Ex-Knicks coach Derek Fisher: I wouldn’t have taken job if I knew running triangle was a requirement

“I do believe that part of our struggle in New York was, 1) I didn’t find a way to communicate effectively that would allow for him to understand my vision and where I saw the team and where I saw us going. But also for me to understand his concerns and what he wanted to continue to see from me or things that were important to (Jackson),” Fisher said. “And so had he said, ‘Fish, you have to run the triangle, there’s no way around it, if you’re not going to do that it’s going to be an issue and maybe we need to go in a different direction. … Those weren’t conversations we had. So our communication wasn’t effective that allowed us both to go into the situation knowing this is what it’s going to be.”
