David Griffin proved to be the anti-Phil Jackson without having to spend a single day at the World’s Most Dysfunctional Arena.
Bravo to Griffin for not simply taking James Dolan’s money and going along with the MSG spin that the new general manager has full autonomy. No chance.
Griffin apparently was interested in the job because of the challenge of building a winner. In the end, he wasn’t up for the challenge of politics as usual at MSG.
Griffin could have pulled the same Zen mind games Jackson used on the Knicks. Relax, put your feet up, lose games and watch your bank account grow.
Kinda like that touching photo Jackson tweeted out late Saturday.
(Nice to know Jackson doesn’t have a care in the world after making a fortune off Dolan while making the Knicks an even bigger laughingstock league wide.)
The photo was the final slap in the face to Knicks fans who believed Jackson was a savior. Instead, the Zen Capitalist went 80-166 and was feuding with the Knicks’ two biggest stars, Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis, on his way out.
And now the Knicks won’t have Griffin to clean up Jackson’s mess.
Griffin is no longer
