D'Antoni, who will be officially introduced as Knicks coach either tomorrow or Wednesday, had a two-time MVP in Steve Nash running his high-octane offense and all-stars Shawn Marion and Amare Stoudemire as key pieces in his system with the Suns. And he is salivating at the mere potential of inserting the versatile James into his very versatile system on basketball's grandest stage.
One person with knowledge of D'Antoni's thinking suggested he "would probably use [James] at the four spot [power forward] ... He would fit in anywhere."
James is the mold of the ideal player for the D'Antoni system. "Ideally," the person said, "you would have a bunch of 6-9 guys who can handle the ball and shoot threes."
