I am a neurotic, handwringing New Yorker and Phil Jackson is a Zen Master. He will continue to move forward on his mission to bring a championship to New York, with or without Melo and whatever the outcome, he probably won't lose any sleep.
Analysts have speculated that the seven-time NBA All-Star would either re-sign with the Knicks or become a member of the Chicago Bulls or Houston Rockets. However, as you're about to find out, the Dallas Mavericks are the best fit for 'Melo.
Even with his on-court play diminished due to age, OKC signed Fisher for the exact same reason KD admired him: because he set an example with his work ethic and was, as the saying goes, a great locker room guy -- always willing to mentor the next generation of players.

The New York Knicks' demise so early in the season at 2-4 has become so spectacular that it's hard to take your eyes off it. What has gone wrong?
