LAPD investigating complaint against Rose

The Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed it continues to investigate a complaint filed against New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Phil Jackson didn't seem bothered by Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf's assertion that Joakim Noah is no longer a top player. "I do see that he is getting (older), things are going to fall off a little bit for him but I don't think that is going to keep him from being a competitor," Jackson said.

Phil Jackson knows he took on a lot of risk by acquiring players with injury histories this summer. His motivation was simple: to build a winning team. "In our situation (it) is definitely worth the risk. We have had two seasons that have not been successful and we needed to move forward and win."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek is pretty optimistic about the future health of his club. "First of all, I don't think we're going to have injuries. I don't think we're ever going to talk about it," he said Friday. Derrick Rose's knee issues have been well documented. But neither he nor any other Knick will enter the season on minutes restrictions, GM Steve Mills said.

Maybe the best line from Phil Jackson's press conference: asked to assess his presidency, Jackson says, "We've been successful in getting it to a position where we can operate as a basketball team. That's been our first goal. And to eat some dung in the process, we had to do that and live with it."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Phil Jackson was asked what would constitute a successful season for the Knicks: "Championship, those are everybody's goals. That's not our expectation. We're not saying we're going to do that, but that would be a successful season."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek doesn't want Carmelo Anthony to feel like he has to ‘do everything' for the Knicks this season. The coach wants to lighten the scoring burden on Anthony in 2016-17. Both he and Phil Jackson would also like to see Anthony run the floor more often this season to create easy baskets.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Horancek said the Knicks will "open it up" in their early offense & settle into the triangle offense in half-court sets. The triangle has been derided by fans and some media over the past two seasons as the Knicks struggled. Said Hornacek: "It's just a way to space the floor."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Phil Jackson said he'd like to keep realistic expectations for the season but believes the only thing that will keep NYK from success this year is injuries, which is reasonable. Derrick Rose has played in just 40% of his games over the past 5 seasons. Joakim Noah played in 29 games last year.
