He deserves a strong chance. He's an excellent basketball coach.
This is the 1st year that he's had any talent to work with as NY's head coach; & the Knicks are in strong position to strike for a playoff birth (for the 1st time in whats been too long).
The Suns were a top 3-5 power house each & every year under MDA. In an extremely tough Westen Conf too. The Suns never won a championship, but just look @ how many wins they had under MDA... They were an outstanding team.
Everyone attacks MDA because of our defense, but yet, no one gives him credit for NY having a top 3 offensive attack.
Before the trade, MDA was working with 4 of 5 starters in Felton, Fields, Amare & Mozgov who weren't even with the Knicks last year. As of right now? 5 starters who weren't with us last year. Defense doesn't happen over night. It's a work in progress. It takes time to gel as a defensive unit. Fields is a learning rookie, we have NO Center what so ever & we have 5 new starters. MDA deserves a chance. He's a good coach.
