Donnie Walsh: Mike D’Antoni’s Job is Safe

by November 16, 2010

After STAT ripped the team, Walsh did his best to hold off the hounds when it comes to Mike D’Antoni’s gig, telling the fans and media to be patient. From the NY Times: “I’ve made no judgment on Mike in the first few years, basically because I didn’t think he had the personnel to compete because of what we were doing,’ said, Walsh, who is expected to be away from the team as he recovers from hip-replacement surgery this week. ‘This team is a young team that has to be brought along a certain way. He’s trying to do that. In the first 10 games, I expected that we would be up and down, and we have. So I don’t think it’s time for me to make judgments on Mike.’
