Shouldn't a guy making 6m a year coaching at the highest level be a decisive decision maker and have a plan for his team. Every time I hear the guy it's maybe we'll do this, we'll play it by ear...

Expect to see Nate Robinson starting tomorrow night when the Knicks play the Bucks at Madison Square Garden.
“It looks like Nate probably will start as the point guard,” Mike D’Antoni said after practice today. “We’ll go with the way we finished up the game [last night], which I thought was good, good energy and then we’ll see what the rotation will look like, but that seems to be the plan right now.”
Robinson helped spark the Knicks’ turnaround in their win over Washington at the Garden last night. He, like several teammates, has been in and out of D’Antoni’s rotation this season.
“I’ve just gotta be ready,” Robinson said. “Just continue to play my game. The basic thing of basketball is to make teammates better. That’s something I’m trying to do.”
D’Antoni said that Larry Hughes, still sporting his beard of discontent even after playing nearly 18 minutes against the Wizards, would also likely get more time tomorrow.
“I thought he played well, so we’ll stick with him,” D’Antoni said. “Hopefully he keeps playing well, because he does give us a defensive edge that in January we probably missed without him. So we’ll see how February goes, but last night I thought he earned his minutes.”
