For Craigie, Phil Jackson’s tinkering with social media was the final straw…
On Thursday, just two days after Chandler scored eight points and tallied 14 rebounds in a Mavs win over the Knicks, Jackson defended the move in a series of tweets.
Even though the team hasn’t turned it around, it is a positive sign that Fisher appears to be showing some growth.
The Knicks are a franchise-worst 5-22. They have to do something, right?
If you look, you’ll see the winning organizations are more organic in their success. It starts, like it often does, with ownership, which is where we hit our dead end on Seventh Avenue.
The real reason the trade has been such a disaster has nothing to do with either Chandler or Jose Calderon’s performances. It’s about cap space.
“Come on, man,” the Knicks star responded Friday. “After all the work I did to get here and get back here, if I was to get up and want to leave now, that would just make me weak.”
This is going to be a time-consuming and painful process with the Knicks, and Carmelo Anthony is finally realizing that.
Let me start by saying I’m sorry. And then let me tell you why this Knicks debacle is your doing.
December 15 is coming, and Jackson was wise to say he wouldn’t make a move for the sake of making a move. But make no mistake about it: Change is coming, whether it’s now or after the season.
Jackson still has plenty of time to turn this disaster around, but the ‘Bockers look to be in worse shape than ever — both on the court and off.
“You came to be the savior and all of a sudden it’s like, ugh. Then you went and got Derek Fisher. Really, is he coaching? Is Derek Fisher coaching? I don’t get it. I don’t know what’s up with that team, man.”
Craig is not thrilled with what Jackson had to say with regards to his beloved Knickerbockers, while Boomer is just happy he said anything at all.
“It’s about a loser’s mentality,” Jackson told reporters on Monday. “It’s not about the skill or the talent level.”
If you insist that the Knicks are one play or one player from the top, then you’re not only impossible to take seriously, but you also cheat yourself out of the outhouse-to-penthouse thrill of a championship.
