The Knicks Up Their Game With Mindfulness Training

On Sunday, Phil Jackson, president of the New York Knicks, announced that he has hired someone to put the team through mindfulness training this season.

This may not come as a surprise, since Jackson is known for his passion for Eastern philosophy. According to ESPN, he's earned the nickname "Zen Master" in the basketball community by instilling the principles of mindfulness, visualization, and other techniques associated with Eastern religions in his teams in Chicago and Los Angeles.

Jackson explained the reasoning behind this decision to ESPN:

Hopefully, if nothing else, the Knicks will find their centers in center court.

What do you think of Jackson's new policy? Think it'll help the players focus?
