The #1 Reason D'amnfool S*cks D*ck
50 wins? 50 big "L's" that were not necessary
We don't need 50 wins, but you could have gotten 10-12 more wins which would have put you in the playoffs. A quote from November of this season

Analysis: Duhon has made just 17 of his 72 field-goal attempts this season, after throwing up a goose egg in Wednesday's loss to Atlanta. "Duhon's my point guard," D'Antoni said after Thursday's practice. "He's in a funk and we've got to get him out of it. He'll get out of it. I'm not shedding or throwing people overboard. I'm hanging in there and seeing what we can do." The reality is that Duhon is the best point guard on the team at this point in time. Certainly better than Toney Douglas and Nate Robinson""
Nope, Robinson, Douglas and be far Hughes would have given you better numbers that Duhon. It was not only Nov, but then Dec, then Jan, then just about all of Feb (Duhon scored 24 I believe, but that's for the month).
A starting point guard and I am not blaming Duhon, he didn't make the call to be on the court over 35 minutes until the trade deadline day.
Remember, Hughes pulled the Knicks out of their worst starts in history.
Hughes when starting in December gave the Knicks almost their best December ever.
Hughes was in the top three while starting in the NBA in steals (he still has speed to cover the passing lanes)
Hughes played point and took Cleveland to the Eastern Conference Champs and finals who lost to San Antonio.
Passed by every team in East with amazing point guard play (though not his natural position).
So remember, it was D'Antoni defending DUHON in November and only when we got a broken down T-Mac, with one knee, did he ever, evee, mss a start.
The coach has favorites and riffs with players, so that is what came out of New York this year. What it means next year, some players like Lebron (close friends with HUGHES), will never play for him. Plus Robinson , Jeffries, Curry and Marbury are all putting the coach is wacked in the press.
Going into year number three, the weight ****s, more and more to the coach. Jordan Hill draft, total waste.
