Sources: Mike D’Antoni Losing Control Of Knicks Locker Room
The New York Knicks are on a bit of a downward spiral, and according to ESPN, head coach Mike D’Antoni is losing control of his locker room.
Currently on a six game skid, the New York Knicks are losing the momentum they were riding heading into March. ESPN’s Chris Broussard is reporting that while the players respect head coach Mike D’Antoni as a person, they have lost faith in how he coaches the team.
It’s not just D’Antoni that is an issue with the players. Some are complaining about how much playing time they are getting. The locker room is in dysfunction, and D’Antoni, who is in the last year of his contract, will likely not be back next year as the coach of the Knicks.
