#1. Find a way to help this year's Knicks team make the playoffs.
The Knicks are not going to win a championship this year. Let us repeat: The Knicks are not going to win a championship this year. But they don't have a first-round draft pick in this year's NBA Draft, so there's absolutely no incentive for them to miss out on the playoffs and qualify for the NBA lottery. So Jackson needs to do something—anything!—to help this year's team make it to the postseason so that both fans and players will feel good about the Knicks heading into next season.
