photoDon’t expect miracles right away from Phil Jackson as he takes over the New York Knicks.

Unless, of course, you consider making the playoffs this season befitting of miracle status.

Because as much as Jackson talked about the future and the past, it was the present where he spoke most definitively. There were at least four occasions on which he discussed the upcoming playoffs, and only once did he hedge and acknowledge the Knicks might not make it.

That six-game winning streak you guys are on? Make it seven!

That 4-game deficit behind the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference? Get it down to 2, then 1. And set yourselves up to get on a roll in mid-April that will carry into the playoffs.
