    Phil won't let the CAA sway his decision making

    Phil Jackson says CAA no longer holds major sway over Knicks

    CAA — the Creative Artists Agency, which represents NBA stars such as Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, Tony Parker, Chris Bosh, Chris Paul and a host of others — has long had special sway over the Knicks organization.

    If you listen to the scuttlebutt around the league, Andrea Bargnani is a Knick because he is a CAA/Leon Rose client just like ‘Melo (why else would you take on that contract?). Why did the Knicks give a roster spot to Chris Smith, J.R.’s brother? CAA. That’s just the tip of the rumor iceberg.

    But the days of CAA holding the power are gone — Phil Jackson has the power now. Jackson himself addressed this directly speaking with Chris Herring of the Wall Street Journal.
    Definitely a step in the right direction. These guys hold so much power over the Knicks organization it's ridiculous!

    I'm actually more scared of James Dolan than I am CAA. But this is good news none-the-less.

    New sheriff in town.

    J.R. Smith: "They were pretty much scoring at will. Especially my guy. I don't know what the hell I was doing on defense."

    Raymond Felton : "The play was give the ball to Melo."

    The CAA has obviously been bullying Dolans decision making over the last few years. Phil becoming our new President is the best thing since getting Ewing in my opinion.

    You only wish it was that bad. CAA is actually worse.

    Just google them and start reading about CAA, basketball and the Knicks. It's like borderline mafia kind of stuff.

    Agreed, and I hope Phil throws all their **** on the curb of 8th ave in June......

    Dolan was stupid for trusting them but I'm glad it seems he came to his senses. Phil won't be intimidated by them.

    Phil isn't stupid to get rid of CAA who has ties to multiple superstars including Melo. When your going all in for next years FA you don't piss off the agent.
