Thank God is not financially viable, because he would be perfect for Coach Moron. Distance shooter who plays no defense.
Right cause Shawn Marion and Raja Bell whom were the cornerstone aside from Nash of that Phoenix Suns team of such game didn't play defense at all right?
Actually the misconception is that the only reason those Phoenix teams had any defensive viability had to do with the wing players, not because it was preached.
D'antoni had Shawn Marion and raja Bell, two pretty good defenders and the corner stone.
D'antoni may not preach defense but to say all he wanted were three point shooters that didn't play defense is silly when it was his wing defenders that could hit threes and play defense that factored into his success at that time.
D'antoni doesn't have anything against defensive wings, and he doesn't tell them to not play defense, he just didn't preach it and those players just so happened to be good defenders.
The fact that Korver is a three point shooter would be reason enough if you want to go for who fits D'antoni's style, whether or not they play defense is irrelevant in this case.
And it isn't up to D'antoni as much as it's up to Mitch. I doubt Mitch wants that guy, he's learned his lesson with Kapono and Meeks, you'd figure they are going after Webster for a reason. Especially over someone like Korver.
The idea is to find guys that can minimize Kobe's minutes, another one dimensional 3 point shooter isn't gonna do it.
