I’m Just Saying…..
I know it has been over two months since Phil Jackson was hired by the Knicks. At first I wasn’t going to say anything about it since I am not a fan of Phil Jackson. But why keep my mouth shut when I have a blog to voice my displeasure. I really hope Jackson fails in his attempts to rebuild the Knicks. I personally think he can’t do it. Not in 2 years, not in 5 years and certainly not in 10 years. Why, you ask? If he doesn’t surround himself with the best General Manager, the Best Scouting Director and the Best Scouts in the NBA he can’t do it. He has proven that as a coach. What!!!!
I do not consider him the greatest NBA coach of all-time. I don’t consider him even in the top five coaches, come to think of it I won’t hire him if he was the only coach available I would coach my own team thank you.
It’s one thing to win titles when you have mega-stars on your team as he had with the Bulls in Jordan, and Lakers with Magic, Kobe, and Shaq. Its another thing to win a title without a megastar, which Jackson has not done. When Jordan retired for two years did Jackson win a title? No. In fact he always had either Magic, Kobe or Shaq when he coached the Lakers.
The New York Giants needed a back-up quarterback to Eli Manning and all they could come up with is Josh Freeman?? Really?? Really?? Really?? Oh, oh I’m starting to sound like the WWE’s The Miz. He is a prototypical QB at 6’6” and 240 pound plus he is only 26. But Josh Freeman?? What has he done for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?? Let’s see he was 24-35 with 80 TD’s and 66 int’s and was sacked 110 times. Really?? Really?? He did have a QB rating of 78.8. Ummm. I will say the QB he is backing up, Eli Manning, has a QB rating of 81.2 (last year was his worst season as a quarterback).
Can’t believe that, if I researched this correctly, this is the first time that either the Knicks, Lakers or Celtics have not been in the NBA Playoffs. At least one of those teams had been in the playoffs before this season. Amazing streak. Maybe it’s the changing of the guard. Clippers, Thunder, Warriors…Oh and the Spurs, the team that just keeps on winning.
Let me have the opportunity to gloat a little….
Jacksonville is hosting the “send off game” to the World Cup as the United States plays Nigeria in a friendly game at Everbank Field. I will be attending as I purchased my tickets on the first day they were made available to Jacksonville Jaguars season ticket holders. Got my tickets a day and a half before anyone else was allowed to purchase them. Yes! Yes! Yes!
The Jaguars owner Shad Khan, owns the Premier League team Fulham and they will be visiting Jacksonville on July 27th. I will be going to that game too even though Fulham will be relegated to the Champions League. Fulham will be playing DC United.
We are also getting an NASL team the Jacksonville Armada which will begin play in 2015.
I just want to end tonight’s blog by saying, “I thought you had the right to say what the fuck you want in the privacy of your home without the risk of being recorded??”
