  • Phil only coaches greats

  • D E

    Yes Phil, please coach. I want to see your overrated, underqualified ass play itself out.

  • D E

    This current First Take is like if NWA was made up solely of MC Ren clones.

  • He gonna fuck around and mess up his career win % coaching the Knicks

  • No, he doesn't need to coach. He needs to get the fuck out of NY!

  • Will Cain, Stay in your Lain!!

  • Phil has to coach our team, that's the only way he can fix his wrongdoings. If he leaves and quits or even gets fired, we'll remember arguably the greatest coach for his failure with the Knicks.

  • yeah let's give Phil more power over the Knicks organization that'll make it better

  • NOOO, Mark Jackson needs to coach the team.

  • So tired of this Great Value First Take

  • is will Cain dumb or retarded

  • Dude has 13 rings. He is a shitty GM but don't take away his coach and player ability.

  • Who are these niggas

  • I hate this fuckin white Jew!!!!!

  • Really? Giving that contract to Melo was his only mistake? I guess Jerry West and the Warriors gave Jokim Noah gave his horrible contract right? Or you know Danny Ainge traded away Tim Hardaway Jr who would have broken out to be a great role player/trade asset for Jerian Grant who was traded away to the Bulls by the way. And it was RC Buford and Greg Popovich who talked shit about team's stars just after giving them a No-trade clause in their contract. Of course who can forget about the time Mavericks hired Derrick Fisher as a coach who had no business being anywhere near a coaching job. Of course, now Magic Johnson is forcing Jeff Hornacek to implement triangle in a team with a shoot first point guard (who "Magic Johnson" traded for of course) and a star who's disgruntled with him and a team full of players who do not give a shit about the triangle. And Suns front office is trying now trade a 7'3 demigod who has star potential. The guy supporting Phil was right, he hasn't done anything wrong other than giving Melo his contract.

  • Phil is still trying to force the triangle when it clearly isn't working, THATS the problem

  • COACH THE KNICKS? HELL NAH!!!!!! GO FLY COACH TO LA, ALASKA, SOMEWHERE!!! JUST GET YO DUMBASS, YO OLD ASS, YO SHIT TALKIN ASS OUTTA HERE!!!!! 2 GOOD DRAFT PICKS AND A QUESTION MARK DOESNT MAKE UP FOR ALL THE OTHER SHIT!!!!! JUST GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE!!!!! TAKE YOUR TRIANGLE WITH YOU CUZ NOBODY WANTS TO PLAY IT, ITS NOT JUST MELO!!!!!! I DONT WANNA HEAR THAT BALL STOPPER BULLSHIT CUZ 15-16 HE LEAD THE TEAM IN PTS, REBS AND ASSISTS SO CLEARLY HE HAS TO DO EVERYTHING HIS DAMN SELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JUST LET HORNACEK DO HIS THING THAT HAD US AT 14-10!!!!!!! wiLL JUST SAID CLE______(he doesnt deserve part of the goat's name) EARLY WAS GOOD!!!!!!! MY DUDE HE WAS THE 1ST BUST TO BE A 2ND ROUNDER!!!!!! THIS MAN GOT SHOT MORE TIMES THAN HE SCORED IN DOUBLE FIGURES!!!!!! IS HE EVEN ON THE D LEAGUE TEAM? #firephiL #NotMyGM #NotMyCoach

  • Pretty obvious! The problem is that players currently in the NBA are NOT coachable in any way, shape or form except for those that play in the WESTERN CONFERENCE on GOOD teams!! Playing in the EASTERN CONFERENCE is a death-sentence for a players career at the moment = getting drafted there is HELL!!

  • his biggest mistake is carmelo? no, it;s not. it's noah, not melo. melo has actually produced, he's actually played. noah barely played last year and when he did he didnt produce and made the team far worse. when melo doesnt play the knicks always lose. this is fucking ridiculous.

  • He can't even go to an away game and sleeps during workouts and he should coach? He doesn't care that much. The other reason he won't coach is that he knows it would be a disaster and hurt his legacy a lot. He doesn't have any superstar this time and manically believes in triangle offence.

  • will he stay awake while coaching?

  • i like this girl better, shes actually good and she talks, plus she looks nice

  • yeah im sure the triangle will work in this day and age…….FOH

  • Nope! Phil is great at managing Alpha Ego's but the NBA is about Jim's & Joe's not X's & O's. His Triangle Offense obsession is ruining any rebuilding that is taking place. Forget the Knicks until both Phil & his outdated system are gone before they can rebuild with any substance

  • Try and hire Gary Payton as coach… he knows exactly what he's talkin about when he talks to players

  • Is Will Cain on Crack? Phil hasn't been that bad 😱😱😱 1. He traded J.R smith and Iman Shumpert for fuck all 2. Trade Tyson Chandler and Reymond Felton to player not in the NBA no more 3. If Derrick rose doesn't re-sign with the Knicks we basically traded Lopez, Calderon and Grant for Justin Holiday 4. Signed trash (Noah) to a four year $72 million contract fucking up cap space 5. Resigned Carmelo to a 5 year $124 million contract with no trade clause then decides to make him untradeable by openly bashing him in the media 6. Refuses to get with the times and enforces that the Knicks play with triangle offense which no one wants or knows how to play with 7. Making the Knicks so dysfunctional that even if we somehow got rid of Carmelo Noah and rose no one wants to play for us 8. Now drafting Ntilikina over Monk (arguably the best shooter in the draft class). Phil Jackson and James Dolan need to get tf out of the Knicks

  • I ain't watching this show again this week,get this clowns outta here! Stephen A and Max where you at???

  • He signed Derek Rose, bad mouthed the superstar and future star on television, hasn't gotten the team a real coach or in the playoffs. What has he done right BESIDES draft The Unicorn?

  • Phil can't coach in today's NBA

  • Will is a stupid fuck. Phil hired an inexperienced coach in Derek Fisher and wanted him to teach the Triangle. The Triangle which doesn't work in today's game. Also, he traded away Chandler, Felton, Shumpert, JR Smith, Jose Calderon, Robin Lopez and all that the Knicks got that is active is the often injured Derrick Rose.

  • No, Carmelo and Joakim is not the issue. It's Phil and the triangle offense. The triangle offense doesn't work to the strength of these current players. They need to be playing high post offense or motion offense.

  • Herm always sounds great on these shows, a true showman.

  • agree Phil should coach the newyork

  • John Sally got it RIGHT
    That should've bin done

  • He's no Pat Riley. He doesn't have the guts to coach a bad team.

  • Will Cain is the Kellyanne Conway of sports.

  • Need Phil to just go away

  • Herman Edward is right …

  • i cant believe im saying this but i miss molly and max. i also miss sas but thats normal hes the goat 😀

  • hell fucking NOOO

  • We talk about kicking his ass off the NY map and now we want him to coach? hell no

  • Not unless the players kill him first lol.

  • He can't Coach the team anymore because his best players, actually all of his players hate him.

  • Totally disagree with Will Cain on this one….there have been a ton of mismanagement moves made by Phil Jackson. He's a novice making mistake after mistake which is forgivable, but his arrogance is what has caused such dysfunction in the team.
    Melo on the other hand has done nothing wrong. He hasn't spoken out against Phil or the organization just reacted to what arrows have been thrown at him randomly. Melo's only flaw is that he's not athletically superior like Kobe or MJ, and at his age his game isn't as malleable to the changes Phil wants to impose on him. He is what he is. Shame on him I guess….smh.
