Inside Mark Jackson's bad Knicks interview

(Credit: The Final Score)

Our hard-working Alan Hahn reports today that Mark Jackson had a so-so interview with Donnie Walsh for the Knicks coaching job.

What does that mean exactly?

Did Jackson show up 20 minutes late and blame the "f-ing 'roids" he has to take to get started in the morning? Did he try to chest-bump Walsh instead of shaking hands? Did he answer a question with "boo-yeah!" instead of "yes"? Did he say nice things about Isiah Thomas? Did he do the helicopter and knock over Walsh's prized hummels?

Here are some actual bad interview stories from

-- Applicant stretched out on the floor to fill out the job application.

-- Applicant brought her large dog to the interview.

-- Applicant chewed bubble gum and constantly blew bubbles.

-- Applicant wore a Walkman, claiming she could listen to the interviewer and the music at the same time.

-- Balding applicant abruptly excused himself and returned to the office a few minutes later, wearing a hairpiece.

-- Applicant challenged the interviewer to arm wrestle.

-- Applicant announced she hadn't had lunch and proceeded to eat a hamburger and french fries during the interview.

-- Applicant threw up on the interviewer's desk and immediately started asking questions about the job, like nothing had happened.

-- Applicant sits down in interviewer's office, leans back, puts his feet on her desk, and proceeds to tell her why he should have her job.

-- Applicant said if he were hired, he would demonstrate his loyalty by having the corporate logo tattooed on his forearm.

Actually, that last one might work in the NBA.
