Knicks owner James Dolan said that D’Antoni felt it was best for the organization if he was no longer coach of the team.
Fan’s patience with the Knicks will end this season, and rightfully so if the team can’t put something together in the playoffs. If Mike D’Antoni can get the Knicks out of the first round, I think he saves his job.
Knicks blogger John Schmeelk gets a few things off his chest, including Mike D’Antoni’s philosophy about fouling, the media’s reaction to Jeremy Lin and the new ticket prices at Madison Square Garden.
Sunday’s less-than-sensational game from Lin won’t do anything to curb the speculation that Baron Davis could eventually take over at point guard.
Davis just took a page out of Rex Ryan’s playbook.
When Shawne Williams bolted for New Jersey, the Knicks’ bench looked downright barren. Thanks to interim GM Glen Grunwald that’s no longer the case.
Jeremy Lin isn’t the only Knicks player to battle his way back to the NBA after being forced to pave his way through the D-League.
It wasn’t the Jeremy Lin show at Madison Square Garden. But the Knicks point guard was happy to put Linsanity on hold Wednesday night.
Apart from all the Jeremy Lin headlines, the Knicks think they are a story, too.
With ‘LINsanity’ still running-wild, the signing of JR Smith, Carmelo Anthony’s return, Baron Davis’ debut and a Knicks loss to the Nets, today was a perfect day for Boomer & Craig to chat with Bernard King.
Jeremy Lin scored 28 points and added a career-high 14 assists as the Knicks took down the defending champion Mavericks, 104-97.
Carmelo Anthony remains out but J.R. Smith and Baron Davis have an outside chance of playing Sunday against the Mavericks.
Carmelo Anthony took part in a morning workout and the New York Knicks will decide on his availability shortly before their game against Detroit.
It seems with each Knicks loss, the drum for Mike D’Antoni’s job beats with renewed vigor.
Carmelo Anthony will not play Friday night when the New York Knicks visit the Miami Heat, who are still waiting to see if Dwyane Wade’s sprained right ankle will allow him to return to the lineup.
