    Default After watching Heat.... One thing I do like about Dantonii......

    I'll be the first to tell you that I want Dantoni to get the boot. We've discussed this enough. No need to go further into it.

    However, I do appreciate the spread out offense he runs, especially after watching the Heat just have ZERO offensive flow last night against the Bulls. The whole 2nd half they were pretty much going one on one. There honestly was no ball movement. They won because James and Wade stepped up, and Rose was definitely off his game. Spo is a solid coach, knows his defense, but is offensively inept. You know you have problems when a proven veteran like Mike Miller can't, for the life of him, fit into the system.

    I never really have to ever worry about us getting good looks with Dantoni. With the amount of open 3's we get per game we should actually have been hitting more, but we have some streaky shooters. I LOVE how much Carmelo opened up his game under this style, but it's also easy to fall in love with the 3 and completely forget about the paint. You just need to have a disciplined team (which Dantoni does not coach) and a PG who can sense when the team's jacking up too many 3's, and slow down the pace a bit. (Another reason why TD will never be able to run PG in our system).

    I will say, IF we hire a big name, defensive oriented guy as assistant coach, I might be willing to give Dantoni another chance. I absolutely HATE the composition of the coaching staff now though. None of them are defensive guru's, and what has Dan Dantoni ever done?

    Mike Antoni has to go. He is stubborn and unwilling to compromise.

    In all his years of coaching, I have never seen him incorporate defense into his philosophy.

    Getting a defensive minded assistant is not going to do anything.

    Do you think Antoni listens to what Herb Williams, Phil Webber, or Dan Antoni have to say? Nope. And he's been with those guys for three years. So it's even less likely he would listen to an Assistant he's never worked with.

    We have had too many slashers in his three years of coaching our team to give him credit for this. We should be attacking, not shooting a bunch of threes. Get in the paint and show teams who's boss.

    Our team has been a lot better to watch than Atlanta's at least.

    Question is..... do they even have anything to say in the first place? Mike probably just hires them because they HAVE NOTHING to say.

    When the 3 pt shots aren't falling, MDA's "offensive flow" is non-existent. The game becomes all isolations & everyone remains stagnant on the floor. The offense relies heavily on the 3 pt shot. When the shooting is hot, the team looks like world beaters, but when they start to cool off (& that's not an IF it's a WHEN), the team lacks the defensive fundamentals to win most games. Unless MDA shifts his philosophy dramatically this summer, it's just going to be more of the same we've witnessed for the past 3 years under this coach next season.

    Don't all jump shooting teams (Oklahoma, Dallas, Denver, etc) need to hit their 3's to win?

    First of all, everything you said there is complete 100% false, but I have to point out the most idiotic part. Not paying attention to his brother? Come on.
