#Knicks coach D’Antoni resigns?!

@SportsBata ..nuff said

“It was a mutual decision to no longer coach the Knicks … conflicting visions of the club’s future,” the source said.yahoo sports

#BreakingNews #Knicks head coach Mike D’Antoni reportedly resigned today! D’Antoni and Knicks owner James Dolan clashed over the style of play, and the future of the Knicks! The Knicks have lost six straight, and are now tied with the Bucks for the final (eighth) spot in the Eastern conference. This would have been D’Antoni’s fourth year as head coach; he led the Knicks to the playoffs last year. Assistant coach Mike Woodson will take over as interim head coach. Woodson previously coached for the Atlanta Hawks. D’Antoni previously coached in Denver and Phoenix. The Knicks (18-24) will host the Trailblazers (20-22) 7:30PM EST MSG tonight!

“Dolan is blaming the coach,” said a source with knowledge of the Knicks’ locker-room dynamics. “Tyson [Chandler], Baron [Davis], A’mare [Stoudemire] – guys who came to play for Mike – or that system – are pissed. [Jeremy] Lin isn’t happy either.” – yahoo sports

The clash is really between #Melo and D’Antoni. Earlier today, #Melo cleared the air of his intention of to stay with the club and expressed his camaraderie for D’Antoni. #Melo never bought into D’Antoni quick pick and roll style of offense. Unfortunately, #NBA is a business; Dolan felt he had to pick between D’Antoni and #Melo, and of course picked #Melo. All the players on the #Knicks squad are obviously upset and very irate with the snipe move.
