    Phil Jackson: Offseason moves ‘definitely worth the risk’

    I managed to watch most of the recent MSG press conference. Oddly enough, and probably irrationally, it made me more positive about the season. It wasn’t the answers to the high profile questions, it was the details when they talked specifics about how the team would play. Phil talked about what Carmelo needed to do differently, and was right on the money. Hornacek also talked about the right things too. Press conferences with previous GM’s were never like that. If they can really improve stuff like that, the Knicks should be much more fun to watch and much more difficult for other teams to play (than last season).
