Top 10 Reasons The Knicks Haven’t Signed Phil Jackson Yet:
1) Carmelo Anthony heard Phil Jackson’s nickname Zenmaster and demanded the Knicks let the Rockets sign him instead.
2) James Dolan somehow confused Phil Jackson with Isiah Thomas and retracted the offer.
3) The Knicks let Phil Jackson sleep on it, and then called at 3 am to inform Jackson they had signed Mike D’Antoni.
4) Why use the triangle, when you can use the ISO?
5) Jackson convinced Dolan to pay him the same amount of money and years as a Knicks consultant instead.
6) Half the team took the term triangle literally.
7) Jackson’s system requires the point guard to stay back and shoot threes. The Knicks preferred Raymond Felton’s method.
8) Jackson believes in a calm approach, occasionally featuring mind games to get the most out of his players. Dolan believes in signing Steve Francis and Stephon Marbury.
9) Carmelo Anthony gave Phil Jackson the same vote of confidence he gave Mike D’Antoni and Jeremy Lin.
10) The Knicks didn’t have enough left to pay Jackson after they worked out Allan Houston’s still monthly payments.
