    But...who else is supposed to play guys, and regulate their mins? Lol, what?

    I understand that some of the MDA blame gets to be a bit much...but this post reads like MDA didn't wait until the team was like 7-15 to give his only true PG some spots mins, and you also make it seem like Lin didn't lead the team in mins played the last two games (after having played maybe a combined 30 mins previously)

    .....who else makes decisions on who plays? I think that actually would be MDA.

    The turnovers argument would be foolish if it were made tho.

    I actually don't believe that D'Antoni's coaching in the last week made the players better. Just Lin's penetration worked wonders. He's also can make exciting momentum shifting plays which probably hypes up the team to better defense.

    D'Antoni isn't getting the credit from me his time should be up shortly regardless.

    That is the essence of what he'd like to see his PG do in this system. Jeremy Lin is doing exactly that.

    Stop.

    Neither you or Fender know what the hell you're talking about.
    and thats what nash did in phx.

    Exactly.

    This epidemic on the forum continues:

    WHEN WE WIN IT'S THE PLAYERS.

    WHEN WE LOSE IT'S THE COACH.

    It's facking crazy.

    It was always about us needing a point who could run the offense. I've been saying it since the beginning of the season.

    Now we have Lin beasting.. and the same people are creaming in their pants over what they wouldn't acknowledge we truely needed a week ago.

    It's ridiculous, frustrating n totally not surprising.

    so smarty, he didnt "get better at coaching". He got a better point guard. The ball moved. There was spacing that allowed the pg to penetrate. for example, Imagine Phil Jackson running the triangle offence with thabo sefolosha. the system is inefficient. The triangle works best with a dominant shooting guard. Then imagine our team with a ricky rubio....the system made chris duhon get a nice contract from the magic and even with howard, he has never seen a game with 10 or more assists

    i know we needed a PG all along, shumpert and Douglas are not point guards i know that, but i geniuenly feel that D antoni does make really stupid decisions sometimes.. but so far so good and this 2 game win streak is proof a PG is what we needed, hopefully we can win a few games to get back to .500

    Did you start watching basketball today? The coach is the one who has the power to decide who plays and who doesn't play. D'antoni was a fool for not playing Lin when he first got here and he will even look like a bigger fool if he wears Lin out just like he did to Duhon, Felton and Shumpert.

    Toons we don't always agree, but you're making good sense.

    You should post more when we're losing though.. lol. That's fair.


    Isayughh and I are like the only ones who'll hang around and defend MDA when the team loses.

    The faster we get Baron Davis the better man, but he gets a elbow infection and more back pain... Smh

    I hear what you are saying but i think Jeremy Lin's quote last week in Postgame was telling.

    "we took too many outside shots and didn't work inside to get the easy stuff"

    To me D'Antoni has more negatives than positives as a head coach. I think he may have lost the team too if it wasn't for Lin.

    D'antoni would just send Lin back to full time bench duties so he could play Davis for 40 plus minutes.
