He's not the best coach in the regular season.
He plays a 7-8 man line-up which wears his players down in the playoffs, and he's shown no improvement in the defense over his tenure.
A lot of his game calling is questionable, at best, too. The Suns just have the talent to overcome it.
When D'Antoni focuses on defense and learns that it is better to have 55 regular season wins playing your key players less (see the Spurs) than winning 65 and running your players into the ground, he'll be instantaneously better.
