Nothing ever changes with D'Antoni. No set plays. No lineups that have any sense of cohesiveness or logic to them. And the good ol' defensive breakdowns late in games. I'd feel sorry for the fans if it wasn't the ****ing Lakers. F 'em.

The funny thing is that the Knicks are still using his offensive system a good amount of the time, (see; last Thursday's Miami game). If the guy would just switch up his philosophy when it came to D and tooled his plans to his roster rather than an unconditional scheme, he'd have tremendous success. He has always been and will continue to be his own worst enemy.

End of the day it's the Lakers fault. D'Antoni is what he is and there was enough evidence on the table to know this by now. You don't bring in a system coach when you have nothing tooled to the system. Ditto for the Knicks, but I don't think the stubbornness was as apparent at that time as it was now. Unless Nash has another MVP year in him, they're in for a long season.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

This is from today's Adande article. Sound familiar Knicks fans?

It's not simply about effort, it's about having a sound defensive scheme and a willingness to commit to it. As John Hollinger pointed out, their defense is ranked 25th in the last five minutes of close games, which usually isn't fast-break city. Their rotations are bad, they don't close out on shooters, they leave the weak side unprotected. Whenever Dwight Howard leaves his man to block a shot there's no one coming over to guard the suddenly open player, or to keep him off the boards.

Could D'Antoni end up resigning from 2 teams in back-to-back seasons?

Nah. They'll wait till Nash gets back. Then when they finish at .500 and get slayed by OKC or Memphis in the playoffs, they'll justify it on the team just needing a year to gel in his system. As if there isn't enough available info on the guy to know that his sh*t doesn't work.
