Michael Garcia - March 15, 2012

From Linsanity to unemployed in the span of six weeks. Mike D'Antoni stepped down today as the coach of the New York Knicks, amidst a six game losing streak, a permanently frowning Carmelo Anthony and crumbling playoff hopes. As the old saying goes, you can't fire the players, so fire the coach (or something to that effect).

Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that it was a 'mutual decision' between D'Antoni and Knicks owner James Dolan citing 'conflicting visions for the club's future.' Of course, this being the NBA, Mike will probably land a job rather easily by the beginning of next season.
