I'm not going to sit here and say that D'Antoni was completly right this game simply because playing 6 guys for 48 mins is suicide and realy thats why they took so many threes. The simple fact was the team was tired at the end of the game, you dont have the legs to go on a full on drive when u play 48 non stop minutes. I just didnt think the knicks had the energy at the end of the game
I dont think the answer is "play right or your benched" because than u have the isiah thomas era where people were afraid to be benched at any moment so their play was unnatural in a way. I think the defined roles are good for the team, it creates stability, and lord knows we havent had that in a while.
