New York Knicks’ head coach Jeff Hornacek has the support of Jeff Van Gundy.
If anyone knows how difficult it is to coach in New York City, for a huge organization like the Knicks, it’s former Knicks’ head coach and current ESPN NBA analyst Jeff Van Gundy.
As of right now, the expectation after this season is that the Knicks will move on from current head coach Jeff Hornacek and Van Gundy believes he’s done a good job despite the what the critics might say.
“I think Jeff has done an admirable job under very difficult circumstances. When you have an injury to your best player — and I had that with (Patrick) Ewing — it changes the whole tone and tenor of the season. That challenge is real. And then you’re changing management, you’re trying to incorporate some young players. To me, they, and I think Scott Perry and Steve Mills understand, that they have a long way to go roster-wise to get back to being competitive. But Jeff’s composure, his even-keelness through the injury, the (Joakim) Noah situation, I think he’s really done an admirable job.”
