Smallthoughts: Rave of the Week Jeff Horneacek

Start here


Phil Jackson finally hired a coach, was the hire the best hire no …Tom Thibeadeux would have been the best and right hire but I suspect egos would have been clashing from the moment a deal was struck until one of them was shown the door, but Jackson made a good hire with Horneacek. Why? He has some coaching experience as opposed to Derek Fisher who had none and the fact that Horneacek is from the Jerry Sloan coaching tree having played for Sloan in Utah. Was this what Knick fans looking for? No. But as I told a friend at least he isn’t Kurt Rambis. This should make a certain player happy (Carmelo Anthony) As for his time in Phoenix he showed he can coach to his roster , let’s see what Jackson can surround Horneacek with and then see how he coaches but as for now …it’s better than Rambis.




  1. Brian Shaw would have been a much better option but once again Phil Jackson’s ego gets in the way of common sense . Jeff Hornaceks’ track record at best is simply mediocre . Jackson could have also gone after Patrick Ewing or Frank Vogel </a. as the Knicks' head coach . There isn't a great deal of intelligence to be found among the senior executives within the Knicks’ front office . .

      Horneacek’s record…well at least he has a record unlike Fisher who had no record and no style or feel for the job will at least give the Knicks a fighting chance as long as Phil let’s the coach do his job. I never understood the Knicks disconnect with Patrick Ewing.
