The Knicks are the laughingstock of the NBA.
But, apparently, Phil Jackson doesn't think everyone is laughing hard enough.
In his quest for more LOLs, the Knicks president is shopping his young, cheap franchise player Kristaps Porzingis.
In an interview yesterday, Jackson said one of the reasons he was open to shipping Porzingis out is because he skipped his exit meeting.
“I don’t think I’ve ever had a player over 25 years of coaching, maybe 30, not come to an exit meeting,” Jackson said. “So it’s not happened to me, I know it happens to other people and other players.”

Jackson's claim Porzingis was the first player to have done this to him is dubious. It was reported in 2003 that Shaq missed his exit meeting with Jackson and the Lakers.
This all got the attention of Joel Embiid, who's a famous internet troll as well as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers. He had a message for Jackson and Porzingis.

Embiid and Porzingis would make a mighty fine 4-5 combo.
