Also, I personally think that he NEVER wanted the Melo deal to happen because he knew that acquiring Melo and Billups forces him to have to win now with a half-court offense that doesn't fit hit run and gun style of play. If it wasn't for Dolan we wouldn't have Melo now because Walsh wasn't ready to give up anything for him but Dolan forced his hand. So, don't be surprised if both Antoni and Walsh are both gone after the season... I think Dolan wants Antoni gone and he knows Walsh is Antoni's butt buddy so that's probably why he hasn't extended Walsh.
IMO it will be nice when Antoni's gone and we don't have to worry about having to drop/trade good players (Brewer/AR, ect.) just because the coach isn't smart enough to be able to run an offense around them. He needs the players he wants for his offensive style and without them you see how effective he is.
Yes, i said this the other day, he is the same player as JJ, but can actually play basketball.
I said it when it went down that letting Brewer leave because he didn't like D'antoni or think he was going to get minutes was a really stupid move. He would of at least bother Ray Allen in that playoff series. Then he won a ring with the Mavs sitting on the bench.
Anyhow to be fair that was as much on Donnie as it was on D'antoni. People love to idolize Donnie but he did give into D'antoni's personnel demands a lot to appease him.
