NY Knicks At The Center Of Sport Entertainment – David Fizdale Is The Right Hire.
It is not always good but the New York Knicks are at the center of the Sports Entertainment world. Today – they are not just entertaining, they actually made a move that made sense. The hiring of David Fizdale as the new coach makes sense!
In Memphis, David Fizdale showed he had the ability to adopt his coaching style. Adopt it in a way that maximized the talent of his roster. As a result, he helped lead the Grizzlies to a playoff berth in his first season as head coach. Unfortunately, for coach Fizdal a run in with Marc Gasol lead to his demise. The run in cost the coach his job after only 19 games in his second year with the team.
David Fizdale – New Beginnings With The New York Knicks
In this new era of Knicks basketball, Fizdale wants to bring an uptempo offense to a young Knicks roster. From Game 1 expect this team to RUN. We can see it now! Our young shinning star Kristapas Porzingis running like the WIND! They also have unproven guards who should start running NOW. Get those guards in shape and make a good 1st impression on your coach.
There are many positives you can point to about the Fizdale hire. Positives like accountability. Last season, there seemed to be a lack of holding players accountable under Jeff Hornacek. With Fizdale he expects his players to translate tough defense into creating turnovers. With turnovers, he demands that his players transition to a fast-break offense that creates easy points. If a player is lackadaisical on defense, expect him to find the fizdale doghouse quickly.
Coach Fizdale seems to be an acceptable hire for the Knicks. It brings a style of play and personality that suites a young team trying to find its way. Best of luck Coach! We hope you find the formula that turns the New York Knicks around.
