Knowing James Dolan though he'd put D'Antoni in charge of D and have Brown focusing on offensive sets.

Lawrence Frank is the opposite. He makes fantastic adjustments, specifically pre game.

I think in Boston he might be fine because he's working now for Rivers, the players already know him, and they are a very veteran bunch already set in their ways. A new team? Star heavy? I don't like it.

Keep D'Antoni, bring in a good assistant. Then in a year go talk to Doc Rivers unless things are 100% better. THAT makes sense to me.

I thought the consensus was always that Keuster was the mastermind behind their defense?

And so the filling of 5 months of offseason news with made up rumors and speculation, by the New York Post and New York Daily News, begins.

I better run and get that paper right away. Tell me more, Isola!

Did you watch the Knicks this season ?
In many games they have played like they don't care.
I remember them playing hard only against tough opponents like the Celtics,Heat or something like that.When shitty teams come to town they often show no hustle,no will,no energy.

I would give a shot to D'Antoni with a good defensive assistant for next season.
But if we continue to fail against smaller teams and play good but without result against good teams then he needs to go.

I don't understand the concept of Knicks "trying" to bring a defensive-minded assistant. D'Antoni is just a employee, all the Knicks have to do is hire one and tell D'Antoni to use him.

Walsh probably won't give him the extra year to take away his lame duck status, and he'll have another strike against him for when they finally get to the decision of whether to fire him or not. Considering how much he gets paid in NY i'd think he wouldn't want out to go somewhere else.

I think he would still get his money even if he gets fired.

Also I think even D'Antoni knows he won't be here after next season.
Nothing is 100% sure but I'm pretty confident he won't be here in 2012-2013 season.

Yeah, I was just making a point. You really don't want to force an assistant coach down the head coach's throat. D'antoni is not just an "employee". He's not an office clerk. He's your $5 million a year Head Coach.

I believe MDA will be here one more year. No extension. But I'm not convinced he will definitely be gone after that.
