    1. This Phil Jackson stuff makes me absolutely sick to my stomach.

      Phil – you weren’t hired to install a system. You were hired to bring the Knicks a championship. The system is a means to a championship, and eleven championships or not, many more championships have been won without playing the Triangle than have been won with the Triangle. The system has been a failure EVERYWHERE it has been tried unless you were the head coach AND you had basically 2 top 50 players of all time playing for you.

      What I can’t stand is the utter contempt for anything that doesn’t fit into his narrow worldview. This whole “mindfulness” and philosophical image is total crap. Right now he is defined by his pride — “do they have 11 rings to show you?!” — and inability to see outside his own echo chamber. Does that sound like anything that comes from Buddhism or Zen? Un-frickin-real.

      Now – is he just trolling us? Maybe. But he basically spoke in no uncertain terms that he was only going to interview people from his little ever-smaller circle. That basically comes down to Rambis and Brian Shaw. No way in the world Luke Walton is going to come here — he just saw Fisher get booted because of his lack of Triangle Purity. What forward-thinking coach wants to walk into that and have his career defined from the start like this?

      The Head Coach of the New York Knicks should be one of the most sought after jobs in all of sports. We should be picking from the very best of the best candidates. Instead we’re looking mainly at a guy who backstabbed the young coach he was supposed to mentor, and has a career 65-164 record and yet has the temerity to talk down to players, if reports are to believed. Based on what? Because he’s friends with Phil Jackson and his wife hangs out with Jeannie?

      65-164. A 0.284 winning percentage. I guess it’s fitting — Phil’s record as an executive is 49-115. A 0.298 winning percentage.

      OK. Got that off my chest. Happy friday everyone!

    2. Amen to all that, Frank, I watched some of that press conference and it did nothing but make me feel worse about this team.

    3. There’s all this talk about how you can’t win without a great quarterback in the NFL, meanwhile the Broncos just won the Super Bowl with probably the shittiest starting QB in the league.

      That Rams trade is awful.

      And they’ve found the perfect replacement! I’m dumbfounded that they’re handing over a championship team to Mark Sanchez. I feel like John Elway is like Joe Dumars. Lucked into making a great team, but isn’t exactly sure they know how they did it, nor how to repeat it.

    4. This Phil Jackson stuff makes me absolutely sick to my stomach.

      It really was an awful thing to watch. Just a long piece of trolling. And the bit where he blames the media for not talking up the Knicks so he can sign free agents? What a doooooouche.

    5. I found all the reactions to Phil’s Q&A painted a scarier picture than the Q&A itself when I was finally able to listen. I didn’t get the impression that Rambis as coach is a foregone conclusion.

      When Rambis became the interim coach, didn’t he have quotes out there to the effect of, he knew he was a placeholder? Does anyone else remember that happening?

    6. I’m going to continue my policy of not paying attention to anything Jackson says (or insinuates), and see what he ends up doing. NY media tends to portray gloom-and-doom, and I’m not interested.

    7. Phil is a dick who loves to troll the media. Generally, NY beatwriters are dicks who love to troll Knicks fans. It’s a toxic stew.

    8. Preach it Frank.

      Now – is he just trolling us? Maybe.

      I just wanted to follow up on this point because I’m seeing a lot of pushback of this type on twitter, with Knicks fans basically saying, “Oh, you can’t take anything he says to the media seriously”. And I get it that Phil is notorious for playing games in the media, and that in many cases executives have good reasons to shield their intentions from the media.

      However, Phil’s media games as a coach were usually designed to send a message to the officials, or to try to motivate one of his players. And he wasn’t exactly known for obfuscating his motives – he was fined consistently and repeatedly for his comments about officials, and if anyone remembers, he was fined for tampering with his comments about Fisher being a candidate for coach while he was still playing. So yes, he liked to use the media, but he wasn’t the type who used it to put people off his scent, he used it to send a direct message.

      Step 1: Convince the whole league you’re not going to conduct a serious coaching search, and are just going to hire a thoroughly mediocre candidate from Phil’s coaching tree.
      Step 2: ??????
      Step 3: Profit

      The problems is the other way round. What happens if Jackson promises a top coach and it simply does not happen? Or what if he ends up trading Melo? Or simply is not able to sign a top FA? Does he want to sign a stablished coach then? Perhaps he is simply holding his hand: if we get top FA, he will sign a stablished coach whose system might not be the triangle, but if the Knicks stay put, he will continue implementing the triangle.

      As wetbandit said, i think it is better to judge Jackson on what he does, rather than on what he says..

      Nobody is talking about promising signing a particular coach or even a particular kind of coach. But you cannot convince me that there’s any set of circumstances that make it the smart move not to conduct a full search that considers a wide variety of top-tier candidates. If we end up signing a couple top free-agents and look like a strong playoff team next year, maybe Thibs is the right coach, and if we end up trading Melo and rebuilding maybe somebody more like Jay Wright or a young assistant with player development chops should be in the running. But either way, being friends with Phil Jackson is not one of the hundred most important criteria, and for Phil to keep talking about it only serves to make the organization look bad.

    11. I’m writing in from Venice, Italy to ask what is wrong with some of you people? We’re very lucky to have Phil on our side.

    12. But you cannot convince me that there’s any set of circumstances that make it the smart move not to conduct a full search that considers a wide variety of top-tier candidates.

      Yes, but why do you think that is not going to happen? Because Phil told that to the media?

      I am pretty sure you can reach out different coaches without telling it to the media, with the bonus of not having pressure on the FO / Candidate to make a decission. Let us judge Phil on what he does, all this talk is moot till we see what happens.

    13. “Okay, okay, he hired Rambis. But let’s wait another couple of years and then maybe we can judge Phil.”

      I even agree with the idea that I find it hard to believe that even a stubborn egomaniac like Jackson will actually do what he says he’s going to do in that speech, but the dude comes out and drops this huge troll job and we’re supposed to bend over backwards to give him every benefit of the doubt?

      I would love this to be true — but what I do know is that he fired Derek Fisher for not being devoted enough to the triangle. I thought originally that he fired Fisher because he had lost the locker room or that people had lost respect for him because of the Barnes thing. But by all reports, the team was really upset when Fisher was fired, and then they basically mailed it in for Rambis.

      And if Rambis is so great, why the f*ck didn’t Phil just hire him in the first place, rather than making him the primary backstabber associate head coach?

    15. Some of yall are straight buggin’ and are so skeptic that you’re not paying attention to a few things.
      1: “Phil said he’s going to reach out to guys he knows.”
      A. how long has this man been in the NBA? Is it plausible his connects span wider than, say, Derek Jeter’s proverbial blackbook? It’s already been reported that he’s aware of the fans dissatisfaction with Rambis. I don’t think his coaching wishlist is as short as some here think it is.
      B. I’m no fan of Shaw, but someone over on P & T recently posted a credible defense of his tenure in Denver. And is it crazy to think that Walton isn’t just a potential triangle guy but a potential coach period to other team execs that took notice of the job he did subbing for Kerr? Shaw/Walton may not be the most desireable coaching candidates, but you can make cases for each of them.

      Which leads me to…
      2.

      The Head Coach of the New York Knicks should be one of the most sought after jobs in all of sports. We should be picking from the very best of the best candidates.

      no it isnt.
      I love the New York Knickerbockers with all my heart, but that’s simply not a universal truth. Phil is trying to not just rebuild a team but clean up around 14 years of DolanRule. There are other NBA franchises that have been far better ran and/or have more for a coach to work with (although Porzingis is gonna start to change that).
      Also remember that if this were a “normal?” rebuild where 2 years of draft picks weren’t traded, Phil would be picking his 3rd lottery selection this summer and not just trying to buy into the late 1st round or 2nd round. In my mind, we have to rely on free agents to fill positions (backcourt) where instead we shouldve been drafting for. Free agents that have to CHOOSE to come here vs draft picks you can pluck and have a considerably controlled low-cost for 3 to 4 years.

      This is gonna take a while. Let’s have a little patience.

    16. Yes, but why do you think that is not going to happen? Because Phil told that to the media?

      I am pretty sure you can reach out different coaches without telling it to the media, with the bonus of not having pressure on the FO / Candidate to make a decission. Let us judge Phil on what he does, all this talk is moot till we see what happens.

      Okay so now we’re back to my original post. You’re suggesting that Phil is playing coy in order to do what? To not put pressure on the front office? How has what he has done reduced pressure on the front office? If anything it has intensified media and fan criticism. To remove pressure on a candidate to make a decision? That’s basically nonsense. Nobody is saying that he should call out a specific candidate by name.

      Unless you can actually give me a reasonable explanation for why there’s any value in Phil saying he’s only interviewing people he knows when in actuality he’s considering a wide variety of qualified candidates, I think it makes a hell of a lot more sense to assume that Phil is telling the truth than to assume he’s literally trolling the fanbase – lying with no purpose in a manner that only serves to get people riled up. It just makes no sense to assume that.

    17. “Okay, okay, he hired Rambis. But let’s wait another couple of years and then maybe we can judge Phil.”

      I even agree with the idea that I find it hard to believe that even a stubborn egomaniac like Jackson will actually do what he says he’s going to do in that speech, but the dude comes out and drops this huge troll job and we’re supposed to bend over backwards to give him every benefit of the doubt?

      What i say is not to give him the benefit of the doubt, but that it is so difficult to tell the truth from the media, that we should judge him on what he actually does.

      He was supposedly in talks to trade the Porzingis pick,and many people here were killing Phil for that; in the end he didnt. It is really difficult to know if it was true, or not, or if it was just his duty to gauge the value of the pick. The point is that all the people that were killing Phil for that, were just killing him for a hypothetical. I dont see how you can make reasonable judgements based on hypotheticals (even if they come from the mouth of the man himself).

    18. Okay so now we’re back to my original post. You’re suggesting that Phil is playing coy in order to do what? To not put pressure on the front office? How has what he has done reduced pressure on the front office? If anything it has intensified media and fan criticism. To remove pressure on a candidate to make a decision? That’s basically nonsense. Nobody is saying that he should call out a specific candidate by name.

      But lots of people have called out specific candidates by name. Melo wants Thibs, and so does Isola. Come on, last year he made known that he had an agreement with Kerr and we know how it did end up. Saying that the current interim coach is OK with him is as noncommittal as he can be. I mean, he is not going to fire Rambis in advance just to be spurned by Blatt and Thibs, and then choose a candidate he likes less.

    19. He was supposedly in talks to trade the Porzingis pick,and many people here were killing Phil for that; in the end he didnt

      Yeah, but that could be because the other team(s) backed out.

      And trading the Porzingis pick wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, anyway. There was a lot of value up an down the draft last year. Ending up with Miles Turner and an additional pick in the draft would put this team in a pretty good spot to build from.

      re:the triangle

      Michael Jordan had all of his success in the triangle. Why hasn’t he mandated its use in Charlotte? Huh, Phil? Why?

    20. Michael Jordan had all of his success in the triangle. Why hasn’t he mandated its use in Charlotte? Huh, Phil? Why?

      For the same reason he drafted Kwame Brown?

    21. As terrified as I am of a Rambis/Shaw hire, I want to believe that Phil is just trolling. But the Fisher firing makes it clear that he believes what he’s saying about both the Triangle and his need to be close to the coach. Fisher was fired because he didn’t use the Triangle enough and didn’t take Phil’s advice enough. We have to assume that Phil means what he says.

    22. I don’t get all the gnashing of teeth here. Who gives two shits on a rainy day what Melo wants, or Isola or Berman.

      Phil came here to resurrect the franchise that had traded away pick interminably. He has his picks , made a great pick at #4 and his only long term FA signing is a good value player with a larger skill set than any of us knew.

      For those who were screaming that he was fielding offers for the pick last year, that is precisely what he was supposed to do and if he didn’t, he would have been wholly negligent, no matter how loud Isola and Berman scream in the press.

      He said he would hire a coach he didn’t know well. The man has been in the NBA since the mid 60’s and I’m guessing he knows practically everyone.

      Let the man do his bloody job.

    23. Walton is never coming here, unless we offer a ton more money and he cares a lot about money. He’ll be hugely in demand. Wouldn’t you rather coach the Wiz, Rockets, Wolves, Suns, or Lakers?

      In addition to having less young talent than all of those teams, we now have a team president who will tell you what offensive system to run, who your assistants are, and when to make changes. It’s a miserable job that would only appeal to willing hacks like Rambis, who knows that Phil is his only meal ticket. Rambis will be coaching Westchester Community College the day after Phil leaves the NBA.

    24. I just don’t know what to say about that press conference. I feel violated. If Phill really didn’t give a eff about having Melo and his window, he should have never re-signed him. Now, don’t get me wrong, the team needs Melo. Not at that price, but we are worse than awful without Melo. And with a lack of future assets, that is not good for a team in NY (see BROOKLYN). I would have appreciated the whole thing more if Phil had come out and said “Melo and I don’t see things the same way, so we will try and move him so that he doesn’t feel like he’s wasting the last good years of his career in a full rebuild”. DaFuq Phil?

    25. The Head Coach of the New York Knicks should be one of the most sought after jobs in all of sports.

      Why would that be the case? I love the Knicks, I’ve been a Knicks fan since the late 80s. But I’m also a fan of reality and the “mecca” of basketball is a byproduct of a bygone era. The world is global now, opportunities are global. The best players aren’t from NY anymore and haven’t been for a long time. The fan base is rabid and the news cycle is constant. Hot takes happen all the time. The organization has been run into the ground for the past 15+ years. Ownership has been a joke. A coach with credentials, a coach that wants to make a mark is not going to want that type of instability. Where he knows his job is dependent on team performance and the team has been hamstrung by mismanagement for 20+ years. Draft picks barren for this year? No way a coach takes a hellbound job like that. Maybe if there are ties to the organization already but from the outside looking in? Nah

      Until smarter decisions are being made by the management, I don’t see anyone thinking the Knicks coaching job is the premier coaching gig in the league. 2 championships in the 70s and a strong 90s run will not cut it as a pitch.

    26. It just seems to me that at some point we have to hold our GM to a higher standard than “He hasn’t made any franchise crippling mistakes”. It seems to me like almost all of the Phil “praise” boils down to that. It’s all about the dumb stuff he hasn’t done. He hasn’t traded picks. He hasn’t crippled us with any terrible long-term contracts. He didn’t trade a top draft pick for an immediate upgrade. That’s all well and good, but at some point aren’t we going to ask to see something other than non-incompetence?

    27. I don’t get it. You guys refuse to see what Phil has done. He traded freakin’ THJr for a first round pick – Jerian Grant. He got rid of the bad-culture guys, like Chandler, and JR, and even though many of you don’t get the “culture” fixation, I do. I see what the Spurs do, and that’s half culture, driven by Pop, Duncan, and their professional cast of actors. Phil gave us Lopez at a reasonable contract, who seems to be very above-average. He got us a cheap long-term flier on O’quinn. We got Hernangomez, Galloway, Lance Thomas, Derrick Williams from nothing.

      No one wants to come here. We’re a losing team with a horrible culture, with endless moves and changes to try to get relevant. We have an extremely tough fanbase and horrible beat writers. It takes time. Class A players and coaches DO NOT WANT TO COME HERE.

      And I refuse to listen to anything Phil says to the press because I think he’s just secretly at war with them. I don’t care. I’m patient.

    28. Not to say that I hope Phil does a better job of getting good players and a good coach. I don’t think he’s been good in that regard at all, but he has done a good job so far otherwise, honestly.

    29. It hasn’t been discussed much on here that THJ has been pretty good for the Hawks recently. He’s 24 and plays productive minutes on a playoff team. It was still an undeniably smart move because of the extra cheap years on Grant’s deal and because it was pretty obvious that we weren’t capable of developing THJ, but I hope we can acknowledge that the takeaway from that trade is starting to shift a bit from: “Wow, the Hawks got swindled, what were they thinking?” to “Wow, the Knicks cannot develop players for shit”. When that’s what you’re putting down as Phil’s 1A accomplishment I think you’re kind of making my point for me.

    30. wetbandit,
      I don’t think Phil has done a bad job, so I agree with alot of what you said. But for me, the season is over so there’s no need to run misdirection about how you’re gonna rebuild. Keeping the coaching candidates close to your vest is one thing, but not preparing your fan base for a full rebuild is another. Let’s face it, as long as we have Melo, we will, as fans, expect trips to the postseason- for the most part. I mean, he’s a 30 yr old, otherwordly scorer with a closing window. Regardless of the team around him, the fact that he’s recognized as a star player comes with expectstion and hopes of contending. So, just come out and say you will look to move him to a contender since things haven’t gone as you planned, and the timetable for franchise rebirth doesn’t fit your star player’s arc. That is my biggest beef with what Phil said. I just feel like that is something he shouldn’t play media games with.

    31. Oh..and the next hire should be a young coach if a full rebuild around KP is on the horizon.

    32. @28 Viva la wetbandit!

      I would change one remark you made. Phil is not secretly at war with the NY media; he is OPENLY at war with it!

    33. How in the world has the “culture” improved when the current head coach is backstabbing the previous head coach, and the top executive looks like he wants to hire the terrible current head coach because he’s a friend of his? That’s the same cronyism we saw under the previous regime, just with Phil Jackson doing it instead of Dolan. It’s Kurt Rambis or Brian Shaw instead of Chris Smith.

    34. Ian Begley ?@IanBegley 12m12 minutes ago
      After record ties were broken today by the NBA, the Knicks finished with the 7th position in the lottery. Their pick is controlled by TOR.

    35. Melo, KP, Grant and the (possibly) 7th pick in the draft would be pretty cool.

      Dammit…

      Exactly, the culture is the same. Cronyism vs Nepotism. We can’t actual say that’s an improvement. I understand Melo is loved by other players and he does seem to look out for “his” guys, but no one is rushing to help out 31 (soon to be 32) year old Carmelo in NY. Not without the payday to match. That’s just not reality. I appreciate Melo wants to help NY get a championship, but I just don’t see the help coming. What’s the actual pitch? What’s the real selling point? Phil and his 11 rings? He had 2 of the top 20 in the game for each of those. Usually the number 1 guy for 9 of those rings. The city? That’s a double-edged sword. Endorsements? Branding is global now, that’s not enough. They need to have a tangible advantage in order to get players and coaches in the organization. Those advantages need to be built on principles the Knicks management have yet to show.

    37. I bet Masai Ujiri would give us our pick back for Robin Lopez

      While that would be awesome, I’m sure the league would nix that deal in less than a heartbeat.

      That is if the rumors of him coming to NY has any basis.

    38. What do you folks think about Josh Pastner as a coach? Young with 7 yrs coaching experience, replaced Cal at Memphis and rebuilt the bball program (big shoes), and he’s a workaholic a la JVG. I know he just accepted the job at Ga Tech, but he seems intriguing. Could Phil conceivably go after him?

    39. intriguing: still my least favorite word to describe a front-office consideration

      Does he have a PhD in Solid Geometry?

    41. @42

      Why are you down on Shaw? Just because his last team was so dispirited that it broke huddles with chants of “6 more weeks!”

      You act like that’s a bad thing.

    42. Speaking of nepotism, our old pal netw3rk was killing it the other day, mocking Joshua Harris, the owner of the 76ers, for saying that Jerry Colangelo was not involved in the team hiring Colangelo’s son, Bryan, to be their new GM.

      Jerry was not involved in hiring his son, Bryan. In fact, Bryan was the result of an accidental pregnancy so Jerry had no role whatsoever

      __________________________________________________

      If I was Harris I would go a step further and be like “In fact Jerry BEGGED ME not to hire Bryan…”

      __________________________________________________

      “In fact, Jerry and Bryan have not spoken for years. Something about a borrowed Hawaiian shirt that was never returned. Very acrimonious.”

      __________________________________________________

      what if jerry actually did a thorough search but bryan interviewed for the job in disguise and actually was the best candidate

      __________________________________________________

      well, mr jolangelo, im impressed. you’re hired.

      [rips off wig and beard]

      AHAHA IT IS I, YOUR SON!

    43. Does he have a PhD in Solid Geometry?
