OT: Knickerbocker talk

Mods, feel free to throw this in another thread if there's a proper place for it... anyways...

I just saw on ESPN that the Knicks offered Mike D'Antoni 6M$ to coach the team... what do you think? I know Mark Jackson is a hot rumor, and I also saw that we'd be interviewing Avery Johnson as well. Any preference from the Knicks fans?

the cost to get him will be so much cheaper...right now the move needs to be to make this team respectable.

Why would the knicks want D'Antoni.....he doesn't teach defense..he only teaches offense and offense is something the knicks won't have for a while.

My guess would be defense. Jackson was a solid player in his day, and though he has no experience, I'm thinking he'd harp on that aspect of the game - more so than D'Antoni. I wouldn't be upset with D'Antoni, but as mentioned above, maybe a big name isn't the way to go right now.

Jackson.

D'Antoni is a good coach, but not only is 6 million just an insane contract, the guy is not a good defensive coach in my opinion...if we want someone for offense, we had it with Isiah lol. Isiah never had his guys play defense at all..D'Antoni's guys try but if he couldn't get the Suns to play defense, how is he going to get the Knicks to?

Jackson to me represents a new start. New York guy, he knows that you win with D..he's a fresh new attitude and personality for a team that needs to be completely gutted.

I don't want any part of Johnson after the way the Mavs basically came out and said that they hate playing for him.

Yeah, the Knicks need a guy who preaches defense first, and then they need to get rid of guys like Curry and Randolph who don't do the defense thing.

D'Antoni had two terrible seasons as a head coach before the Suns got Nash.

He runs a run and gun style offense. No defense whatsoever, which is opposite of what the Knicks need.

I would love to see them get D'Antoni, but they shouldn't, they have too many offense-first players that have been playing that way with no success at all. Mark Jackson would be intriguing, but since I have about as much coaching experience as him right now, I don't think that is a good idea. Avery Johnson would be a good choice as well, but he could barely handle the media in Dallas, I don't think that throwing him into the fire in NYC would be a good idea.

The best choice in my opinion would be Jeff Van Gundy, who got screwed out of a job here by the lovely Dolans. (I think I just puked in my mouth trying to be nice to them) I think he would be the right man for the job here, but there is no way he would get it, because the Moron who owns our team and the Knicks has too much pride. (thats better)

But since those 3 seem to be the only people the Knicks are loooking at...I would choose Avery, because he seems to have the best defensive mind out there, though I would not object to seeing Mark Jackson.

I've lived in San Antonio for a long time so I'm a spurs fan, but I've seen Avery Johnson and what he can do for a team-- if you actually want to win with the Knicks, that's the guy to go to. He took the softest team in the league and made them play defense, it's not really his fault that Josh Howard, Dirk Nowitzki, and Jason Terry are playoff choke artists

Jeff Van Gundy sucks.

He sucked as a Knicks coach, he sucked as a Rockets coach.

STAN Van Gundy seems miles better.

To say Van Gundy sucked as a Knicks coach is completely ridiculous.

Chris Mullen. It will never happen but Mullen belongs in NY. I really would like him to coach SJU instead of that ****** Roberts.

I agree, but that's also because I hate the Knicks.
