Are you talking about his first 2.5 years with NY? The same two years where he was forced to scrap & turn over the entire roster due to cap hell of the Thomas era, old age & expiring contracts? He's started well over 35+ players during this short period of time, most in the NBA; which throws out these claims of D'Antoni "never giving players a chance".
For those of you expecting & asking for a talented C? It seems like your "just fine" with "throwing out every "unproven project" to become our "future C'"...
Stop trying to "compare" unproven projects such as the Curry, Mozgov, Randolph & the D.Brown's of the world.. to proven NBA talents who's been nothing short of productive in Gasol, Jordan, Nene & Dalembert.
MDA was against the trade of Mozgov; but that still doesn't change the fact that he was starting a project rookie from RUS, one who only averaged 2 pts/3 boards per gm heading into the break.
You really expected to see Mozgov starting from day 1, when Moz had no USA-NBA experience of any kind?
