The Brooklyn Nets are now 2-0 under interim coach P.J. Carlesimo. Yeah, they won against the Bobcats and Cavaliers, but it's a streak regardless, and it's good enough for Nets' management to stick with Carlesimo for now. General Manager Billy King said that he hasn't even contacted the sought after Phil Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy.
In an interview with ESPN New York 98.7 FM, King didn't answer questions regarding Jackson and expressed his support for Carlesimo. He wouldn't even say when he was going to contact Jackson: "I don't know how many times I can say it or Mikhail can say it. P.J.'s our coach. We're gonna let him coach and then re-evaluate things. I know Mikhail said it about 10 times when he was asked, and I've been saying it, and I think people just keep dismissing what we say." He also suggested Carlesimo may finish the season.
Weird that no contacts have been made yet, but you know what they say: It's only weird if it doesn't work.
