No adjustments and worse yet, no desire to play defense, he doesn't want lock down defenders in the game, he would love to have 10 Euro shooters who could run the floor and jack up blind shots.
'Antoni would probably end up benching Josh

No, I don't think his 15-20ft is Money.....and if 'Antoni didn't want Pau to shoot at that range, what makes you think he would want Josh at that range? You, Me.....and most of us would know how to use him but we have a coach who doesn't and that is what I'm addressing.

I love defense and rebounding.

Either way Josh Smith is younger than Pau. If we get him, I say he stays longer than D'Antoni does. Then we bring in a traditional coach who can utilize both.
