Mike D'Antoni has resigned as New York Knicks coach, a source tells Y! SportsAdrian Wojnarowski @WojYahooNBA
"I told him he was trying to make the hardest pass out there," D’Antoni said. "He was trying to make the home-run pass. He will learn."Mike D'Antoni on Jeremy Lin's turnovers, via the Post Indeed. It's funny, because that is the exact opposite of the problem the Knicks had with their point guards earlier in the year.
It's over. MSG-TWC standoff over.Richard Sandomir This seems like good news for a lot of y'all, no?
"I think it’s a little bit of everything. Everything’s connected. He’s just trying to feel good and having pop in his body. I don’t think he’s quite there. When he doesn’t have it, if you watch him play or run, he struggles a little bit because it’s not fluid, it’s not quite there. We’re not going to put him out there until he’s 100 percent or we think he’s close to 100 percent and can sustain it. He’s not there yet. We’re all hoping for him."Mike D'Antoni on Baron Davis, to Steve Popper Posted in part because it's a good, honest Baron update and in part because I just like the way D'Antoni phrases things.
"The only thing [Tuesday] night proved is I could get one good night’s sleep this week. That’s the only thing that happened. Other than that, we’re still 8-13 and the posse is after me, so I’m running as fast as I can run. Hopefully I can turn this posse into a parade. That’s my focus. I’m working as hard as I can work.’’Mike D'Antoni
Baron still missing stamina, timing: "I couldn’t play dead right now in a movie, if I was asked to." Temper expectations accordingly.Via Howard Beck Baron practice today, though. It sounds like he's pretty rusty and when he does suit up, he'll start with just spot minutes. Anyway, I love this guy.
