Phil Jackson has Knicks Right Where He Wants Them – Hasta la vista Me-lo!

I am a Knicks fan and a Phil Jackson fan,  and I am more excited about this Knicks team now, than I have been since PMFJ took over as prez.

perhaps Me-lo’s latest contract was “forced on” Phil by (ex?) alcoholic a$$hole prez Jimbo Dolan, and PJ tried his best to accommodate Me-lo with a win-now team.  He made bets on 8==D Rose and Joking Noah being healthy all year, with Noah being the defensive cornerstone. He lost the bet.  You have to gamble sometimes, especially when your aging superstar needs help.  Not any more…

Behind the scenes, and in front of your eyes, Phil Jackson the Zen Master has been rebuilding all along, with a cornerstone of players Phil believes in: Ron Baker, Chasson Randall, Lance Thomas, Courtney Lee, Willy Hernangomez, Mind Kuzmingus, Kristaps Porzingis, Kyle OQuinn, Justin Holiday, Marsh Plumlee, and Mo N’Dour.  This is the team Phil has built around his first great draft pick.

Phil said in his season-ending press conference how the team played better the last few games, against formidable opponents in the playoff hunt, a Knicks team who played the right way.   It’s with these core players, barring trades, with whom Phil will move forward with the concept of team and team defense, first and foremost.

These players don’t bitch about the triangle, they recognize it as an opportunity to score, to set up better shots, to have ball movement and player movement. It’s not rocket science, Phil says, it’s the basketball intelligence to be open to “plays”.

“According to sources, Knicks are unhappy with the triangle?” the only Knicks grumbling about the triangle are the ones with no concept of a higher bball intelligence, the confused ones: Me-lo, Rose, Jennings. CLee grumbled a bit, but he said it publicly to the press and he’s a smart player who gets it.  whereas Rose grumbled publicly and basically DOES NOT GET IT.  surprise!

Also grumbling all negative about the triangle and being anti-Phil are insipid bloggers and journalists who write anything to get clicks, as well as a slew of Knicks fans who believe the anti-Phil, anti-triangle hype, the KP is unhappy and confused hype, the bandwagon Me-lo and 8==DRose fans, dissing the triangle because “the players” don’t get it, and believe all the media hype that the Knicks, as a whole, are unhappy with “The Triangle”.

It is time… for Me-lo… to leave the Knicks and New York City, for greener pastures.  Win now, Orangeman!  and don’t let the door hit you in the NTC on the way out!

Here we are, Knicks fans, with a top 10, maybe top 7 or better, draft pick, in a great PG heavy draft, with 2 second round picks to boot! NOW, substitute another free agent superstar to take Me-lo’s place, who understands how to play team basketball and can help KP grow into a monster, under the tutelage of the smartest mentor in NBA history.

Derrick Rose & 2 friends went uninvited to an inebriated, black-out drunk girls house they’d partied with earlier, had predatory sex with her against her will. she claimed gang rape in the court of law; we men lawyers called it consent and got away with it.

Lastly, Derrick Rose.  8==D Rose.  8=======D Rose.  Maybe Phil will sign Rose to be a scoring guard?  no doubt one of the league’s best penetrators, on and off the court.  Max deal?  Meniscus says no way!  Let 8===D Rose go and you’ve got more bucks to go after a veteran or superstar PG: JrueHoliday, JeffTeague, GeorgeHill, KyleLowry, CP3.  Any of these players would automatically raise the overall intelligence of this NY team.  Can Phil replace Me-lo with another Superstar AND a Point Guard?  THAT is the question.


Personally, I’d like to see Chasson (The Dream) Randle have a shot at PG

#Knickstank yes the Knicks stank, and may have lost lottery position by NOT tanking, but you can’t stop a team from competing!!

 

The Knicks will have a  formidable team next season, and I’m excited to see the next chapter of the Knicks designed by PMFJ, with a top 10 draft pick, and 2 new superstars to help guide this solid, intelligent core of young Knickerbockers to greater heights.

8===D Rose Rape Case Taints Knicks Season

adidas-drose-logo_ani

8====D Rose
8====D Rape
8====D Knicks

New Knickerbocker DERRICK ROSE is being sued for more than $20 million by a woman who claims Rose and his friends gang-raped her back in 2013.   Read it and weep:
https://thinkprogress.org/derrick-rose-rape-case-2182c16b55e2#.dcxjczdgg

Jane Doe claims she was drugged, or blacked out/wasted from drinking when the gangrape of Defendants 8===D Rose,  Hampton and Allen occurred.

Facts: Jane Doe and friend invited to party.  Jane Doe drank A LOT.   Vodka at home waiting for the cab, red wine in the cab, and shots of tequila at the Beverly Hills house of 8===D Rose.

Defendants say she did not drink that much and appeared sober.

yet, Jane Doe’s friend, Jessica Groff, will testify that she did not want to leave Plaintiff Doe behind as she feared Defendants wanted to keep her there.  Groff knew that Plaintiff could not consent to sex in her intoxicated state and believed that is was not safe for her to remain with the Defendants

According to Defendants, Plaintiff drank only a small amount of tequila at Defendant Rose’s residence and did not seem intoxicated. (Defendant’s Separate Statement of Undisputed Facts (“DSSUF”) ¶ 30 (Docket No.113-2)). She initiated sexual interaction with all three Defendants in the Beverly Hills house and intended to have consensual intercourse. (Id. ¶ 34). After Groff’s argument with Defendant Allen, Plaintiff left Defendant Rose’s residence and invited Defendants to her apartment. (Id. ¶¶ 42, 44). Once they arrived, she let them inside and voluntarily had sex with all three men. (Id. ¶¶ 58, 61). Defendants did not know that Plaintiff was intoxicated. (Id. ¶ 29).”

the fact that she woke up messy with her dress around her neck, covered in lube, condoms on the floor…I do not know any girl who goes to bed like that, this is a sure sign that she was blacked out; when she woke she knew she had been violated, and was not in her right mind.  what girl goes to bed without washing up after having 3-way consensual sex?

Yet all three men admit to going there for the express purpose of having group sex with her (Rose: “We Men.  You Assume…”)  they knew she was wasted, and had to wake her up, or not, to have sex with her.

Jane Doe’s roommate deposition

screen-shot-2016-09-15-at-10-34-17-amDrinking tons of alcohol would make it seem to Jane Doe that she was given a rape drug, even the forensic toxicologist agrees that Jane Doe was “highly intoxicated and likely have no idea what was going on, or what was done to her” = blackout.

THE END GAME
Jane Doe lawyers: get $$$ from 8====D Rose, or put his season on hold, keep him from practicing/playing/concentrating on new team by going to court, drag his reputation thru the ringer, and private life into the public again

8====D Rose lawyers: threatening to make JDs name public, post sexy instagram pics, etc, drag her name and reputation thru the mud as a drinking, gold-digger.

Jane Doe’s testimony and deposition has been forthcoming, consistent and open about her situation. there is nothing about her character to make me believe she is in it for the money, other than wanting 8====D Rose and We Men to pay for the rape.  Once she got the civil law suit underway, her lawyer buds must have filled her head with forthcoming riches, hence, her text messages after the fact that she is expecting money.

Whereas Defendants Rose, Hampton and Allen, We Men, are only speaking through their lawyers, who seek to slut-shame JD as a defense.  Hampton and Allen have been riding 8=====D Rose throughout the proceedings, as they have since high school.

All three “we men”, as well as Jane Doe should take a lie detector test.  Was she awake and alert and was the sex consensual?  Was she intoxicated at the house?   Who is lying?

If it’s proved the sex was consensual and she’s only in it for the money, i would have to forgive We Men for being predatory macho dickheads, and root for the team, while still holding Rose in contempt. If it’s proved Jane Doe was raped, and/or Rose is suspended, I’d be in favor of dumping/trading his stupid ass, and let BJ man the point. the whole fiasco has dampened my enthusiasm for Knicks season, really don’t know whether to root for Rose personally, or yell “rape” when he shoots free throws, no matter what the outcome.

Knicks Home for Special Surgery

Knicks Hospital for Special Surgery – Knicks on Crack

Knicks Night Live and Knicks Summer League are sponsored by Hospital For Special Surgery (the Official Hospital of the New York Knicks)… just sayin’…

I love that PJ and the Knicks acquired Derrick Rose and Joking Noah (yes?) and are looking at SG Eric Gordon to fill out starting 5, but he’s yet another injury-prone glassy player ala Rose.

and yet, a healthy DRose + healthy JNoah AND healthy EGordon?  add in Olympic Melo and Legendary Latvian Hero known as Purezingis?  is this not the Stuff of Dreams?  One of the best starting 5’s in the league?

Phil putting all his eggs in one injury-prone basket c/o OBG Knicks Forum

Questions all Knicks fans are asking and arguing about: Are they healthy, and can they stay healthy?  when you have players coming off major injuries and surgeries that have kept them out a large percentage of past seasons, it seems Phil Jackson is rolling the dice that all with stay healthy enough to contribute to a full season.

Other than Rose/Noah’s Bulls connection, Rose + Gordon have history too.

Derrick and Eric bro! #KnicksOnCrack

ERIC GORDON & DERRICK ROSE WERE “THE ERIC AND DERRICK SHOW” AKA BEST BACKCOURT IN AAU HISTORY(?)

Gordon is pure shooter, a smart offensive threat, a catch and shoot first,
pick n roll n pass n drive second. Having a backcourt with 2 guys who know each other’s game from way back is a plus. With PJ’s triangle offense helping find the open man, Gordon is a winning pickup. if it happens, just sayin…

philjackson_crunch

Crunch those numbers Captain Phil!

Knicks fans were desperate for another max player to fill C or SG position… Durant, Horford, DeRozan, Whiteside… as we now know, it ain’t happening… this year.   Captain Phil and General Mills could not blow Dolan’s wad on 1 max player this year, and then only have a few million to sign another half dozen players. Phil n Mills  have to crunch the numbers! Crunch!

Next year’s a different story, mo’ money, expanded salary cap. but this year? gonna be same as last, spreading out the money to get quality, hi IQ ballers who fit the team mold.

Joakim Noah?  Yes
Eric Gordon?  Yes

who’s next?  what did i miss

The Case For Derrick Williams

koc_derrickwilliams

The case for Derrick Williams: how many players do the Knicks have that can drive to the hoop, slam down alley oops, and score 20+ points on any given night, if given the minutes? For $5M player option, he is worth the money.

With Knicks in the market for a quality PG, who will hopefully be a pass-first mentality, or a SG who can be consistent (sorry AAfflalo), along with the emergence of Jerian Grant, a healthy Tony Wroten, and the continued jelling of KP/Melo/Rolo, the Knicks have a need for this year’s players to be part of a core who play together for more than a year.

The best teams take time for players to know one another and learn “the system”. DWill should be considered part of this core; for the money he’s due, and the talent he brings, he’s a keeper.

dw_hair

DWill, like his hair, is as explosive as fireworks on any given night, given the minutes and confidence needed to succeed – boommm!

Granted, NYK do not own his rights, but DWill has option to stay with team for $5M, the deal Phil signed him with.   Here’s hoping DWill opts in for the opportunity to stick with the team that gave him the chance to show what he can do, something Sac Kings did not.

Playing in the Garden, living in NYC, being recognized and feted by Knicks fans, eating establishments, nightclubs, gorgeous women (uh, oh, sorry DWill, those girls weren’t even FROM New York)…. NYC is the place to be a star!

Every team needs a player of this caliber, who can explode on any given night, for less money than a lot of other lesser players are commanding.

Phil Jackson’s Triangle Revealed!

fermatcentre_trianglekoc

is it any wonder Melo can’t figure it out?

Phil Jackson Surrounded by Great BBall Minds and Greatest Knicks of all Time

clydemsg

the manly, mythological, legendary WaltClydeFrazier, player & broadcaster supreme

Walt Clyde Frazier, one of the greatest players in NBA history and (in)disputably greatest Knick of all time, spends much of HIS time at MSG, broadcasting games via his inimitable stylized commentary and BBall knowledge.

Can he be persuaded to impart his knowledge of the game to the raw energy and athleticism of NYK point guards of the future, Tony Wroten and Jerian Grant, have them tone down their game and tone up their bball IQ?

Clyde was teammates with current Knicks prez Phil Jackson in their respective rookie seasons; roomed, traveled, played and won 2 championships together with their beloved Knicks.

Phil Jax bonnie-ing up to Clyde in rookie seasoning

Both men are winners and Zen Masters in their chosen professions; Clyde as player, broadcaster, writer, speaker, commercial endorser; Phil as player, coach, writer and president, the latter yet to be fully realized with a chip.

Clyde Frazier Rockin’ Steady, A Guide to Basketball & Cool

Will Phil acknowledge the knowledge of old friend Clyde, who has watched and commentated brilliantly with MSG since 1998? Clyde’s commentary is laced with opinions and knowledge of the game (“see the ball, see your man!“) and of the current crop of players whom Phil has assembled.

I would like to see Phil assemble the old time Knicks, many of whom come to games and sit with Phil (Bill Bradley) or work with MSG (Earl Monroe, Bernard King et al), to be coaching mentors to the current squad. If Phil wants to be a winner, why not have the greatest veterans who ever played the game, FOR the Knicks, AT the Garden of Dreams, BE mentors and commentators with the team, at workouts, at games.

the Greatest to wear the Orange and Blue

Allan Houston is working with Tony Wroten?  EXCELLENT!  let’s move forward in that direction and have sessions both on and off the court, on how to be the best they can be, and have a winning mentality.

houston_wroten

Houston + Wroten = #NYKPG

I look forward to seeing new coach Hornacek, with his impeccable basketball career and tremendous bball acumen, talking to Clyde about the Suns’ offensive attack, and how it relates to current core of Knicks, including Melo, Porzingis, Lopez and #NYKPG Wroten & Grant.

hornacek

Jeff’s got his Horny hands full!

“I am extremely excited and honored to be the next coach of such an historic franchise,” said Hornacek. “I look forward to working with Phil – a coach and teacher of the game I have admired for many years – and collaborating with him and our staff to take this team to the level that Knicks fans expect.”

Let’s hope Coach Hornacek and President Jackson collaborate with the basketball minds of the greatest Knicks of all time. I’m sure they would all appreciate the opportunity, as would Knicks fan appreciate the thought.
