his quote, "We're good at what we do"....what's that, Phil, lose?

I have a sinking feeling Phil will base this year's draft on whether or not the kid can play the "triangle". Just imagine Monk falling to the Knicks, but Phil drafts the French kid instead. If that happens, the reaction will be worse than what Porzingis got.

Jeffx on suicide watch with the news Jackson is open to trading Porzingis.

Off season is the best time of year since the Finals are basically a formality for now.

If they trade kristaps that might solidify the Knicks front office as most dysfunctional/idiotic even over the Kings somehow
