Unless Phil Jackson shows serious interest in coaching the Nets this summer to Bruce Ratner - something one Nets source considers a longshot - Frank will continue to bark out plays on the Nets sidelines.
And Jason Kidd and Vince Carter wouldn't have it any other way.
"He is one of the best I've had," Carter said of Frank. "I have learned a lot. He gets the best out of me and puts me in position to succeed and he is cool; you can talk to him off the court. He believes that we are definitely going to make the playoffs."
"Through all the changes the way it got off, you can't point the finger at anybody," Kidd said. "Through all the changes, playing with seven guys, eight guys (sometimes), the injuries, you can only do so much. Coach has done a heck of a job of keeping us in it where we are at right now."
