Before Phil Jackson was the president of the New York Knicks, he was a free-spirited player, and a new collection of photographs by the world-famous arena's official photographer shows off just how free Jackson was.

According to the New York Post, photographer George Kalinsky and his wife went through nearly 50 years worth of pictures taken at MSG to create a book titled "Great New York Moments," and the snapshot turning the most heads is one of Jackson in his birthday suit.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, the Kalinsky's are not selling the book and have only been sending it to close friends and do not appear to have plans to put it up for sale any time soon.
