Steve Nash Expects Mike D’Antoni to Succeed in New York

Mike D’Antoni will inject enthusiasm into the New York Knicks and their fans, said Steve Nash, who won two Most Valuable Player awards playing for him on the Phoenix Suns.

"The city is going to love him, it’s going to be a breath of fresh air for New Yorkers," Nash said in an interview on Bloomberg Television. "They’ve had so much negativity surrounding the team, but if anyone can really put out some optimism, it’s Mike." [Indy Star]
