    Yeah no worries, not directed at you specifically. It just has seems to me like a lot of people have treated D'Antoni as someone who died and you should not "speak ill of the dead". Yeah he was a nice guy and has some accomplishments, but he was a terrible coach and deserves to be called out. I don't believe in these BS excuses about not enough training camp, or a revolving door roster. Knicks put a genuine full court coach in there and immediately the team dominates their opponents.

    That's been my overwhelming feeling watching these last 4 games.

    For the most part, Opponents driving the lane are getting blocked, their shots are getting contested or they're getting knocked down! It's beautiful.

    Besides his system being flawed imo, his game management left a lot to be desired.

    I don't see a contending team hiring him. He'll get another job but with a bad team.

    Teams know you need defense to win championships and he doesn't preach it.

    That's one of the reasons the Bulls didn't hire him.



    The bottom line is, unless he has HIS type of players, for his system, he is useless.

    All fair posts regarding D'An. He failed to harness a harmony with his team's star. That's not good, so he fell on his sword.

    I can have my opinion that he isn't as much to blame for failures on the floor than the players are, though.

    Knicks have looked dominant in stretches this year. Linsanity and now Woodsanity.

    The biggest constant in the two stretches is the team's defense.

    If they fail verse a team that attacks the lane hard, I will not blame Woodson.

    That may be what the Bulls would like you to believe, but he was in fact their first choice and Jerry Reinsdorf acted like he had sand in his vagina after D'Antoni picked New York. They then had to settle for Vinny Del Negro for two seasons (it's not like they shrewdly hired Thibodeau at the same time the Knicks got 'stuck' with D'Antoni).

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=3393484

    As Mike D'Antoni was set to be introduced as the Knicks' new coach, Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf told the Chicago Tribune that the former Phoenix Suns coach "misled" him in his talks with Chicago, saying he didn't want to coach the Knicks.

    "I'm disappointed in him," Reinsdorf told the Tribune. "I don't know what else we could've done. He chose to go to New York knowing there was a good chance we would make him an offer. If he had really wanted to be in Chicago, he would've waited. Instead, he misled us. It's not the end of the world, but it is somewhat rude."

    Del Negro is setting MDA's plate now, imo.

    I do wonder how the Bulls would look with MDA so far, with the whole Rose ending up there thing...

    D'Antoni would be perfect as a college coach. He can recruit players that fit his system....and worry about outscoring teams. Put him in a mid-major conference and with his one trick pony system he can win 25-30 games a year, win his conference and make the tournament every year.

    Man, I am super curious to see how tonight turns out. More fearful than confident, but still really curious.

    Knicks need to win this if they have any hopes of winning the division.

    Philly has a tough schedule after the Knicks. Celtics then Spurs.

    You serious with that question?

    They would not be the same team we see today...

    The new Paul Westhead... that would be great to watch.

    Lin needs to learn how to deal with full court pressure. He seems to get in trouble with aggressive defenses.

    STAT looks like he's a new man emotionally. He is totally invested and energetic. A pleasure to watch.
