Wouldn't surprise me
Would surprise me
Keeps guys who should be playing out of the rotation, has ****ty plays/lack of plays, admits to being fine with bad play, etc.
Is he trying to show he's immune to being fired? Does he secretly hate the Knicks?
Varejo out-rebounding us on pure hustle.....JORDAN SITS.....Now we have Jeffries as our rough and tumbler.....Jacking up 3"s...
PLay Jeremy Lin......We need assists. WTF IS THERE TO LOSE
It's pretty bad when my wife is pissed and she normally just reads books while the game is on but she can still see how bad this coach really is but Dolan can't. She even went as far as apologizing to Lin and Novak on Twitter last night for being stuck behind our sorry @ss coach.
Just to add a few things but mainly what you said.
And I love hearing the post game interviews. Mike D never has an answer. "We just have to get better" "We just have to find a way to hit shots"....excuses for his lack of ability to adjust during games and figure out his players.
Did he ever think that maybe his system involves running the same BASIC play over and over resulting in a predictable offense with terrible spacing and no open shots? These guys are all in the NBA because they call ball, is it a coincidence that they just shoot bad under D'Antoni?
I'll also point out that D'Antoni loves the three ball, but won't play Novak. He rather Amar'e take a three. We mentioned Novak already, but not this specifically. He may very well be trying to screw us over.

If we aren't hitting our 3 point shots we always become stagnant and look lost. It's SIMPLE! You attack the rim, run pick and rolls and if guys are missing open shots like Douglas, Melo, whoever then you bring in other players quickly.
Mike D will keep in a lineup that hasn't scored for 5 minutes straight and wonders why he loses games.
You have to change the lineup when the offense is going no where. Put in anyone. I know Jeremy Lin could have played better as a pure PG than Douglas or Shumpert tonight, they were terrible and telegraphed every pass.
Novak was 3-3 from 3point land against Charlotte, why not put him in?
I dont care if his defense isn't good, we have Tyson Chandler behind him! Put in Novak and get some frigin offense!
It's like Mike D does stuff only until it gets so bad that it's too late and the fans were chanting to do certain things weeks or months before he even thought about it.
That is a bad coach.
He doesn't know his players.
Mike D'antoni is more fortunate than the people who win the NY MegaMillions.In just a couple of seasons Steve Nash disguised the worst coach in NBA history with the facade of a hall of fame coach by winning a couple of MVP awards and carrying his team to the Western Conference Finals.And not only did he make a bum coach look like the second coming of Red Holzman, he allowed the franchise with the dumbest front office in the history of the NBA to give him a multi year contract with a "Can't Fire Me Despite How Much I Suck" clause on it.Despite his putrid coaching, this man is probably the luckiest person on earth.He gets paid more than doctors and lawyers to do 30 percent of his job and embarrass an organization that people pay millions of dollars to support.Allowing this moron to walk away will be the greatest move that this franchise has made since the Patrick Ewing selection in the '85 draft.
You can't successfully score points when you field a team of NON-scorers in the same unit. Offense basically becomes 3 against 5 because our opponents don't respect Jeffries or Chandler so they leave em open and double the crap out of the rest of our "supposed" scorers. That mistake alone KILLS the game for us.
Note to everyone: He's been running that lineup awhile now and there +/- has got to be averaging at least -14. At least. Yesterday might of raised it a bit but not much.After that happens and our players are demoralized when the pick & roll stops working they get stuck and end up chucking covered shots the rest of the game because they have NO OTHER PLAYS to run so THERE'S NO PLAN B.
But you can't play him big minutes if your offense is struggling.
Tyson Chandler can be a force on offense if you have him post up a little bit and actually hit him when he rolls.
I don't know how bad we have to be to get Mike D fired.
