Knicks president Phil Jackson: ‘We’re good at what we do’
The Knicks tied for the NBA’s sixth-worst record, but thanks to losing a pre-lottery tiebreaker and the Kings moving up in the lottery, New York received the No. 8 pick in the upcoming draft.
Knicks president Phil Jackson, via Ian Begley of ESPN:
The Knicks have gone 17-65, 32-50 and 31-51 in Jackson’s three full seasons. He signed Joakim Noah to arguably the NBA’s worst contract. Jackson has turned the Carmelo Anthony situation into a public mess.
On the other hand, he drafted Kristaps Porzingis and… did I mention Kristaps Porzingis? That and a couple peripheral moves (Willy Hernangomez and Ron Baker) hardly inspire on the balance.
