    Clyde & The Pearl in another thread mentioned Bill Laimbeer
    So I did some research

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I like what he said about his job was to win games

    +Pros.

    Laimbeer is a defensive coach just like he was a player
    Laimbeer was part of a team that use to shut Jordan down with Defense
    Laimbeer took a team full of talent in the WNBA that was underachieving to the championship twice (sounds familiar right)
    Laimbeer is an assistant coach with the timberwolves and helped make Kevin Love the best PF in the game.
    He has been a successful Head coach before (won 3 championships in the WNBA)
    He might be able to do wonders with all the Bigs currently on the Knicks
    its F*cking Bill Laimbeer, half the coaches in the league a few GM's and 1 owner (Jordan) are probably scarred mentally from playing against this guy.

    -Cons
    He is an assistant to the timberwolves (but hey Adelman is there too so...)
    He knows Zeke, in fact they won rings together (however everyone at MSG knows Zeke)
    He doesn't baby stars so the Knicks stars may be in for a culture shock
    He is not an X & O guy but he has the ability to draw plays up during timeouts

    I mentioned this in another thread yesterday...nobody gave it any play.
    I proposed he could bring back Oak and Mase with him to the staff. At least if we got in a bench-clearing scrap we'd be good to go.

    FWIW - a friend of mine is a huge Magic fan, says Ewing is pretty inept and useless as a coach and that we "want no part of him".

    if some of these coaches yall really care about then dont recommend them because they will come to the Knicks and leave with more ulcers and grey hairs then rings, better off nominating someone whod you like to see get puppeted around. man I still wish to this day in 2004 Mike Fratello came here instead of Lenny Wilkins

    No offense, but how do you judge how adept or inept a bench coach is unless you have access to practice? I mean, do we REALLY have any idea what Phil Weber brings to the table? Just sayin'

    Because Dwight Howard hasn't really improved his play much since Patrick came in.

    So the fact that Howard can't hit a turn-around baseline jumper is Ewing's fault? Dwight is the best center in the game regardless of the fact he just can't do much more than dunk. Ewing can't MAKE him practice, or want to hit J's...that's on him.

    Not to mention that Ewing told Dwight not to come to New York....

    Ewing was never the smartest Basketball player. Guys who relied on talent rarely make good coaches. A smart role player usually understands the game a whole lot better.
