Mike D's big problem is he really doesn't have any sense whatsoever when it comes to using his players.
For example, everybody in the world knows that interior defense and size (and thus rebounding) is one of our big problems. It's why I heaped all sorts of praise on D'Antoni when he gave Shelden Williams minutes towards the end of the season, he seemed to finally see our need for rebounding.
And come playoffs Shelden Williams doesn't even play a single minute.
Coach started using Bill Walker way too late, Walker's a decent player but he only had about 10 games of regular playing time before the playoffs started...you can't just insert a player in and expect him to perform amazingly...
Coach heavily depended on Shawne Williams in the regular season but inexplicably sat him for most of Game 1. Roger Mason, Jr. played only twice in the entire month of April during the regular season but coach decided to give him some burn in the playoffs...why? Anthony Carter, who played well for us after the trade, got no time in Game 1 or Game 2...I mean, come on.
There are just some things that make you wonder if coach is actually COACHING or if he's just playing an NBA Live game with customized stats
