I’ve been ignoring the chatter for the past few weeks. It seemed inconceivable Phil would even consider the headaches of running the Knicks front office. He’s accomplished so much. Both as a Player and a Coach with 11 NBA Titles. He’s based comfortably on the West Coast with gf Jeanie Buss. She’s part owner and the President of the Lakers. I can’t imagine the strained atmosphere in their bedroom before a Knicks / Lakers game.
Maybe he’s a glutton for punishment. But it looks like a done deal.
Any predictions on how well the Zen Master will do? Will he be able to keep hands off and let the new coach do his job? Will Phil have the magic touch for finding new players?
Most important question. Will the Knicks win a NBA championship within the next 3 or 4 seasons?
