Larranaga met with the Knicks last week.

Larranaga, 43, is a rising young coach, who has been with the Celtics for six seasons, the last four as Stevensí top assistant.

Larranaga is known for his player development

With rozier, brown, and even Tatum, our players have developed nicely. Will suck if he leaves

I think this is nothing more than a courtesy call. Knicks like high profile coaching hires. Jay will not be that.

I think he'd make a fine coach somewhere I just don't think it will be in NY and for his sake I hope it's not Dolan is probably a bottom 5 NBA owner.

Yeah I kind of don't wish the Knicks upon him. But obviously if he got the offer he couldn't refuse the opportunity.

Does anyone else feel like Jay Larranaga has invisible laser beams shooting out of his eyes at all times?

Well good luck to them but for the life of me I don't understand why they won't hire Mark Jackson, That seems to make the most sense to me. I'm sure he's loving his job at ESPN but Mark Jackson coaching the Knicks just makes sense to me.

Maybe after almost 20 years of futility, the Knicks have finally learned their lesson?  They continually have gone for big name coaches, big name executives, and quick fixes

They've promoted a culture change with their new regime, and maybe they're actually serious about it?

I personally think Mark Jackson would be a huge mistake.  He thinks very highly of himself, would demand big money, and be fired within 2 years like almost every other Knicks coach.

Hiring a guy like Larranaga is exactly the kind of move the Knicks need to make.
