He was doing great things with the Knicks before they made the big trades they did, go ahead and listen to the homers at ESPN.
Pretty much. Not to mention he did good with the Knicks when Amar'e was out. If Amar'e was as willing to come off the bench now as he is Woodson then D'antoni would have won a lot more.
I love how ESPN always forgets to talk about how the Knicks were near swept against Miami in the playoffs with Amar'e starting.
Amar'e being injured is a big reason for the Knicks success not just that but we have two point guards, we have Felton which would fit perfectly in D'antoni's system and is obviously better than Lin and you have Jason Kidd who taught and mentored Steve Nash so of course he fits into the offense.
They are RUNNING D'antoni's offense to perfection. Which they did last year too when Amar'e wasn't out there. And now Amar'e is willing to come off the bench for Woodson when he wasn't for D'antoni and the Knicks will benefit.
There's a lot of things they aren't factoring at all when it comes to criticizing D'antoni's time with the Knicks. Pretty much why I'm of the opinion a stretch 4 in the starting lineup and Gasol coming off the bench would benefit us greatly. But Gasol wants to still be the freaking second option and starting center because that is what he complains about all the time despite not showing it at all.
If Gasol stopped complaining, swallowed his pride and actualoly was effective as a 5 on the bench we wouldn't have to discuss trading him so much. He's Amar'e 2.0.
