Unfortunately, the problem is with us trading Melo. Knicks ownership, which keeps making terrible decision after terrible decision, will never make the right choice. To add on top of that, Mark Warkentein is represented by Creative Arts Agency (CAA), the same group that orchestrated the Melo trade. There is no way that group would admit failure and let that trade happen.
No, D'Antoni will be fired soon enough. Knick fans will rejoice and the Knicks will show a slight improvement with another coach but will always come up short because the roster is severely flawed. Fans will keep complaining and eventually that coach will be fired too. It's an endless circle of futility but like idiots we will keep giving Dolan money and keep watching Knick games and keep hoping someday it will change but will always end up disappointed and frsutrated and looking for something or someone to blame.
