    Maybe he was just trying to be the lame comedian he is, but it didn't come off good.

    All I can say about Dantoni comment on Toney Douglas is if Dantoni knew how to coach TD would be getting playingtime vs every team that played the night before....I put TD along with Shump, Jefferies, and Tyson Chandler defensive Stop-level....TD offense is a moving without the ball SG....

    I would definitely try TD23 out in the 2nd unit. Give him some of JR's minutes for a bit, see what he can do. TD23 was our true 6th man last year and was averaging almost 11 PPG. Give the dude a chance when he's not playing PG.

    LOL, TD is a better NBA PG than the coach was...

    He needs to take his talents (or lack of) back to the Euro league. Maybe he'll have better success over there. Talk about being out of your league...haha

    I just thought it was disrespectful, especially with the extreme laugh at the end of it like TD was the butt of the joke.

    He's also basically implying that other guys DON"T know their roles. Yet another coaching knock on him.

    did i see that differently i got the sense that he was saying the we dont know what to expect from all the players each night except Douglas because we know hes going to sit there the whole time.

    so what really went down with him and Dantoni behind closed doors? im surprised Douglas agent hasnt demanded a trade yet.

    That's exactly what occurred.

    The "joke" was the reporters had just been asking him all these questions about peoples' roles, new roles with the new people, old roles changing with the new people, etc; then one segued into mentioning Douglas, and the "joke" was that ironically the guy not getting PT now is the one with the most assurance in his "role".

    Then D'antoni flat out said not to expect Douglas to get any PT, and that it's simply a byproduct of Lin and Baron being playing now; same way Bibby won't be seeing ****

    One of the coach's responsibilities is to keep everyone motivated... you can't just say "dude, you won't bee seeing any playing time", because you never know if and when you'll need the guy. Douglas has had some confidence issues and publicly talking about him "being great at what he's doing right now" (bench warming) is just disrespectful regardless of Toney's current status, basketball skills and late perforamcne.
