The Knicks’ sluggish start has drawn comparisons to what the Miami Heat went through last season, but Mike D’Antoni isn’t buying it.
“Yeah, we’re just like them," D'Antoni said sarcastically.
Miami started out 9-8 last season before finishing with a 58-24 record before losing the Finals in six games. The Knicks, who started out 3-8 last season, were 2-4 heading into Friday’s game against the 0-6 Wizards.
Comparisons between the Heat and Knicks picked up steam last February once Carmelo Anthony was traded to New York. But the combination of Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh has already reached the NBA Finals.
