Lets say this whole season gets locked out... Does Dantoni get an extension or do we let him walk.... I hope it's the latter..

Think of this way...Rick Adelman, a true offensive specialist, would have gotten our team a better record every year that Mike has been here. I don't see why Mike should get an extension even for the "let's stop changing scenery" argument. That went out the window when we traded Gallo, Chandler, and Felton. They aren't on our team anymore, Nate isn't on our team anymore, Lee isn't on our team anymore, none of them. This guy is also stubborn. I don't like his coaching, and him being stubborn should be enough to get a new coach.
Phew. You had me surprised lol.

I'm pretty sure expiring deals expire after a lockout. You get a new contract if you deserve one....MDA doesn't deserve one....I mean.....KG being WIDE OPEN on an inbounds play....late in a one point game....AFTER A TIMEOUT....in the playoffs.
You mean to tell me that dude told NO ONE to check KG? **** his system...dude can't coach. Kind of like Josh McDaniels...great offensive coordinator terrible leader and coach. So did Denver toil over the decision and ponder and wonder, and give him chances? No...they said get the **** out.
Follow suit NYK.
It's what he does offensively that pisses me off more, considering he's meant to be a offensive genius.

I totally agree with you, but his supporters love to spin inconsequential factoids to try to show why his offense isn't pure trash. So I didn't even wanna bring that up.

A coach who doesn't excel at situational coaching and paying attention to the minor details, isn't truly a coach. It sounds like a coordinator who's out of his comfort zone.
My belief is that every contract would not run, from players to coaches. So if a year is locked out, he would still have 1 year remaining on his deal.
You're wrong. Any contracts that expire next June, expire next June. A year is lost. Unless both sides come to the agreement that this year "never took place" and everything is pushed back a calendar year.

I agree with Nuckles, at least with respect to players. However, coaches are not "players" and thus are not, as far as I know, covered by the CBA. They are part of management.
The players' union and the league can agree on terms of a new CBA and those terms may not count a lock out year as part of a contract's length, but this would not affect the employment of a coach any more than the employment of a hot dog vendor at the Garden
I do not know the terms of D'Antoni's current contract, but if the owners choose to lock out the players, unless there is a specific contract term dealing with lock outs or otherwise requiring actual coaching of a team, I do not believe the owners are relieved of their contractual obligations to the coaches.
That's right...MDA might still be getting paid. The coach's association and the player's association are mutually exclusive, right?
