By Dolan keeping Jackson, it sends a message to Carmelo that he must make a decision.
He'll also be in L.A., but he also took the time out to say he really he enjoyed playing here even with the losses, which of course surprises us because he's been on some very successful teams.
It was the starters' fault: "The starters never had the consistency or chemistry to win close games". We had a young coach. He said there was "a lot of stuff that's not clear" to players and that it was "hard to play like that". Still, Jackson hopes Anthony cares enough about his legacy to want to get the heck out of here. Following another unsuccessful campaign, drastic changes are expected to happen within the New York Knicks and it could involve both veteran stars.
"I just said that you haven't won here".
As for Jackson, he painted a picture that's rosier than reality, saying the Knicks are building a foundation and that fans see progress. If that is the case, he might as well put everyone out of their misery and just coach. The team's front office has proven to be dysfunctional creating an insurmountable barrier to reach success. Jackson basically neutered Hornacek, suggesting the Knicks coach failed in incorporating his up-tempo offense with the triangle and that he should defer to assistant coach Kurt Rambis when teaching the antiquated offense.

A few seconds later when she realised that she was back on cameras, she gave out a reaction that can only be termed priceless. It's a slip-up nearly every newsreader in the world has committed, but rarely costs the TV presenter their on-air job.
The nearly annual rebuilding of the Knicks began Thursday, when Anthony and Jackson sat down for their exit meeting. "And I think [that] has to stop and that will stop", he said. Perhaps the best was the 2012-13 season where they made it to the second round but were eliminated by the Indiana Pacers.
"Holding the ball is not a criticism".
It could be a long summer of back-and-forth between the two, but Friday's press conference set the tone that the Knicks will try their damnedest to finally break up with Anthony this offseason.
The Knicks, Melo, and Jackson have some time to think about their options, seeing how they are not in the playoffs (no shocker there). If you lose in the first round, well, it didn't work out, we gotta change some people on our team.
