Even with Serge Ibaka on the floor, the Thunder would be hard-pressed to beat a well-oiled machine like San Antonio.
It’s not going to happen, no matter how much Phil Jackson might try. Unless he actually has Zen powers of hypnotism, and even then it’s a long shot.
If Phil Jackson interviewed him, perhaps Mark Jackson would promise to make changes. If he did, maybe it could work. But for the Knicks, that’s a bet they cannot afford to make.
What, you thought this was going to be easy? C’mon, it’s the Knicks!
As the Steve Kerr negotiations dragged on longer and longer, it became more and more clear that something wasn’t right. It was truly an “I’ve got a bad feeling about this” situation.
On Tuesday night we saw why replay in the NBA doesn’t always work the way it is designed.
Kerr will coach the Knicks next year for more than he should have been paid, and no one will care as long as he wins games.
Jackson needs to get his man. Whatever his Plan B is doesn’t matter. The Plan A needs to work. That’s why Jackson is getting $10 million a season to run the Knicks.
I don’t believe in Deron Williams, but the Nets will still manage two wins. Heat in six. As for the rest of the matchups…

Getting banned for life and fined was always the inevitable result of Donald Sterling’s racist diatribe, but it was the way NBA Commissioner Adam Silver did it that really needs to be applauded.
I’m sure Adam Silver and the NBA will do a great job and punish Sterling to the extent of their powers. But in the end they can’t give people what they want: the Clippers owner out of the league.
The worst thing Phil Jackson can do is repeat the Mike Woodson hiring process. Steve Kerr might very well end up being the best guy for the job, but let’s look at all the options first.
Phil Jackson was finally asked Wednesday about Carmelo Anthony returning to the Knicks on a max contract. His answer should ring like music to Knicks fans ears.
Frank Isola of the Daily News tried to drop a bombshell Wednesday morning, but the story’s own headline betrays how minor the story really is.
