You are a fool and its easy to tell this. The knicks with a different coach and the same players would have proven that they were a better team than the 30+ wins these past two seasons. Mike D'antoni was a bad choice when he was 1st selected and is still a bad coach... have you seen Knick games these past two years? Have you seen him do anything that you can say was a good move... how bout fouling when up by 3 and less than 10 seconds to go... NOPE he never did that. How bout doubling big men when they were using David Lee in the low post ... NOPE he never did that.. how about utilizing a consistent starting 5.. NOPE he never did that. Defense.. NOPE he never did that.. How about coaching Team Rebounding... NOPE he never did that... What is the job of a Head Coach again?
You go around labelling people D'antoni dickhuggers, it's pretty sad. If you had been reading this forum actively and took notice of people's opinions you'd realize most of the people you're calling dickhuggers have been bashing D'antoni several times over the last 2 years. However he does have a much higher level of talent available and players that fit his offensive run and gun style better now than ever. I would prefer a lot of coaches over D'antoni but guess what, they're not available.
In fact there are very few coaches who have been available recently who I think would do a better job than D'antoni. Possibly Byron Scott, but you look at the talent he had in NO and how disappointing that team has been and questions arise.
Bottom line is we are stuck with D'antoni for at least half of this season. Why not think positive about it? Whining about it now when we haven't even seen how this group is going to play seems pointless. Our team is 75% revamped, none of us have any idea how it's going to turn out. Judging on the talent of individual players it's easy to have optimism though.
If we get to November with a .400 record I'll be calling for D'antoni's head too, until then, bitching about it is wasting your breath. He ain't going anywhere.
I hope to god we get at least the 6 seed because, NO WE CAN'T BEAT MIAMI at this point. Or Boston.. Orlando might be possible. Throw Randolph on Howard and stop Howard now we are better than the Magic.
Dude, you are a hater and it's easy to see by all the ample evidence you spew on this forum...maybe BP should try capping your mouth next. 200 million gallons of poorly written garbage has spewed since you joined. You are living in the past, prejudging our new team and not allowing D'ant a chance to coach a decent team. Hate...hate...hate. What were you raped by a white dude with a mustache? Sodomized by a Pringle can perhaps?

The Knicks have a deep roster and an excellent bench.
Realize that at this point if Miami wants to make the playoffs LeBron/Wade/Bosh are each going to have to play 42 minutes a game
My point is, and still remains relevant that you guys are making all these excuses for D'antoni when no other coach for the Knicks have been given these many chances. I have seen a few people critizice D'antoni but only a few. the love you dickhuggers give him is incredible. The fact that you guys don't want to see the sense i'm making speaks volumes about you. I want the knicks succeed. I want ot see a championship, but I also know that with this guy as coach that won't happen. I know how portland fans felt now when Rick Adelman as coach. The fact that we hve a revamped lineup means nothing if the same philosophy is being taught. I like Felton, liked him since his days with the TarHeels, Anthony Randolph, in a few years will be seen as the prize of this 2010 off season, and Amare will hopefully be as good as he was last season.. with all that being said, D'antoni style of coaching will lead this team down the same road its been on in the past. There is no reason to wait for November to want the mans head to roll if he's been performing like shyt for 2 years.
Ok Since you guys want to dwell on the past of what D'antoni did and his system and whatever the fvck you call it.. I wanna show you how ridiculous that is... Idiot d'antoni dickhuggers will of course not be able to follow the logic.. but hey what can i say about u fvcks
So this is the logic a d'antoni dickhugger uses... D'antoni was good in the past, he did well, only thing is he came here and he didn't have the players he needed to run his "system" but Now he has his players and so now he will do good. That is 100% akin to saying Eddy Curry did well in 06-07 because he shot over 1000 times, 58% field goals, 20 points a game...hey then i guess all Eddy Curry needs is to have the ball to shoot 1000 times again and he'll be another offensive beast. Shiiit ya know what thats what i'll be running with until D'antoni gets fired... Eddy Curry can be good as long as he just shoots the ball 1000 times... Give Eddy Curry the ball... Don't hate on Curry... I'll use the D'antoni dickhugger logic... fvckin idiots
Bench: Miller (6th man), Ilguaskus, J-Howard
Appears the roster is taking shape. They need a vet PG (would Alston or White Chocolate fill the void)? They also have their 3 second round picks (Pittman, Varnado, Butler). I see Jon Scheyer is playing on their Summer league team.
Right now, if they stick to a tight 8-man rotation they should be fine.
Obviously, they will be weak at PG. Wade or Lebron will have to handle the duties at times. BUt, they'll dominate 2nd stringers b/c (most likely) Wade or Lebron will be in the game at all times.
This will probably wear them down by June....
They basically need 1 vet PG, a vet wing player and 1 more big from being a complete team.
And the holes they have aren't exactly rocket science to fulfill.
I still have hope for our Knicks and am relishing having them becoming a true contender. But we, and the league, have our work cut out.
Look at what MIA already achieved as swiftly as people were still exhaling after saying they wouldn't be able to fill anything resembling a real rotation anytime soon.
Th scary issue is that as these Veteran Ho's keep flocking to Pat The Rat, he is assembling an entirely separate brand and dream, within the NBA.
The players aren't just competing in the NBA and contending, they are joining a historic juggernaut and tagging along to legendary immortality.
Bull**** to me, but I sense that is what is starting to happen, and as these guys partake, it makes it more n more powerful a concept.
My nba prediction is the same as it was even bfore the recent signings:
MIA is essentially going to make mince meat of the league this year. It's going to take a dispersion of the 2011 FA class and a year for nba teams to enact vengeance and respond (us!!!!).

There isn't a snowball's chance in hell that we can take Miami right now. Now, if we go out and get a CP3 or Melo, that might be a different story depending upon what we give up, but right now not a chance.
miami is like SHOWTIME back inda 80's
We can't blame the guy, for knowing his position.
