Hi folks, greetings from merry old England.
I have just watched the game against the Nets on my league pass and noticed something about D`Antoni and I`d like your views about it.
Early in the third quarter, about ten minutes remaining, Melo stole the ball along the baseline, he ended up sitting in the Knicks bench area. The entire Knicks bench rose to their feet applauding, the assistant coach screamed encouragement to Melo and slapped his bumb. But, I noticed that D`Antoni just stood their with his arms crossed and showing nothing. He wasn`t applauding or encouraging the play of Melo. He wasn`t encouraging more of the same from the other players.
My point is this. Shouldn`t our coach be applauding this play and encouraging the team to play more like that. Why is he just standing there, arms crossed and not telling the players that that is what we need more of. Personally I am praying to my gods that D`Antoni gets sacked but I was wondering if anyone else noticed this and what do you think of it?
