New York Teams

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who is close with Phil Jackson, was asked about Jackson's tenure in New York. "I felt bad for the way things ended," Kerr said at Warriors practice at St. John's University today. "I think Phil did some good things here. Drafting Porzingis and hiring Jeff Hornacek. I think Ntilikina looks like a good player. It feels like they're on a good path right now. It's a hard league, man. Things really have to fall (in your favor), you have to do a good job. But you also have to get some luck. Phil knows that better than anybody. You can be really lucky and inherit Michael Jordan and you can also be unlucky and things don't go your way. It's all part of it. We're all going to have our moments in this league - ups and downs. Phil had so much success as a coach. I don't know, maybe he was due for the down part of it."

Time for Jets to focus on draft

After a surprising 3-2 start, the Jets have dropped four of their last five and FPI projects them to have less than a 1 percent chance of making the playoffs. But landing a top-10 pick is considerably more likely to happen for New York.

Time for G-Men to focus on the draft

They've been able to pull out a couple of wins, but the Giants did themselves no favor by getting off to an 0-5 start this season. ESPN's FPI gives them pretty high odds to land a top-five pick in this year's draft.

"He's been fighting it two, three days now. he just didn't have it tonight. He was fine with it. He actually said, ‘I'm not helping the team now.' Frank's a smart player. He realized he didn't have enough energy. He sacrificed."
