Phil Jackson has often been the target of heated rants by ESPN firebrand Stephen A. Smith, with Thursday’s episode of “First Take” seeing Smith go at the New York Knicks president once again.
While discussing the rumors currently circulating about Jackson wanting to trade Knicks baller Kristaps Porzingis, Smith questioned Jackson’s judgment while dragging Lamar Odom’s name through the mud in the process.
“And by the way, his very first move as the executive was to sign Lamar Odom…who was on crack!” Smith screamed to chuckles from his co-hosts.
“Listen, I love Lamar Odom the person, and God bless him, we’re wishing nothing but the best, but metaphorically speaking, his first move as the executive of the New York Knicks was to sign Lamar Odom, who was on crack!”
