Mike And Mike Need To Keep It Together
Mike Singletary’s dropping his pants in frustration during his first game and now Mike D’Antoni’s feuding with Knicks fans in the first week of the season. This should go well.
D’Antoni was caught cursing Knicks fans after they started chanting for him to put Starbury in the game.
With some in the Garden crowd surprisingly chanting “We Want Steph” with 11:10 remaining in the fourth (others booed the chant), a stewing D’Antoni was caught on MSG Network cameras Wednesday in a tirade, mouthing:
“You’ve got to be (bleeping) kidding me. You’ve got to be (bleeping) kidding me. What a bunch of (bleep) holes.”
It’s unbelievable to think that he didn’t know what he was walking into when he accepted the Knicks job. This is nothing. Wait until the team hits its first losing streak. If he’s cursing fans during the first game, he’ll be rushing the stands like Ron Artest by December. What did he expect from a team with Starbury and an overweight donkey with a heart ailment?
It’s nice to see Knicks PR is in mid-season form. 10 mintues after telling reporters he was pissed at the fans, D’Antoni came back with a Knicks PR official and claimed he wasn’t cursing the fans.
“There’s no way I’d do that to the fans,” he said. “It was a great opening night. That’s what should be the story.”
Thursday, D’Antoni said of the incident “No, I would never do that. Hey, it’s done … I should do better, I’ll do better.”
Finally a coach with some sense comes to town, starts trying to fix the disaster Isiah left and the fans demand mediocrity. Hopefully the team will get back to losing. It’s what the fans deserve if they’re calling for Starbury to play.
