The whole Nate-situation is actually an interesting topic. The last game showed us what he can do but also where his flaws are. Ball movement virtually came to a grinding halt, there where holes in our defense which where closed by other guys (especially Jeffries) or did not matter because Nate scored at the other end.
He can do many things , the question is just how to use him. After all, whether you want to keep- or trade him, putting him into the doghouse doesn't make sense.
Even if you do not like D'Antoni, you'll have to admit that you need some brains to be an NBA coach. So most likely D'Antoni knows all this as well, which makes me think "Why did he bench him for 14 games?" And even more interestingly: Why did he let Nate come back after such a long stretch? Was he just desperate because he could not play Hughes? Did they sort out whatever it was? How long will Nate remember what to do and not to do? etc. There are plenty of issues you can have different opinions about. If there is nothing left to discuss, we can have a nice little round of name calling just for old time sake 'mkay pumpkins?
