D'Antoni plays run and gun where anyone and everyone can shoot
the Spurs and us play uptempo where we look for good shots with the PG controlling the ball and running pick n rolls and our secondary options are Duncan post ups and Carmelo isolations
I just finished watching the Lakers lose to the Magic on league pass. Wow, the Lakers were terrible.
It looks like Dumbphoney is already having an effect on them though. No interior D. No energy, no passion, no commitment. And Dumbphoney on the sidelines clapping his hands and shouting "Lets go, lets go" whilst the Lakers are collapsing on the court. And Dwight shooting threes? lol
"Just do what you do." - Mike D'Antoni
In my opinion, D'Antoni's philosophy of SSOL will never work because the best way to get out and score in seven seconds or less on the shot clock is to play good defense and get out in transition. He's missing the underlying logic that would make his system work.
...plus all the 3 pointers. Good 3 point shooting teams are successful because they play inside-out. They post first and then swing the ball to find the open man. Another thing D'Antoni will never grasp.
D'Ant is a joke of a coach, he also lost to Houston yesterday. Lin only had 4pts and 3 dimes. The kicker is T.Douglas lead all of Houston players with 22 point. The same dude D'Ant let rot on the bench during his time with the Knicks. glad this coach is no longer our problem.
So pleased that Toney Douglas scored the way he did against Dumbphoney. I remember when Dumbphoney slagged Toney off to the press and kind of joked about him which was totally unprofessional and uncalled for.
I wonder how long it will be before Lakers fans want him out?
