Oh, just how much things can change in only a matter of days.Following last Wednesday's embarrassing 118-110 loss at home to the Bobcats, the Knicks were looked at as the laughing stock of the city. Fans were certainly not pleased, pointing to extremes as solution to the team's early season struggles, suggesting Coach Mike D'Antoni be fired.Fast-forward five days, and things are more or less back to normal, with no one calling for the head coach's head anymore...not just yet, anyway.
