Inaccurate in my opinion..
D'Antoni wanted to play a system that neglected Pau early, but Pau was playing terrible, and I think it's due to injuries mostly.
When Dwight and Pau were healthy, they played effective, however, when the defenses adjust, you need effective perimeter players. When Kobe,Nash, and Blake and Meeks go down, its VERY easy to defend the post.
Let me teach you something though.
Offensively, our advantage lies in KOBE. He is the 2nd or 3rd best offense creator in the entire league and the numbers back that up
I know people don't really get the game, so I won't go into detail, but
I will not sugarcoat a thing. D'Antoni cost us about 5-7 games. Dwight cost us a few. Injuries cost us at least 6, where the personnel was not talented enough to compete with the other roster or the chemistry between the players were nonexistent because some guys NEVEr played together.
If you deny ANY of that, you can't even garner a response from me. KObe actually cost us 2 or 3 games, so you can chalk this season up to, Miami's TIME.
It's too hard for most sports fans to accept, but Jordan had a time, and Shaq had an era, Kobe had his, so lets not be fools here and let history repeat itself with no acknowledgement of what is potentially unfolding.
I didn't say that our failures this season were ONLY on D'Antoni. Dwight struggled, Kobe had a couple games that hurt us, Nash wasn't playing at the efficiency he did in previous years, and above all, injuries just crippled this team.
All that I said is that certain coaches are better fits than others. D'Antoni's prime offense is one that is faster-paced and revolves around the perimeter. In fact, D'Antoni refers to his offense as more outside-in than inside-out.
Kobe is one of the greatest shot-creators of all time, no doubt. Kobe was able to bail this team out more times than should be humanly possible. The only thing is that he shouldn't have had to work as hard as he did with as many minutes.
Now, to D'Antoni's credit, he did adjust his offense to better suit the strengths of this team. He was able to get Pau the ball in deeper position rather than having him play around the perimeter. However, this team was forced to practically run a free-lance offense, so it is somewhat unclear whether these adjustments were D'Antoni's idea or the players.
