So help me god Phil… so help me GOD if Frank Vogel is not on a podium in Madison Square Garden next to you and that fat idiot James Dolan by Monday afternoon, the next and last vacation you ever take will be a trip to Belize.
So help me god, Phil.
If Frank Vogel… who was born and raised in New Jersey… who was (probably) a Knicks fan growing up… who is young (only 42) but still experienced (10 years as an assistant, 5 as a head coach)… who isn’t some fucking idiot former player… who is a great defensive coach… who is the only coach in the East to really challenge Lebron’s teams over the last five seasons… who just took a relatively underwhelming Indy roster to game 7 against the second best team in the East… and who ABSOLUTELY should not be available right now…
If he is not the coach of the New York Knicks within the next 48 hours, I will burn this city to the ground. I will light myself on fire and take you down with me. This is your do-over. You whiffed on Thibs and Walton — and by whiffed I mean “didn’t even try”, — but you can redeem yourself here. This is the second chance you weren’t supposed to get. There is no conceivable or logical reason why Frank Vogel is available right now, but he is. Larry Legend just gave you a gift. And so help me god Phil… so help me GOD if Frank Vogel is not on a podium in Madison Square Garden next to you and that fat idiot James Dolan by Monday afternoon the next and last vacation you ever take will be a trip to Belize.
*Pop, Kerr, Carlisle, Stevens, Thibs, Budenhoelzer, Van Gundy, Vogel, Clifford, Spoelstra in some order. Stotts and Joergar are right there too.
