This team wins in spite of the coach not because of him. The talent level on this team is greater than the results. Torts has some good moments and some bad moments but overall he holds his players to a higher level of responsibility than the fans/media hold him.

Mike D Antoni got all the excuses in the book from some Knicks fans.

1. We were always told he needs "his kind" of players as an excuse

2. He would play Jared Jeffries a defensive fringe player huge minutes at times. Way more than any other team in the league would. Sound like Boyle?

3. When firing him was brought up people would always ask what better coach was available and point to his previous success with another team.

4. Could not get on the same page with a star player. (Does Melo=Gaborik?)

Well the Knicks finally fired Mike D Antoni and the team took off with an assistant coach (former head coach) after his replacement.
