    Default LOL: Mike D'antoni ask for contract extension

    The coaching carousel in Minnesota took an unlikely turn as [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] was being thrown off and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] was preparing to jump on.
    The ride operator, Timberwolves GM [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], made a run at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    Talk about a waste of time. Coach K once turned down a chance to go to the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and coach [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in his prime. Did Kahn really think that he could get Krzyzewski to leave his [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] kingdom? He did.
    "He tried to get him," said one Kahn confidante.
    Kahn was looking for a miracle or two. The other miracle is turning [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] into a first-rate [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] point guard. As he showed over the last two seasons in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]' No. 1 draft pick of 2009 can't shoot consistently or beat people off the dribble. That was versus inferior competition in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Now he's supposed to be able to do those things against the top players in the world?
    No wonder Krzyzewski isn't running to the Twin Cities anytime soon.
    "It's unfortunate that Ricky Rubio is now going to be the face of that franchise, because he just isn't good enough as a player," said one NBA head coach. "They're doing that kid a great disservice."
    Kahn wants Rubio to help change the T-Wolves into a team that plays small, pushes the ball and goes with an entirely new, up-tempo look. While contemplating Rambis' replacement, he gave [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] serious thought, based on what he did with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. But it never got to the point where he asked the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for permission to talk to their head coach.
    Too bad for D'Antoni.
    Entering the final season on his contract, he hasn't been able to get a one-year extension from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. If the T-Wolves had called, D'Antoni might have gotten his year. Or quite possibly, he might have gotten his freedom. With [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] out of the picture, D'Antoni has very few allies in the Garden these days.
    "Mike asked for a year and the Knicks haven't told him anything," said a team source this past week.

    Meanwhile, Kahn is going ahead with his plan to bring in Bickerstaff, the veteran NBA coach and executive, and father of J.B. Bickerstaff, a highly regarded Timberwolves' assistant. The plan is for Bernie to hand the job off to his son in a year or two.
    But friends of J.B. have been urging him this past week to leave the franchise, because it's never going to get better with Kahn in charge. That's hard to argue, looking at his body of work since assuming GM duties in 2009.
    The Rambis hire was a disaster from day one. Drafting Rubio and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] with back-to-back picks was absurd. Paying [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] $20 million last summer was baffling. We'll stop there. You get the picture.

    Atleast he tried... He tried.

    If Dolan re signs Mike D then we know the old Dolan is officially back in full view but I don't think Dolan wants to get killed by the media. He would rather the blame fall to someone else....Glen Grunwald?(Dolan puppet)

    Dolan is not going to re-sign Mike D. Dolan is going to can Mike D cause Mike D was a Walsh move.

    I have no problem with firing Mike D but Dolan will bring in Isiah as coach/team president and then we're ****ed.
