On Tuesday, the world gets to welcome the legendary Phil Jackson back to the NBA as the New York Knicks will hold a press conference to announce Jackson as their new vice president of basketball operations, signaling a hopeful step in the right direction for the frustrated organization.
Since the rumors began swirling a few weeks ago about the possible return, the speculation has been all over the place as to how this will ultimately end, and what some of Jackson’s moves will be.
Obviously, we know that Mike Woodson will not be back as head coach next season, so all eyes will be on where Jackson looks to fill that void, and with whom.
Then, there’s the question of whether or not he can keep Carmelo Anthony in the Big Apple.
Here’s how you can watch the announcement of Jackson’s hiring on Tuesday:
