3 things I didn't like about MDA.

1) Kept playing Kobe in that GS game after Kobe already hurt himself twice prior to his achilles-tearing play.

2) Alienated Pau Gasol the moment he got off the plane.

3) Couldn't get the best pick and roll big to buy into playing pick and roll.


You have number two backward, and it was even before MDA got off the plane.


And no one has been able to do number three, because Dwight fancies himself an old school post big, and doesn't want to play pick and roll ball.


MDA two weeks after being hired.

Quote:
During his postgame news conference, D’Antoni was asked what he was thinking when he left Pau on the bench in crunch time again. He spared no feelings in his response.
“I was thinking ‘Oh, I’d like to win this game.’ That’s what I was thinking,” D’Antoni said.


MDA 8 weeks after being hired is only coach ever to bench Pau permanently.

And people actually support this clown


Some revisionists here on LG even say Pau threw MDA under the bus, that maybe it was Pau's fault SMH.


Even if he did Pau has two rings, MDA zero.

I find this to be a pretty crappy argument.

A coach's job is to coach. A player's job is to play according to how the coach directs.

The best thing about MDA....................is that he's gone!


NYers laughed at us when we hired that clown. We should have listened.
