Knicks coach tells Fields to give Amar'e room
New York Post - November 12, 2010 | November, 2010
With Landry Fields, Mike D'Antoni explained that the rookie's instinct is to be forever cutting on the offensive end. Fields is always moving.
That probably seems good. But it's not.
"He needs to cut sometimes. But he's cutting all the time. You have to understand when it is to cut and when you don't," D'Antoni said yesterday. "Because otherwise you cut right into Amar'e [Stoudemire] and you mess Amar'e up."
In looking at film of his struggling Knicks, D'Antoni sees one major issue in particular on the offensive end and one on the defensive end.
Am I on drugs right now or is Mike D critizing Fields for being the only player to actually move off the ball when everyone else just stands around and watches Amare??!!?!?? Atleast Fields hustles his ass off and gets rebounds when other playrs are picking their ass, MIke D has to be the worst coach I have ever seen.
