07:09 AM ET 08.16 | Mike D'Antoni has noticed a reaction whenever the topic of the Knicks comes up around the U.S. men's basketball players. "They usually snicker," D'Antoni said yesterday. "I don't like that too much. That ticks me off." The perception of the franchise is just one of several things on the list D'Antoni hopes to change. D'Antoni is here as an assistant under Mike Krzyzewski, and he's made an impression on the players he's coaching, many of whom believe he's the right man to revive the Knicks. "I think you've got a long list of players that want to play for him, I'll tell you that," Kobe Bryant told The Post. "He's just incredibly sharp. He's a brilliant, brilliant basketball mind. He's going to bring a system and now you just have to find players to plug into that system."
