I shudder to think if 'Antoni was coaching the Lakers during Magic's early years when he couldn't shoot, the coach would've had him air balling 3's and then benching him
Take what they do well and where they play well from.....and use them that way......it's really not that hard.
Max and Marcellus said something today that surprised me. When D'Antoni was coaching NY, there were rumors that NY was willing to send Chandler and Amare to Orlando for Dwight. Apparently D'Antoni said he would have hated that trade. It makes me wonder why D'Antoni came here in the first place.
I will however mention what I saw in the game against the bulls a few days ago. Dwight had received the ball in the post a good 4 times in a row one point. Turned it over twice, and missed some shots. Is Dwight creating a misdirection for the place of blame? Is he really disinterested and wanting to leave? Or is he trying, but he just isn't that good offensively?
