The Zzzen Master.
Phil Jackson is getting killed [online] today for his comments about potentially trading Kristaps Porzingis ahead of tonight's NBA Draft.
Everyone from Stephen A. Smith to the local twitter troll has something to say about the Zen Master and his comments made during an interview with MSG's Al Trautwig last night.
But that's not the only reason people are talking about Phil Jackson today.
One of Top-15 draft prospects chimed in with an anecdote about his workout for the Knicks in which Phil was fading in and out of sleep. On ESPN's "Outside The Lines" this morning, Jay Williams recalled a story that he heard from one of the incoming rookies.
“A top-15 draft pick told me the other day — because we were involved in this conversation about Phil Jackson and the Knicks — he said Phil Jackson was falling in and out of sleep during my workout,” Williams said “Yes. ‘Falling in and out of sleep at my workout.’ This is what this guy told me.”
The Knicks have the #8 pick in tonight's NBA Draft and as of right now Kristaps Porzingis is still on their roster. Of course, anything can happen from now until the draft especially with Phil Jackson pulling the strings.
