PHIL!!…What are you doing?!
These are the exact words that are being mimicked by super #KnicksTape fans as they been hearing the wild rumors regarding the recent decisions Phil Jackson is planning to make for the team. According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks are looking to acquire Kansas Jayhawks forward Josh Jackson. Jackson, a projected top 3 lottery pick in this year’s NBA Draft in which teams like the Phoenix Suns currently hold picks, has become eye candy for Phil. As with recent talks, Phil been displaying willingess to acquire the pick, going so far as to insinuate he would give up his young promising superstar in Kristaps Porzingis.
Porzingis, who averaged 18.1 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game in 2016-17 season, hasn’t been on Phil’s good side lately. There has been tension coming from Phil aimed directly at the “hooping unicorn” for skipping the team’s exit meeting to return home to Latvia. Prior to this, the 2nd year sensation expressed frustration with the Knicks’ inconsistency, particularly with their execution of Jackson’s beloved triangle offense.
Recently, the 11-time NBA World Champion came out to the media and said “As much as we love this guy, we have to do what’s best for the club”. Now if Phil doesn’t want to get ran out of New York for good, he should know that he better leave Porzingis on his roster. After all, the damage has been done for the bashing of his all star forward Carmelo Anthony. Phil, don’t put the nail in the coffin by letting go the league’s brightest star.
