why not, mike k. was thinking about leaving duke for the lakers after coaching college only for such a long time...and i think for the right amount of money, you never know, he might take it. many college coaches have made an attempt to coach in the nba after having long, illustrious careers at the college level. but yeah, i havent heard any rumor that hes even remotely interested in coaching in the nba. it could be a feel good story though, since he was isiah's old coach at indiana, and i remember isiah defended bob knight when others were getting on him, saying "i hope he never changes". so there definetely seems to be mutual respect between the two.
basically, all im saying, is that basketball, like any other sport, is supposed to be entertainment for fans. bob knight would provide much more entertainment, and develop much more interest in the knicks than herb williams would. theres no denying that. people watch wrestling on tv because its entertainment. imagine if the characters were very bland and never did anything interesting, would people still watch wrestling, even if they were very good "technical wrestlers"? if for nothing else, the knicks should do it from a business point of view. also, hes supposedly a very good coach, and does seem to be able to instill some fear in some young players. for example, maybe he could push tim thomas and help him achieve his maximum potential by really getting on him.
