8. Hosting A Coaching Carousel from 2001 – 2007
Jeff Van Gundy, Don Chaney, Herb Williams, Lenny Wilkens, Larry Brown, Isaiah Thomas. In seven seasons, James Dolan hired and fired six different coaches. Van Gundy stated during 2001 that he had “lost focus,” while Wilkens, at the time the all-time leader in wins for a coach in NBA history, simply left after a 17-22 start. Larry Brown was fired after one season, and Thomas was a dismal failure.
