With the news that Phil Jackson might become an official member of the New York Knicks front office next Tuesday, current Knicks head coach Mike Woodson might look to pitch the Zen Master to stay as the head man in NYC.
Check out the below quote from the New York Post’s Marc Berman where Woodson wants at least a sit-down meeting with Phil:
“I would want him to view me as a coach,’’ Woodson said. “If and when that time comes, I would just love the chance to sit with him and talk basketball. He’s a basketball guy, I’m a basketball guy. This is 30 years I’ve spent in this league, so that’s what we’ll do, but until that happens, my focus is strictly on trying to get this team in the playoffs. That’s it.’’
We will see, Mike, we will see…
