Folks are asking about Coach Eddie Jordan's status. Here's my read: unless Ernie Grunfeld experienced a major change of heart the last few days, I think he's safe. He's under contract and folks all over the league feel that he and his staff did a great job with an injury-ravaged team this season. I know folks are emotional about this whole thing and want major changes now but take a deep breath and ask yourself a serious question: are any of these coaches who are out there better than Jordan? Another: did any other playoff coach go through what Jordan did this season with the injuries and an ownership that refused to budge on the luxury tax, thus forcing him to consistently practice with seven or eight bodies? I've covered this team for three full seasons now and feel that Eddie did his best work this season. That said, folks are free to disagree.

Ivan Carter. All good, except there are better coaches out there (Avery, D'Antoni, etc). I'll have more on this another time, but I hope Ernie thinks about it more than this.
