Much to the displease of many Knicks fans, Mike D’Antoni has announced that he will not be making a starting line-up change tonight against the Washington Wizards. D’Antoni lead many to believe that rookie sensation Iman Shumpert could be making his first career start tonight, that does not seem to be the case anymore.
[View the story "Iman Shumpert Will NOT Start Tonight" on Storify]Knicks fans have taken to social media(just check out DailyKnicks Facebook Page) to express there displeasure’s of MDA and his coaching style and ultimate future with the Knicks. Starting Shumpert could have suppressed some of the “Fire Mike D’Antoni” tweets but MDA is not in the business of like-ability. A line-up change may break the spirits of both Landry Fields and Toney Douglas, and with 60 plus games remaining, MDA needs his locker-room confident and strong.
