Phil Jackson has been very outspoken of late. The Knicks chairman has been firing on three-point teams, defining odd terms for the New York Times and, now, throwing shade at the world’s greatest player.
In an extensive interview with Bleacher Report, the former Bulls coach talked about all things basketball.
The most interesting part came when Jackson took shots at the way today’s game is being played, in particular LeBron James.
I watch LeBron James, for example. He might [travel] every other time he catches the basketball if he’s off the ball. He catches the ball, moves both his feet. You see it happen all the time. There’s no structure, there’s no discipline, there’s no ‘How do we play this game’ type of attitude. And it goes all the way through the game. To the point where now guys don’t screen — they push guys off with their hands.
