The Phoenix Suns might not make the playoffs this year. That's OK. They'll be just fine whether they make it or not, and they would do well to follow the way of the Houston Rockets.
Many see Phil Jackson and James Dolan as adversaries vying for the soul of the Knicks. But if this relationship is going to work, it has to be more Inception than Godzilla.

Normally a 37-year
Playoffs or not, the Suns are going to make some noise this offseason.
We're coming down the stretch of the regular season, so Bo Churney and I decided to talk about the playoff races in each conference -- spoiler, the East is bad -- as well as individual awards
Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson take a trip to the New Orleans Aquarium to support a great cause.
The New York Knicks are weird and the Phil Jackson thing is too, but for Knicks' fans sake, I hope everything works out.
The Dallas Mavericks make Dallas look like a Game of Thrones landscape.
No team in the NBA has a more athletic front-court than the L.A. Clippers, and Doc Rivers sure has taken advantage of that. While Blake Griffin continues to expand his game and propel himself into the MVP conversation, DeAndre Jordan sticks to his guns by being the backbone of the teams defense and letting everyone else do the hard work for him on the offensive end.
There are two things and really two things only to know about the New York Knicks' now-apparently-imminent hiring of Phil Jackson to head up basketball operations. These two things have both been written about and argued for at length but where the narrative up to now errs is that it poses them as conflicting viewpoints on the hire when, in reality, they're both true.
Yes, this will probably fail. And yes, it's still the right move.
