PBT Extra: Phil Jackson has a full plate in New York City

Mar 17, 2014, 8:29 PM EST

Tuesday the Knicks will make official what everybody already knows — Phil Jackson is the new head of basketball operations in New York.

On the latest edition of PBT Extra Kay Adams and I talk about what this could mean for Phil’s already Hall of Fame resume. Then we move on to the thing that has to be on the top of his agenda… no, not just keeping James Dolan at bay, we’re talking Carmelo Anthony.

Finally we talk about the upcoming coaching search in New York (once the season ends). Steve Kerr anyone?

    They say most players ‘are who they are’ when they come into the league.

    So are owners… Dolan & Phil will part ways within 2 years.

    History is the most accurate predictor of future performance…..

      that not exactly true. They could get a team like Philly to eat some of their bad contracts so they can bring in an impact FA if they give them a pick or….nevermind

      seriously though, I think 2 years is fair. If Jackson doesn’t pull a miracle by the end of 2015-2016, Dolan will start to mettle, and Jackson won’t want any part of it

        let me clarify when i say it’s “fair”, i mean it’s a fair assessment, not that I think it’s fair to expect Jackson (or anybody) to fix that mess that is the Knicks in 2 off-seasons

    Steve Kerr’s resume consists of pairing Dantoni and Shaquille O’Neal. “Brilliant”

    Kurt Rambis is the obvious front runner.

    Until Brian Shaw’s available that is

    If Phil Jackson’s gone in two years it’s because the Lakers finally managed to remove their head from, well you know where

    Full plate? We’re talking all-you-can-eat at The Sizzler.

    @thomaskouns,
    “history is the most accurate indicator of future performance. ”
    So we should anticipate more stupid comments like this from you in the future…

      Why? That was an accurate statement: history is the most accurate indicator of future performance.

      Agree with the statement. Only stupid comment here is from Scottheis82

    If he can get a ship to NY…he’ll be the greatest Coach/Exec of all time
