Linsanity sure was fun, but the Knicks aren't ever going to win a first/second round playoff series with Jeremy Lin running a D'Antoni offense.
A championship-caliber D'Antoni offense requires an elite point guard that can create for himself/others in the paint. Oh, and he needs to be able to do that against great defensive teams that have film and scouting reports. Lin is certainly not that guy today and, it seems to me, hasn't shown that he can be that guy anytime soon.
It was just a couple of months ago when it seemed so obvious that the Knicks were in desperate need of a top-notch PG, and that Baron Davis was not going to be a long-term solution. Jeremy Lin's emergence is inspirational but, unfortunately, not transitional.
We need an approach to offense that plays to the great pieces the Knicks currently possess (Anthony, Stat, Chandler). Rumor has it that there's a guy out there that loves to coach teams that posses an elite scorer and two world-class bigs. Supposedly, he's had some success with such teams in both Chicago and Los Angeles. Call him.
