The Knicks have the worst record in the league at 10-45 and have lost seven straight games.
Jackson took over the Knicks last March, hired first-time coach Derek Fisher three months later and declared that the team would be in the playoffs. The Knicks then proceeded to lose 36 of their first 41 games, including a franchise record 16-game losing streak.
