IFWT_Kobe Phil 13

By the time he first left the Lakers, Phil Jackson had a pretty broken relationship with Kobe Bryant.  Jackson then published a book highly critical of Kobe, fracturing their relationship further.  So just how bad did it get?

IFWT_CoachK


Let us know how you really feel Coach K! I’m not sure how close of friends Coach K and Phil Jackson are, but it’s safe to say Phil is not going to be a fan of Mike Krzyzewski’s criticism of the triangle offense that Mr. Eleven rings continues to shove down the throats of Knicks fans and players.

Look at the comments from any Youtube video with LeBron James highlights and you continuously see the same word “travel”.  Many people complain that James travels a lot especially during his ferocious dunks.  Now that sentiment is coming from New York Knicks president Phil Jackson, who thinks basketball has lost its way, and he cited LeBron James when outlining the problems.

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.

IFWT_Phil Jackson

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. He also added how the Knicks are not likely to contend for a championship next year, but hopes to earn a playoff birth. (Sigh)

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.
