Lawrence Franks issues in NJ in the latter were a team that quit on him,injuries, and also He was young. For NBA head coach Frank was like 33-34 years old.

The guy is short and looks like a lil kid with receding hairline,but hemakes great adjustments and is perfect for a respected intimidating coach(Rivers)

People forget Doc got fired when Orlando made that crappy run of losing games.

The Knicks had their first winning season in 10 years. D'Antoni isn't going anywhere. A defensive assistant coach will help a lot. No need to fire D'Antoni, at least not now.

If he won't accept a defensive assistant I don't see what's to keep them from firing him. It's not like he's done an amazing job and is irreplaceable. Team could be better off if they hired away a guy like Lawrence Frank from the Cs as his replacement.

But I will agree with those that say if D'Antoni is replaced the new coach needs to be not only a better defensive coach but also a big personality that can deal with egos, because getting the most out of the Knicks may well involve forcing Melo to change his attitude towards defense as well as sharing the basketball. I remember when Doc Rivers came here, he had to bench Pierce to get him playing the way he wanted. Will the new coach have the guts to bench Anthony if/when he doesn't conform, and will management back that coach up?

Say he comes back next year, and the Knicks win 55 games. Now they have to resign him, and that would basically be the nail in the coffin of their title hopes.

So finish it out. If D'Antoni refuses to take a defensive coach, then what?

Seriously I'm not a guy to wish for somebody to get fired, but by know with Mr. Pringles being a coach in the league for years, Team owners have to know this guy will get u nowhere. He brings the Golden State Warriors and Suns mentalility to the playoffs. By now u know he does'nt want to change so find a replacement. U can keep adding good players to the Knicks all u want but with Mr. Pringles coaching they are going to play like the Globetrotters.

I agree with your post, but did Doc bench Pierce during the losing season before KG and Ray got there?

No. If my memory serves me correctly he was yanked during a game in Rivers' first year as coach. Pierce and Rivers were fine after the first season together.
