Coach Derek Fisher still aiming for playoffs - Derek Fisher (G) New York Knicks

Coach Derek Fisher said that he is confident that the Knicks will make a run at the playoffs this season, despite the team sitting at 5-23 on the season.

Derek Fisher has a 'crazy' notion

New York Knicks coach Derek Fisher knows the idea “sounds crazy.” But he remains confident that the Knicks will make a run at the playoffs this season. “I think if we can get healthy and we can continue to build confidence in one another (and) in what we can do, we’ll still have a shot at the right time,” Fisher said on Thursday. At 5-23, the Knicks are off to the worst start in franchise history. They enter play Friday seven games back of Brooklyn for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Mavericks dominate as Fisher rips defenseless Knicks

Tyson Chandler was back at Madison Square Garden, bouncing around and playing with the kind of contagious energy his former team has missed. The Knicks didn't have the same passion or urgency, prompting Derek Fisher to pull all of his starters early in the game.

As Knicks look to future, Derek Fisher sees less team chemistry in present

Derek Fisher admits the Knicks' chemistry could be affected because many players are on expiring contracts and might not be a part of the team's future.

Fisher won't waver despite first major crisis

Derek Fisher has the first major crisis of his coaching career on his hands. The Knicks are 4-20. They’ve dropped 10 straight games. Team president Phil Jackson sees too much of a loser's mentality infecting his team. There’s injuries and in-house bickering between some players, who are not feeling the triangle according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard. Frustration is boiling. And Fisher, in his first year as a head coach ever, has to keep everybody calm, keep everybody believing in the triangle and keep everything from falling apart.

I have been reprogrammed to love Derek Fisher's coaching methods

It only hurts for a little while, I promise. I know nothing about basketball. Sure, I like to think I know a thing or two. I'm a man of reasonable intelligence and fancy book-learnin'. I type and speak many sentences filled with grammar and syntax and multisyllabic words...words about a sport which I assumed to be basketball. I held certain Knicks truths to be self-evident. Patrick Ewing = good. Mardy Collins = bad. The small-ball lineups have worked fairly consistently over the past three seasons. Clyde wears cool suits. But I have found a new truth, my friends. Derek Fisher has shown it...
