Horny, Rambis, and Fisher are the last three dumpster fires that graced NY as head coaches. Not saying Fizdale is a bad a coach, I think he's just fine....but this team has not picked a good leader in a long time. And I may be in the minority on this one, but I think his ability to develop others is running a little strong on this board, but I'm guessing because the Knicks are so young....so it's wise to be hopeful. However, his ass got ran out of Memphis by Gasol. If he was really good with players, and his guys had his back....that should have not of been the ending for him in Memphis.
I'm with you on how many on here are already talking about Fiz as a great coach and developer even though he hasn't proven to be great at either yet, good but not great at either but this is a new Knicks front office with S.Mills and S.Perry and Dolan staying out of the way, so i can actually see the Knicks becoming an attractive destination for coaches and players which started with the addition of KP and now with adding Frank, K.Knox and hopefully M.Robinson with KP is making it look like the Knicks are finally doing things the right way. I don't think we're at that point that multiple top players will start looking our way but if Fiz can have the players mentioned looking good along with some of the other players and nothing old Knicks like happens next year and we also have another good draft then i do see the Knicks and Madison Square Garden back to being an attractive destination for players and coaches.
