|Derek Fisher ticks off all the boxes. But will he ultimately be the Knicks' next coach?|
He's a great motivator, great speaker and can really relate to a lot of guys and demands that respect from everybody. He's a great locker room guy. I'm sure he'll do a great job [as a coach].
That doesn't happen by accident. There's a reason why players that have multiple championships have multiple championships. There's a certain characteristic and an understanding and knowledge and that's not something that's easily taught. You kind of have to go through it and it kind of has to be part of your DNA from the beginning. So, that's something that's obviously tough to replace.
