He's already been to the ECF with roster that isn't exactly full of talent.
He had the best record in the league and not only was Rose hurt all year, Deng missed 12 games, Hamilton missed 38 games and Noah missed 2.
What exactly has D'antoni done that trumps that?
2 conference finals and 1 finals.
injuries are more likely to happen on defensive teams than on offensive teams coz offensive teams play with skills while defensive teams play with hustle and effort. Thats why defensive anchors are more likely to get injured than offensive players. Thats why amare doesnt play defense because he can score and wants to protect his knees. Injury excuse is not valid. Because thats how defensive coaches work. Because they dont have the IQ to create offensive systems, they just force its players to play hard and overachieve in the first season then sucked the rest of the way. Its players are wearing down faster compared to other teams. Thats how defensive coaches work. Thats why they are overrated.
