Herbert Greenebaum 5pts Michael Jordan. madskills 5pts The Knicks are now said to be interested in Fred Hoiberg. nyny 5pts like it or not my money is on BYRON SCOTT as the next Knick coach ...has the Laker connection and coaching experience... J.k. Jung-Bae 5pts Kim Jong Un Mickey Jennifer Wind 5pts Bill Cartwright. knows Jackson and has connections to Knicks. amarmelo 5pts Can someone tell me what system MIAMI SAN ANTONIO and DALLAS plays? Seth Plaut 5pts I think we should look at these names:Derek FisherTyronn LueFred HoibergKevin OllieThey are all young coaches, who can be molded by Phil, and would be willingto learn/have knowledge of the triangle system. amarmelo 5pts Hey Phil Jacka$$son wake up and smell the coffee.... How bout bringing in a coach that really want to be here... and get his 4th/5th year extension base on winning.Side note: Did Phil really think he had autonomy to sign anyone to whatever Salary he wanted without getting approval beforehand from Owner? Phil should have known the max Salary to offer Kerr before they even met. therefore allowing this process to facilitate faster and not being drawn out over 3 weeks.This fiasco is making the KNICKS look so incompetent in the supposedly new Phil Jackson Competent Basketball Era.Inquiring minds want to know:Why Phil couldn't convince Kerr to take less years for the good of team? JCFromCNJ 5pts How about Jim Cleamons?! Phil's sidekick forever and a actual coach and a former Knick. Can't beat those credentials. Seth Plaut 5pts How about Tyronn Lue? He played under the triangle with Jackson, and has done a good just as an assistant under Doc Rivers in LA. I know he is going to get a look. JCFromCNJ 5pts LOL!!! Harris was jilted at the MSG altar. I never liked the fact that this guy was anointed a coaching savant to begin with, just because he played in PJ's triangle. There are REAL coaches out, why are we hell bent to give it to a neophyte. Speaking of neophyte, let's give the team to Clyde, he's a stupendous talking head, with a propensity for big words. So, even if the don't play well, their vocabulary will be better. knicksgirl35 5pts I think Derek Fisher would make a great coach. I hope Phil feels the same way. M&M; Consultants 5pts Who yo heard Kerr agent and he confirmed Frank Isola is a liar and hates Dolan. He stated Kerr took the warriors job since its closer to his family and Dolan was not involved and confirmed dealing with Phil was good and Phil has a well laid out plan. He was just on Mike and Mike MeloStat301 5pts What is Lamar Odom up to???:"It was actually Khloé who invited Lamar to the club because she knew the E! cameras were going to be there," a source close to Odom tells Us exclusively.The reality star and Montana, who was at the club as a special guest, were joined by Kim Kardashian and friend Jonathan Cheban."She totally set him up and he is livid," the source says, adding, "she wanted it to look like he was stalking her on camera."The Knicks player did know though that the "Ain't Worried About Nothin" rapper would be there. "He knew French was going to be there," the source continues, "but Khloe asked him to come and he went. He feels like an idiot for trusting her."https://celebrity.yahoo.com/news/khloe-kardashian-invited-lamar-odom-club-set-him-003500442-us-weekly.htmlSMH..... zebeto 5pts couldnt the Knicks offer Mark Jackson a 1 year contract (try out sort of ) , since it looks like not many NBA front offices will be going hard at him . ?? KnickelusKnickleby 5pts If Melo stays is determined where he base his Hat Company lol KnickelusKnickleby 5pts i screen shotted Paul Pierce face after Ray hit those free throws , selling it on flatbush avenue KnickelusKnickleby 5pts Phil Jackson should fvck around and hire an international Coach and completely mess people heads upnot only will it be the 1st it would be a whole new scheme and plan something we need BiggieTKB 5pts Anyone looking at this objectively could see why Kerr would choose Golden State.proximity to home, perceived as a better roster, Melo a question mark, NY Culture Shock State of Mind, lack of control and influence in NY.. Some here gave proclamations like Steve Kerr or Bust!! Claiming 100% certainty that Phil Jackson would get his man.. Well Phil has his man -- PHIL. Im not mad at Kerr taking the logical job in Golden State. There are better candidates out there and hopefully this will force Phil to expand his search and bring in some fresh names.X- dont be upset.. you can still watch your favorite coach on SportsCenter. KnickelusKnickleby 5pts The Nets another Team that Spitefully likes to get in our way ..i don't know what Dolan did to these other Owners or Cities but we're always used as Leverage...this is what i would do any interest in any coach or player we should approach and ask without an offer..then when other teams come sniffing we pull back ..when coach or player ask why we say we like to be the only offer on the table that would leave the mystery of what the initial offer will be thats when the other team makes an offer and then we counter it...it's time to start using other teams as Leverage KnickelusKnickleby 5pts Nets happy this Kerr story is sweeping their playoff elimination under the rug lol..thats what my post this am is dedicated to " The BK NETS " zebeto 5pts Hoiberg names is gonna pop up soon . M&M; Consultants 5pts This has nothing to do with Dolan. Kerr was using the knicks to get more money from Golden State. Phil made the right choice by not paying a person 25 million with no coaching experience. He was not the only person Phil was talking and there are other coaches he has been dealing with. Don't believe everything in the media. amarmelo 5pts @Scott Berger-Felder I agree... im just trying to figure out why people here keep saying MJ coaches ISO ball... I see nobody took the bait. MeloStat301 5pts @amarmelo Sure...Miami= "Pace & Space"Spurs= "Motion Offense"Mavs= "Push Offense"...Mixed in with sets that Carlisle likes to use. Seth Plaut 5pts @kingofny Will you please let go of the pipe dream, it is not happening, nor should it. amarmelo 5pts @Seth Plaut I think those names sucks KnickelusKnickleby 5pts @kingofny SAS will praise him for not coming here because he wanted no parts of him on The Knicks in the 1st place amarmelo 5pts @kingofny for sure!!! Seth Plaut 5pts @JCFromCNJ .....................HORRIBLE head coach. madskills 5pts @Seth Plaut I think Derek Fisher may get a look also. JCFromCNJ 5pts @knicksgirl35 He might, but we have absolutely nothing to base that on. 1harris1 5pts @MeloStat301 He hasn't figured out yet that this woman is nothing but trouble?And this is one of the "high IQ" guys on our team. LOL KnickelusKnickleby 5pts @OLDKNICK i loved Ray Allen putting his old pals away once again lol ...you can't script that well enough amarmelo 5pts @MeloStat301 And which one of these offense is Mark Jackson similar to? Seth Plaut 5pts @amarmelo @Seth Plaut And your reasoning for that is why? JCFromCNJ 5pts @Seth Plaut @JCFromCNJ A gazillion years ago, he may have learned something since then, and he will have Phil in his ear.Basically everybody is expecting the next coach to just be an avatar for Phil anyway. KnickelusKnickleby 5pts @madskills @Seth Plaut Never hire a coach who played in the NBA in your Tenure who you constantly cooked or played garbage minutes Tyronn Lue seriously ? now Derek Fisher might actually be a good pick up he cooked a lot of Teams knicksgirl35 5pts Thibs runs his players until they can hardly breathe just like Woody. I don't want another stubborn coach and I hope Phil gives DF an offer he can't refuse.Kenny Smith might be good also. madskills 5pts @sir_manolo @knicksgirl35 The Bulls would want compensation for Thibs probably in the form of a draft pick. I like Thibs but not enough to get rid of more draft picks to get him. M&M; Consultants 5pts @thatsagoodpoint @M&M; Consultants . Dude i'm telling you first hand. Dolan has step back he is leaving everything up to Phil. Melo was not the high on Kerr. Phil has been speaking with other Coaches as well as Kerr madskills 5pts @pezhao @BiggieTKB I personally don't believe Golden State is the better coaching opportunity in the long run. Right now the Warriors have the better roster but that doesn't change the fact that they are stuck out West where the better teams are at the moment. At this point I can't even think of ways the Warriors could improve outside of a new coaching scheme (hence the Steve Kerr move). Their cap situation isn't that good and they have plenty of guys that will be looking to get paid eventually; Clay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, Dramond Green. Even Step Curry himself will be up for a new deal before you know it. They no longer have high draft picks because they aren't a terrible team anymore so they would have to get "lucky" in the draft. zebeto 5pts @thatsagoodpoint @zebeto...young maleable coach that from the looks of it phil l,likes ....we will see ......... amarmelo 5pts @Sandro Guedes @kingofny @Seth Plaut Jackson did have the 3rd ranked offense in the league. Don't know how you get to 3rd rank with out playing team basketball... that sounds ridicules Seth Plaut 5pts @kingofny @Seth Plaut Makes FAR more sense than Mark Jackson, who would not even accept hiring a lead assistant.... amarmelo 5pts @Seth Plaut Why does a coach has to have Phil interference? If Phil really wanna interfere then he should come coach and problem is solved.Why do you want a patsy here coaching is the better question Seth Plaut 5pts @amarmelo @Seth Plaut How do they fit here exactly? Please enlighten me, because none of them are willing to have Phil interfering. amarmelo 5pts @Seth Plaut easily there are better coaches out there. M JacksonJ VanGundyL Hollins zebeto 5pts @thatsagoodpoint @zebeto iread an article a while ago and its stated hoiberg and phil had met before and phil was kinda fond of hoiberg .
