Knicks’ David Fizdale reacts to ‘Fire Fizdale’ chants after poor start to the season
“I don’t think about that. I was more concerned about our performance from my seat. I can’t be caught up with how everybody else was feeling.”
In the 2019-20 season — Fizdale’s second year as the Knicks’ head coach — the team has a 1-7 record. Though there’s a ton of season left to play, Knicks fans are antsy about the team’s lackluster performance in the young season.
New York, after all, is considered the mecca of basketball. And the Knicks’ home — Madison Square Garden — is considered the World’s Most Famous Arena. It’s a shame that one of its sports teams is a bottomfeeder in the NBA.
And not just that, Fizdale’s hiring as the team’s head coach was considered a high point in the organization. After all, Fizdale is highly regarded among his peers as a top-caliber coach. His wealth of experience includes being one of the assistant coaches of the Miami Heat squad with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade which snagged two titles out of four consecutive NBA Finals trips.
But so far, the results have been grim. Fizdale needs to find the right solution as soon as he can before the losses pile up.
