It blows my mind how arrogantly gullible New York Knicks fans are. Everybody and their baby’s momma in NYC was goin’ crazy when James Dolan told boyz that he was about to hire Phil Jackson. You couldn’t tell them a darn thing because Phil was about to fly in like the Brown Hornet or somebody and turn the whole ship around like it was on hoofed feet.
For years Jamed Dolan has been hustlin’ New Yorkers on pure emotion and they just keep fallin’ for it. I wrote the crazy Hot Joint entitled “Sucka Bait” before they even hired the ole boy explainin’ to cats that Phil was about to rob the Knicks with a butter knife and a pack of firecrackers but they wouldn’t listen.
Then fast forward a little more than three years later boyz are blamin’ Phil and Dolan is standin’ there with the same blood on his hands and nobody sees it. The Knicks have been one of the worst run organizations in the history of the NBA for decades and hirin’ Phil was simply another notch in the belt of blunders.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Phil Jackson should be every hustler’s role model!! What!!? Wasn’t he the same cat that told the Lakers before they hired D’Antoni that he wanted to coach the team but they had to pay him $15 million and he only wanted to coach the home games? Isn’t he the same cat that looked James Dolan in the face and told him that he wanted the job but he was only goin’ to live in New York half of the time?
He essentially told the Knicks upfront that he was goin’ to pull a Sam Rostein (Casino) and only put on his shirt, tie and jacket and be butt naked from the waist down.
Now my grandmother always said, “When somebody tells you who they are, you better listen to them.”
Phil told Dolan and the Knicks faithful who he was and what his intent was in the interview and they hired the dun anyway.
That’s on Dolan not Phil bruh!! He did what a true hustler always does. He saw the weaknesses of emotional people and took advantage of it.
The dun walked in with 13 rings in his pocket (11 as a coach and 2 as a player) and decided that he could use those to get “his” money out of Dolan’s pockets. And guess what Playa? It worked.
Can you be mad at boy that didn’t end up workin’ out if you hired him after he walked into the interview with flip flops and sweat socks on with a G-string and suspenders with no pants? He told you he was a complete fool in the interview but you hired him anyway. That’s not on him that’s on you.
Phil was lookin’ for a sucka and found him. He asked for $12 million per year for 3 years and got it. Then when he knew the deal was about to end he talked Dolan into a 2 year extension, started talkin’ crazy on purpose like some typ of stark ravin’ maniac about tradin’ Portzingas to get fired with an additional $24 million that he didn’t have to even work part-time for.
The dun made a clean $60 million in 3 years workin’ part-time!! When he only made $11 million total workin’ full-time coachin’ the Bulls to championships. Straight up hustla!!!
Y’all can be mad at Phil all you want but he’s my role model bruh! Stop me when I start lyin!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
