Spike Lee, Knicks Fans Rejoice After Phil Jackson, New York Part Ways

New York Knicks fans seemed pretty happy Wednesday morning.

The disastrous Phil Jackson era as Knicks team president is over after the coaching legend and New York agreed to part ways, with the ongoing Carmelo Anthony drama appearing to be a big reason why. Jackson made it clear he wanted Anthony anywhere but with the Knicks, but owner James Dolan apparently saw things differently.

Famous New York fan Spike Lee seemed pretty happy in an Instagram post around the time the Jackson news dropped.
