    knicks had a little flurry of hope with linsanity, but it seems to be dead now, teams watch tape/scout and adjust, we will see if he has the ability to re-adjust...
    sixers go into the garden and spank the knicks, 3 straight now.
    need the lakers to beat boston tonight.
    the emergence of turner has wall lovers asking who?
    the bridge between #1 and #2 was massive last year, and it is this year too, just in turners direction this season...
    with hawes set to return, im hype.

    in all honesty, that trade could work out for GSW, they can finally let Curry run the team, Bogut can get the boards (if hes healthy) & who knows Jackson might still have some shot in him..see what happens.

    D’Antoni Out, Woodson In As Knicks’ Interim Coach

    HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – Mike D’Antoni won’t get the chance to fix whatever ails the New York Knicks. He resigned as coach Wednesday and is being replaced on an interim basis by his assistant and former Hawks head coach Mike Woodson, as first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports and since confirmed by sources to NBA.com.

    With rumors rampant and the Knicks falling out of the playoff mix with an ugly 0-for-March stretch — they’ve lost six straight games — something had to give. D’Antoni leaves in what was reportedly a mutual parting of the ways. But there were rumblings that D’Antoni had lost the respect of the players in his locker room in recent weeks.

    The glow of Linsanity and Jeremy Lin‘s rise to fame was washed away in Carmelo Anthony‘s struggles and growing discomfort in a system that didn’t feature the All-Star forward the way he was used to being featured. D’Antoni’s departure marks a major mood swing for the Knicks, who just last month this time were the talk of the league and the global sports world with Lin as the centerpiece.

    They won seven straight games, got back to .500 and did almost all of that with Anthony out injured. But they suffered losses in eight of their next 10 games and simply could not get Anthony, Lin, Amar’e Stoudemire and the rest of their key players on the same page.

    TNT’s David Aldridge weighs in with even more details on a rift between D’Antoni and Anthony that might have led to the “mutual parting of the ways”:


    A source with knowledge of the discussions says D’Antoni and Knicks chairman James Dolan mutually agreed to terminate D’Antoni’s job with New York after the two met this morning.

    D’Antoni, the source said, had been advocating that the Knicks attempt to trade Anthony to the New Jersey Nets for guard Deron Williams, a deal D’Antoni believed would be beneficial for both franchises. But Dolan categorically declined that request, and the “conflicting visions” between the owner and head coach about Anthony meant there was no way forward.

    D’Antoni had hoped the Knicks’ inspired and winning play with Lin as the centerpiece — while Anthony and Stoudemire were injured — would convince Dolan the Knicks could win without Anthony. Bringing Williams from the Nets would also have eases the burden on Lin, D’Antoni believed, allowing Lin to settle into a three-guard rotation.

    D’Antoni asked for the meeting with Dolan after his relationship with Anthony had deteriorated sharply in recent days. He will be paid the remainder of the $6 million he’s due in this fourth and final year of his $24 million contract.

    Woodson has plenty of experience trying to turn around a struggling program. He spent six years in Atlanta, using a star-friendly system that helped Joe Johnson and, later, Al Hoford earn multiple All-Star nods.

    Woodson was criticized for his “Iso Joe” offense that relied almost exclusively on Johnson either making or creating plays in half-court sets, but he had great success with that style. The Hawks made three straight playoff appearances in his final three years with the team and rang up the fourth-best season in the franchise’s Atlanta history with a 53-29 record in 2009-10.

    “Woody’s on the hot seat again,” a league source said and then laughed. “That’s just the way he likes it.”

    Woodson is also known as a defensive specialist, something the Knicks knew they needed in August when they hired Woodson to join D’Antoni’s staff.

    He proved in Atlanta that he was capable of working under duress, as the Hawks endured on- and off-the-court drama from the moment he took over until the day he found out his contract would not be renewed. Woodson’s first Hawks team won just 13 games, the worst record in the league during the 2004-05 season.

    The Hawks won 26, 30, 37, 47 and 53 games in the seasons after that, making it to the Eastern Conference semifinals in each of Woodson’s last two seasons.

    But whatever challenges he faced in Atlanta, he never faced the sort of attention and pressure he’ll see now with the Knicks, even if only on an interim basis.


    think dude was gonna be gone anyways at the end of the season..think Lin was gonna win his job..but then Melo cameback and fucked everything up..so i think he just threw the towel in.
