Sounds like Dolan really like MDA. Mentioned his name with Wilkins & Brown? Nice!
Also... If MDA would have got fired before his contract was up, it would have happened a long time ago. MDA would have been fired before this year, you know, during the two horrible years if his job were "on the line". But once again, both Dolan & Walsh knew MDA had no chance.
You just proved my points again. "After we attained STAT MDA knew from that moment that his job was on the line & anything short of winning & making the playoffs would cost him his job"
Guess what? MDA won. Guess what? MDA & the Knicks are IN THE PLAYOFFS! Exactly. He's coming back next year for his CONTRACT YEAR. He had us 8 games above .500 before the trade rumors. He won with the pre-trade team & he's winning with this one too. No team experience either. He's coming back ;-)
