Whatever debate there was about Phil Jackson’s capacity to institute a culture shift is over. He did it and could have possibly foreseen.
J.R. Smith has seen the light.
“Trying to think about the rest of the group over myself or my scoring is something that I never really had to do before,” Smith told’s Ohm Youngmisuk. “I’ve always been in a situation to dent, [now I’m] able to take my time and let the game come and let my teammates succeed over myself, I believe that’s the ultimate win.”
As the year progresses Private transformations in the preseason have a means of reversing themselves, but for the time being, it seems Jackson has performed magic.
Getting Smith to buy into the equal-opportunity tenets of the triangle offense is enormous, and everything after that–figuring out how to coax defense out of a frontcourt rotation involving Andrea Bargnani and Amar’e Stoudemire, convincing James Dolan to keep kazoos out of this locker room–must be cake.
The Knicks are far removed from a 54-win year in 2012-13. Jackson’s influence should help them get closer to this total than the 37 wins they accumulated last year.
Don’t expect a championship chase–maybe not until 2015 is sloughed off in by the contracts on the books and Carmelo Anthony gets some help.
