I agree with Stephen A. smith.... i strongly believe that D'Antoni wanted to bench lin in favor of Baron Davis because of all the turnovers and mistakes lin was making , but was in fear of the backlash from the media.
Lin definitely was a part of it. His amazing play rescued the season in the absence of their two stars, therefore giving Pringles no excuses at all when Melo and Amare came back. I assuming that's what he meant.
Melo kills ball movement and holds the ball and D'Antoni envisioned him holding it even more the ball!!! And so it happened, just look to the beggining of this season, Melo done everything he was asked, but hey it's all his fault.
are u fuckin kidding me, do u know why dantonis offense is a run-and-gun offense? because they run and gun, not because they hold the ball and kill ball movement. going through him does not mean going to him and having him hold the ball and shoot it
