Now you may have heard Derrick Rose being traded recently. Thanks to Phil Jackson’s crafty thinking, (no pun intended) he was also able to negotiate Justin Holiday. People forget Derrick Rose is a #1 draft pick, a former Most Valuable Player, and a battle-tested playoff point guard.
As a Knicks fan, I’m excited about this change. New York Knicks fans were drooling to get back into to the playoffs and a move like this will definitely make them contenders. Some Knicks fans are on the fence on this move by Phil. Rose has been injury prone his last four years in the league. He’s had a total of eight-teen which isn’t much when you look at how many Allen Iverson played, though but it does pose some concerns.
Personally, I never doubt anyone’s heart or dedication to their craft. I feel people are treating him like he’s washed. Derrick Rose isn’t Tracy McGrady stop talking down on him. I will say this Phil definitely knew what he was doing. There are a handful of impact free agents this summer. Agents like Joakim Noah, Al Horford, and Kevin Durant.

The Knicks already have Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis (who had an amazing rookie season) to build from. If their bench can produce a consistent 20-30 points they should do well in the eastern conference.
Will this move work on recruiting big names to the garden? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
