Isiah Thomas has interviewed several candidates, including Mr. Phil Jackson (he could be the star of the new Bachelor) and PJ Carelisimo. Flip Saunders is also on his wish list.

Who would fit in there the best?

I am going out on a string but I think it might be Flip Saunders because the Knicks have asked Minnesota if they could interview Saunders. Saunders is still with the Wolves somehow and that asks the question, "Why do they have to ask Minnesota if they want to interview Saunders?"

I se Flip ending up in Cleveland, I think that PJ Carlisimo is a better fit in New York. Where does Phil wind up? Back on the beach, he's still gonna be without a job.

This might answer that last question a little -

Report: Pursuit of Phil down to Lakers, Knicks



The Cleveland Cavaliers are out of the chase for the services of Phil Jackson, just days after having preliminary talks with the nine-time NBA champion coach, according to the New York Post.

I can't see Flip in Cleveland because he has been in the lague and he want a team where he thinks he can win. New York might not look good but with their payroll, the chemistry should ignite.

If I were an NBA coaching prospect (and I think I should be, lol!), I'd prefer Cleveland to New York for sure. The Cavs barely missed the playoffs, and they have LeBron, the most exciting player in the league, to boot. The Knicks have been mired in mediocrity for too many years now, and haven't really made any changes that show they want to get away from it.

I have to agree with you when you say Cleveland over New York also because New York has such a big payroll but they aren't getting anywhere. It is all about team chemistry and not about how much money you have. But it sure helps though!

MOney does help out in buying talent not chemistry, the Knicks i dunno what to say abotu the knicks, they have had great coaching and still nothing, its about time to give up on them.

The Knicks have to ask for permisson to interview Flip because he is technically still under contract with the wolves and they need permisson from the front office.

I got ya now. Well they have got permission from what I have heard. I know that Phil Jackson is on his way back to LA now so he is out of the picture. With the Knicks though, I think they have it now, they just need to make some key trades during the summer and work on chemistry, not talent, but chemistry. You need a mix of both in the NBA but the most important thing you need is the chemistry. New York just needs to make something work, and I think they will do it next season.

I just saw a rumour that they might be interestede in Laimbeer. Interesting, I think...




Bill Laimbeer isn't officially a candidate for the Knicks' coaching position, but Isiah Thomas' former Bad Boys teammate was expecting to be asked about it.

"I've always said I'd like to coach in the NBA ... I'm having fun doing what I'm doing now, though," said Laimbeer, who has a 53-39 record in his fourth season as coach of the Detroit Shock. "I'm not going to leave Detroit until my daughter graduates from high school. When she graduates from high school, we'll see what comes my way."

Does anyone think that Larry Brown might be interested in the job if his health is good enough?

No way that Larry Brown will take this job. There is too much to handle and his health is not extremely great. He needs to take it easy. He is a great coach and everything but I think his days as a coach should come to an end. He should retire when he is at his best. We don't want someone like Lenny Wilkens (one of the best coaches ever) again.

I think if the docs tell him that there's a chance, he'll be intruiged to give it a shot

Larry Brown is going in 2 different directions. The press says he going one way while he says he's nto goign anywhere. What is he actually going to do?

Larry will be back in Detroit, after losing to the Spurs, he wants another title.

Bill Lambeer will be the knicks coach, he met with 'Zeke again.
