What makes you think Mozgov is a legit Center?

He is a raw big man, who at 24 years old needs time to develop.

You can believe D'antoni would play a center in his offense if you want to.

Personally I don't think he even would play Dwight Howard correctly, because he just don't play big men within his concepts of offense.

Howard would probably regress playing for D'antoni.

So I made up that a coincidence no Turiaf, Chandler or Shawne Williams was eligible to play the game against Detroit, thus forcing D'antoni to play Mozgov?

U really think Mozgov came out of the blue and started to play well?

Mozgov main issue has been the confidence, and yeah yanking him out of the line-up as if he was the main problem along with AR, is bad coaching.

A coach should try to win games AND develop players.

D'antoni is awful.

His offensive schemes disadvantages the team on defense.

What coach would start four forwards???

I don't think anyone in their right mind can support his "coaching".

For the record, I said he didn't make a "legit mention of the rebounding".

D'antoni was more focused on the points.

That's all he ever says...."If he hit more shots".
