WELCOME ABOARD, KURT RAMBIS

With a lot of free agent signings and plenty of moves still on the way this offseason for the New York Knicks, Kurt Rambis has joined the coaching staff to be Derek Fisher’s right hand man.

Rambis has been a part of 8 NBA Championships either as a player, assistant coach or general manager all with the L.A Lakers. He also was an assistant under Phil Jackson for 7 seasons, so the relationship and style of play is very close. Derek Fisher also has a past relationship with Rambis, which will make Fisher’s transition from player to coach a whole lot more comfortable.

One negative that comes along with this signing is that Rambis coached in Minnesota for 2 seasons with a record of 32-132. The win-lose record might not be the worst thing about those 2 seasons. Rambis and All-Star Kevin Love did not get along too well at all, so that might detract Love from ever getting traded or signing as a free agent in the upcoming years.

Rambis was originally drafted by the Knicks 34 years ago, although never played a game.
