    Props to Fizdale who I didn't like as the Coach of the Knicks No coach can fix that mess. He got his money and doesn't have to deal with dolan and mills aka Dumb and Dumber.

    You’re out of your mind if your think Fizdale deserved one bit of the blame. This team would win no more than 30 games with Gregg Popovich.

    Amazing how Fiz is getting a pass from the mainstream media. Dude was a flat out awful coach. Yes, the Knicks share a lot of blame as well, but Fiz should also be held accountable for the travesty of a job he did.

    As long as James Dolan owns the Knicks, the coaching job position will always be a revolving door. The issue with the Knicks starts at the very top. The team is dysfunctional because of its owner. And now there are rumors that he's going after Masai Ujiri of the Raptors. If Masai wants an impossible challenge, this is it. But if it's continued success & stability he desires then he would stay on with the Raptors.

    Everyone in the NBA knew the Knicks only hired David Fizdble because he was "one of the color" coaches Lebron liked. Knicks was hoping to secure Lebron in free agency with Fizdale but he went to Lakers. Knicks finally realized Fizdale is a below average coach and has no "connection/relationship" with any of the big name NBA players. Rumor has it Marc Gasol and Mike Conley during the end of their time at Memphis hated Fizdale and his way of coaching.

    Scott Perry has only been there for 2 years, not a decade, yes Steve Mills has but wasn't in charge and worked under a lot of bozos. Anyone who watched the Knicks games this year has a different take than these hot take shows that are defending Fizdale. The guy is and was a terrible coach. He got out coached by everyone. His rotations were head scratching. He didn't run any plays, no pick and rolls, no in game adjustments, he didn't hold guys accountable. These takes are coming from people who weren't watching Knicks games and why would they, the Knicks suck this year but to the fans who watched the games who had been rooting for Fizdale, he lost the fans and the team. There is nothing positive to say about his coaching. It was truly terrible.

    I’m a Knick fan but won’t watch them anymore- I’ve adopted the Mavericks until the Knicks get better. Now there’s an owner who does his best to put a good team on the court. My feeling is that no decent players want to play for Dolan.

    I wont be surprised to find out the reason why Kyrie and KD chose Brooklyn instead of the Knicks is because the Knicks made David Fizdale their Head Coach, instead of Mark Jackson.

  53. trey trey

    trey treyMåned siden

    The Knicks need to make Mark Jackson their head coach, give him whateva he feels he needs to win, let his pick his own players and leave him alone while he does his job. I might even make him head coach and GM to see it he can do both jobs, if he can't you take his GM title away so he can just focus on Coaching and let it be known that MARK JACKSON is their Head Coach indefinitely for years to come the way Erik Spoelstra has it in Miami.
