The ‘Bockers must feel Jackson’s arrival is a slam-dunk, even though multiple reports say the Hall of Famer still hasn’t officially signed on the dotted line.
It’s been said that sometimes less is more. I’ve heard it uttered myself on numerous occasions. Except when it comes to free agency.
I see virtually no scenario in which Jackson looks bad coming out of this Knicks opportunity. If he clashes with Dolan and the result is an ugly divorce, everyone would blame Dolan and Jackson’s reputation would barely be scratched.
Two Lakers greats are chucking up a half-court shot at the buzzer, campaigning Los Angeles brass to swoop in and hire the Zen Master. Will it go in?
The so-called Zen Master, who has 11 NBA titles as a coach and two as a player, verbally committed to running the team’s basketball operations over the weekend, according to the New York Post.
The details ARE important, and that’s why it is taking so long to make this deal official. It’s a good thing that both sides aren’t just jumping into the pool eyes wide shut.
By dint of his divine career, the Zen Master’s aura will cure the diseased Knickerbockers. It seems so simple you wonder why Jim Dolan didn’t do this sooner. But there are myriad contradictions to the move.
GM John Idzik is opting for the conservative approach thus far, which isn’t sitting well with Craig and has him pining for the days of Mike Tannenbaum.
Sources have said Phil Jackson is close to agreeing to become the next Head of Basketball Operations for the Knicks, with a deal that could be finalized by the end of the week.
“Phil doesn’t want to work with Steve,” a person close to Jackson told the New York Daily News. “Mills doesn’t know what to think now. Dolan is calling the shots on this one.”
According to a report, the Hall of Famer is expected to tell owner James Dolan on Monday whether he’ll accept a position in the organization’s front office and run basketball operations.
Boomer and Craig were in lockstep early Monday with regards to Phil Jackson joining the Knicks front office…
Phil Jackson may one day return to the Knicks — just not as head coach. The team has reportedly offered the legendary coach a front office position. Jackson was said to be mulling the offer and expected to give his answer next week.
I just don’t get it. It was reported that Jason Kidd “impressed” GM Billy King during his meeting. With what? His shiny championship ring?
Plan A seemed to be, “Let’s get Phil Jackson!” That pipe dream was extinguished after one courtesy phone call. We’re still waiting on Plan B.
