D’Antoni quit under pressure and Lin wanted no part of coming back to the team. It’s not listed as an official date on the schedule, but the Knicks will be holding their version of Old-Home Week when Mike D’Antoni comes back to the Garden this Thursday and Jeremy Lin returns with the Rockets four days later. The takeaway from the opening quarter of the season: The fast-starting Knicks haven’t missed either of them and they managed to upgrade the two positions D’Antoni and Lin vacated. Together, the two point guards are making the same money as Lin received from Houston and are doing a bang-up job of executing an offense that has put on highlight shows in impressive road wins in San Antonio and Miami. “Kidd’s basketball IQ is pretty much one of the highest in this league and that trickles down to everyone else,” LeBron James said before the Heat was dominated by the Knicks for the second time this season.
