The 2014-15 New York Knicks finished with the second worst record in the NBA — thanks in large part to a late season victory over the Washington Wizards which may well have cost them a shot at Jahlil Okafor in the 2015 Draft. Otherwise, they should’ve been the 30th best team in the league. It was the worst season in the franchise’s 70-year history, both on paper and on television (or in person, if you were unlucky enough to have actually paid money to attend a game). Sure, first year coach Derek Fisher managed to get a roster of nobodies to play hard despite how obvious it was that management was considering 2015 a lost year, but outside of that, there is very little silver lining for even the most oblivious optimists to cling to. They sucked.
Phil Jackson seems to agree with that sentiment, as he sounded off to ESPN’s Charley Rosen about the team who won only 20-percent of their games. As you’d expect, Jackson — the man who feels comfortable publically roasting NBA icons like Kobe Bryant — held nothing back in his post season player evaluations of the scrubs that lost 65 times between October and May.
Some guys got it worse than others, but everyone who wore a blue and orange jersey last season had at least some shade thrown their way. Our six favorite disses, below.
