I didn't click on this Dan Bickley article for a few days because I really didn't want to read yet another article about Mike D'Antoni needing to leave. I think he's a good coach. I think he doesn't get his just due. Why do people say Phil Jackson is a good coach? His 9 rings were with 3 of the greatest players to ever play the game. Yet when some people talk about Mike D'Antoni, they say, "Oh, he's not a good coach, he has Steve Nash." So what's the difference? Is it that Phil Jackson sits on a throne while on the bench and D'Antoni stands the entire game?
Anyway, this article on D'Antoni is good and I agree with it. I want to keep D'Antoni around. Just like the players, he's learned a lot this year as well. I think he'll be able to take what he learned and apply it to the team next year. And it will make the team just that much stronger.
Take a look at the article and let me know what you think.
