PHIL JACKSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Phil Jackson has great quote about Knicks rebuilding

New York Knicks president Phil Jackson acknowledged that the team has had a bit of a slog to get to the point now where they are being viewed as potentially competitive. The Knicks are 49-115 since Jackson took over as team president, and he admits that they had to take their lumps to get where they are now. “Fiscally, I’ve been very responsible as a president,” Jackson said...

Phil Jackson proposes some intriguing NBA rule changes

Phil Jackson has some very interesting ideas to improve the NBA. Jackson told Charley Rosen of Today’s Fastbreak that if it were up to him, he would implement a four-point line. “Why not have a four-point line about 35 feet out?” Jackson suggested. “It wouldn’t be long before players will get reasonably comfortable shooting from out there. And having a four-point line...

Phil Jackson discusses Knicks' playoff prospects, rips East

The New York Knicks finished with a record of 32-50 this season. While that was a significant improvement over their disastrous 2014-2015 campaign, it still left them 12 wins short of making the playoffs. Phil Jackson doesn’t see why his team can’t make up those 12 games next season. In a recent interview with Bruce Beck of NBC 4 in New York, Jackson was asked about the improvements...

Jackson acknowledges modern NBA with Hornaceck hire

So maybe Phil Jackson isn’t as nuts and out of touch as we all thought. It’s not that naming Jeff Hornacek the New York Knicks’ new head coach — which the team is on the verge of doing, as first reported by Bleacher Report’s Howard Beck — is a particularly brilliant or inspiring move. Hornacek is a solid candidate with fine credentials (including a runner-up finish...

Report: Phil Jackson ‘badly’ wants to leave Knicks for Lakers

There have been rumors floating around for a while now that Phil Jackson isn’t completely sold on staying with the New York Knicks on a long-term basis. His heart remains in Los Angeles, where fiancée Jeanie Buss lives and works. Two new reports have emerged that indicate this is more than just smoke. First, Michael Grange of Sportsnet wrote this over the weekend: “...

Phil Jackson talks point guard strategy for Knicks

The New York Knicks need a point guard. Phil Jackson needs a point guard. It’s a point most with knowledge about the NBA can agree upon. Jose Calderon and his 7.6 points and 4.1 assists per game isn’t cutting it, nor is anyone on the depth chart behind him. New York hasn’t had a point to run the offense with force all season. It’s the reason the team fell out of the playoff...

Phil Jackson justifies firing Fisher with psychology lesson

New York Knicks president Phil Jackson is of course a philosophical individual who boats a very eccentric — and proven — outlook on coaching and what’s the most effective means to get the most out of one’s players. He’s also something of a social media provocateur, known for posting interesting — if not completely out-there — tweets from time to time. Those two...

Phil Jackson reunion with Lakers possible?

Would Phil Jackson ditch the New York Knicks to return home with the Los Angeles Lakers? It might not be as outlandish as some would think. The Knicks are in a world of hurt right now, having canned head coach Derek Fisher after falling well out of the playoff race in the Eastern Conference by way of losing nine out of their last 10 games. This throws Jackson under the spotlight...
