08:10 AM ET 11.17 | The Big Negotiator? Shaquille O'Neal might be the right guy to broker a deal. Not between NBA owners and players but perhaps between James Dolan and Phil Jackson. O'Neal, promoting the release of his new book "Shaq Uncut," praised his former coach with the Los Angeles Lakers and even called Dolan "a fabulous businessman." Jackson, of course, retired after last season, but it is already being speculated that the Hall of Fame coach will resurface with the Knicks next season. Current Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni is in the final year of his contract with the club. "He may come back," O'Neal said of Jackson, a member of the Knicks' '70 and '73 teams. "His focus and the way he did things and the way he taught us how to do things, he did it on a cool, calm respectable level."

I don't think you can change the Mike D system to Phil Jackson system and be successful in the window that he would want to go after a championship
