    Question Mark Zeke, Woodson, and Grunwald have dinner...

    Taken from Real GM

    Beginning of the end?
    "Knicks GM Glen Grunwald, assistant coach Mike Woodson and Isiah Thomas—who were teammates at Indiana over 30 years ago—had dinner together, along with some other Knicks employees, at a trendy South Beach restaurant on Thursday, a development sure to raise more questions about the status of coach Mike D’Antoni’s job, the New York Daily News reports.

    The Knicks have lost nine of their last 10 games, including three of four on their just-completed road trip. New York is now just 7-13.

    It’s a widely held notion that Thomas, who was president of the Knicks from Dec. 2003-April 2008, still has the ear of owner James Dolan and is still influential within the organization.

    But, the Daily News writes, D’Antoni is “not in immediate danger of being dismissed as coach. Management appears to be willing to give him a chance to salvage the season with a healthy Baron Davis, who could return for Tuesday’s home game against Detroit.”

    “The interesting thing is that Baron has a reputation as a coach killer. But in this case he could be a coach saver,” one NBA GM told the Daily News.

    SI.com offers a similar report on D'Antoni's status. D'Antoni is "safe for now and the foreseeable future," sources tell this site. Dolan is "remaining patient, and D'Antoni, who is in the final year of his contract, will be given an opportunity to make the most of the Baron Davis experiment that is about to begin."

    LOL, I went to dinner with 2 of my old classmates from college the other night too!

    They all went to Indiana together, yes I hate....hate the fact that Isiah still has ties to our organization, but there really is not much to read here!

    In a trendy restaurant? Doesn't sound professional to leave out the coach and have this gathering there. Maybe that's nothing new though.

    look if Herb Williams (only other coach beside Wooddy who would stay if Dantoni is fired), Melo,Stat and Dolan were in attendence then there could be something to it, but this was more about talking IU memories, now I am certain The Knicks came up, and probably the job Dantoni is doing as well, but far from the focal point.



    Again, I just loathe the ties this man still has to our team....but what are you gonna do!

    It sounds like Dolan is going to keep making excuses on when he's finally going to fire D'Antoni. After Davis comes back I'm sure they'll be another excuse like MDA needs his next trade pieces have time to gel or some bullsh*t. F Dolan.
