Will Phil Jackson Coach the Knicks in 2012?

On Sunday, coach Phil Jackson made it clear he had every intention of retiring following the Lakers' devastating playoff defeat to the Dallas Mavericks.

"In all my hopes and aspirations," he said, "this is the final game that I'll coach."

Geoffrey Mutai Runs Fastest Marathon Ever

Kenyan Geoffrey Mutai won the Boston Marathon on Monday, finishing in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 2 seconds, the fastest 26.2 miles in history.

But, alas, there's a catch: Even though Mutai beat the previous record by 57 seconds, because there was a strong tailwind on a downhill course, Mutai's time won't be recognized. In fact, 2011 Boston Marathon runner-up and fellow-Kenyan Moses Mosop also surpassed the world record, finishing only four seconds behind Mutai.

Watch the Blake Griffin Dunk That Didn’t Count[VIDEO]

Phoenix Suns' head coach Alvin Gentry labeled the dunk Los Angeles Clippers' rookie Blake Griffin threw down over Suns' center Marcin Gortat on Sunday as "impressive of a dunk as I have seen in the NBA in 23 years."

Unfortunately for Griffin, the dunk didn't count, since he was called for a charge.

After the jump, watch Griffin posterize Gortat. (Does it still count as posterization when you commit a foul on the play?) We've also included bonus videos of Griffin dunks that were actually worth two points.
