"If I know Phil [Jackson, Knicks team president], he just feels like [crap] right now," Rodman told reporters at a promotional event in Manhattan. "I think he just feels like, 'Wow, I thought I came here to do a great job and revitalize the city of New York.' He didn't expect this. "He didn't expect this. I saw him a couple of times on TV when I was in L.A., and I'm like, I know what you feel like, Phil. You came to be the savior and all of a sudden it's like, ugh. Then you went and got Derek Fisher. Really, is he coaching? Is Derek Fisher coaching? I don't get it. I don't know what's up with that team, man. You've got Carmelo and after that who else do you got? ESPN.com

"They're not running the triangle. Derek Fisher's not really coaching. I know Phil is trying to throw his input in the background, but who expected this from Phil? They expected him, we're going to give you $15 million a year for the next six years and this team is -- wow -- they might not even make the playoffs." ESPN.com

The Knicks are struggling as they learn Phil Jackson's triangle offense and Dennis Rodman, once a key piece of some of Jackson's championship teams, doesn't get it. "I learned that in probably 15 minutes when I was in Chicago," the former NBA bad boy/rebound machine said Tuesday morning at an appearance in Manhattan. "It's not that difficult. It's a triangle. "Everybody has an opportunity to touch the ball and shoot it. It seems like it goes back to Carmelo Anthony and then everything stops. What are you going to do?" New York Daily News

Dennis Rodman has vowed never to return to North Korea following his controversial visit in January. The former basketball star has struck up a friendship with the country's dictator Kim Jong-un and during his trip earlier this year he was caught on camera singing Happy Birthday to the North Korean leader. Rodman's trip sparked a wave of criticism and the sports star subsequently checked into rehab after returning to the US. He has now given an emotional interview in which he declares he will never return to North Korea. Rodman is seen with tears rolling down his face as he tells ESPN, "What makes me so damn bad? What makes me this bad, awful person? "I don't want people to look at me as the devil or evil person. If I put anyone in harm's way, I apologise, you know ... If you don't want me to go back there ever again, I won't go back." West Australian
