Manhattan Transfer

So, will you boo Mike D’Antoni or will you cheer him? What’s the etiquette for a man abandoning a listing ship? Yes, the former head coach of the Phoenix Suns did bail in favor of the New York Knicks, but he did it nicely enough. He asked first, in an I’m-telling-you kinda way. And as much as we’d like to cheer for the man with the whiz-bang offensive plan when he and the Knicks return to face the Suns, we think his system was/is an evolutionary dead end. A nifty one, but still dead meat. So we’ll boo. Nicely.
