    Great, now they get the effort boost from the coaching change right before they play the Pacers back to back.

    I'd be curious to see how Lin, Novak, Fields and Jeffries are going to play now.

    It'll be interesting to see how Lin does without him.

    CBSSports.com Report: Jerry Sloan has interest in coaching Knicks

    With the Knicks in mid-implosion(which they deny)and the most likely sacrificial lamb set to be Mike D'Antoni whose contract is up this summer, you're starting to hear discussions of who could take over. And while Phil Jackson will remain the biggest name in contention to conceivably "bring the Knicks" back (you know, unlike D'Antoni who has helped bring them from a laughing stock to the playoffs last season despite having the roster he helped assmble ripped out from under him), there's talk of another familiar name. SI.com reports that former Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan might be interested in taking over the reins at Madison Square Garden.
    While retired Lakers and Bulls coach Phil Jackson has frequently been named as a possible successor to D'Antoni, sources close to retired Utah coach Jerry Sloan say he would be interested in the position. Sloan retired abruptly in February 2011, and was pursued by a number of teams during the summer before resisting the recruiting efforts. In an interview with SI.com in early January, he said he was considering a return.

    Sloan's an interesting idea. If the reports are accurate from Tuesday night that the players think they need someone to hold them responsible, then Sloan's an excellent fit. He's also a master of the pick and roll and has coached teams to the Finals and the playoffs consistently. This could work out for...

    Oh, good grief, D'Antoni's not even fired yet.

    Let's not move on with life before anyone's died, how about?

    I understand why they have to do this. Coaches are easier to change than rosters. But their problems are Carmelo Anthony having a much higher usage rate than his skills have earned, the iso offense that he creates, Amare's massive contract/zero production, and defenses figuring out Lin. Firing D'Antoni is not going to fix much.

    Trading Melo/Chandler for Dwight, on the other hand...

    If you get rid of Melo and go back to a PnR offense with Lin and Howard...that would just be fantastic.

    According to International Business Times, D'antoni was slated to be canned soon anyways....

    Mike D'Antoni to be Fired, Phil Jackson Wants to be Knicks Head Coach

    By ANTHONY RICCOBONO:
    It looks like Mike D'Antoni's tenure with the Knicks is coming to an end.

    ESPN's Steven A. Smith says he believes the head coach will be fired within the next few days.

    "I would be shocked if Mike D'Antoni was the coach next week," said Smith on ESPN Radio.



    A few weeks ago, it seemed liked Jeremy Lin had saved Mike D'Antoni's job.

    Smith's comments come on the heels of news that Carmelo Anthony would like to be traded. Reports say Anthony wants to be dealt because he does not like D'Antoni.

    The combination of D'Antoni and Anthony hasn't worked since New York traded for the forward last season. D'Antoni was reportedly against the move when it was made at last year's deadline, and Anthony knew that his head coach did not want him on the team.

    Reports say Anthony does not listen to the coach, and he recently walked away from an in-game huddle while D'Antoni was addressing the team.

    Anthony isn't the only player who has a problem with the head coach. Smith says multiple members of the Knicks do not like D'Anonti's coaching style, and Tyson Chandler is the only player who he can confidently say likes playing for him.

    Even if D'Antoni and his entire roster had a great relationship, the coach still might be on his way out.

    D'Antoni hasn't had much success since being hired in 2008. He has a 121-167 record with the Knicks, and hasn't won a single playoff game.

    If New York has to choose between the two, they'll most likely decide to keep their star player and get rid of their coach. The history of the NBA is full of examples where a superstar has forced ownership to make a coaching change.

    In 2004, Byron Scott was fired by the Nets after leading New Jersey to two straight NBA Finals. Reports say Jason Kidd wanted Scott out. The Kings fired Paul Westphal at the beginning of this season after Demarcus Cousins expressed his unhappiness.

    If D'Antoni is let go during the season, assistant coach Mike Woodson would likely take over for the rest of the year. Woodson was the Hawks head coach from 2004-2010.

    Woodson is unlikely to take over full-time. Ever since he retired at the end of last season, there has been speculation that Phil Jackson would eventually come to the Knicks.

    Jackson is considered by many to be the greatest head coach in NBA history. He has 11 titles as the head coach of the Bulls and Lakers, and according to Stephen A. Smith, he wants a shot at winning a championship with the Knicks.

    Smith said on Monday that Jackson will coach the Knicks if New York asks him.

    There is no word on whether or not MSG chairman James Dolan would like to hire Jackson. However, it's hard to imagine that Dolan wouldn't want one of the best coaches of all time to lead the Knicks.

    It seems pretty clear that D'Anonti won't be with New York next season. Unless the Knicks somehow make a deep run in the playoffs, it's hard to see him coming back as the Knicks coach in the 2012-2013 Season.

    If D'Antoni's days are numbered, there's a good chance the Knicks will decide to cut the cord sooner rather than later.

    i blame Melo. How can your best player not buy into the system? Sound stupid to me. Melo is full of himself. So if melo didn't like phil jackson's triangle offense and he doesn't want to run it.

    John Calipari's already Tweeting his disinterest. Which means he'll be announced in NYC as soon as Kentucky's done with the tourney.

    Melo has always been a selfish player and he is not going to accept an offense that does not consist of him having the ball and four other guys just standing around staring at him.

    Though he should have loved D'Antoni because he never asked Carmelo to play defense and we all know Carmelo never wants to play defense.
