    Default Phil Jackson to Coach the Knicks????

    "I can tell you he was open to going to the Knicks in 2005, then the Laker job opened up," Buss said in February before Jackson made what may be his last Garden appearance as coach.
    "The Knicks job would bring him full circle and I wouldn't stop him. I am in New York several days every month for business. That being said, the Knicks have a very good coach and are doing very well. So it shouldn't matter."
    Speculation on Jackson's future is in full gear after the Lakers ended their reign in despicable fashion: a four-game sweep in Dallas culminated by Sunday's 122-86 Game 4 massacre.

    What do you guys think if we get Phil Jack. in 2012, Do you think we do a good job in the Triangle? I mean Melo is probably as good as Kobe in the Triangle from an offensive stand point and if we have Cp3 you have to figure he's the best Pg out there for Phil Jack's system.

    Phil Jackson retired from basketball. I guess you've missed it.

    He's "retiring" from the the Lakers because he realizes their rain is over asstard. It's the same thing he did with Chicago. He might take the year off, but i'll be damned if he's not back in the summer of 2012.

    Are you sure he would be the right man for the job? You're having way too much confidence on a guy who's probably never watched a basketball game in his life and would do just as good of a job coaching the Knicks as Lady Gaga would.

    Does this guy even look like someone you would want leading Amar'e and Melo towards a title run?

    That's the worst attempt of a windup I've ever seen bro


    I think Jackson will be back, either this summer or next summer. I absolutely can't imagine him leaving basketball after a sweep. I'd say he'll coach for another 2-3 years and then retire.

    I'd love to get him. After all he's won 11 rings so he definitely knows his business. Having said that, nobody could win a championship with our current roster...we need CP3 or another great point guard, plus a legit center and a rebounder who's coming off the bench. A SG wouldn't hurt either.

    I love the irony of you calling someone an asstard and using the word rain instead of reign in the same sentence.

    Some of the basketball knowledge on this forum is good, but I mostly stick around because the posts are usually pretty hilarious.

    In the triangle you don't even really need a great pg tbh.

    could you imagine this team running the triangle offense
    now just imagine

    amare in gasols role

    melo in kobes role

    billups in fishers role

    shawn williams in odoms role

    and fields in artests role

    if you know basketball and you understand how to win games then you realize why im posting this

    dantoni is only effective with a pg who is capable of keep his dribble alive hitting the three pnt at 40 percent and running the pick and role to perferction, with out that defenses can sit back and allow the knicks to freeze offense until they turn the ball over

    if we ran the triangle the amount of isolation and mid range buckets available to melo and amare would be incredible.

    not a possiblity i know

    but definitely worth debating.

    your thoughts

    Listen to Bill Simmons' latest podcast with Mike Lucpica and Marc Stein. Phil Jackson is still close friends with all of his former Knicks' teamates and we could of had Him in 05-06 but the Lakers offer was much better.

    He also would do this to honor his coach and mentor Red Holzman
