Yes, I know, another anti-D'Antoni thread, but this is a bit different since this is a list.
In here make a brief con of D'Antoni since being here. I will add it to this post. It does not matter if we all agree with with the same opinions on him. Eventually we can discuss these opinions. For now, let's just make a big list. If there is something factually wrong (a stat or whatever, let us know). I'm not gonna add who posted these opinions, just a line between each one, to make it look simple. Everything is in this thread so it'll be easy to find.
-While Marbury wasn't perfect, and Dolan might have had something to do with it, D'Antoni was having Marbury come off the bench for Duhon in pre-season. The crazy thing is, Duhon wasn't even better than Nate.
-Playing Duhon over Nate was understandable in his first 2-3 months with the team. He was pass-first, had chemistry with Lee, and was a solid scorer. His struggles after the first two months should have definitely made Robinson the starting PG. Nate shouldn't have been "a spark off the bench" as D'Antoni said with that roster.
-Doesn't use fouls near the end of the game (Roy's buzzer beater being one example)
-Lets players jack threes all game long and telling them to stop and/or benching them (Harrington was ridiculous with this)
-Robinson has a good game against Orlando, then gets benched fourteen games because of D'Antoni's personal feelings about him. It's not like we had a had a great team and could afford not playing him.
-Has small rotations might have drained and/or hurt players. Duhon and Felton's play both dropped off after their first two months with us. I think both were playing forty or so minutes a game. Those small rotations also was hurting our chances of winning games since we didn't have enough talent in those rotations, and he still doesn't use all the players he should.
-He's biased with players no matter how bad they play (Duhon)
-He said he was playing veteran guys such as Larry Hughes (not that I was against him playing) to give them a bigger contract the next season. WTF?
-Doesn't use players the right way, such as Amar'e and Harrellson hanging out on the three point line. He cares more about his crappy system than doing the right thing.
-Lin played good against the Celtics, he decides to not play him in the second half of the game to play a highly struggling Douglas
Not a good in game manager. Doesn't substitute to counter the other teams moves. Seems he just plays guys based on the minutes he sets for them.
Doesn't seem to understand there is a different mindset you must have in a close game during the 4th qtr. Possessions time management become more important than the 1st available shot.
