    Baron Davis might save his job


    If Davis stays healthy we can make the playoffs and we'll see.

    If we don't go past the first round playoffs with a decent regular season, then Mike D still gets fired.

    I we are below .500 by allstar break, Mike D SHOULD be fired.

    everyone expected this Knick team to be the 3rd or 4th best team in the East and the coaching staff has been terrible.

    Thought the thread was about our team gelling or BD's return

    While I'm on the fence about Dantoni, this was not his loss, The Suns didnt out play us tonight, we simply beat ourselves!

    We missed a ton of free throws, had that one possession where we allowed this horrible rebounding team to grab 2 offensive rebounds at the end of the game, Stat was runnin over people on offense and getting blown by on D and Melo blew two wide open layups.....end result we lose by 3....can't blame the coach!

    The dumbest thing we can do in a season where we are lacking continuity is to bring in a new coach!

    All brining in a new coach at this point would do is add to the excuses about a bad season!

    We are going to gel! Mark my words!

    Look if we finish at the bottom half of the playoffs and get swept out or handled pretty good in the first round, then Dantoni is a goner!

    I don't think BD is going to save us, and i hope your right about us gelling.Antoni is like an old car, you fix one thing and something else breaks, it's becoming the snowball effect.

    I'm sure Antoni is banking on Davis to buy him another 5 years of coaching in the NBA like Steve Nash bought him the last 10 years. He is a joke of a coach and I really don't have fun watching them play anymore.

    I spend more time yelling at the coach and typing my frustrations on this board than I do enjoying the game. My wife can't even sit in the same room with me and she used to watch all their games even during the worse of times. BUT, this is WORSE than those days because at least back then we had HOPE, now we have good playing and a coaching staff that couldn't get an ALL-STAR team to score more than 85 points in a game. Coaches are supposed to make stars better, MDA kills our stars.

    Hell....half of our opponents we played so far this season have been missing their stars and we still got smoked. I'm at the point I wish I had Time Warner Cable so I wouldn't have to subject myself to this garbage @ss coach. I swear it ruins the next 48 hours for me. It's one thing to play good and lose, but to watch a coach run some of the best superstars in the league into the ground really pisses me off beyond belief.

    All throughout my life basketball coaches have clamored for talented big men in order to put them down in the paint and positively effect the outcome of the games they play in. Both offensively and defensively.

    WHEN DID THIS CHANGE?

    What other coach in the NBA has their bigs 15ft away from the basket for almost the entire game?


    If someone could answer these questions I'd really appreciate it.

    Maybe the game has passed me by.

    i hope Mike D doesnt cause your marriage to be in jeopardy lol jk but I fel your frustration, i have been yelling at my screen for years and have been barking at people to see this guy as a fraud of a coach.

    We might go on a winning streak randomly and start winning but when it comes to playoff time, Mike D has failed. Even with his great Suns teams, they could never do anything special in the playoffs.
    Without defense you will never win a ring, and when your known as an offensive "genius" and your offense is terrible with two all stars, then your terrible at coaching and over rated.

    This. Dolan won't fire him. The only chance of Mike D leaving is by running out of contract.....he'll go to Minnesota or Houston next and lead them to the Playoffs......embarrasing the Knicks franchise even further.

    well first off the New York Rangers are doing well so they will bring the revenue excitement and leadership to keep Dolan happy, Knicks can take a back seat.

    second dantoni stays the rest of the season, no its not to run out the contract but it is the perfect way to soil his record by piling more losses, this is what the point of Larry brown when he is here. when you dont perform well under Dolan he will not fire you to make him look bad no, he will hang you out to dry to incur your own self defeats and make you look bad not on his terms
