We’re sorry Mr. Jackson, but the Knicks are for real.
After three years, it was announced Wednesday morning that Phil Jackson, president of the Knicks team, has been fired.
Jackson and owner James Dolan issued a press release confirming the firing, stating that they have decided to “mutually agree to part company” after “discussing the future”.
Dolan praised Jackson’s work for the team and thanked him. Jackson wished the team nothing but the best “today and always”.
So how is Jackson going to be replaced? Hmm let’s see. Dolan ain’t going to do it. He said so himself.
“After careful thought and consideration, we mutually agreed that the Knicks will be going in a different direction,” Dolan added.
Over the short period of time, general manager Steve Mills will run the team while Tim Leiweke will advise the organisation.
