NEW YORK (WFAN) — The Knicks managed to convince Phil Jackson to move east. Jackson couldn’t do the same with Steve Kerr, who spurned New York on Wednesday for a five-year deal to coach the Golden State Warriors.
The move drew comparisons Thursday to Bill Belichick snubbing the Jets for New England from WFAN co-host Boomer Esiason.READ MORE: Search On For Driver Of Car That Killed Pedestrian, 52, In Brooklyn
“I’m sure this isn’t the most popular decision with everybody in our market,” Kerr’s agent, former Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum, said on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show. “You guys love New York. I do. It’s a unique place, we all know it, it’s special. It’s the reason it’s the biggest and the best. But let’s face it, it’s not for everybody.”
