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.
