What’s New – Apr. 16, 2018

 

ON FURTHER EXAMINATION A JEFF VAN GUNDY REUNION COULD BE A PERFECT STORM SITUATION.   JVG HAS BEEN “GETTING HIS MOJO BACK” COACHING THE USA FIBA TEAM AND FEELS LIKE HE WANTS TO GET BACK INTO COACHING AGAIN.   JVG IS 56 YEARS OF AGE AND HAS NOT COACHED IN THE NBA SINCE 2007.   LOOKING A LITTLE DEEPER HIS FAMILY WAS VERY SETTLED IN HOUSTON DURING THE YEARS FOLLOWING HIS DEPARTURE FROM HOUSTON.   HIS DAUGHTER WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL AND HE ENJOYED CALLING GAMES FOR THE NETWORK AND PARACHUTING IN ON WEEKENDS.  BUT NOW HIS DAUGHTER IS IN HER 20S AND THIS COULD IN FACT BE JVG’S LAST CHANCE TO REKINDLE HIS NARRATIVE AS AN NBA COACH.   JVG LOVES BIGS HAVING COACHED PATRICK EWING IN NEW YORK AND YAO MING IN HOUSTON SO CERTAINLY K.P. HAS TO BE AN ATTRACTIVE ASSET FOR HIM GOING FORWARD.

TANKISTS BE AWARE.. JVG IS NOT COMING TO NEW YORK TO LEAD A 20 WIN TEAM.  HE WILL CERTAINLY DO AL HE CAN TO MAKE THIS TEAM SUCCESSFUL. AS A 40 YEARS OLD HEAD COACH HE WAS VERY GOOD AT DEVELOPING YOUNGSTERS.  NO IDEA HOW THE 56 YEAR OLD JVG WOULD DO IN THAT ASPECT OF THE GAME.

IF JVG CAN GET PAST THE ISSUES WITH OWNERSHIP IN NEW YORK A REUNION MAY BE THE BEST CASE SCENARIO

 

NO.   I WAS A BIG WOODSON SUPPORTER AND MANY WHO HATED THE MAN HAVE COME AROUND TO THE REALIZATION THAT THE WOODSON YEARS WERE A HIGHLIGHT OF THE 21ST CENTURY KNICK HISTORY.   BUT HE’S A LITTLE TOO CLOSE TO COME BACK.  IF ANYTHING THIS LOOKS LIKE A SMOKE SCREEN.

I FEEL LIKE AT THIS POINT BLATT IS THERE FOR THE TAKING AS A FALL BACK BUT THE ORG IS EXPLORING THE POSSIBILITY OF A JVG REUNION.
