Pau Gasol had the opportunity to play under Jackson during the 2009 and 2010 Lakers championship winning season seasons. The Lakers veteran commented on his former coach’s new job via Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

Jackson and Pau Gasol have always had a great player-coach relationship, and to this day, the two still remain in contact despite belonging to different organizations. Pau looks forward to hearing more about Jackson’s new position directly from the man himself via Winters:

Surely, Gasol will have similar questions for Jackson as the rest of the NBA fans base does. When a highly successful former head coach not only transitions to an entirely different aspect of the game but also for a team that is not the Lakers, one has to wonder what exactly Jackson’s new position will entail and why he has decided to make the move.

Lakers and Knicks fans alike will observe the following seasons to see the course of action Jackson looks to take in order to rehabilitate the Knicks organization altogether. The former Lakers head coach may be the answer to save the Knicks franchise.
