Also your right he hasn't had time to work with this team but his coaching has been spotty all season. He consistently made weird roster adjustments in game. D'antoni has a known aversion to calling time outs when the other team is getting hot and the knicks are playing cold. Or the fact that he said to Donnie the knicks should release Brewer because he doubted he would play him when right now the team is in need of parameter defense. Or maybe tell your guys to stop arguing missed foul calls in the paint and get into position on the transitional defense.
That equals a coach who isn't very good.
Now are all the problems coaching? .....Nope
We have roster issues as well, that coaching won't fix. We took a step back with the Melo trade in the short term in order to be stronger in the longterm. So you got to be hopeful but D'antoni needs to step his game up as well because good coaching is what the Knicks need.
