Jeff Van Gundy
Before Sunday’s loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, Metta World Peace and Kenyon Martin were involved in a heated verbal argument after a team workout.
According to a report, the Knicks could be targeting Jeff Van Gundy as their next head coach.
Metta World Peace’s renowned tenacity is exactly what the Knicks needed to add to their defensively-inept roster.
The Nets are continuing to search for their next head coach, and it’s no secret that owner Mikhail Prokhorov likes big names. Cue Larry Brown, the current head men’s basketball coach at Southern Methodist University.
Indiana Pacers associate head coach Brian Shaw has emerged as a serious target of general manager Billy King and owner Mikhail Prokhorov, according to a report.
According to a report, the Nets and former NBA coach Jeff Van Gundy have begun preliminary talks over their head coaching position.

The Knicks know how to win ugly and well — that’s beautiful.
With Marcus Camby returning to Madison Square Garden, the present-day New York Knicks are resembling their defensive-strong teams of the late 1990s. Who is to say that New York can’t be the third-best team in the East?

Nope, that’s not a typo. Mike D’Antoni’s Knicks are winning with defense. It’s the first time that could be said of any Knicks team since Jeff Van Gundy was the coach more than ten years ago. Don’t believe me? Just look at the numbers.
It was an honor to be a part of “In Brayden’s Eyes” – an elite coaching clinic to benefit the Brayden Carr Foundation. Over 500 coaches attended and over $80,000 dollars was raised. The speakers were Bob Hurley, Bill Self, John Calipari, Jeff Van Gundy, Larry Brown and Mike Rice.
It was an excellent Knicks win over the Heat on Sunday. While people are focusing on what it means for the Knicks, this game actually told us more about the Heat.
Whenever you abandoned the Knicks, it may be time to return, to emerge from your cave and wipe the crust from your heavily blinking eyes. There may again be a basketball team in New York City.
