PHIL JACKSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Jackson says millennial-style coaching helped lead to Fisher’s firing

While Derek Fisher was never really fit to be a head coach in the NBA, it was still surprising to see Knicks president Phil Jackson pull the plug on one of his disciples so quickly.

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 wants to add four point line and six seconds to shot clock

Phil Jackson’s tenure as Knicks President has been at the very least tumultuous, if not also a bit old-fashioned. His insistence on sticking to the triangle offense hasn’t helped, especially when he gave former guard Derek Fisher his first coaching job and then replaced him with former assistant Kurt Rambis. He’s not exactly the most progressive figure in the NBA today, and...

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.

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...

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...
