Given Phil Jackson’s dogged devotion to the triangle offense, Brian Shaw has already emerged as a potential candidate to replace fired Derek Fisher. And despite Shaw’s losing record in Denver, several Nuggets told The Post their former coach could handle New York and win in the Garden. “I heard his name came up,” Wilson Chandler told The Post. “Dealing with New York? He played [under pressure] before. I mean, L.A.’s not New York, but it’s the second-biggest market. I think he’ll do fairly well being mentored under Phil Jackson, and playing with the Lakers and winning a few championships, he knows about pressure. So just from that standpoint I think he’ll do good. I think he’s a good coach, personally, and I always knew he’d get another chance to be a head coach. He’s a great assistant coach, a great person, great dad, husband, all-around person. I hope he gets the job.’’

Before a few days ago, Wilson Chandler would have had a tough time recalling the last time he cried. But tears welled up in his eyes when he realized his season, this season, was over before it ever began. “In the past when I’ve had surgery I’ve been down, but never got teary eyes like this,” said Chandler on Thursday, one day after the Nuggets made it known the veteran forward needs season-ending surgery to repair a labral tear. “It’s like ‘Man, it’s always something.’ Definitely heartbreaking, especially after the summer I’ve had.”
