D'antoni DID play him, the one or two DNP's are apparently put on a higher pedestal than him getting significant playing time after and D'antoni picking him over Jamison until he(Hill got injured) and how Hill was gonna be the guy that started when D'antoni wanted to move Pau to the bench but Hill was injured by then so that went to Metta(who played the 4 instead).
Do guys even remember D'antoni saying how worried he was he'd lose Jamison because he was picking Hill over him and was hoping he'd understand why?
And then when Hill went down, and Pau came back and Jamison still didn't play that's when he felt like the team didn't want his "services" anymore.
So I don't know where Mcten gets that D'antoni didn't play Hill much from. he PICKED Hill over the stretch 4 in Jamison who is the guy we all expected to get playing time over Hill.
Let's be honest if Hill never went down with injury Jamison rarely if ever would have gotten playing time. That was becoming apparent because he wasn't effective at the 3 when D'antoni tried to play him there.
Was it Jamison in there playing big time minutes against the Warriors in Nash's first game back? No... it was Jordan Hill. D'antoni made it apparent he was picking the guy over Jamison. So where did "D;antoni didn't play him much" come from? D'antoni favored him over Jamison after one or two DNPs and it was Hill going forward till that injury he sadly suffered
