D’Antoni Resigns

Just hours earlier, we asked if the Knicks should keep D’Antoni or Carmelo.  Apparently, the Knicks asked the same question and decided to get rid of D’Antoni.  Who’s next on the coaching carousel?  ESPN is speculating Phil Jackson and John Calipari.  How about Jeff Van Gundy, who was refreshingly candid at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference?  Here are the RAPM ratings for the current coaches in the NBA (Mark Jackson excluded).
