So the question is are the reports that he thinks Dwight is a baby for not playing through injuries true?

“I said no 10 times. Oh God, no,” D’Antoni said. “You should all talk to me; you shouldn’t go to a rat."

Sounds the like words of a guy who knows damn well he's not lasting in his current job and cares less than a shit what he says.

He wasn't talking about Howard.


You've taken the quote way out of context:
Quote:
Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni began the day wanting to know who was the "sniveling little rat" who told the media he had been miffed with Howard when he sat out the Detroit game.

For the record, D'Antoni said, he was not upset with Howard. He also said three days earlier, "If my lips are moving there's also a good chance I'm not telling the truth."

I suggested to D'Antoni that we have some kind of signal between us so I might know when he's really telling the truth.

"You've got to believe me," said D'Antoni, who has said repeatedly not to believe anything he has to say.

"You can go to some sniveling little rat, then, and ask them what I'm thinking and that's fine," D'Antoni said. "Somebody is going to you guys and saying things."

Advised that the sniveling little rat was on his coaching staff, D'Antoni said: "Well then, you got one, and I don't care. I really don't care."

I can't believe that anyone could read that quote and not understand that the "rat" comment was directed at whoever started the rumor that he was upset with Howard.

I can't believe you could possibly take a quote so out of context.


Even worse is the fact this is a TJ Simers article. He's one of the biggest pukes on the planet when it comes to sports reporting.

LA times had big cutbacks this year and Simers got stuck beat writing again and has done nothing but crap reporting since he started
