Funny how a guy known for issuing ridiculous contracts in the NFL becomes an NBA agent and gets his client a ridiculous contract as a rookie head coach from a Knick team historic at issuing ridiculous contracts lol.     

 

Former NY Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum strikes gold with Steve Kerr as agent for deal with Warriors   Tannenbaum is now an agent representing coaches in basketball and football, and helped Kerr nail down a five-year deal worth $25 million for a first-time coach.

tannenbaum16s-1-web.jpgRON ANTONELLI/NEW YORK DAILY NEWSMike Tannenbaum is now working as an agent for coaches and got his first big deal with Steve Kerr.

Mike Tannenbaum used to hang a sign reading “Every Rock, Every Day” inside the Jets’ offices in Florham Park when he was the team's general manager.

One season removed from his old job, Tannenbaum is now an agent representing coaches in basketball and football, and he found gold beneath a far-off rock for his client in Golden State, nailing down a five-year deal worth $25 million for first-time coach Steve Kerr.

Kerr considered an offer from the Knicks and reuniting with former coach Phil Jackson at the Garden, but chose to stay closer to home and cash in on the high-salaried Warriors job.

By comparison, previous Warriors coach Mark Jackson reportedly worked under a three-year contract worth $6 million. Tannenbaum, who works for Priority Sports and Entertainment, maintained the Knicks were “more than generous” in their offer, as well.

“A lot of people are surprised by this but over time, there was an accumulation of information that led him to this decision,” Tannenbaum said on the “Boomer & Carton” radio show Thursday morning.

Tannenbaum considered Phil Jackson a “huge asset,” but also cited Kerr's California roots, his family’s location in San Diego and the Warriors’ young roster, which includes All-Star sharpshooter Stephen Curry, as the key attractions that lured him.

Tannenbaum also downplayed the idea of the Knicks’ dysfunction as a contributing factor. He noted that Kerr has been exploring the possibility of plunging into coaching for the first time for over a year. Kerr played 15 seasons in the NBA and served as general manager for the Phoenix Suns before moving into the broadcast booth.

“It was about putting him in the best position to be a great coach,” Tannenbaum said.

It was a long way from the Tannenbaum Jets fans tuned in to see meeting with cornerback Darrelle Revis’ agents at a diner on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” four years ago. Tannenbaum has transitioned well, finding his way on the other side of the negotiating table, and netting the biggest contract of his time as an agent with the Kerr deal.

Phil Jackson created a market for him, then Marv Albert explained to Kerr what life is like in Knicksville, so he did the right thing and scurried. The Knicks should just padlock the doors for the next three years. That's how bad they are.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

Either fanbase sh*tting on the other is pointless. If you don't have Lebron or Durant you're not winning anything for the next 5-10 years.

I'm going to see Lebron making semi-contested, off-balanced layups over and over again without missing in my dreams forever.
