Phil Jackson’s Plan Worked As He Is Finally Relieved Of His Duties As President Of The Knicks


It finally happened. The day finally arrived. After all the decisions that Phil Jackson had made since becoming the President of the New York Knicks, it appears as if the one to talk about possibly trading Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis was the straw that broke the camel’s back. The Knicks announced that “Mr. Jackson is leaving his post as President of Basketball Operations, effective immediately.” The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski says owner James Dolan is looking at Toronto’s Masai Ujiri as a replacement. Let’s see what people are saying about this inevitable firing of Phil Jackson.


As great as Phil Jackson was as a NBA coach, he was equally as bad as a NBA executive. These past three years have left a bitter taste in everyone's mouth when it pertains to Jackson, especially Knicks fans. Hopefully this won't end up tarnishing Jackson's legacy as a great coach. Unfortunately the damage that he did to the Knicks in the past three years appears to already be having some effect on that legacy.
