Doc Rivers would be the Knicks’ best coach since Pat Riley — sorry Jeff Van Gundy, but it’s true — and that hiring would make the Jason Kidd signing look like nothing more than a PR stunt.
According to a report, the Nets and former NBA coach Jeff Van Gundy have begun preliminary talks over their head coaching position.
The Celtics have denied the Nets the opportunity to speak with coveted head coach Doc Rivers.
The Nets may have made great strides in 2012-13, but a bad choice and some bad luck could easily make them laughingstocks once again.
