I have never heard of a coach talk about energy like Mike D'Anotni does. Any knick fan who has sat through all of these horrible loses will see a consistent pattern from MIke D....
1) He never understands why his team does not play hard and always blames it on energy.
2) He never even considers the fact that certain players on the team actually hurt us through long stretches....examples: Duhon all season, Jeffries all season, Gallo recently...and yet he still plays all of these guys that have done NOTHING and thinks they will come out of their funks.
3) He never gives any other players a chance...even when they do good, because eventually he will bench them and go back to his favorites everytime.
Everytime the knicks lose...EVERYTIME MIke D says its about energy.
Is this not the coach that stresses hard workouts from his team every practice???
The same coach who keeps saying that players will earn their spots by their performance???
How many players on this team have failed so many times and yet he keeps other players benched??
MIke D has no answer for us. We all know what the problems are. BAD PLAYERS ARE PLAYING OVER GOOD PLAYERS and Mike D has his favorites just like any political coach in a sport.
How many times can Knicks fans boo thier own players at MSG!
I know this is a rant but it has gone too far.
He uses energy as an excuse for everything and never blames poor defense on certain players.
