Phil Jackson Fell Asleep During A Top Draft Prospect's Workout

At least a sleeping Phil Jackson can't actively sabotage the Knicks.

I have no idea what's going on with the New York Knicks, and quite frankly, I don't think Phil Jackson does either. Between trading for Derrick Rose, betting the farm on a washed Joakim Noah and passive-aggressively sparring with Carmelo Anthony, you'd think that all of the above—combined with his deluded and failed insistence on playing the triangle—would be enough to bring him back down to earth or at least earn him the axe.

Nah.

Because now, he's trying to trade Kristaps Porzingis, the only redeemable feature of an otherwise pitiful team, probably because Porzingis—a generational talent who's only 21 years old!— hurt his feelings by skipping out on an exit interview.

"We have to do what's good for our club," Jackson said, per ESPN. Trading Porzingis is objectively not good for your club, my man.

But that's not all. He's also straight up falling asleep instead of, uhhh, doing his job.

If Jackson is prepared to ship off Porzingis, you'd think he'd have some interest in evaluating prospects in order to rebuild.

But once again—nah.

If you're a fan of the New York Knicks, I send my deepest and most sincere condolences. Jackson might genuinely be a saboteur working for another team.
