How’s that New York Knicks gig working out for ya, Phil Jackson?
The legendary basketball mind is finding out just how difficult it is to turn around one of the NBA’s worst franchises, an endeavor which saw its latest disappointment Sunday. The Knicks hosted LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers and were promptly blown out by 18 points.
The ugly showing led Jackson — the Knicks’ president — to vent on Twitter about his team’s lackluster performance.
Each NBA game is an opportunity for players to show their "best" nature and please the basketball gods...and those who know what "It"takes.—

The Knicks are on another losing streak, with Sunday’s defeat running their latest skid to seven games. New York currently holds a 10-45 record, and the club’s .182 winning percentage is 40 percentage points lower than the NBA’s second-worst team.
With all of that in mind, you have to think Jackson has consumed his share of Tums, too, this season.
