NBA: Phil Jackson Says Timberwolves Had Agreement to Trade Kevin Garnett to Lakers in 2007

IFWT_Kevin Garnett Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves trade Kevin Garnett to the Boston Celtics in 2007.  It changed everything, making Big 3’s popular and changed the balance of power in the Eastern Conference.  The Celtics won the 2008 title immediately after acquiring Garnett and Ray Allen, and made the Finals again two years later. The Big Three of Garnett, Allen and Paul Pierce was the NBA’s defining superteam until LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh teamed up in Miami in 2010.  But Garnett was almost a Laker.

As Phil Jackson gave his end of the year “Zen Address” to the media today, he spoke about the high possibility of the Knicks trading away their first round draft choice if they fell to the 5th pick.

NBA: Derek Fisher Says Knicks Can Win 63 Games Next Year

IFWT_Fisher


As a Knicks fan, I would like to believe in Derek Fisher. But when he is talking crazy like this it makes it a little harder. The Knicks have only won 15 games so far this season with just a few left. It is the worst season in the history of the franchise and while Fisher shouldn’t get a lot of blame for it, he does. Who knew back before the season started how quickly things would fall apart, or that Melo really wouldn’t be anywhere near 100% before shutting it down. It is cool to look forward to next season with a positive attitude, but to say a team this bad could win 48 more games next season is more than a stretch.

NBA: Phil Jackson To Knicks Fans: “Sh*t Happens”

IFWT_Phil


It’s no secret the Knicks are having the worst season in franchise history and have been difficult to even watch. It was the further thing from the minds of most fans and people within the organization the day Phil Jackson was hired to run things. It was an upbeat time in New York and the buzz was back at MSG. Unfortunately the buzz faded quick and the reality check came very fast. Phil himself described the season with two words, sh*t happens!

NBA Report: Knicks Might Not Draft Karl-Anthony Towns Because His Butt Isn’t Big Enough

IFWT_Karl Anthony Towns

Charley Rosen, Phil Jackson’s confidant and his former longtime Albany Patroons assistant coach, believes center has to be the Knicks’ No. 1 priority in the offseason. Rosen, a triangle offense savant, believes Kentucky’s Karl-Anthony Towns, who has growing momentum as the No. 1 overall pick, isn’t the answer as the low-post threat needed in the triangle, but free-agent-to-be center Greg Monroe of Detroit would be a great Jackson pickup.

NBA: Phil Jackson Says Knicks Priority is Free Agency Not the Draft

IFWT_Phil Jackson

After a couple bad trades and a self admitted “project gone awry”, Knicks president Phil Jackson is faced with the task of rebuilding a team that has steadily gone downhill.  With currently the worst record in the NBA, it’s assumed the Knicks are in full tank mode and will likely end up with a top-3 pick in the upcoming draft.  Jackson has also spent a lot of time lately at college games scouting potential players.  Many Knicks fans have their sights set on Jahlil Okafor or Karl-Anthony Towns to save the team but it turns out despite all those facts, Jackson is actually focused on free agency.

There’s a few things Phil Jackson and Kobe Bryant have in common; they’re both strong, outspoken and winners.  While most like to think that the two had the best relationship and Jackson has even referred to Kobe as “my son”, Jackson has also written and expressed some damaging things about the Black Mamba.  In an interview with GQ, Kobe explains those turbulent times with the Lakers while he was trying to work with Shaq and Jackson and how rough things were between them; at one point Kobe even hated Phil Jackson.
