Knicks’ Dolan to Set Sights on Phil Jackson?
Now with (Mike) D’Antoni gone and Mike Woodson serving as interim coach, (Phil) Jackson can feel free to attend any Knicks games. The next step is expected to be owner James Dolan courting Jackson again after the season and bringing on Philsanity.
Dolan must see if he can bring the Zen Master out of retirement and finally make him a Knicks coach after two failed attempts. Six years ago, they failed to entice Jackson as he chose to return to the Lakers because he didn’t want to leave Buss in Los Angeles In 1999, they stuck with Jeff Van Gundy after an awkward attempt at courting Jackson.
(Carmelo) Anthony, an isolation player, can play Jackson’s triangle probably the best of the current cast, and Dolan desperately wants to figure out a way to get the most out of the superstar, for whom he gutted the team to acquire in a February 2011 trade.
