[Guide] News on January 12, Before the game between the Knicks and the Hornets, “Zen Master” Phil Jackson accepted an interview. He said that the team
The responsibility for the poor record lies with him.
“This is my responsibility, and I am responsible for it.” The Zen master said.
Before the Hornets, the Knicks were at the bottom of the league with a record of 5 wins and 34 losses. At the same time, they set a record in team history with 14 consecutive losses.
In an earlier three-way deal, the Knicks sent JR and Shumpert away in exchange for salary space and future draft picks.
“The deal didn’t bring back a single player, which made things more difficult,” Zen said.
“But it’s the best way to change things.”
At the same time, Master Zen hoped that the fans would not blame the “rookie” coach Fisher.
“I hope the fans will spare Fisher, he’s trying to do his job. It’s not his fault.”
Zen Master said that he would rebuild through the draft and the free agent market, but he admitted that the current poor record makes signings more difficult.
“We worry that high salaries won’t buy the talents we want, and there has to be an attraction to get them to come,” Zen master said.
“But I think there will still be many agents willing to contact us.” At the same time, Zen Master revealed that the team is likely to make another move before the February trade deadline.
Recently, Zen Master said that Anthony may be reimbursed for the season due to a knee injury, and Melon has missed 7 consecutive games.
“The worst-case scenario for Melo is surgery, and we’re going to sit down and discuss that next,” Zen Master continued.
“I know this year’s All-Star (co-hosted by the Knicks and the Nets) is very important to him, and he also values the London trip on January 15 (to fight the Bucks). The final decision is in his hands, and he will do it.
Better decision for the team.”
