Could Phil Jackson be coaching Carmelo and the Knicks next season?

Reports were coming out on Tuesday that Phil Jackson could potentially coach only home games for the New York Knicks next season. Ramona Shelburne, of ESPN, was the first to report that Phil Jackson has been getting into much better physical shape and that he’s possibly thinking of coaching again.

Since then, Phil Jackson has already denied these rumors:

Now, one important point here is that this whole thing was described as just “talk.” There hasn’t been anything going around the league about it, just some talk inside the club. However, reporters still decided to ask Carmelo Anthony about all of this talk and he says he “wouldn’t accept” Jackson only coaching the home games.

Not only that, Melo doesn’t even believe that Jackson would coach either.

Let’s get something straight here, the Knicks are already a mess so far. Add in the fact that they would have two different coaches on gameday throughout the season, and that’s just a recipe for disaster. Unless these guys share the same brain or something, that’s not going to work out in favor of the team. Why can’t Phil Jackson just try to keep doing his best in the position that he has now? Some rumors always come up about him coaching, and they almost never make sense. Although, I almost want to see this happen because I’d love to see what kind of drama comes out of a two-headed coaching system.
