While Tom Thibodeau would have been my 1st choice and Mark Jackson as my 2nd but I do like the hiring.

While Tom Thibodeau would have been my 1st choice and Mark Jackson as my 2nd but I do like the hiring.   Jeff Hornacek was a heck of a player who played on the Utah Jazz.   Most people know the names John Stockton and Karl Malone but, the witty play and sharp shooting of Hornacek; was critical to that team’s success.  Coach Hornacek played and learned under the great Jerry Sloan.

Here’s Highlights from Jeff’s Career via Youtube.

Coach Hornacek’s coaching resume looks like this:

·2007-2012 -Was apart of the Utah Jazz coaching staff.
·2013-2016 – Was hiring as the Head Coach of the Phoenix Suns and held a 58% winning record in his 1st season.

The Knicks need a lot of help at the guard position and that one thing we can all say Jeff Hornacek knows a lot about.

I believe Coach Hornacek can bring an up tempo game, Calm and collected attitude and help develop players skills.   The Knicks need a lot of help at the guard position and that one thing we can all say Jeff Hornacek knows a lot about.

Look at what Coach Nick from BBallBreakdown had to stay about why Jeff Hornacek was fired from the Suns.
