The New York Knicks have not been hot to begin this season. As a result, coach Mike D'Antoni is feeling the temperature rising.
The coach understands his job is in jeopardy as the Knicks continue to underachieve. With the talented Knicks limping to an 8-13 start, D'Antoni discussed whether Tuesday's win against Detroit changed his personal hot seat.
"The only thing [Tuesday] night proved is I could get one good night's sleep this week," D'Antoni said. "That's the only thing that happened. Other than that, we're still 8-13 and the posse is after me, so I'm running as fast as I can run. Hopefully I can turn this posse into a parade. That's my focus. I'm working as hard as I can work."
The Knicks have won just two of their past 10 games, turning D'Antoni's status into a daily cause for concern. In the final year of his contract, D'Antoni likely has precious little time to turn the Knicks around.
