Celtics President says Phil Jackson brings "a little more fuel for the rivalry" with New York

Celtics President Rich Gotham recently sat down with the Huffington Post, and among the topics of conversation was Phil Jackson's new job with the Knicks.  Said Gotham:

"It'll just give us one more reason to not like the Knicks. In Boston we like to have good reasons to not like the New York teams, particularly the Knicks, if you're the Celtics. Phil, he's the guy who is the challenger to Red Auerbach's record for most titles won as a coach, so bring it on. Give us a little more fuel for the rivalry. I don't want to say anything about the people who are there now, but having a guy like Phil around, it's all good fun for us, because he's one of our nemeses."

Jackson has 11 titles as a head coach to Auerbach's 9, but will still never be Red's equal.
