    Here's an interesting article
    A fantastic article. It sums up everything as to why D`Antoni is useless and must be sacked, and soon.

    Good thread. D'Antoni is the worst in-game manager in NY sports since Jim Fassel of the NY Giants. Expect the Knicks to fire him sooner rather than later, if the Knicks get off to a 5-15 start I think the Knicks won't wait until the end of the season to dump him. They didn't spend all that money to get the best front line in the NBA and listen to excuses about having too many new guys, not having a training camp to build chemistry, injuries or any other reason. Mike Woodson is waiting in the wings if Mike D stumbles.

    the problem is mike woodson sort of sucks too. His concept of offense is ISO, ISO, ISO.... maybe Walsh in Indiana can grab Brian Shaw. Even if phil doesn't want to coach lets get somebody from his coaching tree.

    The triangle needs great players to run it and I think the knicks have them.

    Excellent thread. I couldn't agree more. Right after the game against GS I thought we needed to do a 2x3 zone for the Lakers. Our guards are not quick enough to stop penetration, and by using Tyson Chandler's man as the pick and roll guy, you take our best interior defender out of the lane.

    I look forward to the day MDA is no where near a blue and orange jersey.

    Worst NBA coach iv'e ever seen, by far.When they hired this dummy i just laughed, to keep from crying.Someone tell me how in the hell do you get a NBA head coaching job when you act like defense doesn't exist.Mark jackson was perfect 4 this job, hell he said they (Golden state) haven't ran 1 offensive drill yet, this guy is going to be a great coach, and we are stuck with this idiot, SMDH.

    On this next one, Tyson picks and rolls without any conviction and steps into some waiting D, only the ball moves and finds Fields, who drives into the waiting D, it's kicked back out to Melo, who hits a shot over a man closing out...because no one went anywhere. After Tyson finished strolling into the paint, the only movement is Fields driving into a dude's chest, and then looking at Melo. Tyson has rebound position for a closer attempt, the Lakers have FOUR bodies in position for a long rebound.



    How is any of this due to a lack of training camp?



    These aren't even open shots...contested and no chance for an offensive board. I mean yeah...some teams sacrifice offensive 'bounds for transition D, or setting up your half court D early. But those offenses usually try to foray into the paint and get high percentage looks since there won't be any attempts at second chance points.

    What the **** is this?





    When D'Antoni sees this ▼

    how come a TO isn't called to correct the offense? Take note of the shot clock...that's not an early shot. 12 seconds have elapsed and that's the best shot and positioning the team achieved. Why is Walker standing behind STAT on a shot attempt...why is there not A SINGLE HUMAN BEING in the paint? What's happening right here?

    These aren't execution problems, they're a lack of anything to execute problem. This isn't sloppy play, this is "what are we watching right now?" basketball, like Reggie stated last night.

    MDA also said he wouldn't go to a zone last night because they didn't put one in....well...the Lakers are dragging you up and down the court in man...why not try a basic matchup zone, just to give it a shot? What's the worst that could happen? The Lakers shoot over 70% in a quarter?

    Where are the in-game corrections and adjustments? When you see your team playing like this early in the game, how does it last for a whole half?

    I forgot who said it, but coaches aren't supposed to tell players what they're not doing, they're supposed to tell players what they need to do.

    Does Mike do that? If he is, one of three things is happening. 1) The players aren't listening; 2) he has no valuable info to impart on them and doesn't craft a plan on the spot to correct issues; or 3) he's fine with what he's seeing.

    Now, of course I don't believe he's ok with what he's seeing, but instead of sitting and looking lost in translation:

    coach up your team, and make in game corrections before the game gets out of hand.


    And I don't want to hear about gelling and chemistry and all of those media derived terms that people love to couple with a good vocabulary and act as if they're saying something.

    In 07-08 the Celtics added KG, Ray, Eddie House, Kendrick Perkins, and PJ Brown. That team gelled their way to a 20-2 record in their first 22 games. It doesn't take long with proper coaching and philosophies.
    Great Post! Spot on! Rep +1!

    LOL Clyde.

    I agree this has gotten beyond not liking the man's style of basketball.

    This is basic basketball fundamentals. The fact that we have professional basketball players who are not executing things that high school players know you have to do is absolutely sad.

    All the stuff you pointed out in this thread is taking place again and again. We keep isolating Melo at the top of the key and are leaving ZERO bodies in the paint. It's no wonder we can't score or get offensive rebounds. D'antoni sucks soooo bad.

    Nash: Hey Mike, you do understand that you're nothin' without me??

    O'antoni: 7 seconds or less is a myth!!!!
