Phil Jackson Was Reportedly Falling Asleep During Top Draft Pick’s Workout
Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks continue to be the laughing stock of the NBA. On Thursday afternoon, former NBA player and current ESPN analyst Jay Williams went on Outside The Lines and said that he was told by a draft pick expected to be selected in the top 15 of Thursday’s draft that New York Knicks president Phil Jackson was falling asleep during his workout.
“A top-15 draft pick told me the other day — because we were involved in this conversation about Phil Jackson and the Knicks — he said Phil Jackson was falling in and out of sleep during my workout,” Williams said “Yes. ‘Falling in and out of sleep at my workout.’ This is what this guy told me.”
The Knicks are picking at No. 8 tonight and could potentially trade Kristaps Porzingis for another top-four pick in what looks to be the organizations most important draft in a long time and here is Phil Jackson falling asleep during workouts. God the Knicks are a fucking mess.
