Kurt Rambis To Become Defensive Coach For Knicks


After being the assistant coach under Derek Fisher, then interim head coach after his firing, Kurt Rambis is taking on another role with the New York Knicks, this time as the defensive coach under Jeff Hornaceck. 

Rambis, who is a former player known predominantly for his time on the Los Angeles Lakers, will be put in charge of a defense that is currently ranked 27th in opponents points per game.

Due to the lack of jubilation that surrounded the Knicks for the past two seasons, the decision to make Rambis the defensive coach has been met with disdain to say the least.

To ease the evident pain of fans, media, coaches and players alike, we found this video from the 1980s of Kurt Rambis teaching us how to rebound. Maybe the Knicks will get the same lesson?
