Charles Barkley responded to ex-Knick Charles Oakley, who questioned Barkley's toughness in a tweet on Wednesday night. "Charles Oakley doesn't like me, which is no big deal," Barkley said on TNT, per an accounting in the New York Post. "I don't like him or dislike him; I don't think about him. He's not important enough for me to think about. … He don't like me. I have no idea why."

It's unclear at this point if the Knicks will have interest in Frank Vogel, whose contract has not been renewed by the Pacers. Worth noting here: Vogel worked as an advance scout for Jackson and the Lakers in 2006. Jackson has said he'd "probably" limit his coaching interviews to people he knows. Theoretically, Vogel fits this description.

New York teams both win big

The Mets shut out the Braves 8-0 while the Yankees blanked the Orioles 7-0 on Wednesday -- the second time that both New York teams won by shutout and scored at least 7 runs in the same day, per Elias Sports Bureau. The only other instance was Oct. 5, 1986.

Phil Jackson has tweeted photos from Sioux Falls, Iowa and Nebraska in the last two days. You don't need me to tell you that Jackson is on vacation at the moment. The interesting thing here is that league sources say that some involved in the Knicks' coaching search have been informed that Phil is away at the moment, meaning the search is on hold. This could be Phil's way of distancing himself from certain candidates, or he could legitimately be taking a break from the coaching search. Either way, it's clear that the Zen Master marches to the beat of his own drum.
