A caller called into the Stephen A show and asked about Phil Jax. Stephen said he KNOWS from multiple sources that Phil Jackson "wants to be here" and if the Knicks "Want" him they can have him.
He followed up on it by saying "Its up to Dolan. If Dolan wants him he can have him...But he has to want him.'
Dolan is a total dumbass but even i dont think hes dumb enough to pass of Phil Jax!
- My Zen doesn't come cheap
really though he probably will want some say in the personnel on the team similar to Adelman in Minnesota. I have a feeling its control more than money that is jamming this up.
Cmon home Phil!
Doesn't Phil Jackson always toy with the idea of coaching the Knicks but ends up rejecting them whenever he's not coaching?

Phil's not coming mid-season though. He's coming at the end of the year. If we fire D'Antoni now, we're just going to have the rest of the season with Mike Woodson as coach.
i hate dantoni so much at this point already. please let the guy go. he makes me miserable
Phil Jackson is a pipe dream, doubt he comes but we can at least give woodson a shot at head coach
Both Wilbon and Stephen A Smith said he is willing to come. His wifey Dropped a ton of hints when he was leaving LA he would be looking at NY.
The only question is will Dolan fall back and let it happened. Now with that said correct me if I am wrong but isn't he somewhat a less involved owner with the successful rangers because their coach more or less runs that team? I am hoping I am right because he doesn't need to get involved am I right. He has the talent to sell MSG out. He has Lin to get all that money from the Asian markets that follow him. Why would he be against a coach who if he is successful will get him playoff money $$$ and atleast 1-3 championships to shut up all his haters. He want's to be the Yankee's go and get Joe Torre then.
Don't get hyped for no reason. This is a win - win situation for Smith if the Knicks get him, he says I told you so. If they don't, I told you its all Dolan's fault.
You really think Phil jackson had a conversation with this assdick and was like, "Hey Steve, don't tell anyone this, but I really want to coach for the Knicks before I retire"
Smith is just connecting rudimentary dots that any average fan could come up with.
Jackson played for the knicks
Jackson isn't coaching
+ Knicks have 1 of the most talented teams in the league
Phil Jackson wants to coach for Knicks
**** Stephen A. Smith a monkey on a typewriter could do his job
