Rye Resident D’Antoni Out as Knicks’ Coach

Linsanity is over.

And so is Mike D'Antoni's time as coach of the Knicks. D'Antoni bought a house in Rye in 2008 when he took to Knick's job. His son plays basketball for Rye High. Last December the D'Antoni's donated uniforms for the boy's basketball program.

From ESPN:

"After a remarkable Jeremy Lin-led run that made them the toast of the NBA, the Knicks have lost 8 of their past 10 games. There's plenty of blame to go around, but while some within the organization are questioning superstar Carmelo Anthony, most of the fingers are being pointed at coach Mike D'Antoni, according to several sources close to the situation.

D'Antoni, hailed as an offensive genius during his successful tenure in Phoenix, has lost the Knicks' locker room, the sources say.

"The players like Mike as a person," one source said. "They think he's a good guy. But he doesn't have the respect of the team anymore."

D'Antoni is in the last year of a four-year deal and all indications are that he will not be brought back after this season — assuming he survives the rest of this season. The Knicks are expected to make a run at Phil Jackson, who retired from the Lakers last year with 11 NBA titles…"

 

  1. I don’t know, maybe it is me,lol…. But I can’t figure out – how for the life of me does Coach D’Antoni’s departure get a bigger head line than a City Council meeting filled with important facts and the School Bond passing only get 5 lines (including the head liner)???

    Mr. Sears, just last night and in many other Council meetings, the Council brought up yet once again, the subject of “struggling with how to better relay their message to their public”…. With complete respect to Coach D’Antoni’s decision, (I loved what I was seeing up until Melo returned)….I’m curious as to why you are not reporting other news that obviously effects us (RYE) much greater than D’Antoni’s departure?

  2. @Jim Amico

    When are you going to apologize to Scott Pickup? Mr. Pickup, as evidenced last night, has been telling the truth about your stop sign issue all along. When are you going to show him the respect you demanded the Council give you?

  3. @Opportunist,

    Please tell me this is your best attempt at SARCASM?

    The only thing Mr.Pickup was ever right about was the wait on the Feds…. and I emphasize….”THE ONLY THING”!!!

    And if this isn’t your best sacrcasm – I will say this –
    IT WILL BE A COLD DAY IN HELL BEFORE THE LIKES OF SCOTT PICKUP EVER SEES AN APOLOGY FROM ME OR ANY MEMBER OF MY FAMILY!!!
