    Ewings name is never mentioned as one of the coaching candidates so probably a million in one shot. I think maybe as a big man coach for KP and as an asst with the next head coach would be a great job for him. He probably would only leave Charlotte for a head coaches job though.

    If you've been reading what DFish has been saying about the triangle and Rambis criticism that DFish didn't practice it enough during training camp, you can see Rambis is going to be named the new head coach for the Knicks. PJ's thinking is going to be "I know the triangle can work, I won 11 titles with it. It just needs to be taught and implemented correctly, the best guy to do that is Kurt with me working behind the scenes with him". Get used to it people, Kurt Rambis head coach of the NY Knicks.

    Phil Jackson has the famous Alzheimer disease .. Phil won 11 championship with the triangle offense having veteran NBA Super-Star scorers mixed with veteran super-star defensive players .. Phil has yet to pass our 37 win season when we didnt have a GM or president.
    Rambis was a ex-player of Pat Riley doing what Kareem Abdul Jabbar told him what to do in the frontcourt to keep up with the transition speed of Magic Johnson. When Kareem retired Rambis became useless as a player. Rambis has been a BIG-JOKE as a headcoach in the NBA .. Ex-Laker Big-man Lonnie Divac has 10 times the skills, leadership, and player coaching experience than Rambis rolled up in one sneaker. Yet for some phenomenal power the NBA keep endorsing a BUM head coach Rambis to teams. SMFH

    The Knicks are in desperate need of a ex-player PG head coach Mark Jackson to tutor both guards in the backcourt to control the game by keeping the ball out of "SLOW ISO-Melo" hands 60% of each game.

    Thibs plus our youth and 2 lottery picks is how we get out of this mess.
    Mafra gets it IGHT again.

    Can't remember exactly how it works, but for example, both us and Boston are under the cap by a decent margin this offseason, so as long as Cleveland gives up Love's big contract to take Melo's big contract, it should overall be doable with the numbers. Not sure if other 3 team trade scenarios are as workable.

    Both teams over the cap, I think they have to be within the 125% rule. If one is under you don't have to match but there still are some stipulations for the team over the cap

    Not that he isn't a bad candidate but on the basis of playing with Steve Mills at Princeton is laughable

    If Carmelo supports Rambis having the interim tag removed he’s keeping that a secret. Carmelo has had ample opportunity to endorse Rambis but instead suggested a full blown coaching search. What does that tell you?

    For the second time in three days, Anthony said he’d like to have his voice heard this summer. For most players, that’s code for “hire the coach I want to play for.”

    A source close to Anthony insists that his preferred choice is Tom Thibodeau, a coach Jackson seems to have no interest in speaking to. Remember that the next time someone says or reports that Phil is just doing his due diligence. Yeah right.

    Maybe Carmelo would be fine with Mark Jackson, Scott Brooks, David Blatt or even Jeff Van Gundy. Either way, he wants input.

    There it is, Melo wants a say on the head-coach and he's not supporting Rambis, now it's up to you, Phil

    There's a youtube video out there that shows Tibs ran elements of the triangle offense in Chicago. I'm surprised no one is talking about this, but pieces of the offense could be retained under Tibs.

    Commitment may be the issue under the Knicks. Fisher didn't run anything close to the triangle and that seems to be the offense of choice. Love it or hate it you can't do it half assed. I would not be heartbroken if Rambis stayed on for another year. It wont matter ether way if we can't get better players.

    Is Melo scoring outside of Isolation plays? Seems like that can be stifling to the offense.

    The more I read the more I think PJ is going with Rambis, it's going to take someone really special to dislodge Rambis as the leading candidate for the next head coach.

    Rambis said Tuesday that management would hunt for players who fit the system. If Rambis is retained, he likely will change the coaching staff and remove the Oklahoma City influence of Brian Keefe, Joshua Longstaff and David Bliss, each brought in by Derek Fisher. That segment of the staff seemed to want to break away from a full-blown triangle, with Jackson hinting at that after firing Fisher.

    Rambis would retain former Lakers assistants Jim Cleamons and Rasheed Hazzard, the son of UCLA great Walt Hazzard. According to a source, Rambis would consider adding former Laker Rick Fox. Brian Shaw would also make sense as an associate head coach, but if Rambis sticks, Jackson could demand a defensive specialist added to the coaching staff.
    After the finale against the Pacers, Rambis, who finished 9-19 as the interim, said, “Whatever’s going to happen is going to happen. I’m not going to worry about it. I want to be the head coach here. But that’s a decision out of my hands.’’
    Rambis is riding the notion his presence allows his buddy Jackson to be more hands-on. Anthony admitted after Fisher got fired that Jackson “talked to more guys individually.’’
    Anthony also said Rambis emphasized more spirited scrimmages. Anthony wants Jackson to interview other candidates, but seems to be softening.
    “It was good to get those practices in,’’ Anthony said. “Guys wanted to compete. We were competing when we had Fish. It was a different type of competition in practice with Kurt. He really was like, ‘We’re going to practice.’ ’’

    There are ways to make this work like hiring Rambis as the lead ass't to run the triangle and hire Thibs as the HC and defensive coordinator. D'Antoni did it with him running the SSOL offense and Woody as the defensive coordinator.

    Phil just likes Rambis which is going to count as much as the coaching credentials in who he hires. Rambis doesn't deserve it based on his audition but I don't think PJ gives a damn just like he doesn't give a damn about critics of the triangle.
