NBA Rumors: 6 Reasons Phil Jackson Won't Be Saving the NY Knicks

Rumors of Phil Jackson coming to save the Knicks have been tossed around from the moment the Zen Master retired from the Lakers.

“The new name at the top of a coaching search a year from now for a team near a championship, or just any team in New York City: Phil Jackson,” said the NBA itself at the close of the 2010-11 season.

Less than a week ago, when the Journal Times reported that “with money being no object, the scuttlebutt is the Knicks brass may offer [Jackson] a four-year, $50 million deal.”

In between, Knicks fans thought of the possibilities.

Now, with the Miami Heat up a commanding 2-0 lead, and interim coach Mike Woodson looking at another first-round exit, Knicks fans have penned in Phil Jackson as No. 1 on their offseason wish list.

Hope it’s erasable ink.

Phil Jackson won’t be fulfilling New Yorkers’ dynasty dreams. Well, at least for another year.
