Re: Knicks brass may try to force Mike D'Antoni to bring on a defensive-minded assistant
Great idea, but didn't Phoenix ask him to do the same thing and he re-signed lol...
I think he's smart enough to realize he's not a defensive coach and needs one to win playoff games.
Mike Brown and Lawrence Franks are two recent coaches who could be great additions, but would they leave their respective jobs (ESPN analyst and Celtics assistant/potential college coach) to be a guy who will have to teach all the defense on a team. Honestly, I think it depends on the person. If you want to coach basketball but don't want the pressure of being head coach, then assistant is perfect.
