Phil Jackson Finally Fired By The Knicks

Deadass?!? Yes. Deadass.

ESPN is reporting that the New York Knicks have finally had enough of Phil Jackson’s poor performance and shady shenanigans, the team will “part ways” with Jackson today.

Stephen A. Smith is somewhere poppin’ a bottle.

Reporter Ramona Shelburne broke the news that Jackson will no longer be part of the Knicks management effective immediately.

Phil has spent much of the last year trying to figure out how to embarass Carmelo Anthony out of New York, or waive the no-trade clause in his contract. Considering that Melo is busy trying to win back the affection of his estranged wife, Lala, leaving NY probably wasn’t gonna happen.

Jackson has been collecting $12 million a year from the Knicks and doesn’t have much success to show for it.

We know at least one Knicks fan who is thrilled that Phil is gone, @RealLifeKaz. Flip the page to see his reaction to the dream coming true.
