The New York Knicks have hired head coach David Fizdale to turn the franchise around, according to ESPN. Fizdale took the Memphis Grizzlies to the playoffs last year after overhauling the offense. He's also a players' coach who can connect with the Knicks' roster. Still, New York needs more help than just a head coach. The team needs a complete overhaul. What do you think? 🏀

After a layup line of unsuccessful head coaches, David Fizdale is the coach the Knicks need to turn things around. Fizdale was dealt a losing hand with the Grizzlies in 2016, but quickly turned the team around to make the playoffs. More importantly, his players loved him in Memphis. Here is what Chandler Parsons had to say to CBS:

When I first met him, he's wearing a Wu-Tang T-shirt and jeans. I'm just like, this is my head coach. Like, it's kind of crazy. He's so young. He's just an awesome dude that we all respect and we all like and we want to rally around and we want to win for him.

The Knicks players are going to run through walls for Fizdale. He will save the team.

The Knicks have been in a rut the last few years, notching five straight losing seasons. Fizdale might add some stability, but the team has many more issues they need to resolve. The team is filled with players who are either too old to be effective or too young to consistently perform at a high level. Fizdale can only do so much with pieces that won't fit together.

He's taking over a team that sports channel FS1 called "hopeless" on bus advertisements in New York City. A franchise dealing with that kind of heat can't be saved by one person.
