Phil Jackson assures Knicks fans that Santa is bringing them a better team

Thursday December 25th, 2014

Entering Christmas Day, the New York Knicks are just 5-25. But fear not, Knicks fans: Santa Claus is here to save your franchise. 

If that sounds preposterous, Knick fans can take comfort in the fact that team president Phil Jackson is banking on the big man coming through. Jackson tweeted on Christmas Eve that Santa was bringing a better 2015 than 2014 for Knicks fans. 

Keep believing, Knicks faithful. If Santa can't deliver a good team, we hear the Easter Bunny has an incredible understanding of the triangle offense.
