Jeff Van Gundy takes dig at Phil Jackson’s triangle offense

Former New York Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy doesn’t seem too impressed with Phil Jackson and his triangle offense. During his Knicks tenure, Van Gundy once called the Zen Master “Big Chief Triangle.” This probably stems back from Jackson’s days as Chicago Bulls coach when Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and company routinely broke the Knicks hearts. Put it this way, JVG once...

Can Carmelo Anthony fit into Knicks' triangle offense?

The criticism and derision of the triangle offense rankles Phil Jackson. It bothers him when he hears critics say it requires a Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant to win with it. So by installing his preferred offense with the New York Knicks, who will be taught by first-year coach Derek Fisher, Jackson is not on a vanity project. Jackson, starting his first full season as president...

Michael Rapaport’s Bill Russell ‘Overrated’ Claims Shot Down By Smart People (Video)

Knicks’ big plans for Andrea Bargnani already gone awry

There was hope Andrea Bargnani would become a big cog in the Knicks’ triangle offense. There was hope Derek Fisher’s defensive-minded approach would rub off when training camp commenced in West Point. There was hope J.R.
