And there's a certain field leader Shaw wants to take Lawson to visit in order to show him what he expects of him. Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. "One thing I wanted to do with him," Shaw said, "and still may do before we get too heavy into is I want to take him to a Broncos practice so he can see Peyton Manning and how he directs traffic, and how everybody falls in line behind him. But they only do that because they know the work ethic that he has and the time he puts in, and they respect that." CBSSports.com

In the locker room, where they dress and tease and bond and strategize, it’s all about chemistry. Except when it’s about technology. “Say we have a shootaround or a team meeting that starts at 9:30. Guys start trickling in at 9:15,” Denver coach Brian Shaw said the other day, talking about these modern times. “We used to come in and sit around and talk to one another face to face. Now these guys have their devices and they’ll all be sitting at a table and nobody’s saying anything to anybody. They’re just punching buttons and looking down, and there’s no interaction.” NBA.com

“It’s a big challenge coaching now,” said Shaw, who — when he was an NBA rookie in 1988 — needed a quarter and a glass booth if he wanted to fiddle with a phone at the Boston Garden. “There are so many more options for them, so many more things to take their attention away from what you’re trying to do as coach. You have to constantly bring them back in and keep them engaged.” NBA.com

After weeks of speculation over New York Knicks president Phil Jackson's intrigue with luring Denver Nuggets coach Brian Shaw to Madison Square Garden, Denver president Josh Kroenke made it clear to Yahoo Sports on Thursday night: It isn't happening. "Brian has said publicly – and privately to us – that his desire is to be here, and we feel strongly about him as our coach," Kroenke told Yahoo Sports. "I don't foresee a scenario or circumstance where he's going to be anywhere but with the Nuggets next season." Yahoo! Sports

The elimination of Shaw, a long-time Jackson assistant and player with the Los Angeles Lakers, keeps Oklahoma City guard Derek Fisher as the frontrunner for the Knicks job, league sources said. Jackson is waiting for the Thunder's season to end to discuss the opening with Fisher, who has a strong interest in becoming a head coach next season, sources tell Yahoo Sports. Jackson wants a coach whom he can mold and who will run his famed triangle offense. Yahoo! Sports

Brian Shaw reiterated on Tuesday that he’s “happy” coaching in Denver and looking forward to coaching the Nuggets next season. “I said it when all the speculation first started coming out. And that’s all that it is is speculation. I’m happy where I am. I’m looking forward to coaching a healthy, full complement of players with the Nuggets next year and improving what we did,” Shaw told ESPN New York as he was leaving the NBA Draft Lottery in Manhattan. “[I] wish them well in what they’re doing but I’m happy where I am.” ESPN.com

Sources say that in addition to Fisher, the Knicks still have interest in Denver Nuggets coach Brian Shaw but do not currently plan to ask the Nuggets' permission to speak with him. Because league rules restrict teams to offering only cash or draft picks as compensation for coaches, and not players, sources say New York fears it likely can't meet the Nuggets' demands if it were to try to get Shaw out of his contract.

Sources said Jackson also intends to explore whether the Denver Nuggets are in any way amenable to releasing Brian Shaw from his contract in exchange for some form of compensation. Shaw is a longtime Jackson favorite who, after missing out on numerous head-coaching jobs, just completed his first season with the Nuggets, posting a 36-46 record despite numerous injuries to front-line players.
