After reading this thread I am now convinced that Mike D'antoni is the best coach for the Knicks.Let us no longer call him "Celebrity" coach D'amphony, but "Potentially Gifted" coach D'antoni.Give the poor man a break! He is in a similar situation as our president, meaning, he isn't as terrible as his predecessor but isn't as effective as the one who was in charge when things were going good.And just because Mike D'antoni hasn't been as successful coaching the Knicks as Jeff Van Gundy was doesn't mean that with a cast of young and highly talented players he wouldn't take the Knicks to the promised land.Did anyone really expect D'antoni to win 40 games with the one dimensional Al No Sharrington, Larry "I Can't Stop Taking Bad Shots" Hughes, Chris Duhorrible, and Nate Robinson --who possesses the skills of an NBA player but has the attention span of a Pomeranian?
I am appalled by the Mike D'antoni hatred that resides in the minds and hearts of many Knick fans.The average Knick fan should be building a Mike D'antoni statue in front of MSG for him choosing to coach the Knicks over the much talented Chicago Bulls.I admire a man who'd rather go with the less attractive girl to the prom over the prom queen.Mike D'antoni could very well be part of the greatest Cinderella story to ever take place in sports history and Knick fans are ready to send him his walking papers without giving him one opportunity to prove himself?
I'm sure that there were many Laker fans who wanted to crucify Pat Riley before he won his titles with the "Show Time" Lakers.And I'm also sure that there were a lot Bulls fans from the city of Chicago who doubted Phil Jackson's ability to coach the Bulls past the Pistons in the playoffs.The bottom line is that great coaches don't evolve over night and if it was up to Knick fans to be in charge of front office decisions the Knicks would probably be coached by Ronald Mcdonald or Lady Gaga.Knick fans need to appreciate what they have now and allow Mike D'antoni the chance to at least coach their team to the playoffs.

Look up the stats with Darko on the T wolves averaging 25 min a game and then look at Jeffries on the Knicks when he averaged 28 min a game.
Darko's numbers are clearly better with more ppg, rebounds, assists, etc.
Jordan Hill on the rockets at 16 min per game had better numbers than Jeffries did on the Knicks with 28 min per game! How is that possible?
The fact is that Jeffries was less productive than Hill and Darko could have been.
I'm neither...I am a man. (see I can answer a direct question unlike u)Funny that you keep using my style and trying to call me a woman when it is you who is clearly ovulating and bleeding all over this thread. Ah well, I don't blame you for not even trying to debate me...you are outclassed and your frail osteoporosis ridden bones can't take the beating. Go grab a cane, tampon and a clue you over the hill cornball.
Jimqueef the Style Thief living up to his lame name but trying to jock my steelo as his own. Go ahead dude, you can rent my swagger, I got more then enough.
Living here in Illinois is so hard. Bulls talking of stealing Melo from under our nose, and now this conversation regarding coaching.
Why couldnt the Bulls hire DAntoni when we did? I think the Tom Thibidoux era in Chicago will prove more fruitful than Mike "NO-D" 'Antoni.
That being said, we need to build this team in a manner that fits his style. Amare cant play much D, but he can sure move. If we get Melo and a true point like Paul, we stand a much better chance at success.
Quote me...we will land Chris Paul before we get Melo!
Quote me more......D'Antoni must adjust his style slightly for the Knicks to succeed.
Darko's numbers, I believe, are due in large part to the situation he was put in. In Memphis Darko had Marc Gasol and Gay and Mayo taking away a lot of the defenses' attention. In Minnesota, Jefferson and Love were two guys in the post the defense was forced to keep an eye on, again opening Darko up for easier looks. The Knicks, on the other hand, only had Lee to take away the eyes off of Darko down-low...so the numbers are a bit skewed.
I agree on Hill though.
Frail with no force but he is older than Yoda
It's over...you cant stand my heat
Could not stay on topic this is your 2nd defeat
Don't make me pull a hat trick
I'll smack a bitch quick you all mixed up like Bisquick
My pimp game is too tight
Mid-west cornballs pulling a knife at gun fight
You out classed and got smashed
I got fresh **** you got cashed...
Like a bowl of chronic I ended you with just a few hits
I shatter your psyche causing convulsions and fits
Midlife crisis, elevated estrogen and a pair of bitch tits
Female persona, betting against the Knicks you know I own ya
Call me Dolan...you hurt, mad and your vagina is swollen
I'm like the Juggernaut when I get rolling
I'm unstoppable when you can't even begin
My word play hit you hard like straight bottles of gin
It's another clear win...for the champ
You a chump and about as bright as a broken lamp
BTW, you once again bit my style because I was freestyling on kats last year...
Can we win with Mike D'Antoni?
I believe we can not win a championship with Mike,however we can win a playoff series or two.I think Mike is a great coach and has a great system that entertains with fast break dunks and a flurry of three-pointers but i don't think this system will work with these type of players. I think we should follow the Magic's system and the way they utilize their three-point shooters and slashers . I think we are one rebounding center and legit Sg away from being an elite team.
Felton could be Nelson
Sg = our hole
Gallo could be Lewis
Amare our go to scorer
C = our hole
someone please call the suicide prevention hotline!!!
