Knicks Put Kurt Rambis In Charge Of Their Defense, And Twitter Is Going Nuts
ESPN's Marc Stein first reported it and now Knicks' head coach Jeff Hornacek has confirmed, assistant Kurt Rambis has been put in charge the team's defense. New York has struggled to a 2-4 record so far, plagued mainly by their league-worst defense (71.6 defensive rating).
Phil Jackson is a big Rambis fan, and this confirms it. But more important to us is the Twitter reaction to this move, because it's quite amusing so far.

This pretty much sums up why people are a bit peeved:
Kurt Rambis was head coach of the Timberwolves for 2 seasons in '09-10 & '10-11. Over that time, MIN ranked 28th in def efficiency.

The phrases "Kurt Rambis" and "coaching" and "the Knicks" should never be uttered in the same sentence. Burn my eyeballs.
