Sources: Knicks, Phil Jackson met

Denver Nuggets coach and former Jackson protege Brian Shaw said he was not surprised to hear about Jackson potentially being linked to the Knicks but that he believed Jackson's coaching days are over.

"Going back to the last year that we were all together (in 2011), I don't think at this point that he would really have the energy to (coach)," Shaw said. "Like a night like tonight, after playing last night and getting in at 3:30 in the morning and just going through all that on a night-in, night-out basis, I think he would be more inclined to -- in terms of constructing a team from top to bottom -- be in more of an advisory role or a front-office role where he can put his imprint on a team in that way."'s Ramona Shelburne,'s Ohm Youngmisuk and Ian Begley, and's Dave McMenamin contributed to this report.
