Larry Brown didn't work the first time, why should it work now?
I'm ok with every defensive minded coach who isn't too old. Should be in his 50s maximum and have some experience. All I want is DEFENSE!
How fun would it be to have Clyde Frazier....
dont worry Isiah will be back and he will appoint his son as head coach.
I like the Bill Lambeer idea. He needs an NBA shot and this could be good. A true defensive minded hard knocking type (at least that's how I remember him in the Pistons days). As much as I love Herb something must have happened to put a cap on his ceiling as he has never been really considered by the FO to take the job on a perm. basis.
How many really think if (oh we definitely do need to) and when we do need to hire a new coach it will be an untested NBA guy or a somewhat big name. Don't get me wrong I wish we could bring up some new up and comer but this is NY. And look whose running our show still. Honestly, I think when the time comes we will try to overpay a more known name guy than actually looking for a coach that we need.
What about this one:
Willis Reed as HC,
Mark Jackson, Anthony Mason and Charlie Ward as assistant coaches?
Jackson and Ward have excellent basketball knowledge, the right attitude and some experience in coaching. Mase could teach our young big men so much about playing as a PF/C.
And Willis would be good as interim HC, because of his standing in NY and the intangibles he brings to the game.
Before answering this question ask yourselves:
Does this guy REALLY want to work for James Dolan?
Does he REALLY want the NY spotlight?
If the answer to either is "No." (like I bet it is for 90% of "candidates") then that guy should be off the list.
Larry Brown's stubborn ass is the last coach we need here.
He didn't work out the first time and I don't think he would work well with Amar'e.
Herb has 9 years as the Knicks assistant headcoach under 5 headcoaches.
Either he stays sitting on the pot, or he gets off.
The Knicks dont need another BIG-NAME headcoach!
The Knicks previous losing decade has alot to do with each season the
Knicks are looking for their starting-5 lineup in the preseason games.
Plus the big change of roster each season.
This is what another BIG-Name coach will bring.
Whats wrong with changing half your roster each season?
nothing if u have a starting 6 players.
Hiring Patrick Ewing, or Bill Lambeer, or Mike Woodson as an assistant
headcoach to Herb, would be a great thing in the defensive department.
