PBT Extra: Phil Jackson has a full plate in New York City


Tuesday the Knicks will make official what everybody already knows — Phil Jackson is the new head of basketball operations in New York.

On the latest edition of PBT Extra Kay Adams and I talk about what this could mean for Phil’s already Hall of Fame resume. Then we move on to the thing that has to be on the top of his agenda… no, not just keeping James Dolan at bay, we’re talking Carmelo Anthony.

Finally we talk about the upcoming coaching search in New York (once the season ends). Steve Kerr anyone?

Kevin Durant with huge dunk on visiting Fenerbahce Ulker

Welcome to America, Fenerbahce Ulker.

The Turkish powerhouse was in America playing some exhibition games this preseason, and they got a first-hand reminder that Kevin Durant is back. KD had 13 points in the Thunder’s easy 111-81 win.

Not to be outdone, Russell Westbrook got in on the act.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
