Realy, this is a waste of money on NY's part, but then again, it is NY..
Even if you argue that he's been with great players his entire career you're still neglecting to look at what those teams have become when he's gone. They become disjointed with the powerful personalities simply taking over. Jackson is a great coach, not because of his x's and o's (even though I'm a big fan of the Triangle), it's because all of those guys buy in at once. They trust him. That's what leadership is. When all the guys simply follow and that's why he's a great coach.
