You have two options and only two.
A) You fire D'Antoni and hire a veteran coach that will run a more traditional offense
B) You keep the coach, and hope the current roster can turn it around, or make the trades to appease the coach
If you choose option A, you spend a lot more money (which to me isn't so bad because of this new time warner deal). If you choose option B, you are still setting yourself up for failure in this season. No team that has ever come together mid-season won a championship that very year. Correct me if I am wrong on this one please.
Forget winning the finals.. I don't think any have even made the finals after a losing record halfway through the season.
