He's not a defensive minded coach, obviously.
But how can you deny the FACT that he gets the most of his players?
Even Steve Nash.
Amare is 2nd in the NBA in scoring.
a 13 and 6 PG is averaging 19 and 9
Walker and Williams have been sharpshooters off the bench.
Chandler is playing like Danny Granger
A 2nd round pick is the 2nd best rookie in the league right now.
And Gallo is still Gallo but with room to grow and produce.
I'll tell you what, D'Antoni may never get us a championship.
But respect the guy.
To those who wanted to FIRE this guy within the first 10 games of the season are morons still this day and must embarrassed for lacking patience and enough sense to realize D'Antoni is an established NBA coach who will revamp and turn any franchise into a contender. He's a GENIUS offensively. Respect this guy and be happy he's in New York.
