NBA News: Knicks Introduce Phil Jackson As President

The New York Knicks held a press conference this morning to officially introduce Phil Jackson as their new team president of basketball operations.

Jackson returns to the team who drafted him in 1967 and where he won two championships as a player. He will surely be tested in his first front office position of his career and has the tough task of turning around a Knicks squad that is currently 27-40 this season and four games out of the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference.

Jackson will also have to do all he can with Carmelo Anthony to try and get him to re-sign with New York during the off-season. On Tuesday, Jackson gave his full support to the 29-year-old All-Star, saying he might be “the best isolation player in the league” and that he has “no problems with committing to saying Carmelo is in the future plans.”

Anthony will most likely opt out of his current contract at the end of this season. While this is clearly a game-changing move, there are rumors that Anthony plans on leaving New York despite Jackson’s arrival.

    Heres your chance Jim! Prove LakerNation wrong! I suggest…

    1. Fix your relationship with your sister
    2. Address the nation that you will not rest until you bring us back to the top
    3. Fire D’Antoni
    4. Make a splash in the offseason

      Just an idea, but wonder if Pau would have an interest in playing for the Knicks now that Phil intends on implementing a different system. If so would the Knicks be interested in a sign a trade which goes for Pau for Bargnani (2015 FA).

      This in turn would give the lakers another big aside of a more tradeable commodity to which they might be able to utilize to get the ball rolling with regards to helping to turn things around? Shouldn’t be opposed in acquiring another asset that can be traded before the deadline.

        If the Lakers did trade for a big, It would be Chandler…they were interested in him this year according to reports. He’s a guy…even if they draft Embiid, would be someone great for Embiid to learn from.

          Tyson would be more of a keeper as opposed to Bargnani (trade bait). But Chandler’s salary is the issue tho would definitely help to increase the defensive intensity.

      Yeap Jim Buss must do all that tbh.

    It’ll be interesting to see what Phil manages to put forth down the line. However, at most see him holding this position for 5-6 years tops IMO.

    Phil Jackson has been gone for several years now he has a job with the Knicks that’s good for him.Now it’s time for Jim Buss to step up and prove he is the right guy to bring the Lakers back to prominence.This city of LA deserves a championship.Competition brings the best out of people like Jim Buss IMO.

    What could have been… What should have been!

    Hearing Phil talking philosophy. Talking about the Triangle, teamwork, NOT PLAYING THE PLAYERS TILL THEY BREAK DOWN was so refreshing, and so sad. If anyone thinks ‘Okay Jim Buss, now Phil’s gone you can move forward’ you are delusional. JB has been in/and making decisions for over 5 years now. He’s a spoiled brat kid that fired anyone that had anything to do with a Champion Mindset. Then brought in his buddy the bartender to lead basketball operations. WTF? Because of this buffoon the Fucking Clippers are the b-ball team in LA. Hear what I’m saying the Fucking Clippers.
