In Part I of Hahn’s conversation with former NBA All-Star and MSG Network analyst Wally Szczerbiak, the two discuss how Derek Fisher will adjust to the role as head coach of the Knicks just one year after playing for the Thunder.
“Obviously, [Fisher] is a rookie coach, so he’s going to go through a little bit of a learning curve,” Szczerbiak said.
“But everything about Derek Fisher says that he’s a great leader. I don’t see any reason why he’s not going to be a great coach and have a long career.”
Editor’s Note: Stay tuned for more video from Hahn’s conversations with Szczerbiak and Shields and the complete interviews in an upcoming edition of The Knicks Fix podcast.
In Part II of Hahn’s conversation with Szczerbiak, the two discuss the triangle offense.
Szczerbiak has plenty of experience defending the triangle, having gone up against Phil Jackson’s Lakers many times in his career.
“It’s so good with spacing,” Szczerbiak said. “That’s going to help Carmelo Anthony a lot.”
Hahn also talked with Ben Shields, co-author of The Sports Strategist: Developing Leaders for a High-Performance Industry and lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management.
One of the leading minds in basketball analytics, Shields talked about how analytics is changing the way we think about the game.
