Phil Jackson former New York Knicks title winner as a player and the man who led the Chicago Bulls to six championships and the LA Lakers to five is back in the Big Apple, this time as the newly installed president of the New York Knicks.
After three years away from the court Jackson is relishing his new challenge:“We want to build also some things that are very important to basketball players. Developing a health record in which injuries are limited. Developing a mindset in which focuses on capability, developing a system so that balls are moved, passes are made and people make cuts to create open opportunities for teammates. These are things that are important to me,” he said.
Knicks fans are celebrating the return of Jackson as they strive to bring the title back to Madison Square Garden for the first time since 1972-3.
