"I wasn't one of D'Antoni's guys," said Harrington. "It was an obvious thing. No matter how good I played, no matter what happened, he wouldn't mention my name after a game or anything. He obviously didn't want me there.We've talked over and over about the disconnect in the locker room. I know Al thought it was his team, and guys like Nate and D Lee thought it was "theirs." It was a bad situation for everyone. Denver is a good situation for Harrington, who undoubtedly wanted to be a Knick. He was a Walsh guy, but if Walsh wanted to keep him he would have. They needed to make the Felton move and maintain flexibility.
"When they only got one max, I thought I would hear from them and get a call," Harrington added. "I was obviously wrong."
That made Al expendable.
Like Larry Hughes, it's easy to knock the coach walking out the door, but without question D'Antoni is on notice from the fans even more so, especially when you read quotes like this.
