Sloan is out, whether it is because he wanted to step down, or was asked to, but seeing as how many coaches have worked well into their 70's, does anybody think that Sloan might actually be a good fit somewhere else in the league? Or is this it?

people, just because you rephrase the title slightly doesnt mean it's an entirely new thread topic

Ha, I doubt he'd come back but if the Knicks smartened up and fired D'Antoni and hired Sloan, it would do wonders for that team.

I can't really agree with that given the players that we have right now. We're athletic, but we're not all-in defensively.

Our game is built around the run-n-gun style and I think (with luck) it can be a winning formula and we can make a run in the playoffs.

I would LOVE Jerry Sloan 3 years ago before we hired D'Antoni and gave the roster an offensive upheaval. But now it just makes very little sense to go back and try to totally switch our mindset from 'Offense Offense Offense' to 'Slow it down a notch, play some D'

Although Sloan never had many stars on his team, he did have scrappy players who were committed to defense.

Off topic: Alvin Gentry > Mike D

I have immense respect for Jerry Sloan.

but he's old school, and perhaps a little too old school.

He had a fantastic run with Utah, and he should just leave it at that. Just like Jordan never should have come back with the Wizards, Sloan coached his last game for the team he coached for 22 years against the team he was an all star with. It was somewhat of a fitting end. And it should be an end.

I'm on the fence about this...i really like Jerry great coach...i Cant see him as anything but a Bull or part of the Jazz though. I think he's done coaching.

But i dont think he's done with basketball...i think he ends up in the Bulls orginization doing something

No you don't. Until NY or any team keep away from a NO Defense type of coach, these teams would not be taken as serious threat by the league contenders, no matter how much firepower they have on their team. Basketball is meant to be played on both part of the court, and those who thrive on them will always be respected as possible contenders.

Sorry NY but if your FO is really serious in winning and NOT just entertaining, you should get a more balanced coach. Firepower can have the element of surprise, but its effectiveness wears after the time when it is already revealed and expected. More like NY's 1st quarter streak. Having your own counter surprise is always a dependable fall back.

Sloan would be an enormous upgrade to D'antoni, NY should get him if they can.

posts like this, give me my views on knick fans.

really, great coach? no thats a lie, dantoni will never win a championship, all he and his system is, is a box office attraction.


even the heat players said it takes a team, not just talent to win in this league.

you can have amare, melo, cp3, and howard, and your still a 2nd round exit at best under dantoni.

defense wins championships

say with that team, easy to beat, 1 foul howard, 2 let melo shoot 3's all game, dont let paul get into the lane, let amare go for 30+. cause we all know melo is not a good 3pt shooter, howard cant hit a FT. so yeah keep dantoni, and win nothing, then when you smarten up, you will want him gone.

NY does not have a great coach. Hes above par at best, maybe slightly better.

Also I don't see the point of adding "New" in the title. "Should Sloan find work" works too. The "New" is kind of redundant.
