Who knew? After the new president of the Knicks watched the lottery-bound Lakers roll to a 127-96 win over New York on Tuesday night at Staples Center, Jackson told reporters his team’s performance was “awful.” The New York Daily News agreed, headlining its story on the Knicks’ embarrassing loss with Jackson’s own description: “Aw-Phil.” Bad as it was, the defeat provided a realistic look at the gigantic job Jackson faces.

Jackson is out in Philly — just as Mark Sanchez was on his way into town. Unable to find a taker on the trade market for Jackson, the Eagles released him, ending the Pro Bowl wide receiver’s six-year stint with the team.
