Ewing Disappointed About Not Getting A Head Coaching Gig

7 posts in this topic

I’m disappointed,’’ Ewing said on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show of not getting a head-coaching opportunity yet. “Naturally everybody who does this thing, the goal is to be a head coach. I felt I've paid my dues, worked hard, studied hard with the goal of trying to become a head coach. “I’m disappointed it hasn't happened yet. All I can do is keep on working and keep on hoping someone one day will have faith in me like the way they have faith in Jason that they can get the job done. In terms of Jason, I’m very happy for him. They believe he can get it done and wish him luck.’’ New York Post

 

“My relationship with the Knicks is fine,’’ Ewing said. “Mr. Dolan has been very good to me. He gave me a great opportunity to do some TV. I cherish the opportunity maybe one day in near future, I’ll be back in the organization. I have no problem with the Knicks. I have no problem with the Dolans and it’s fair to say they have no problems with myself.’’ Ewing said he has no interest in being a D-League coach. “I wasn't offended,’’ Ewing said. “I didn't want to be a coach in the developmental league. I wanted to be a coach in the NBA.”The opportunity wasn't in my best interest.’ New York Post

 

As far as his son tweeting he was “real mad’’ at Kidd’s hire while his father has received just two head-coaching interviews, Ewing said, “I told him he needs to get rid of his Twitter account. All he’s going to do is end up in trouble. I appreciate it. I love him to death, but I don’t need him to fight my battles.’’ New York Post

 

If all goes well, Ewing will eventually get that head coaching job and Coach Clifford will have his own coaching tree.

Well, being the Bobcats, Ewing has a great shot as becoming the next HC for the 2014-2015 season replacing Clifford.

What if Steve Clifford is a really great coach? Who says Ewing will be a fantastic head coach?

No one said Ewing will be a fantastic or even a good coach but he deserves a gig over a guy like Jason Kidd who just retired.

Not sure I agree with that.

 

Great point guards typically have an understanding of the game that most big men don't.

 

Not saying that Kidd will be a ggreat coach...or even a decent one.  But, there is some logic to it.

Logic to it or not, a guy that just retired and is only two years older than one of his players (Jerry Stackhouse), doesn't deserve to just be handed a job without any experience.

Ewing at least has the experience and has shown that he is a capable leader.

Hell, Jason Kidd will still be battling legal fees for his DUI when free agency starts.

    • Another thing that jumped out to me that I didn't expect was that Philly Brown seemed to get a lot more playing time than I remembered.    I like Philly a lot, but it's not surprising we didn't re-sign him. He didn't do much with the playing time we gave him. 
    • Ok guys, I am trying to take a look at the roster.  Let me know if I missed any players, have any of the positions wrong, or you think any players need to be moved for the current depth chart.
