“There’s just too much work that has to be done with that team. It’s a little bit of a clumsy team.”
“They don’t fit together well. Stoudemire doesn’t fit together well with Carmelo. Stoudemire’s a really good player. But he’s got to play in a certain system and a way. Carmelo has to be a better passer. And the ball can’t stop every time it hits his hands. They need to have someone come in that can kind of blend that group together.”
So either Phil Jackson really was never interested in coaching the Knicks, or he’s just offended that they never even bothered pick up the phone. Either way, I can personally say Mike Woodson will do great things in New York. Knicks fans have a lot to look forward to, including a full year of consistency, desire, and effort.
