NEW YORK: Phil Jackson vowed to revive the struggling New York Knicks as he was officially announced as their new president on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila), returning to the team where he started his glittering career. The 68-year-old Hall of Famer, who has won a record 13 NBA titles as a player and coach, said his aim was to bring a winning tradition back to New York. Jackson will be trying to recreate the magic he was part of with the Knicks in the 1970s. Jackson, who played for the Knicks from 1967 to 1978, has been put in charge of all basketball decisions. He won two titles as a player with the Knicks, helping them win their most recent NBA crown, in 1973.
