Jackson, who retired from coaching after the 2010-11 campaign, admits that he thought about bossing one of the NBA league’s most high-profiled teams, but wouldn’t want to coach the current squad.

“I wasn’t gonna take that job; that’s for sure,” he told HBO’s “Real Sports” in an interview.

Jackson, who won 11 NBA championship titles with the Bulls and Lakers – worked with several super stars, including Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant – and he believes the stars on the current Knicks team don’t fit together.

The 66-year-old believes that Carmelo Anthony is too selfish at times and he’s style doesn’t work well with Amare Stoudemire.

“They don’t fit together well. (Amare) Stoudemire doesn’t fit well with Carmelo (Anthony),” said Jackson,

“Stoudemire’s a really good player. But he’s gotta play in a certain system and a way.

“Carmelo has to be a better passer. And the ball can’t stop every time it hits his hands. They need to have someone come in that can kinda blend that group together.”

Meanwhile, Jackson admits that he never was contacted by the Knicks, who decided to give interim coach Mike Woodson the job permanently in late May.

Jackson also ruled himself out of coaching the Orlando Magic.
