No (Phil jackson)
No (some other coach)
Phil Jackson for 3 years means at least 3 ECF and at least a finals appearance and a potential Championship
So if he brings a legit assistant then I'm down
If we can strike gold and acquire Phil Jackson, then im all for it
If we cant, i wouldn't mind giving Woodson more time. Only because he's had such little time to work with our players and it's not completely fair to judge him based off this series with half the roaster injured.
I never thought Jax would come here. But I've changed my mind.
This would actually have real legacy (and pride) implications for him.
Unlike the Lakeshow....despite us being talented, nobody actually expects us to win and be legit. We're still cast in the shadows of the Dark Ages of the NYK empire.
Jackson coming, and making a winner out of us, would cement his legacy firmly above pretty much any coach in NBA history, IMHO. And there would be no counter-arguments anymore about just winning with well-oiled, HOF juggernauts who were expected to win (a la Cashman winning chips with the Yanks, but to a lesser degree).
I just don't know if anybody would want to work with Dolan. Idk.....Unless you needed the $ jump (which Jax doesnt).
I don't think we get Phil Jackson to be honest.
I think Dolan will go after another big name though, and it wouldn't shock me if John Calipari was standing on our sidelines next year.

GREATEST KNICK EVER!!!!
Call me crazy, but I think it's Jackson or Woodson. When Dolan and MDA beefed and split, the centerpiece was Melo -- and Woodson, a natural, copacetic fit with Melo, became coach as result. Melo has also played extremely well since Woodson took over. Dolan wants, more than anything, for Melo to play extremely well.
*Dolan stuck his paws into the deal for Melo and cemented his rep further as a horrible owner to work under.
*Dolan parted ways with Walsh, a pseudo-NYK savior who most liked, again, with circumstances surrounding Melo.
*Dolan then parted ways with another high-profile coach, again, with circumstances directly surrounding Melo.
Dolan is a type of dude who can damage your reputation for good .... oh yeah he pays u well but who wants all the goddam headaches and sh1t that comes with dealing with Dolan...
Dolan destroys his front office continuously and lets the media and dumbasses have all the say in matters concerning the future of the team.
He gives no fuok about winning, the Knicks team name by itself earns enough dough to keep him happy...
Imagine a team like Spurs letting Popovich go for some dumb reasons.
If Pops was here he'd be fired by Dolan somehow..
PJ aka the Zen Master understands this ish.
i don't think Phil Jackson would change this team that much, you will still have the same problems and Woody never had Lin healthy for a while
Davis is a huge disappointment and washed up

I too, like what Woody's done during the regular season, annnnnd I dont see a better headcoach available this offseason. I understand "interim" Woody's decision to give the helm of the offense to Melo & JR to run in a losing postseason series. I dont like it, but I do understand it.
Knicks fans need to get their mind off of Phil Jackson & Sloan, they are executive material headcoach who will not accept a 3rd tier G.M. Grunwald pick of litter FA he signed from the bottom of the market to fill the roster.
