The New York Knicks brought in Phil Jackson to oversee all major activities as the president of the team last season. Jackson then brought in his former player Derek Fisher over the summer to be the new head coach moving forward. Put the two together and what we can expect from the Knicks is this: a good amount of the Triangle offense and plenty of movement without the ball.

Tweet of the Night: Grizzlies analyst Brevin Knight has a bone to pick with Bill Worrell and Clyde Drexler

The great crew for the talk show “Open Court” on NBATV opened up a can of worms when they discussed which 10 players should be added to the current list of 50 Greatest Players in NBA History. It’s only right that more are added to the prestigious list, and it should continue to happen over a certain period of time, given the number of fantastic players that came after the original list was announced and the unknown players that will rise in

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar and four-time league MVP LeBron James recently made waves when asked about the impact that the NBA’s new television rights deal will have on future collective bargaining (CBA) negotiations. He took a very strong stance. The whole thing that went on with the last negotiation process was the owners was telling us that they were losing money. There’s no way they can sit in front of us and tell us that right now.” SheridanHoops managing editor Chris Bernucca detailed
