      A four or five year mega deal for a coach that’s hasn’t been in charge of one game on any level. If it didn’t make me laugh, I’d cry. So knicks.

      I’m not sure what has you so upset — that they are hiring a guy with no coaching experience or that they are going to end up paying him so much. If it is the former, I don’t agree with you, but I acknowledge that reasonable minds can disagree on that point. If it is the latter, I’m not sure why you or anyone else cares how much he’s going to make. It doesn’t affect their cap situation at all and it’s not like the extra one or two million a year is going to affect ticket prices or cable tv prices, so who cares?
