When Charley Rosen approached the podium to give the keynote address at the CUNYAC's awards luncheon on Thursday, he said he was not "there to defend" his friend and business partner, Phil Jackson. But that's exactly what he did. Over the next eight minutes, Rosen, 74, toed the Knicks company line to a hushed room full of student-athletes. "The triangle works. And Phil has more rings than he has fingers to prove it," said Rosen. "It's not about this year. It's about the future. Two years from now they'll (the Knicks) be in the conference finals." New York Daily News

"Phil needs the money?" Rosen said in between bites of cheese cake to the Daily News. "He's got more money than he can spend in five lifetimes. And if you see his lifestyle, he's not gaudy or anything like that. He lives in a $5½ million apartment (in Manhattan) but that's fitting given the money he's making." New York Daily News
