Knicks president Phil Jackson didn’t waste time before ruffling feathers. In remarks that were un-Zen-like, Jackson made no bones about his dislike for the roster, or in his belief this playoff push will have a happy ending.
“We’re in a talent hunt,” Jackson said to a New York Times reporter on his way out of Staples Center after the Knicks were humiliated by the Lakers 127-96. “We have to bring in talent.’’
It was unclear if Jackson was referring to better players or talent evaluators, considering the question related to hiring new front-office personnel. But the message was exact. Jackson called the Knicks’ roster “clumsy’’ before the 2012-13 season, and it appears nothing has changed in his mind.
