As always, the outspoken Turner Sports analys (Charles Barkley) t was willing to discuss a number of basketball topics, including the latest rumor du jour in New York: Phil Jackson coming to work for the Knicks in an executive capacity.

“I like Phil Jackson and respect Phil Jackson, but coaching is not the problem with the Knicks,” Barkley said. “Making bad decisions is the problem. He won’t be able to fix this thing for a few years.”

“The Knicks are not a good team. I told you that four months ago. Nothing has changed. What I would tell Mr. (James) Dolan is break this thing down and start over. That’s what they have to do. You guys (New Yorkers) are not patient. How has the other way been working for you? Not well, right? You have a bunch of bad contracts and you are screwed for years. Sometimes you have to step back. Listen, what is Phil going do? Carmelo (Anthony) might leave but if he don’t leave, he’s going to put a big number on your cap. And you still stuck with Amare (Stoudemire) and J.R. Smith’s contract. It’s a mess.”

Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
