New York New York

What's up world I have been watching the playoffs this weekend but it has been bittersweet. My hometown Knicks aren't playing and the way that stuff is going we won't be in the playoffs for a while. Coaching in the NBA is crazy I see coach's leave team after team but nobody questions their loyalty and committment. As they talk about the candidates for the Knicks head coaching job they bring up Jeff Van Gundy. He is a quitter. He quit on the Knicks when he was last here so I don't know why they wpild be even considering him for another job. It is my personal opinion that either Patrick Ewing or Mark Jackson should be given the job. Ewing has been an assistant coach for quite some time since he retired but he has worked with two of the most dominant big men in the league, Yao Ming and Dwight Howard. After working with Patrick Ewing both Yao and Dwight have put up numbers better than previous years. It goes to show that he can devevlop players especially big men. He would be the teacher that Eddie Curry needs to make him an All Star. Mark Jackson doesn't have any experience but he is eager and has the desire to make his hometown team a winner. But the way things are going they won't give them the job but they'll give it to a high priced name who won't win. What can you expect from a Presid3nt of Basketball who hasn't won anything ever in Donnie Walsh
