That's why it makes absolutley no sense not to play a guy like Jordan Hill. He arguably plays with the most heart, effort, and intensity than anyone on this team consistently. Yeah, he might not be the best obviously, but that he brings it and actually gives a damn unlike most of our guys? Certainly!
D'antoni basically was saying he wasn't playing Hill because he wanted to give Pau a chance and he doesn't want to lose Jordan.
And then he said that Hill is a victim of the system but he doesn't want to lose him and he's being a trooper through it but the team is athletically struggling.
He basically was saying in so many words that he wants to play Jamison at the 4, and he wants to play Hill at the 4 with Dwight but wants to give Pau a chance to show something.
When he's talking about "Athletically struggling" he's TALKING about Gasol.
His entire press conference he was trying to find a way to say "Pau can't physically play in this system and giving him chances is eating up Jordan Hill's time." Without saying it.
