Jax yaks about Knicks

The Knicks have played better of late, but ESPN/ABC analyst Mark Jackson warned Monday not to get too carried away with the play of some of their current players.

"I don't think that talent will be there when you look to revamp your roster in 2010," he said on a conference call promoting ESPN/ABC's Christmas quintupleheader.

"I think it's fool's gold when you look at bad teams and guys playing well. As Jeff [Van Gundy] and I have agreed and witnessed throughout the course of our years in the NBA, somebody has to score. Somebody has to get baskets.

"When you're on a bad team, you can say, 'I'm getting mine,' when it really doesn't matter. It's not winning basketball."
