New York Knicks: Phil Jackson let’s us know what Saturdays are for (Video)

New York Knicks President Phil Jackson has been spotted. This time it was by Barstool Sports, but the Zen Master was a little confused.

Phil Jackson does everything he can to avoid the New York Media, but he pops up in the strangest of places. First, it was a bus ride (presumably through New York City) and now it’s on the Twitter account for Barstool Sports.

Jackson was taken aback when asked the trademark Barstool question, “What are Saturdays for?”

The correct answer, “For the boys” was lost on the 71-year-old Jackson. His response of “The Sabbath” with a smile was classic Phil awkwardness. Jackson is known for his cryptic messages that make others uncomfortable.

We don’t know where that video was shot and we don’t know where and when we’ll see Phil again, but it’s nice to hear his voice isn’t it? Maybe next time it will be for more than 10 seconds.
