That pic of Kerr is a perfect snapshot of what his natural honest reaction would be to anyone seriously asking him if he has any regrets about choosing GS over the Knicks.

of course there are no regrets from Kerr, what kind of a dumb article is that? He's got more money, he's winning, he's got young stars, he may win a championship soon. People here need to wake up and stop treating working with Phil Jackson like it's some benefit in and of itself.

Seems like a good deal to me. He's only got $6.2 million guaranteed which means cutting him in the second half of the deal probably wouldn't hurt our cap too badly.  For a 28 year old OL who seems to be at his peak, I'm happy to ride him out for another 2-3 years at a reasonable price.


Now if we can back out of this Schofield deal I'll actually be really happy with how things are going. (Schwartz, Beason, Jennings).

Geoff Schwartz is 6' 6" 340, a beast of a man, and a really good run blocker who is still in his prime. Nobody should complain too much about this signing since the Giants have had a habit of giving out only 1 year contracts lately. Hopefully this big dude will be a big part of our O line for the next few years along with Justin Pugh...and HOPEFULLY Taylor Lewan too. May the Schwartz be with you!

Not sure how you are connecting him picking 2 sharpshooting young superstars and a solid supporting cast that was already molded by Mark Jackson as some kind of indictment of Phil Jackson.

@blackwood1 I agree.  That's why with him I've been saying we need to wait for the playoffs to see what kind of coach Kerr really is.  He inherited a team that was already terrific.  The playoffs is all that really matters.

@Pressure Beatz well yeah Kerr inherited a good team but also has helped make it better and moreover has not messy it  up.    We have seen how guys can impose their will thinking it was wisdom on a team and utterly fail.  (see everything that Phil has done so far) 


Of course Kerr has no regrets. He's making more money than he would've  here and owns the best record in the NBA.  Will be visiting NY again to coach the all-star game.    


Meanwhile Phil and Fish and the rest of the Knicks and fans are languishing in hell.


There are approximately 80 museums in NYC.  The should open the MSG offices for tours and call it the "Museum of Poor NBA Management". 


Why exactly would Kerr have regrets??
