Phil Jackson Says The Spurs Are Not A Dynasty

Phil Jackson is calling the shots for the Knicks as their new team president and it looks like he’s taking shots at an old Western Conference foe.

Jackson has been taking jabs at the San Antonio Spurs since 1999, when the then newly signed Lakers coach suggested that the Spurs championship should have an asterisk next to it because it occurred during a lockout shortened season.

On Wednesday, Jackson jabbed the Spurs again, saying they weren’t a dynasty after referencing their inability to defend any of their four championships.  Jackson was addressing the New York media while complimenting Tim Duncan for taking a salary cut on his most recent contract.

Tim Duncan making the salary he’s making after being part of a dynasty – not a dynasty, I wouldn’t call San Antonio a dynasty — a force, a great force. They haven’t been able to win consecutive championships but they’ve always been there. San Antonio has had a wonderful run through Tim’s tenure there as a player. He’s agreed to take a salary cut so other players can play with him so they can be this good. And that’s the beginning of team play.

So for those of you that are lost.

Phil Jackson ripped the Spurs, while trying to find an example for why Carmelo Anthony should take less money like Duncan did.  That’s so Zen like.
