New York Knicks assistant coach, Kenny Atkinson, spent this summer working with JLin and was instrumental in preparing JLin before the start of Linsanity. Now, he is leaving for Atlanta and the purge is about complete. All of the "D'Antoni/JLin guys" are pretty much gone from the Knicks. The only holdover is Steve Novak. I wouldn't be shocked if he struggles and gets traded as well. It's so obvious there was a great divide in that locker room. I actually think Tyson and Shump were neutral.
