    'Antoni not talking to his players?

    http://www.prosportsdaily.com/articl...ks-297587.html

    Nobody else posted this, or I haven't seen it.


    Does anybody else find it odd that 'Antoni hasn't spoken to this guy?

    When the Lakers signed him, I assumed Pau would move to power forward and he's start at center, instead he's missed over 30 games with DNP-CDs including 10 straight before Pau went down.

    This guy is still a solid rebound, and competent scorer.

    It seems odd that a head coach wouldn't speak to an active player for three weeks. Does anybody else find it odd that this guy isn't playing and that the coach isn't even talking to him.

    Something fishy is going on here.

    For a guy that posts a lot about the NBA, you don't seem to follow things that have been going on for MONTHS.

    This is nothing new, Kaman, Gasol, Kobe, Farmar all hate D'Antoni, and at the trade deadline, management told the players to keep still and wait and let this season run it's course.

    D'Antoni is gone the night after they get blown out at San Antonio on the final day of the regular season.

    I think D'Antoni is an underrated HC. Never has the right players for his system but his biggest draw back is that he is an ahole. Guys who dont buy into his system ie Melo, Marbury, Zach Randolph etc..he basically ignores.

    Marbury would have been great under D'antoni, IMO, but he didn't even give Marbury a chance and didn't even play him.

    he is a terrible head coach, doesnt run an offense outside of hacking 3s and pick and rolls,

    still find this day hilarious

    We worked for a half-hour on (defense)," D'Antoni retorted. "You're starting to (expletive) me off. You're starting to (expletive) me off because you're saying something that's not factually correct. "
    the guy is a joke of a coach and makes Vinny del Negro look good.

    Or maybe was Phoenix with Nash the perfect storm for him. I agree that offensively he knows how to create a system that produces easy looks and elevates the game of PGs. However as someone who knows all too well about his inability to make in-game adjustments-lack of accountability-lack of defensive coaching-and inability to connect to his players... I truly believe he is just a brilliant but extremely limitted coach.

    WOW! You only have like four power forwards and centers available, and you haven't even spoken to one of them in three weeks? You see these guys almost every day! Just WOW! That is so unprofessional on the part of the coach.

    If Kaman were in Miami, there wouldn't even be a point to finishing the season. This is the kind of guy who could put a contender over the top, and he's just wasting away at the end of the bench on a lottery team.

    Something tells me D'atoni is intentionally tanking. I can't think of any other reason not to play the guy.

    Nash made Mike D's career, and it's obvious that he really isn't that good of a coach.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I will never forget that day. I seriously thought he was joking at first.... 30 minutes? Foreal?

    Also in Phoenix Steve Kerr wanted to make Thibbs like his defensive coordinator before he went to Chicago. He basically refused and ran to New York. He's a stubborn fool.

    Him not talking to his players only makes sense considering the fact that he doesnt coach them...
