Derek Fisher hit all the right notes in his introductory press conference as head coach — he talked about returning the Knicks to glory, he talked about changing the culture, and he did it all with an air of confidence.
He looked like a leader of men. You could see that in the clip above.
Fisher also addressed his lack of head coaching experience straight on:
“There will be a lot of talk about my inexperience as a head coach, and that is obviously factually true,” Fisher said. “I have never been a head coach in the NBA or in college or in high school — but I am experienced. Basketball is a game that I am experienced in. Playing, understanding, leading in, guiding in, helping another group achieve the greatest gift in the world as a professional athlete and that is being a champion. That I have experience in. And that’s the experience I plan on sharing with these players, sharing with this organization.”
We’ll see if he can do the job, but he nailed the presser.
