In staunchly defending his triangle offense, Knicks president Phil Jackson went on the offensive and chided commissioner Adam Silver for his recent dig at the Knicks still struggling with the complex offense.

Jackson indicated he is tired of all the nitpicking of an offense that brought him an NBA record 11 coaching titles. In doing so, he sounded willing to give up some of his $60 million contract to the strict league office.

“It was fun to have Spike [Lee] do the little piece on it and the humor part of it,’’ Jackson said. “I wasn’t so humored by the commissioner actually jumping on top of that, too. He didn’t need to get on that. There’s enough focus on the triangle. It’s a system, simple basketball. We’re over the triangle, and let’s get to business and play it the right way.’’
