    Default D'antoni raises bar tonight: Blows game in classic fashion!

    Last year we had the foul to give, something we never used. Cost us a game in POR.

    Tonight....

    End of 4th.

    12-seconds left.

    Knicks leading 105-102.

    We win game if we foul and do not allow a 3!

    I saw it done in college the other day. Even High School coaches understand this basic math: 2 does not equal 3.

    SO, OKC calls a timeout. Obviously Durant is getting the ball and a 3 is coming. What's our plan?

    A) Watch NBA's leading scorer shoot a 3?

    or

    B) Foul and force OKC to shoot 2 free throws?

    Anyone guess what coach mike D'antidiot decided to do?

    Look at what coach Adelman is doing in HOU, with THAT roster. He's TEN TIMES the coach D'ant is.

    Let's face it: The only reason D'ant is coaching in the NBA is b/c Stern altered the game by changing all the rules to foster more offense. Got rid of hand-checking, lossened travelling rules...

    Coach K at Duke is bewitched with Mike D and has run his offense for a few years.... It cannot even get Duke to sweet-16 in college!

    Telling guys to run up the floor and chuck shots within 7 seconds is not a philosophy. It's a circus. There's a reason why NY cannot execute- b/c D'ant has no discipline. He does not strees it, like he doesn't stress defense.

    Even I-Thomas could draw up a play.

    As another poster mentioned: I rarely even see a play in these situations? Hard to even imagine what the plan was!

    This game is an omen for what's to come. Sure, we might get good.... even championship ready.... but we'll never win with D'ant. He just cannot coach the halfcourt (and NOTICE all close games & playoff games boil down to execution in the halfcourt late in the 4th).

    Only Lebron can offset D'ant. So, unless we get LJ... no shot we'll win a title for the next 2-3 years (until D'antidiot is run out of town).


    MD's SSOL system becomes CFOS (completely full of shi$t) when the game is on the line![/font]

    Oh, it was a world of bewilderment watching that one go down. Honestly, how does he sleep at night? If I was him and I made the choices that he makes, I could never sleep. Then again, I wouldn't make the same mistakes over and over, so I doubt it would even happen at all.

    Fool me once.... right?

    The guy WORSHIPS offense. Feels like the multiverse should be in the fate of a jumpshooter. Like he cannot demeans himself to FOUL a guy. Let the shot decide if his team should win or lose- don't disrespect the Euro game by actually trying to disrupt the other team's offense. Why double-team? Why foul.... BLAH BLAH BLAH!

    I just hope he's called out for this in the post game presser. PLEASE POST his excuse.

    For one day, I would love to be able to have a typed log of every thought that goes through D'Antoni's head. I want to hear the stupid $h|t that goes on in there, because it actually seems like he wants to lose these games.

    And I think everyone knows.....YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME.

    Wow that was a horrible coaching job by d'antoni. I follow multiple teams very heavily and the coaches for those teams wouldn't have been so dumb. On the plus though, Tmac looked great. Still seemed a bit slow here and there, but effective none the less. Why didn't coach play him in OT????

    You answered your own question in your first sentence.

    Mike D'antoni has been admitted at Bellvue hospital several times due to being diagnosed with defensivephobia.Doctors and the Bellvue medical staff have tried to treat his mental illness by showing him videos of the Harlem Globe Trotters.They even told him that if he played a little NBA Live, the high scoring,pseudo defense and fast pace of the computer simulated game would be a stronger treatment than Xanax tablets.They even advised Knick management not to allow D'antoni to hear the word "defense" because it would lead him to another trip at the Bellvue psych ward.And that it was better for D'antoni to allow the Knicks to lose games than have him catch nervous breakdowns in the middle of the court because Bellvue executives were getting tired of giving D'antoni his own floor at their hospital facility.

    Durant would make the foul shots and we'd choke anyway....if Mike D coached any game decent it was this one game.

    Durant was like Michael Jordan tonight and Jeff Green made some shots like the three that rolled in...shots that any other time would never go in...Thunder got really lucky on this one.
