Phil Jackson + D. Rose = An Even Duller Knicks “Field Trips”

Joseph Conrad once said, “A caricature is putting the face of a joke on the body of a truth.”

Well playas…I only needed one quote to describe the dull Knicks this mornin’! Anything more would be uncivilized!! They are the biggest caricature in the NBA right now and I told you boyz that they would be 3 years ago!! When they ran out, got Phil Jackson and put $12 million a year into his pockets I told you that they were doomed.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! I told you that Phil didn’t care about the Knicks or any team for that matter. He was lookin’ for a sucka to take their money. He tried to sucker the Lakers but they wouldn’t bite. Remember when the dun told them that he wanted to coach the team for $15 million but only wanted to coach the home games? He told you who he was right then and there.  The average coach in the NBA makes $5 million per year and they coach the home and away games bruh.

The fact that he has 13 NBA championship rings (11 as a coach and 2 as a player) was his leverage in his mind. However, the Lakers were at least smart enough to see the foolishness at the door. But the dull Knicks fell for it hook, line and sinker. They’ve been a joke ever since.

Fast forward to this week bruh! Derrick Rose dips on a boy and causes all types of confusion. He comes back and gives the most bizarre explanation for comin’ up missin’. Jeff Hornacek is thrown under the bus tryin’ to answer questions that he obviously doesn’t have the answers to and Phil Jackson is nowhere to be found and he still hasn’t addressed the media.

It’s not Hornacek’s responsibility to deal with off the court foolishness. It’s Phil’s job to handle it. However, the dun has been MIA. Team leadership (front office) is in the toilet and now they’ve got to put Rose back on the floor to keep him happy so that he doesn’t run away again.

So guess what playa?  He’s back in the startin’ line up on Wednesday against the dull 76ers. Talk about havin’ no team chemistry. Crazy thing is, he played well because he’s happy that he was startin’. However, the rest of the fellas are lookin’ at him with the stink eye.

Then what happens? They blow a 10 point lead in the final 2:29 to lose the game on a buzzer beater. Check this out bruh, in the past 20 seasons they were 372-0 when leadin’ by 10 or more points with three minutes left in the game. 372-0!!!!!

It’s not a coincidence that they lose the very next game D. Rose comes back from his Chicago field trip and is immediately put back into the startin’ line up.

Did I mention that Melo did what Melo does on that final play? He played no defense and just let the dun get the shot off. The dull Knicks are the dull Knicks. They’ve loss 9 out of the last 10 games!! They’re worse now than they were before Phil took over bruh! Stop me when I start lyin’!
