Dennis Rodman puts his name forward for New York Knicks job

Published Add your comment

The New York Knicks made the decision to fire former head coach Derek Fisher just a few hours ago. 

The Knicks currently hold a 23-31 record, good enough for just 12th place in the Eastern Conference with only the Bucks, Nets, and Sixers sitting between them and the foot of the standings. 

New York needed to make a change to try and get themselves out of the doldrums and Phil Jackson has decided the time is now. Jackson, the Knicks Team President, already has an offer from a familiar face wishing to take over in the Big Apple and it's from Dennis Rodman.

Yes, the Dennis Rodman. The 54-year-old, who has spent more time in North Korea than he does coaching experience, took to Twitter to throw his hat into the ring. 

"Hey @PhilJackson11 @nyknicks, I have a pretty decent resume on the court and I can coach; and I'm available. Call me. @nba" Rodman sent out.

We aren't sure if he's serious either. If he is serious, then Rodman has some stiff competition for the role.

Luke Walton is the current favorite to get the head coaching gig after his incredibly impressive stint as interim coach of the Warriors earlier this season while Steve Kerr was resting up following back surgery. 

Kurt Rambis has been named interim head coach in Fisher's departure and could stake his claim with an impressive record in however long he has, while Brian Shaw is also apparently among the running after being fired this time last year by the Denver Nuggets.
