Okay, so at the moment they are saying that Phil Jackson is “parting ways” with the Knicks, rather than being fired.  But we all know that if Phil hadn’t agreed to step down, he would have been given the boot anyway, especially after he was torched by Knicks fans and the media when he announced his intentions to trade Kristaps Porzingis.

Many of those happy Knicks fans even took to social media to post their thoughts on Phil Jackson’s departure. Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter:
