NY Knicks Need Perfect Pitch to Land Phil Jackson

According to a source who's close to legendary former NBA coach Phil Jackson, the 66-year-old may possibly end up back on the sidelines coaching again. This time in the World's Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden, coaching the Knicks.

Even though he has concerns about the current Knicks rotation, the source says Jackson still hasn't ruled out taking the job. 

However, the Knicks and owner James Dolan will have to make a strong pitch to land Jackson, who retired after last season with the Los Angeles Lakers. Money will certainly play a large factor, according to columnist Adrian Wojnarowski.

"Jackson isn't enthralled with the Knicks' roster, a source who talks to him said, but that doesn't mean he'd completely rule out the job. New York matters to him, and, so does money, the kind of money only the desperation of Dolan could dole out."

Knicks fans, would you like to see Phil Jackson coaching Melo and Amar'e at some point or does Mike Woodson have what it takes to lead this team to victory?

The Knicks could sure use his wisdom, as they're currently down 0-3 to the Miami Heat.
