Michael Rapaport Wants Mark Jackson As Next Head Coach of Knicks

For weeks now, five-time NBA champion and current TNT analyst Steve Kerr has been considered the favorite to reunite with former Bulls coach Phil Jackson and assume head coaching duties for the Knicks in the near future.

But the Golden State Warriors’ ousting of coach Mark Jackson has put a potential wrench into such plans. Kerr’s strong ties with many people in the team’s front office make him an instant candidate to be Jackson’s successor, according to Ian Begley.

But regardless of whether or not Kerr heads out to Golden State, our good friend Michael Rapaport hopes Jackson returns to the Big Apple to coach instead.

Appearing on the B.S. Report with Bill Simmons, Rapaport expressed such a preference, discussed his plan to return to the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game, and more. Hear more of what he had to say by clicking right here.
