"...Wade, who played for Mike D’Antoni on the United States Olympic basketball team in Beijing — D’Antoni served as an assistant to Mike Krzyzewski — is confident the Knicks coach will revive a once proud franchise that has become a laughingstock.Wade confuses me. Pat Riley is pulling his hair out trying to re-sign the guy and get him talent, then he scoffs at a potential suitor.
“It’s a great system that Coach D’Antoni runs; it gives players a lot of free rein, a lot of freedom to utilize their skills,” Wade said. “I don’t want to say too many nice things about Coach D’Antoni’s style of play because every time I do, people take it as if I’m coming to the Knicks.
“But eventually, everything will even out around the league, and the Knicks will be back soon...”
I always thought Chicago was a more likely destination than New York, but again, everything is moot until he signs somewhere.
