And I am sure James Dolan regrets paying him $24 million dollars to tank two seasons, get swept in the playoffs and quit on the team.
Humility is a virtue and pride is a vice.
The Lakers will regret making Dantoni their coach
"We would like to play Showtime-type basketball," said D'Antoni.
Does he not realize the Lakers are old minus Dwight..their roster definitely does NOT fit uptempo showtime basketball.
Nash gonna need a wheelchair by the time Doomtoni is done with him
SMH. What a weak minded person. The guy is a quitter. Quit and "resigned" when he was in New York and Phoenix because his teams were not good enough. I lost the little respect I had for MDA after that statement. A flip flop as big as Shaq's shoe. Now I can't wait for that Christmas game against the Lakers, assuming he's still coaching that team by then.

Well the article is far more about Phoenix and how he should have stayed than it has to do with New York. But to be fair, I think most everyone wishes he stayed in Phoenix.
Isn't it funny that he's credited with changing the game, but he sucks when he runs the system.
Huge riot at the Nets - Celtics game, not sure who to root for, but i like it
I almost read "Prigioni regrets coming to New York"
I was pondering why he would say such a thing lol.
"I shouldn't have gone to New York," said D'Antoni.
"I should have stuck in there and battled. You don't get to coach somebody like him [Nash] too many times. It's pretty sacred and you need to take care of it. I didn't."
The parting with the Suns had always been reported as mutual.
"No. It was me," D'Antoni admits now. "I initiated it and I probably shouldn't have."
So its confirmed then that D'antoni is a quitter, and yet this man continues to fail upward.
That sounds like
"I came for the money"
anyway is anyone now happy Melo quit on the team and got him fired
Knicks vs Lakers is coming b4 Xmas games and it will be 1st metting between Woody and pringles all i want is destruction by Knicks of Pringles.
I thought what he was saying is he should have just stayed in Phoenix and continued with that team...basically finishing what he started
It seems like he was more saying he wish he never split apart from Nash than a dig at NY.
Look like it or not...he should have never came to New York, it was bad for him and bad for The Knicks.
He left a title contender for a team that won just 22 games
We had a horrible defense and then hired a offensive minded coach
Many of us questioned the hiring when it went down and I imagine many of his advisers did the same on his end...it really did not make sense for either party.
I do not take it personal at all.
