He might not have been your first choice, Knicks fans, or even on your radar before this week, but the impending signing of Jeff Hornacek as the team’s ninth coach since Jeff Van Gundy left should be greeted with open arms. Dude nearly won a Coach of the Year Award in 2014 before being unceremoniously fired for a shitty start last season in Phoenix. He’s smart. He’s played under a coaching icon (Jerry Sloan). But most importantly, Jeff Hornacek has an up-tempo, contemporary coaching style that perhaps signals an end to Phil Jackson’s dedication to an outdated offense that relies heavily on long twos. But most importantly, he’s not Kurt Rambis, who wouldn’t otherwise know his ass from his elbow unless it was explicitly described on a porn-y Twitter account.
You guys dodged a bullet here by not winding up with ol’ Rec Specs. Hornacek was a great choice.
This is his stupidly hot daughter, Abby. She is also a very good choice.
