    Yes this thread was a reaction to the playoff loss but it didn't make the observations any less true. D'ant couldn't adjust or manipulate the game plan to get the W. We're still seeing a lot of D'ants system but it is just being run more effectively, efficiently. We would not make the playoffs with dan't and we would not win a playoff game with D'ant and you can point to the 2010-2011 season as proof.

    I had been calling for MDAs head since the beginning of the 2010-2011 season. That team played absolutely no defense at all. I mean NONE. It was a sham against the basketball. Most teams at least try to play defense. That team didnt try, at all.

    Then Moz and Randolph are both relegated to the bench. I could see if we had a C that was better, but we didnt. Guys got no burn until Moz goes nuts against Detroit. It was at that point that I knew this cat had no clue what he was doing.

    It was all about his way and his system. He couldnt adjust to the players he had. It was like he didnt even know the talent on his own roster.

    This year starting off at 8-15 sealed his fate with me. No coach in the nba takes that much talent and ruins it. STAT, Melo & TC and you're sitting at 8-15?

    MDA was a joke...

    It's like a dark cloud has been lifted, from over the Garden.

    He was a terrible judge of talent vs playing time. He never developed guys. Never gives guys a chance.
    no defense...and no set offense. No calling numbers...everyone had the green light, when sometimes you have to get the ball to your moneymakers.
    hate how he never calls time outs when your guys could use one.
    At the end...they were losing close games, because he had no clue how to close out games.
