If someone who has watched the Knicks more than I have could let me know how the triangle offense is working out, that would be cool. My impression is that it’s not working well at all right now, but keep in mind that I think Phil Jackson is super overrated and Derek Fisher is not head coach material.
Has this offense even been proven to work under normal circumstances (i.e. not having Kobe or Jordan)? JR Smith’s comments about not understanding the system, while unsurprising given his reputation, reflect the concept’s lack of utility.
Iman Shumpert has put together two straight decent games; apparently this newfangled trigonal malarkey isn’t affecting his ability to sometimes make jumpers. I’d say this has bought him about a month or so of good will before Knicks fans turn on him again.
