It appears that the New York Knicks are already thinking of their next head coach, even as their current head coach, David Fizdale, is roaming the sidelines.

According to Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix, should the Knicks season continue to spiral, even though it’s only been a week since the season started, the Knicks would bring in former player and Golden State Warriors’ head coach Mark Jackson.

Per the article: “One name to consider if the season really starts to careen: Mark Jackson. The ex-Warriors coach (and ex-Knick) was a favorite of GM Scott Perry during the interview process in 2018, and Jackson has made no secret about his desire to coach again.

“It’s just been relentless work. I feel like I’ve got something to prove,” Smith Jr. said, according to The New York Daily News’ Kristian Wingfield.

“I’ve got a chip on my shoulder still, but I’ve just been working. I try to attack each day and look at it as if I didn’t leave anything on the table. I got the most out of my day. … I’m gonna come in, bring that into training camp and be a leader, lead by example, earn my respect from these guys and then carry that into the season.”

The New York Knicks may have made headlines for the moves that they didn’t make during the free agency period this summer, but forward Taj Gibson is one player happy to be where he is.

In fact, Gibson says playing for the Knicks is a “dream come true”.

“I just always had it in the back of my mind, it was always one of those places I wanted to go,” said Gibson, according to Zach Braziller of the New York Post. “I wasn’t scared of the opportunity. I was waiting for the right opportunity [to come here]. I just jumped on it. I know they’ve had a lot of tough years, but when you win games, the city loves you. I’m looking forward trying to compete and playing hard.”

Gibson, 34, grew up in Brooklyn, New York.

“It’s a dream come true and it’s a blessing, because I grew up a Knicks fan,” Gibson said. “To be back home around my people, it’s amazing.”
