Since Jackson became President of Basketball Operations for the Knicks, they have had a putrid record of 80-166. Jackson has made many decisions that have left pundits scratching their head — starting with trading away their defensive anchor Tyson Chandler for absolutely nothing, and ending with attempting to trade away the only good decision he ever made as a GM — Kristaps Porzingis. Needless to say Knicks fans and pundits alike were thrilled with the decision.

James Dolan has many tough decisions to make in the next few weeks; like who to hire as GM/President, and what to do with disgruntled All-Star forwards Carmelo Anthony and Porzingis? The journey to stability will be long for the Knicks, but they are heading in the right direction by letting Jackson walk.
