    Nyk Logo Run and Gun?

    Today in the Arizona Republic, the following was posted about D'Antoni:

    "You know what? He's actually more detailed than people think," Kobe Bryant said. "I used to think playing against Phoenix that the players are just freelancing, but he draws all that stuff up, and he can have 10 options on one play. I've never seen an offensive mind like his. And I don't know any player on this team that doesn't think (he) wouldn't be fun to play for."

    Which leads me to think something that has been kinda debated here but not approached directly:

    Will Mike D'Antoni implement the run-and gun seven second offense or will he look to innovative an offensive scheme tailored to the strength's of the current roster?

    One would think that with the signing of Roberson he may be looking at the 7sec, but then you look at the drafting of Gallinari over Bayless and may think otherwise (although Gallo's versatility will work in the 7sec).

    D'Antoni has said in previous interviews (and I believe in the book about the seven second offense), that the offense was born out of the need to play to the strength of the players he had then (Nash, Marion and Stoudamire). He did not have this offense in mind when he arrived in Phoenix.

    His genius is in his ability to adapt and not impose, and that's why I would not venture to say that he will force a run-and-gun on this team. They may be looking to keep Steph, Curry and Randolph for this season with the hope of playing to their strengths and up their trade value.

    So what ya'll think?

    D'Antoni is definitely the best in the NBA at getting the most out of his guys.


    Unfonately we have the most stagnant offensive players in the NBA who should be terminated from this roster.

    Crawford
    Curry
    Randolph

    Once all those guys are gone, our magic will begin.\


    You guys saw how fluid our offense looked under Balkman, Robinson, Marbury, Lee and Richardson. Atleast these guys more vertistle games and make impact in different ways. I don't have a problem keeping them, except Q-Rich because his contract kills me. Q-Rich lost 15 pounds, so I'm giving him another chance.

    But the 3 fools Isiah brought here for a ****load of cap space and lottery picks need to go, for ANYTHING or NOTHING.

    If he does, we're not winning more than 25 games.

    Crawford plays for himself, not the team.

    Selfish: 1: concerned excessively or exclusively with oneself : seeking or concentrating on one's own advantage, pleasure, or well-being without regard for others
    2: arising from concern with one's own welfare or advantage in disregard of others


    That doesn't sound like Crawford to me. It sounds like someone who would abandon his team because he didn't get what he wanted.

    I just go by what I saw, weather Isaiah had a thin playbook or none at all, he still could have found ways of getting the ball to other people in tight situations. It really pissed me off to watch him try and play a position he had no business playing.

    I am just wondering what the starting line-up will turn out to be, innovation sounds about right with the crap we have-

    Default Who else could be effective on offense?

    And who else last year could effectively score besides Crawford, Zach, and Nate? Chandler was benched most of the time untill the end of the year so rule him out....Balkman, Jeffries, and Collins did horrible offensively last year. Q Rich shot horrible and then had his back problems so he was bad overall. Curry we know had a down year and no one wanted to pass to him. Stephon had his moments but then when the drama hit, then what hit was the shyt hittin the fan and Marbury had trouble producing and was throwin away passes and just had some really bad gamesand then got injured when he was doing decent. The chemistry was horrible which messed up most of the team offensively, WHEN CHEMISTY IS THE PROBLEM BECAUSE OF A COACH, BLAMING IT ON ONE GUY, CRAWFORD, IS FOOLISH. eryones gotta stop haitin on Crawford i know his FG% was bad and thats everyones main excuse but no one else could score besides Crawford, Zach and Nate. ALso Lee was decent on offense but did not help enough to always be effective. I think i ruled out most of the roster right there offensively.

    Crawford is selfish, he always needs the ball at the last minute, and he almost always fails

    oh stfu, dat must be da dumbest statement to prove that he's selfish, u should be stripped from ur freedom of speech after that statement, in majority of cases the coaches put the players in dat position so its isiah to blame not jamal, besides believe in crawford so they give em the ball, whether u agree wit it or not, that's ur problem but the players believe in jamal
