Windhorst: “Knicks Not A Good Job” [Mike & Mike]
The New York Knicks recently fired head coach Derek Fisher. Kurt Rambis now takes over a team that is engulfed in a major losing streak that is struggling to play together. Could Rambis be the long term fit for the Knicks and help turn the team around?
On Mike and Mike this morning, ESPN NBA analyst Brian Windhorst joined the show to explain the coaching situation surrounding the Knicks. What Windhorst said was kind of expected for Knicks fans.
"Let me tell you about the modern NBA. In the modern NBA, the Knicks job is not a good job," Windhorst said. "The Timberwolves are the place to be. A young squad with Carl-Anthony Towns is the best fit for a guy like [Tom] Thibodeau."
This is not great news to Knicks fans, however, it was expected. Phil Jackson is most likely going to stick with Kurt Rambis. Jackson is most likely going to stay within his coaching protege's like Brian Shaw or even a Luke Walton who played for him. Should this job become even more wide open, Thibodeau could be an option, but would he really turn down the young and talented Timberwolves for the Knicks?
