It’s very likely that Steve Kerr is Phil Jackson’s No. 1 choice to run the Knicks.
On Wednesday, as callers to Mike Francesa’s afternoon drive on WFAN radio continued to “ask” for Mark Jackson to get consideration for the job, they were told it isn’t going to happen. Francesa, like many other “experts” who cover, talk, and write about the NBA, all seem convinced it’s Kerr or bust for the Knicks. The other popular theory is that Phil Jackson wants Kerr so he can “coach through his former player,” because conversations with Carmelo Anthony, through sources, say so.
Considering the Warriors and Lakers are now inthe mix for Kerr, Phil Jackson must look at his list of oher candidates, and if Mark Jackson isn’t on it, he should be. It’s likely he already is.
