Evan Turner, a guy who’s done nothing in the NBA, makes a funny regarding Phil Jackson’s rumored trade pursuit of Kristaps Porzingis.
With the NBA Draft upcoming this Thursday, the trades and trade rumors are flying around like crazy. Kristaps Porzingis’s name has joined the latest rumors on players that can be on the go. (That’s right, the entirety of the five boroughs just gasped for air, Brooklyn included.)
Evan Turner of the Portland Trailblazers took notice and delivered a hilarious question on Twitter regarding the Porzingis trade rumors:
Question: if you were in Phil Jackson's shoes and Ms. Buss said that she would get back w/ u if u trade Porzingas to the lakers, would u?

Fans certainly loved his humor here and over 200 people chimed in on the question:
Ms Buss still looking good 👀. Peace out KP ✌🏼 https://t.co/TcQqOYqknW

Perhaps there is some logic here with Turner question, so allow me to explain. Back in December when it was announced that Jeanie Buss and Phil Jackson ended their engagement, that’s when the Knicks season started going down in the dumps.
And it must have been a hard break-up for Jackson because he simply just disappeared. The Knicks were falling apart and he never would talk to the media. Maybe the pain of losing Ms. Buss caused him to check out and caused him to suck at his job.
He definitively was more bitter, especially with his treatment with Carmelo Anthony. He simply became more blunt about moving on from him.

So perhaps getting back with Ms. Buss will turn his frowns upside down. And Let’s be honest, this move is something many fans feel isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
How about it, Phil? Do you have a response to Turner’s question?
