Thoughts on the Knicks and their new coach
The up-and-down Knicks have had a tumultuous season to say the least, highlighted by the resigning of their head coach Mike D’Antoni. Now winners of 3 straight since interim head coach Mike Woodson has taken over, the Knicks are starting to gel. Tommy Dee of the Knicks blog spared a few minutes of his St Patrick’s Day festivities to talk with Mike Giandomenico and I about the state of these New York Knicks in the post-D’Antoni era.
With analysis that only Tommy Dee can provide, we discuss the causes for the resigning of Mike D’Antoni, interim head coach Mike Woodson, and the possibility of the legendary “Zen Master” Phil Jackson being a candidate for the head coach job at the end of the season. Tommy goes on to explain the differences in style between Mike Woodson’s defense first game plan and D’Antoni’s run and gun style and how that will affect the Knicks as they push towards the playoffs and if they are a team with the ability to make a real playoff run. Be sure to give a listen to a great interview with a true Knicks insider.
