Jackson claims that he turned down the MSG Network broadcasting role over a week ago.
Jackson is not welcome on the Knicks' charter plane, so he will not be calling games for MSG Network.
"Despite what was written even about some talent changes at ESPN, the league does not have a say there."
"There are people who are happy and there are people who are disappointed, and you're colleagues with them."
Jackson looks likely to get some MSG work, but he probably won't be joined by Van Gundy.
"Watching both Jax and JVG, in a combo or singularly, reunite with their former ESPN partner Mike Breen, would not only be great TV but tremendous theater as well."
“I wish Doc nothing but the best."
"It’s going to be a little weird, for sure. I felt like Mark and Jeff and Mike is just such an iconic team."
"I see a plethora of people getting opportunities... but not my man Mark Jackson."
Dan Le Batard confessed that when it comes to broadcasters, the radio personality isn't moved unless you're notably, "truly awful."
"It’s something we’ll all treasure, but we just wish it was a little bit longer."
The longtime ESPN analyst released a statement after his departure from ESPN was revealed weeks after a vicious cycle of layoffs.
"Mark Jackson told me he was let go by ESPN."
"While ESPN made these moves on their own, a byproduct of them is that it will likely make the NBA commissioner Adam Silver and league executives happy."
"I can go home and sleep peacefully."
"Mark's being kind to some of those fans. They were, some of those fans were clowns at the game."
