TALKIN' SPORTS 3/13/14 LIVE 7:30-8:ish PST
1.) It looks like Phil Jackson is going to back to the NBA in the front office of the New York Knicks.
He was drafted by the Knicks in ’67 second round & played with New York to ’78.
Mainly as a backup he ended his playing career with the New Jersey Nets in 1980.
He then coached in the Continental Basketball Association until ’87 when he was hired as an associate coach by Doug Collins of the Bulls.
He became head coach in ’89 & around that time he met Tex Winter who came up with the Triangle offense. He then improved on it. Now we can see if he can change the Knicks to a contender in 3-4 years, I think it will take at least that long just to get out of all of the bad deals and lack of cap space from previous GM’s. Can just wait & see.
2.) In Pro football the day before yesterday started free agent signing day and there were many players switching teams. Also, some big names that were cut like, Ware in Dallas. But one trade that I noticed was Jr. Martin from the Dolphins to the 49ers. Martin is the same one who accused some players from Miami of bullying. Now he goes to San Francisco and the head coach that he played for in college and hopefully he can move on and away from what happened this year.
3.) Well, Denver is trying to up their defense. They signed CB Aqib Talib & DeMarcus Ware, just in the first two days maybe there defense can make a change.
