According to a source of the New York Post, Owner James Dolan of the New York Knicks may have eyes on John Calipari to coach and run the front office. The rumor states that unless the New York Knicks make a run deep into the playoffs, the team may be looking at a change up top when next season rolls around.
Maybe I missed something but what has Calipari won? He didn’t win at UMass. He didn’t win in Memphis. He is currently the coach of the University of Kentucky and coached in the NBA from 1996 to 2000, first as head coach of the New Jersey Nets and then as an assistant for the Philadelphia 76ers. His Nets went 72-112.
I am not really sure why the Knicks are so interested in making him the front guy. Maybe the post has it all wrong but this one clearly has me shaking my head. I can’t sit here and say that I am 100% behind D’Antoni, simply because of his defensive philosophy, but if I had to chose between the two, D’Antoni’s resume is much more complete.
