It was pretty clear at the end that things were not going well between Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks. Now that it’s over, we’re finding out just how bad it really was.

Jackson and the Knicks parted ways on Wednesday to the cheers of Knicks fans everywhere, but no one knew just how bad it had gotten to force James Dolan to fire the winningest coach in NBA history.

Jackson ending his tenure with the team has gotten quite a few post mortems, but one published Friday by the New York Daily News has some pretty stunning tidbits. For starters, Jackson “acted like a coach” and was even running team practices and pushing the triangle offense over head coach Jeff Hornacek.
