    Default Potential Coaching Candidates

    Who would you want to bring in next year as the head and lead assistant coach. Besides Phil Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy since those will be the popular choices

    Mike Woodson is about to get a shot. Let's see how he does.

    I dont see Hubie or Larry Brown living too much longer...I'd say Walsh has the shortest life expectancy

    Phil Jackson with Brian Shaw to replace him in a few seasons maybe? I think the triangle could work wonders here. The knicks have 4 bigs with maybe 5 with K-Mart. Shump Shump and Baron as your Guards and toney and fields could work in that system as well. Then add in phil Jackson would have enough respect from players to tell thwm when they're messing up due to his ability to manage egos. Its the perfect match.

    I dunno. Do college coaches do well at making the jump from NCAA to NBA? Seems like there aren't a whole lot of NCAA turned NBA coaches who are that successful, but let's see who I've got in mind...

    How about Ron Adams? He's an assistant with the Bulls right now, was an assistant with the Thunder before he was with the Bulls, and has been around for a while...

    Or Andy Greer? Another Bulls' assistant, was one of JVG's assistants in Houston and one of Chaney's in NY

    Doug Collins still alive? (Oh wait, Philly.)

    Walter McCarty interested in rejoining? (Figure he and Herb Williams would work OK.)

    Of course we could jerk Pat Riley away from Miami.

    I've seen enough of former Knicks players that make a huge coching career, I'd say give Patrick Ewing a chance.

    Larry Brown is the best fit for this team. He holds everyone accountable on the defensive end, even his superstars. On the offensive end, he preaches ball movement and teamwork. He's going to require discipline from all his players though, and it can be a cause for tension in the locker room. It's unlikely he comes back to coach though.

    Oh, and I think Woodson was part of Larry Brown's championship coaching staff in Detroit when they won the chip.

    Red from KOL, he's been criticizing D'Antoni so much, it'S his opportunity to prove he's a better coach.

    Unless we could get Phil Jackson, it is time to give Ewing his shot.
