In a December interview with Today's Fastbreak that was published today, Phil Jackson mentioned that Derek Fisher wanted to push the pace on offense, in part, because the Knicks were struggling with the triangle. Fisher not running the offense the way Jackson and others saw fit was a source of consternation between coach and president last season. It probably wasn't the reason Fisher was ultimately fired, but it probably contributed to Jackson making the decision. That's worth remembering now as Jeff Hornacek looks to blend an up-tempo approach with the triangle offense.
