When you do all of that, and then ask a powerless coach on the last year of his contract to rein in the egos and make everything hum like the engine of one of his players' Bentleys, then shame on you again. On top of leaving D'Antoni with insufficient organizational clout to give Anthony the tough coaching he needs -- and, according to a person who has observed much of Anthony's career, the tough coaching he really wants -- the Knicks also pulled D'Antoni's biggest supporter out from under him by alienating former team president Donnie Walsh, leading to his departure into an undefined and absentee role as a consultant. There were players in the Knicks' locker room -- plenty of them, starting with Amar'e Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler, Baron Davis, Jared Jeffries and others -- who came to New York specifically to play for D'Antoni, were more galvanized than ever in their support for him and respect him regardless of his contract or job status. But the modern NBA star, for better or worse, equates power and respect with money and contract length. So you tell me how D'Antoni, without job security or the man that hired him having his back, was going to tell Anthony that the way he's played basketball for his entire life wasn't going to fly anymore.
Once again, it all falls back on Dolan and his idiocy.

Knicks chairman James Dolan did not field questions at a Wednesday night news conference but did acknowledge to reporters that Mike Woodson is replacing D'Antoni for the rest of the season. Amid widespread speculation that Jackson is Dolan's No. 1 target for the job, one source close to the situation told ESPN.com on Wednesday that Jackson would likely be "fascinated" by the prospect of "how the Knicks' (current) personnel would fit in his system."

The source also said that Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin was on Jackson's radar last season when Lin was a rookie with the Golden State Warriors, which fits with Jackson's longstanding preference for big ballhandlers in his backcourt.

Too many turnovers, as usual.

Knicks look good, but it just may be a case of the Blazers being terrible this game.

Yeah, D'Antoni was the one who made him shoot less than 40% every game despite the fact he was crying for the ball in the post on isos DESPITE D'Antoni not wanting that. Come the [inappropriate/removed] on.

Oh, and Jared Jeffries definitely gone in July now. Damn.

But we're beating up on a bad team since they're actually trying now, yay? Fully expect the effort to disappear though.
