D'Antoni Accepts Knicks Job

Mike D'Antoni is reportedly going to accept the Knicks job according to various reports.

I'm a little surprised by this myself.  I figured Mike would use the Knicks to drive the price up on the Bulls but eventually accept less cash to take over a much better (it would seem) situation in Chicago.  I guess $24 million was just too much cash to turn down.

Somewhere Luol Deng and Ben Gordon are punching pillows in frustration.  Somewhere Jamal Crawford and Stephon Marbury are giddy with anticipation.  I will say this, the Knicks might be a good fit with D'Antoni because neither one has cared much about defense for years.
