Although former Knicks coach Mike DíAntoni professed to love European players, sources told The Post he was against bringing in Spanish League point guard Pablo Prigioni the past few years.
The Post reported in July the Knicks had Prigioni on their radar for four years. According to multiple sources, Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald and European scout Kevin Wilson wanted to sign Prigioni, but never made an offer because of DíAntoniís reluctance. Sources said DíAntoni felt Prigioni was a third-stringer and didnít have the speed to make an NBA rotation.
Speaking of Mike D'Antoni...Lakers are 17-23 and just got blown out by the Raptors
Does any of you guys besides me enjoy watching them struggle ?
D'Antoni is hilarious when he's not coaching your team. Look at his response on why Pau was starting today:
I'd like to see them get it together. I love Steve Nash. They need to do something about Kobe though. He just kills them when he plays like that. Ditto Dwight. He can't be getting thrown out of games in the second quarter and he has to start making free throws.
Landry Fields had a good game though. I liked that.
It's bitter sweet. I was never a Kobe fan but I respect die hard competitors so much. That being said, I like seeing D'Antoni struggle. I hate that so many people got the blame besides him when he was here. He shat on Marbury. He made Gallo into a one dimensional jump shot shooter. He stunted Wilson Chandler's growth and he pretty much started Melo off with this bad teammate reputation that he's been trying to shake ever since he got here. Most importantly, HE QUIT and in sports, that's my biggest pet peeve. He quit and let people believe it was everyone else's fault but his own.
