Donnie Walsh, who was rebuilding the Knicks at a record pace compared to Sather’s years with the Rangers, embraced the media and was committed to doing things his way. When Walsh disagreed with Dolan over the Carmelo Anthony trade, his fate was sealed. Within three months, Dolan kicked a great basketball man and a true gentleman to the curb.But D’Antoni is non-confrontational to a fault. He doesn’t have the appetite to battle management or confront his superstar players when they are mindlessly jacking up shots or not working on defense.
D'Antoni has no ****ing balls. He gets pissed off and sad but never does anything about it and always comes up with ****ing excuses. Stop with the ****ing excuses and fix ****. It's the same GODDAMN problems EVERY GAME. I'm sure he recognizes the problems, he's just scared to do anything about it. Scream at ****ing Carmelo who jacks up the most ridiculous shots. Tell Stoudemire to play some ****ing defense. Coaches like Phil Jackson took **** from no one.
