US sportswriter recommends Tim Cone as assistant coach for the troubled New York Knicks



The New York Knicks are so dysfunctional these days that there seems to be no quick fix in the problem. But one American writer suggested that the solution could be solved by none other than the PBA’s winningest coach – Tim Cone.

It may sound absurd but Roland Lazenby believes that hiring Cone on the Knicks organization could help the dilemma of team president Phil Jackson with regards to the players’ rebelling against the Triangle Offense which he implemented with great success.

Lazenby, who has written numerous NBA-related books including “Michael Jordan: The Life” and most recently “Showboat: The Life of Kobe Bryant”, endorsed Cone during a series of tweets that came after the Knicks ended their season with a 31-51 record.

The Knicks missed the playoffs for the fourth straight season and in their first year under coach Jeff Hornacek after a series of heartbreaking defeats and off-court drama marred by Jackson’s series of public tirades on superstar forward Carmelo Anthony. – Manila Bulletin
