Phil Jackson tried to deflect the fact Fisher was forced to work his Triangle Offense saying Fisher was free to adjust the offense as he saw fit. Adjust tends to mean you have to start from a certain point. Derek Fisher was very adamant telling the media how much he isn’t doing Phil Jackson’s Triangle Offense and that he’s adding his own signature that makes it his own.


“I’m not trying to duplicate or carbon copy exactly what he did,” Fisher said. “The same way he didn’t do that to Tex Winter [a Chicago Bulls assistant under Jackson], the same way Tex didn’t do that to the coach and the folks that he developed it from and how he added the innovation and his own ideas. So it’s my job to do that now.”

This came after the media questioned Phil forcing the Triangle Offense onto Derek Fisher. Sure, Fisher get’s to work with around it but the point is that Phil is forcing personnel into a certain type of offense instead of installing an offense that works with your specific personnel. If Fisher is starting from a position that his team has to run a Triangle Offense then you are essentially forcing a certain offense onto him.
