View Full Version : D'Antoni a Goner after 2010?

Seems like there's a lot of pressure on D'antoni to win. Here is a small portion of the article.

If, and this is a really big “IF” the Knicks strike out in this year’s free agency class, Mike D’Antoni will officially be on the hot seat. Two years ago, I sat in front of my T.V. as I watched Donnie Walsh introduce Mike D’Antonio to the New York media. Walsh was so quick to fire a contract towards D’Antoni that he never took the chance to actually see how the name was really pronounced. That’s how bad New York needed D’Antoni, and that’s how bad the Knicks really were. But, fast forward to June 21, 2010, and the Knicks are about to strike gold thanks to Donnie Walsh. Oh, and also thanks to Mike D’Antoni for all the credibility and all that good stuff he brings too, I guess…

The Knicks are positioning themselves to be suitors for the best the free agent class has to offer. Here NY stands, two years later, under the cap, able to sign two max players, a player’s coach on the bench, and the money to spend. Bravo Donnie Walsh, now if only someone would’ve knocked on his door one more time about Brandon Jennings. Let’s not go there.

It wouldn't look good for him to leave after two years of bad records. This season will be the time for D'Antoni to use his offense and make up for the past two years.

Well considering the Roster he has in NY, i dont see how anyone expects him to put out a +500 team.

yeah i can see it,think bigtime fa is only thing that will allow him to keep his job after next season(barring a miracle playoff run by who they got now)

If he ends up with just a decent team instead of a blockbuster allstar team then yeah its a wrap for him.

The Carmello 2011 pipedreams won't work he's reportedly working on an extension this summer.
