So here’s the scene. You get called into your new boss’s office, where upon he asks you “How are Saturday and Sunday nights looking for you?” If you want to keep your job, the obvious answer will probably be “I’m here to do what’s good for the company.”
So Mike Woodson, how’s the triangle offense for you?
Apparently after meeting with new Knicks president Phil Jackson, the current (stress current) New York Knicks head coach Woodson says he’s got no problem coaching Phil Jackson’s lauded offense.
“Could I teach it? Absolutely, I can teach it,” Woodson said. “But it’d be even better if he helped me teach it. That would be great. Who would be better in teaching the triangle than Phil Jackson?” [Source: ESPN.com]
Let’s face it, Woodson is going to say whatever is necessary to keep his job coaching the Knicks…no matter how misguided that premise may be (we’re looking at you, Steve Kerr, Jim Cleamons and John Calipari).
Of course he’ll say he can teach and coach the offense, and it’s wonderful the way he slipped in how he wanted Jackson’s guidance. Translation: “I have no idea how to run this offense, and if Phil doesn’t lay it out for me, I’m dead in the water.”
Just keep the threads from completely unraveling for a couple of more months, Mike. It will all be over soon.
