Mr. Zen Master Introduced as The Knicks’ President of Basketball Operations

Mr. Zen Master Introduced as The Knicks' President of Basketball Operations

After a long and enduring process, the ailing Knicks have finally introduced their savior, Phil Jackson, as Head of Basketball Operations … The Knicks held a press conference today to introduce Jackson, a former Knicks player himself for their title teams in 1970 and 1973 …

James Dolan, the inept owner of the Knicks, has said that he will “willingly and gratefully” give up all power to Jackson … Also, ‘Melo has said that he would be willing to change his game to accomodate the wants and needs of Jackson … Sounds like everyone is on board

Jackson’s contract is for 5 years, getting paid 12 million annually … Steve Mills will remain the team’s GM, but who the hell cares?

It will be tough for Jackson to make big changes quickly in New York, where the Knicks face with the salary cap problems. Amare Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler and Andrea Bargnani will all be in the final year of expensive contracts, making them difficult to unload. And they traded their first-round pick to Denver in 2011 to acquire Anthony.

Still a lot of questions remain, and the Knicks may be too far gone for Jackson to be capable of fixing … Regardless, no one can dispute the influence that Jackson has on the league and its players already, and perhaps the name Phil Jackson itself may be enough of a pull for free agents to be enticed to come to New York … Only time will tell …
