Knicks are bad everywhere, fire D-League coach

10 Comments

The Knicks are a mess.

They’re 14-60 and have already lost more games than any season in franchise history.

Their D-League affiliate, the Westchester Knicks, aren’t much better at 10-36.

Chris Herring of The Wall Street Journal:

Kevin Whitted was a former Tennessee teammate of Knicks executive Allan Houston, who once appeared in line to become New York’s general manager. Craig Hodges played for Phil Jackson’s Bulls.

If there’s a power struggle here, it’s clear who’s winning.

Jackson is in charge, and for better or worse, he’ll get his people in the organization.

Of course, the primary focus in the D-League isn’t winning and losing. It’s developing players, and it appears Westchester was successful with Langston Galloway. Thanasis Antetokounmpo is a bit more of a question.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Hodges coaches Westchester next season, giving Jackson a chance to get something right with the Knicks.
