There’s some basketball star power in Manhattan today.
Knicks president and legendary NBA head coach Phil Jackson was here today, along with new Knicks coach and former NBA player Derek Fisher.
Pictures of Fisher and Jackson were tweeted by K-State athletics. They were in town to speak with former K-State head coach Tex Winter.
