Inside Mark Jackson's bad Knicks interview
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 www.gradview.com:
-- 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.
