During yesterday’s awesomely fantastic, game-of-the-year-so-far Game 1 between the Suns and Spurs, former Knick Mark “YOU’RE BETTA THEN THAT” Jackson was asked for his thoughts on New York’s coaching vacancy.
Jackson responded, “As far as history, the New York Knicks are one of the most storied franchises in all of sports. That certainly is a job that is very intriguing.” Fellow commentator Jeff Van Gundy is all for it.
“He’s the right guy at the right time for the New York Knicks,” said Van Gundy, who also happens to be the last Knicks coach to post a winning record.
Like noted failure Isiah Thomas, Jackson is a former point guard who will seek his first coaching job from Donnie Walsh, the man tasked with making the Knicks in to an actual basketball team.
Hopefully, for Knicks fans, Jackson won’t be the anti-King Midas that Thomas is. There are only so many things that can be ruined before someone starts an investigation.
