VIDEO: Phil Jackson receives standing ovation at MSG

By Royce Young | NBA writer

It's not the first time Phil Jackson has been cheered in Madison Square Garden, but it might be the loudest time.

During Wednesday's game against the Pacers, following a video on the jumbotron, Jackson was introduced to Knicks fans and he received a raucous standing ovation.

Seeing as he's being billed as the savior of the franchise, that ovation was part hope, and part desperation. It's up to Jackson to fix this. And if he doesn't, that standing ovation will quickly turn to something else.
