Bernucca: Jackson’s Resume Alone Not Nearly Enough To Fix Knicks

12 Comments

220px-Isiah_ThomasPhil Jackson won’t be awful as president of the New York Knicks. He certainly won’t be as bad as Isiah Thomas was in running the club. And he will almost certainly be better than David Kahn, Bryan Colangelo, Joe Dumars, Otis Smith and Geoff Petrie have been in recent years.

But Phil Jackson isn’t Isiah Thomas, or David Kahn, or Bryan Colangelo. He’s Phil Jackson, with a reputation of all things basketball that he touches turning to gold.

And that’s exactly what Knicks fans – now with three generations of folks waiting for another NBA title – will expect from Jackson.

SH Blog: Parsons credits himself for influencing Howard’s decision, Wall and Wizards in advanced talks for max contract agreement

Chandler ParsonsDuring the recruitment of Dwight Howard, you often heard the name Chandler Parsons attached to the Houston Rockets anytime there was news about making efforts to convince the center to join them.

Most of us took the news that Parsons had been talking to Howard everyday with a grain of salt with the mindset of “as if he can really make a true difference.” But as it turns out, the forward played an enormous part in helping Howard make his decision. Just ask Chandler himself, from Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports:

“I think I had a big impact,” Parsons said at USA Basketball’s mini-camp. “The first thing he said at the press conference was that, ‘You guys should thank Chandler Parsons because he is a big reason why I am here.’

“Obviously, he loves the team, [general manager] Daryl Morey, coach [Kevin] McHale and all that. But I think I just gave him that comfort that you got one of your boys here who is also a key part to the team, a young guy. And we can grow on this for a long time.”

Tweet of the Day: Kenneth Faried

Leave a comment

While Sunday played host to Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals in the NBA, the world of music was treated to hilarity.

Sunday night at the Billboard Music Awards—which netted their highest ratings in 12 years—R&B singer Miguel attempted to platform jump over a group of fans during a performance. Needless to say, his jump did not end well. Additionally, hip hop fans were given behind-the-scenes pictures of Drake on the set of a forthcoming music video for his song, “No New Friends.”

Unfortunately for both Miguel and Drake, fans took to Instagram to demonstrate their photo-editing and comedic prowess using the music stars’ likenesses to make internet memes. Many people have gotten a good laugh at their expense.

Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried showcases his favorite image.

My personal favorite has to be the one of Drake hitting the home run.

It’s almost believable. Almost.

Whatever their reasons for making the memes, one thing we can be sure of:  internet fans are hilarious.

Keep on doing what you do internet fans.
