James Dolan Fired Phil Jackson, But It's Too Little, Too Late

Are Knicks fans supposed to be excited about this middle-of-the-night news that James Dolan may have finally had enough with Phil Jackson?

Yeah! Great news!

Wait, why the hell did Dolan wait so long? This feels like the guy who dumps his girlfriend after his friends have been urging him to do it for months – but the couple just went and closed on a new house a week earlier.

Why would you let Phil Jackson control the 2017 NBA Draft? New York drafted Frank Ntilikina, who may turn out to be a fine player, but he’s 19! What can he possibly do in the short term to help maximize the final two years of Melo? Will he fit into the future plans of the new regime?

Why would you let Jackson engage in that silly “I’ll show you!” trade chatter about the future of the franchise, Kristaps Porzingis?

Here we are, a couple days before free agency, and NOW you want to dump Phil Jackson and chase a new GM? Man, James Dolan is a clown and the Knicks deserve whatever happens.
