Phil Jackson was in attendance for the New York Knicks' 127-96 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.
The Knicks allowed 51 points in the third quarter to a Lakers' team playing without Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant.


“Fifty-one points,” Jackson said. “When it’s 35 points you start to get worried. When it’s a 51-point quarter, that’s really awful.”



Jackson said he's in assessment mode.



“We’re in a talent hunt,” Jackson said. “We have to bring in talent.”
One could say Phil means we need more talent but with a roster that has top rotation still on the books next year one can deduce he's not enamored with what we have.

Then again so many of us were boiling over with fury ESPN had our talent pegged at 37-45 before season's begin. Usually TALENT cost money.

I wonder how Phil thinks he's going to turn this roster of stale beer with cigarette ashes and dead flies floating at the top into wine.
