New York Knicks Coach Mike D'Antoni Officially Resigns [Details Inside]



ESPN reports:

Mike D'Antoni has resigned as coach of the New York Knicks, sources confirmed to ESPN Wednesday.

The Knicks (18-24) have hit a tailspin in the last two weeks, losing six straight and seven of eight to fall six games below .500 and into a tie for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

New York had high expectations coming into this season with Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler on the roster. After struggling through the first six weeks, though, the Knicks went 8-1 in a nine-game stretch in mid-February on the strength of point guard Jeremy Lin, who electrified both the fan base and his teammates after being claimed off waivers in late December.

But once Anthony returned from injury and the Knicks' recent slide began, the discontent from it created a gulf between Anthony and D'Antoni.

The New York Post reported in Wednesday's editions that Anthony would welcome a trade, which he denied at the team's morning shootaround. The report also said Anthony was unhappy in part because he believed D'Antoni and interim general manager Glen Grunwald do not trust him.

Anthony denied that, too.

"I don't want to be traded," Anthony said Wednesday morning. "I don't know where that foolishness came from, so let's put a cap on that and make (sure) this the last time I hear about that."

He added: "I support Mike 100 percent regardless of what is going on, as far as us losing basketball games. We all need each other right now and this is the best time to come together and stick with one another. ... There's a lot of things being said out there about Mike, about myself, and it's just a bunch of nonsense right now."

I like how n***** say they are uncoachable, acting like Stoud wasn't getting coached by D'Antoni when he was on the Suns. Melo plays it cool but he has a massive ego, he knows he's a good player but he refuses to demand the ball because he wants everyone else to say it for him.

their is no coach, that can coach Melo!
Phil ain't gonna change s***! All these dudes in the
knicks are uncoachable.
Phil should come coach the Clippers if anything!!!!
Big paychecks for knicks players but no teamwork
and no defense? The Nuggets would be the s*** outta the
knicks all day everyday. So what does that say? LOL
