Knicks Rumors & News

Most Knicks fans would be pleased with Mike D’Antoni signing a four-year deal to coach the Knicks.    The former Suns coach boasts a career 267-172 record, and is considered an offensive genius.  His Suns averaged over 110 points a game.  Ranked in the bottom four of the Eastern Conference, the Knicks could definately use an offensive boost.  I’m just not sure D’Antoni can work his magic in New York.

Cano seems to be coming out of his funk as he quietly has a six-game hitting streak, he plays a big part of the lineup if he’s able to get it going.

Darrell Rasner had another good outing yesterday and provided the Yanks with a win. He has accomplished more in his two starts than Phil Hughes, Ian Kennedy, and Kei Igawa have combined. He has two wins, the other three…zero. Keep the guy in …
