    I'm serious about it, they should get the opportunity to prove themselves and show 'idiots' like me who balme the players more than the coach that they are true world class players and champions and it was all D'Antoni's fault.

    What about that?
    I like it.
    You're too emotional. You have had the chance of seeing and concluding blame for the players. Even though they're statistically better they are performing worse (on offense). That kind of makes the point that the coaching is limited, but to you that means since they're better they must not be playing up to their potential. (or do you think they are not better?)

    We haven't had the opportunity to see things the other way, so until we get that chance you can't make any argument- If they do fire MDA and another coach gets these same players to perform better then what?

    Really though I don't understand what's so difficult. What, we just happened to acquire stars right during their decline? The parts don't fit? Does that mean that they are good but only with better teammates? I don't get it.

    Maybe it's the we traded away everyone and now we don't have a PG excuse? IDK. I mean haven't we struggled with every roster we had no matter who the point was? Why do people forget we struggled with Felton also. We still had glaring deficiencies. We still weren't winning anything.

    Isn't this roster an upgrade? Who are Bibby, TD, Lin, & Shump... not pg's? They looked like viable pg's on other teams, what... not good enough for ours?

    I would prefer Phil Jackson and give him whatever contract he desires.

    If not Jackson then I would look at guys like Patrick Ewing, give him a chance, hall of fame prestige who won't take crap. He has been an assistant coach in Orlando for years, and he could improve Tyson Chandler and Amare's game since he was a Center.

    I would also look at Mike Fratello, whenever I hear him talk as an analyst he has A LOT of insight and says all the right things. Reminds me of how Joe Girardi became so famous since fans loved his insight that he eventually became the coach.

    I would like to see Charles Oakley get a crack at coaching but he should be an assistant first. I wouldn't mind him being on our bench as an assistant to whoever else comes here. Eventhough Oakley is a sour puss about us never having him as a coach.

    Jerry Sloan is always a posibility. He had a bad ending in Utah but Derron Williams refused to listen due to his desire to leave so badly. Utah is better without him now.

    This was from SI.com....Mike Budenholzer, San Antonio. The Suns interviewed the 38-year-old Budenholzer during their search for D'Antoni's replacement. Phoenix eventually settled on Porter, but the buzz has grown around Gregg Popovich's No. 1 assistant. Budenholzer began his career as the Spurs' video coordinator in 1994 and is starting his 13th season as an assistant coach.
    "First of all, Mike has a wonderful understanding of the game," Popovich said. "That's a requirement. He's really good relationship-wise, too. He's secure in his own skin and he's able to tell a player the truth whether the player wants to hear it or not."
    Elston Turner, Houston. Like Budenholzer, Turner's name began to circulate near the end of last season. Turner was Rick Adelman's assistant for six seasons in Sacramento before following him to Houston. He served as Adelman's chief game strategist and organized the Rockets' game plans during the 2008 playoffs. A tenacious defender in eight seasons as a player, Turner is considered a strong communicator who has embraced Adelman's read-and-react offensive system.

    If we can't get any of these guys I mentioned then see what Mike Woodson can do.
    Perfect post, totally agree. END THREAD.

    I say give Latrell Sprewell an opportunity.He has more championship experience than D'antoni and he would probably be the only coach in the league that would have the courage to strangle Amar'e and Melo whenever they stop playing defense.

    Sounds like he'd be a good mix with Ewing. They sound like great-minded assistant coaches, but I can't see either as head coaches.

    Ewing and JVD are never coming back.
    I like the idea of Sloan coaching and Flip Saunders may be a possibility. I'm not big on Flip, but he seems to have a more balanced offense then the jack up 3's that D'Antoni couches. **** man, if you're going to give it to Flip why not just give it to Herb Williams. I don't see any really good alternatives.

    Look for Stan Van Gundy to be available after Dwight leaves. But my vote has to go to Phil Jackson, I believe if he comes back its to the knicks.

    No way do I want Stan Van Gundy. Orlando jacks up a lot of threes. I don't know if it's because of Lin, but at least now there's not a lot of threes and most of them are good shots.
