    I want Patrick Ewing to get a head coaching job with the Knicks.

    He worked with Dwight Howard the same year the Magic made the Finals, and he really helped improve Yao Ming's game, before he got hurt.

    D'Antoni hasn't done s#!t for the Knicks, so it's time to bring someone who cares about helping the Knicks win and not about a 24 million dollar pay check.

    Other people I'd like to see coach the Knicks: Lenny Wilkins(the Knicks were above .500 when he coached the team), Scott Skiles(he got Eddy Curry to average over a block per game one year. Enuff said), Jeff Van Gundy(has experience winning in New York).

    Skiles. Wilkins. Gundy. In that order.

    Get Ewing a premier assistant position.

    Putting him right in as head coach is a disaster waiting to happen. He's a knick legend, but he's just shown he can prolly be a real legit big man coach. Head coach of nyk with this roster....far cry.

    Plus, being a ny legend, it would be a nightmare if he had to get canned or demoted, and his rep tarnished, bc he couldn't fly as a hc.

    I always liked Wilkins, I wouldn't mind seeing him return.

    I haven't seen anything to make me think Ewing would be a good head coach of an entire team. Knicks legend? Yes. One of the best ever? Absolutely. But brilliant head coaching prospect? D12's offensive game has remained limited until he worked out with Hakeem. I don't know what else Ewing does besides work with D12 in Orlando. As a big man or even a defensive coach? Absolutely.

    Are we absolutely set on a big-name guy? Is there a Tom Thibodeau lurking somewhere?

    i think mark jackson would do a good job as coach inexperience will hurt him though, so my top choice is JVG and i still think herb would do a good job at the helm.

    i think if we can't find a good overall coach(defense, good plays) we need someone who can at least get the team to play to their strengths on offense and then hire an assistant for defense

    it's gonna have to be someone new and young because look at doug collins, he's horrible and most of the known coaches that are available have no new tactics. look @ the hornets. im sure theres a lot of new prospect coaches out there that deserve the opportunity more

    Jeff Van Gundy please...

    He still loves the Knicks and his Defensive scheme would work wonders with this team

    George Karl comes off contract this season, and while he seems to want to stay in Denver, the Knicks should at least offer to throw a bunch of cash at him.

    i think over paying coaches that have been good with other teams has really hurt us...maybe we should go after a guy who has a hunger for coaching and not the paycheck
